They’re baaaccckkkk!

A few familiar faces qualified for various political offices last week. You’d think most would be embarrassed to EVER ask us to trust them again after one was removed by Executive Order of the Governor and others voted out by Clayton residents, but guess not.

A plus is that candidates who usually run unopposed, such as District 77’s State Rep. Darryl Jordan (versus James Brown) and District 74’s Roberta Abdul-Salaam (versus Oritha “Rick” Scoggins and Emory Wilkerson) got some competition this time around, giving their constituents options.

But despite being removed (along with three others) by Governor Sonny Perdue in order to move Clayton County Public Schools (and the community as a whole) forward during the accreditation debacle, former school board member Sandra Scott is back (versus Carlotta Harrell and Thomas Pough) and running for State Rep. District 76.  Thanks to those final four board members’ refusal to resign, ethics legislation is close to being passed so that no other school system will have to endure what we did.

Although recently voted out as district attorney in 2008, Jewel Scott didn’t let that deter her from qualifying for District 4 Commissioner versus Michael Edmondson (I), Dabouze Antoine and another surprise candidate, Lovejoy Mayor Joe Murphy.

Clayton has just begun paying the tab for former sheriff Victor Hill’s costly delusions of grandeur. But after being voted out in 2008, he’s back to run for District 34 Senator (versus Valencia Seay (I), Zannie (Tiger) Billingslea and Travis Spruill), and already has at least one supporter.

Unfortunately, Clayton still suffers the negative effects of this lot’s last foray into politics. Can we afford to re-elect them back into ANY political office here?

Those who cannot (or will not) remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

Don’t forget that Jewel’s Husband Lee will be running agaist her as a Republican, Guess the reasoning is If She wins he will still be in charge (since I don’t think she cas think or say anything without him pulling the strings.) and IF she doesn’t win, the Republicans will Vote a straight party ticket and he will still be in charge. WRONG!!!!!! It was the Republicans, Independants, and intellegent Democrats who kept him out of office and we will do so again. No matter what party he runs under.

I am speechless but I will not be at the polls. I can see the headlines now if this county elects Jewell Scott, Sandra Scott or Victor Hill back in office. These three have just ensured that I will volunteer for their opposition. I will make phone calls, knock on doors, and pass out information. We can not afford them back!

Its hard to believe that any of them would even consider running here again. They are obviously just looking for a job, not to help the citizens of the county. None of them showed any shame before, so I doubt they are embarrassed the least bit at running again. They are losers hoping to take advantage of the uneducated.

Ok let’s take a look at some of the incumbents and old players running for office again and play the game show ***WHO AM I ?***

I have sat on the House Education Committee since 2005 and did nothing to help the Clayton County Loss of Accreditation debacle. As of the 21st of April I voted no on a School Board Ethics policy bill. Who am I ?

I have recently been in the news for pushing Clayton County to keep C-Tran. I recently proposed a bill for a 1cent sales tax increase which would put the county above the states sales tax ceiling for the county to fund C-Tran. I propsed this bill that goes to vote in July while I am known for not paying my own state taxes and having my legislative salary garnished? Who am I ?

I am one of the disgraced former Clayton County school board members that would not step down willingly during the loss of accreditation the school system faced. I was also party to hiring superintendent John ‘Mr Slick” Thompson and paying him a salary he didn’t deserve. With my poor track record on the school board I think I can do well as your state representative. Who Am I ?

I am the original Caribbean Queen that got into office as District Atty without ever having tried a case. While I was in office I let cases get back logged and recently because of my misdoing someone who would have been convicted for murder was able to walk away Scott FREE. Who am I ?

4 words……Donnie Hood, Jewel Scott. I currently live in Lovejoy but I am running for seat in District 4 in Clayton county. Who am I ?

Napoleon or Walking Small were my nicknames. I cost the county millions upon millions of dollars because of my dumb decisions. I illegally arrested and imprisoned the former Sheriff’s brother. I owe several hundreds of thousands of dollars in lawsuits and recently had to file bankruptcy. I was know for not cooperating with local police or county administrators. Recently my latest gig was selling cars. Who am I ?

