Stories are being confirmed that the ballots from Rowan showed up without the official seal. With all of the overseers, how can that happen???

in my city that box would have been tossed and the returning officer detained 4 hours from rowan to city hall ? they all had to sign for the seals and to guard them with there life , the DOJ watchers have vidio of all the goings on , the search for a broken seal is on , the box also had GPS without anyones knowing it was there ,the missing 4 hours ?wonder where that box went? could have been a box swap too

Looking like Dupree can steal enough votes to "win" at the local level but can't steal enough to make it to the governor's mansion.

Hattiesburg has a lot of corrupt officials and "power people". They want to be big time but can't so they have to do it in small town MS. The downtown mafia (attorneys, businessmen, hospital administrators, some law enforcement leaders) are behind Dupree. Small timers outside of this pond but they are destroying this town. Hattiesburg will never be more than it is until someone cleans house and some of these downtowners age on out. Good old boy politics is alive and well here.

Here we go again!!!!! Dupree is cheating just as before and people are sitting backing taking it. The Rowan box should be thrown out along with all affidavit votes and absentee ballots! Can anyone say SCAM!!!!! Guess we shall see but I hope Dave Ware sticks to his guns and doesn't let Dupree get away with this yet AGAIN!!!!

All those progressive Whites that put DuPree over the top in 2001, most of them live out in Lamar County now.

Let this be a lesson to you, Pinkie: Once your feelgood vote for the black candidate puts him in office, your people won't get that office back again; go ahead and put the For Sale sign up in your yard and get out before the value of your house plummets.

Hattiesburg used to be such a sweet little place to live. Jackson will soon be renamed "South Detroit." What shall we name Hattiesburg, then? "New Gary"?

Now we have a black man saying he went to vote and found out someone had already voted in his name!!! Awesome for coming forward and I wld like to shake his hand! Maybe being a black man, he can reach the people who voted for Dupree just because of his skin color is te same as theirs! He even realized why his wife voted for Dave Ware and he actually said he wished he wld have voted for him too. That means we have a hope and a prayer that people are finally starting to wake up and see Dupree and his cronies for what they really are!!! I read on Hattiesburg Patriot and saw a quote from johnny Dupree in 2011. Yal should check it out. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Check it out......hattiesburg patriot on Facebook.

This election in Hattiesburg is the future of all elections as we move increasingly away from being the USA and move increasing toward becoming Bantustan with a tribal village big chief.

Broach the subject with everyone you talk to. Make them aware. Ask them questions about it.

Why would somebody try to steal an election -- twice?

Did you ever notice you don't hear about antics and deceit like this in Portland? in Salt Lake City? Why is that? How can that be?

By asking open-ended questions like this, it will make some people think. It will make some people come out and say what they've been thinking to themselves. For them, saying it once makes it easier to say again later. And when they say it again later, they'll pass it along to someone else. Little by little, people will become aware; people will know that others just like them agree with them, think the same things; and that what they are thinking, despite the mainstream media spin that only snaggle-toothed redneck cretins think these things, is that they majority of us are thinking and already knowing. At some point, we will reach a critical mass and things will begin to change. Perhaps it won't be too late.

There are some people who just will not see, their vision clouded by football or Duck Dynasty or Honey Boo Boo. They are constantly guilt-tripped into thinking there is some other explanation: poverty, education, "bad" neighborhood. Don't dwell on it with them. Some of them will come around when they see that the tide is changing. Many of these, especially females, won't hold to what they think is an opinion that is not popular or out of the mainstream.

Your eyes aren't lying to you; the media is.

Exactly!!! The media is my biggest issue when it comes to feeding the corruption in Hattiesburg and everywhere else for that matter! Have you noticed WDAM never reported on the racist flyer Dupree's team put out before the June 4th election? They never reported on Debrah Delgato 938.oo dollar water bill that she didn't pay for a year. They didn't report on Kennerh Fairely Jr.'s 10,000 dollar "raise" either nor did they report on the sex offender who worked for Dupree who attacked a cameraman when a white van with Georgia plates showed up and unloaded people to get absentee ballots! It's one thing after another and yet they never reported on it! I have called, emailed and text WDAM and have had no response from them at all! I guess as long as they keep Johnny Dupree looking and smelling like roses then they are safe! It's complete BS and I'm sick to death of it!!!!

The people at WDAM like Swan are not going to allow a little honest reporting to get in the way of their support for Dupree. Evidently Johnny has a LOT of promises out there...

I'm sure everyone has heard about the "protest" yesterday at city hall but I have one question! This guy Pastor Henderson, where the hell does he get off? I wonder how much his tune would change if Ware is declared the winner? Wonder if he would be so nonchalant and humorous about it then? I WANT to hear from Ware but I also understand why he is being quiet. I am still livid with this whole damn thing and it fills me with disgust to see Jonny Dupree on tv smiling his crooked grin knowing damn well he is full of crap!!!! No seal, no deal!!!!!! Absolutely!!!!!! I'm waiting for Kim Bradley to stand up and make a huge fuss over this and get it done right! I got a feeling he knows a lot of things that could throw Johnny Dupree in jail (along with all the other city counsel members who know the same things) so maybe the truth will come to light sooner than we think because I think this should be "the last straw" for the people of Hattiesburg!!! Slime, crime and grime??? WELCOME TO HATTIESBURG!!!!

Dupree's Hattiesburg, in the way it looks and the way it is run, appears to resemble more and more every day some African collection of tribes called a country like Kenya or Zimbabwe. Indeed, Harare, capital of Zimbabwe, has been called "sunshine city turned sewage farm," and Dupree has driven Hattiesburg down the same road.

But then you didn't expect any different, did you?

I support the name changing the name of Hattiesburg -- which is, after all, only the city's slave name -- to New Africa.

Screw Hattiesburg. Status quo is what the public wants, so be it. Dupree has done nothing to better the city and will contine on that path. Johnny now you have to pay up... Your cronies don't come cheap!

I AM LIVID!!! How can they give him this election? How is this man and his cronies untouchable? When did he get "above the law" status ? I am in completely shock knowing what he has gotten away with yet again! How stupid can people be to believe he actually won this election? He CANT WIN IN A FAIR ELECTION plain and simple! The Rowan box should have never been allowed to stand nor it's votes counted!!!! This is treachery at its best!!! DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!! Please God, make Dupree and his cronies pay for their lies and blatant abuse of power and let it happen on camera and on paper for the whole world to see ASAP!!!!