Kimberly, Of course they’re back. Lscking a moral or ethical compass allows miscreants the ability to show their faces in pblic. At one time in cross-cultural communities and societies there existed shame. Today no such Scarlet Letter exists in some circles and that includes the Lee & Jewel Scott, Antoine, Murphy or Scott.

Lee Scott, oft running for office in the past has used the most vile form of campaigning to include race-baiting campaign tactics, showcasing his internet (unaccredited) university degree, threatening citizens with shooting and bodily violence and offering voters gift cards at Southlake Mall after they Have “voted right”. His Tara Center on Tara Blvd is rife with violence that mirrors that of the recently closed “Spot” in Georgia 85. The Spot had it’s business license pulled recently for the same activities Lee Scott allows at the Tara Center, no coincidence that it is also the home of the Scott Law Group…

Jewel Scott, the inept former District Attorney embroiled in the Donnie Hood prosecution for political advantage. Her conduct in this case was turned over the State Attorney General Therbert Baker for criminal investigation. Cases that are now being prosecuted were long ignored IF the Defendant was an allie of Jewel Scott. Of course Lee Scott had his own office in the D.A. Office and used henchmen D.A. Investigators as armed goons. They terrorized citizens as evidenced in the persection (Ernest Neismith) of Brian Hood. Let’s not forget the attempted railroading of three fine Clayton COunty Police Officers brought before the Grand Jury for murder AFTER they were exonerated by Internal Investigation AND the GBI. Jewel and her dupe, John Turner tried to “set the decision” weeks prior to indictment but were highly unsuccessful as the Grand Jury returned a “No Bill”. This is just a little bit about Jewel not to mention her monetary ties to…

Joe Murphy, Mayor of Lovejoy, recently fired from Clayton County while he served as the “Community Development Director” (we see how that worked out with all of the successful development). The money goes round and round doesn’t it Joe? Ole Joe doesn’t even live in the district but says he wants to. Bet Crandall bray and Charlie Griswell are chomping at the bit to get back into the land for cash deals. This county was torn up by that wheeling and dealing and of course the protection for all of this fell to

Victor Hill, disgraced former Sheriff. Subject to the County loosing millions of dollars due to his numerous civil rights violations. His arresting citizens for purposes of persecution then filing bankruptcy when he can’t pay the millions of dollars owed (but he sure can pay the filing fee for office). Handing out guns and badges illegally and going to Vegas on the County Credit Card after he lost the election. His home, confiscated by Federal Marshall Serivce, lays waste as a monument to Hill’s downward self-destructive spiral. Hill now wants to be in the State House? He did however lock up

Debouze Antione, a Minister currently living with his mother having taken indigent defense at taxpayers expense and is currently serving on probation in Clayton County. Luckily ethics isn’t the only thing lacking when it comes to

Sandra Scott, removed from the School Board for ethics violation by the Governor after leading Clayton County schools right down the accreditation toilet attributing to the decline fo the County, it’s population and the education of the children.

Sgt Rock will work overtime in the political defeat of the above individuals. I encourage all citizens to get informed if you are not already. The County is on the verge of resurgance and electing any one of the above persons would derail the process. Warn your friends, neighbors, and family NOT to support the above individuals.

No shame! They have no shame. These people are prime examples of why politicians have a bad name. After all of the foolish antics these fools have put this county through they would stand before you and ask you to vote for them again without hesitation. I think they are get the embarrassment they deserve though.
There is not going to be a national election which means voter turn out should be low and typically the informed voter will show up. Some areas are beginning to see the C-Tran exodus and by Nov. I assume that the majority of the transient crowd who helped them get elected the 1st time will be gone. If this blog is any indication all of these politicians should be sitting at home after this election.
I must say it again though, the voters need to be ever vigilant this election year. Don’t let yourself get sucked into any of the rhetoric which we know will spew from all of their mouths. We know what actions or in Scott’s case lack action these people have taken while in office and the disastrous results those actions led to. We won’t let them happen again.

It is unfortunate that these fools’ dismal records can be gone over again and again and still they have other fools in their pocket that have a vote for them regardless of their inability to produce anything positive other than convulsive laughter about Clayton County. The voting public must realize the need for a better county and how to get it, by basing their vote on the candidates’ record as opposed to soothing talk. The feelgood factor must be weighed against proven fact.

If Victor Hill gets elected, will he force his staff to attend to his personal business on the taxpayer dime like he did with Jonathon Newton? Read his bankruptcy filing if you must. At least he can’t use on-duty deputies to attend to campaign signs like he did while Sheriff. But you can rest assured he’ll be wasting taxpayer dollars other ways if elected. More trips to Vegas? Buying shoes for *significant others*?

Victor Hill will win his election. His base is in that district. Sandra Scott may also win her seat. She still has strong support in the 9th Dist. Which includes a large swath of the 76th. Sonna will easily win reelection. Jewell And Lee Scott strategy is to outspend Edmondson. He will exhaust most of his money during the primary where lee will bury him in the general (Money wise). of course you can expect a low turnout among voters.

All of these allegations against these candidates were “Conjured Up” by those powerful by less visible hiding behind those puppet current officials. All of these candidates will win! The people know the real truth. All Victor did was fire racial profiling officiers. Noone believe the ethics allegations against the old BOE members; because if there were actual ethics violations those ladies would have been jailed. The counties residents loss its accreditation. Look at Cobb county 57 illegal board meetings, look at metro and very statewide CRCT cheating and no other county would allow the accreditation thieves take their children hope.

You should be tired of giving these same old people free advertisement by talking about them everyday on the blog. It is a waste of time. What you are doing is energizing them. You should be smarter. You sound as if you are a sore looser yourself. Stop hating on the people running and get out and do something about it. This is a free world and people do what they want to do and if you doesn’t like it then you fix it. Stop Crying and Grow Up. The people that you are talking about has a lot of will power and they are not afraid of the Political games. Maybe, you should join them instead of hating them.

Anybody from Clayton County talking about the school system loosing accrediation should be embarrassed because it was a flute. You can talk about those four girls left on that Board any way you wish but let the Truth be Told SACS was a Joke and they are still a Joke. CC lost accrediation because they had 1-illegal meeting in which Mark Elgart, the Governor’s Liasion, and 2-attorneys were present, he said they lack Governance – I don’t think that the Governor knows what Governance is because if he did the House and Senate under him would be demolished. So again, the people of Clayton County should be embarrassed because they lost accrediation on a Flute.
So blame loosing accrediation on the Rain not the 4 women left. Those 4 women were the ones working for the children. I will Vote for anyone of the 4 women left on that Board because they have a Heart.

Just because the quasi-affluent in Clayton try to dictate who to vote for in the county, don’t mean it right! The quasi-affluent is the very ones who sold your accreditation in hope for only a five day old school reform law; its been two (2) years for Clayton! Two years of “self inflected” public damage, such as higher property taxes, lower property value and higher millage rates; caused by the the quasi-affluent in the county! They’re the quasi-now because they have loss “Big Money”! Vote for the people that you know will look out for your best interest and not the the quasi-broke!

Some folks think that John was crazy running against Prudencia, but while we focused so much attention on that race, he got another MACE member elected in District Nine. I have observed John Trotter for nearly 30 years, especially concerning the school system. I told all of my old colleagues in the school system that there was always a method to John’s madness, and John and I don’t always see eye-to-eye on issues, but we are friends.

Clayton County Residents it’s time to get out and actually use the power of the vote to stop this. If we don’t, then I will have lost all faith in this county. The actual homeowners of Clayton need to take a stand and show them that we refuse to allow history to repeat itself.

Jimmy, I hope you are right about the C-Tran Exodus. I hope this exodus leads to Abdul-Salaam getting ousted. I’m still bristled by her last ditch effort to save C-Tran. I don’t want an increase in sales tax to save that money pit. I guess she can afford to be nonchalant about taxes since she isn’t paying hers. http://www.cbsatlanta.com/news/22804775/detail.html You and Nospin are so right regarding the rhetoric that will be used to try to sway the uneducated. Let’s not forget the “It’s Our Time Know!” debacle. Well, “We” had our time and look what “We ” did to this community. Take Race out of the equation and vote for the best candidate. Remember, it was White officials who originally started Clayton down this treacherous path but it was African Americans who sealed the deal.

Knowledge Is Premium,

I removed my kids from this school district two years ago. They are now enjoying the benefits of “premium knowledge” elsewhere. You know what their impressions were and still are today about their new schools? 1) “We can’t believe how much our new teachers know”; 2) “We can’t believe how much our teachers are teaching us”; and 3) “We can’t believe how many kids care about their grades and think being smart is cool. In Clayton County, you’d get bullied if you were smart”.

Enough! If the truth really was told, some of the best public servants Clayton County saw were those who were in office between 2005 and 2008. That is why they are back. They loved their communities,were service oriented and gave 100%. The problem was all the haters (many of them are bloggers, from clayton county offices,including the DA’s office, who don’t even live in the county, don’t they have anything better to do with their time?) who felt they had lost control and were ready to take it back regardless of who they hurt. That was what the loss of the school accreditation debaucle was all about. Check out who was behind that. The school system was not bad. In fact it is a good school system. Why else was accreditation restored in less than a year. Yes, there were some dysfunctional school board members. That was a politcal ploy to regain control of Clayton county and to perform ethnic cleansing. Clayton County lost over 10,000 families in 2008 as a result of the loss of school accreditation. It was clear if you get rid of most or all the minorities in the County then they cannot vote for their own minority candidates therefore get all the minorities out of Clayton. Now they are finishing up their work by taking away public transportation C-tran. Well, they were stupid and short sighted because all of our property values have fallen so badly we cannot even recover. Now our children are suffering even more because there will be a shortfall in the school budget. The new way to etnically cleanse our communities and keep contriol is to hit at the educational system on which most minorities depend for upward mobility. Cobb County is following suit. Wake up Clayton County! DA Scott was a great public servant who introduced programs to help the community. Check her record, not the political rhetoric and propoganda. One year she had a 100% murder conviction rate another year a 100% rape conviction rate. She permanently shut down all the prostitution spas in Clayton County in that RICO action. Never lost a case involving cruelty to children or murders of babies. The “backlog” gimmick is all that is. If Ms. Scott had such a backlog, why wasn’t the current Chief of Staff in the DA’s office fired the first day of DA Graham’s term along with the others that were fired that day for mismanagement. He was put in charge of moving all old cases because of his years of experience in that office and routinely reported that the cases were being moved. Well why did he get promoted to the top position in the office with an increase in salary that most people would die for. Question is, was he working against Ms. Scott and was he promised something to deliberately sabotage? Check it out! State Rep. Roberta Abdul Salaam is a great public servant and her fight to restore C-tran is creditworthy so is State Rep.Daryl Jordan. Clayton County, stop swallowing wholesale the political propoganda and rhetoric of haters. Always check your facts for yourselves. See ya’ll later!

Well, Well, Well.

Another election is upon us and the Trolls have come from under the logs defending the indefensible records of some of our (hate to even call them our) shamed former politicians.

Let’s look at some FACTS!!!

Rep. Abdul-Salaam has a piss poor record as a representative. Fact!! She won her seat after Victor Hill vacated it to prepare for a run at Sheriff. Fact!! She and other Clayco Reps gave a proclamation to former incompetent DA. Jewell Scott (for what this lady did nothing as a D.A.). Fact!! Now Abdul-Salaam is campaigning to have C-Tran reinstated by going over the sales tax ceiling for the county even though she doesn’t pay her own state taxes. Fact!!

Sandra Scott was part of the UnFantastic 4 on the School Board refusing to resign during the loss of accreditation. Fact!! Hired the incompetent John Thompson giving him a contract worth $500K adding up all the perks. Fact!! Thompson was gone less than a year later costing the school system addt’l money that didn’t need to be spent. Fact!!

Jewell Scott never tried a case as D.A. Fact!! Falsely prosecuted Donnie Hood for the theft of a flag resulting in Mr. Hood taking his own life. Fact!! An official request to investigate Ms. Scott’s office sent to the Attorney General because of the Hood debacle. Fact!! Left back logged cases resulting in defendants on trial for murder to go free. Fact!!

Joe Murphy currently living in Lovejoy serving as Mayor running for a District 4 commission seat. Fact!! According to county election qualifications the party running for said commission seat must live in said district. Fact!!

Lee Scott or Headly Scott (whichever benefits him legally) owns the Tara Center on Tara Blvd where numerous police calls have been made including a murder taking place on said grounds resulting a wrongful death lawsuit against Mr. Scott in 2005. Fact!! Has financially supported the campaigns of the majority of the disgraced politicians running again in the county. Fact!! In his first campaign for the District 4 seat Mr. Scott went on a race baiting slant sending out political flyers with his opponents face superimposed over a confederate flag stating that he flew one during a parade which was an outright lie!! Fact!! Made terroristic threats toward the nephew of Donnie Hood during the 2008 election season. Fact!!

Now make an informed decision.

Perhaps “facts” need to be redefined because what you claim as facts are nothing but spurious allegations. What back log are you talking about. That is nothing but a cover up for present ineptness and inefficiency. If the current DA campaigned on the basis of back-logged cases she first of all needed to fire the employees who were responsible for moving back-logged cases under the former DA and who did not do their jobs (her chief of staff) and then start working on those cases right away to indict them once she was in office not wait a whole year and almost half come out and say gee, I had to dismiss cases and let criminals go because the former DA did not move the cases. That is so lame. Well then, since you campaigned on a platform of back-logged cases, shouldn’t that be the first order of business. What were you doing in a whole year and a half? Sounds like ineptitude to me? and what of the Morehouse case that resulted in a not guilty? and why wasn’t the Lisa Dawson case tried as a death penalty case since it was the worst case that the DA had ever seen. Were we shortchanged? Later!

The voters are more informed now than 2 years and 4 years ago. They saw the race-baiting comments by all these individuals. They saw the disgusting web sites set up for the followers of these men. They saw what happens when one man tries to lord it over the BOE or the law enforcement (DA and Sheriff)of our county. They rejected you and your ideas – then – and will hopefully do the same this summer and this fall.

Speaking of Hope – there are signs popping up in the county “Hope is coming” – anyone want to argue against the fact that these are Scott signs. Hope for who?

Mike,

First, obtaining accreditation has nothing to do with performance in the classroom. Sure, CCPS may have an intact BOE and personnel that follow policy but performance in the classroom tells a COMPLETELY different story. Clayton County schools are terrible! How can one say with a straight face that we have a good school system?!! Compared to what? The basis for our underachieving students can be directly attributed to the attitudes of those raising them. But it can also be attributed to administration and the teachers we have now. Status quo is acceptable to most in the county so I never expect it to change anytime soon because “we’re not as bad as we used to be”. Really.

Second, cutting and pasting your information from pro-hill/scott handouts shows your ignorance. Do your homework and quit drinking the Kool-Aid. They’ve been nothing but an embarrassment to this county. What makes you think they’ve changed or could do different?

The ONLY racial profiling being done that day Was by the little dictator. Just like another little dictator in Nazi Germany, Victor Wanted racial purity. Only he wanted the race to be Black. Just like people rose against Hitler when he used unethical methods to remove those HE deemed were not of the master race.. The people rose up against Victor when HE used illegal and unethical methods to remove those whose skin did not match his. The saddest thing about the whole mess If he had not thrown his imaginary weight around and had snipers on the roof tops and sent these people home in the prison bus nobody would have cared he fired the deputies. But then, he Is a LITTLE dictator. isn’t he?

Victor Hill was a great Sheriff. The man was set up for failure immediately after winning the election from Stanley Tuggle. Tuggle and others within the Sheriff”s Office were so upset that he was coming in, they began a campaign to undermine Sheriff Hill before he took Office. The return the crime scene unit and the drug task force unit, along with the funds that run that unit back to the police dept. These units had been at the Sheriff’s Office for years. Slackers who hadn’t worked in over 20 years were forced to actually earn their paychecks, by Sheriff Hill and they resented that. So, they beagn to sabotage everything effort he made to rid this county of crime. Crime was going down under Sheriff Hill, now look at it. When you can’t control a man of integrity, then people start a campaign to destroy you. Former Chief Jeff Turner was a puppet for the commissioner’s against Sheriff Hill. They talked about Hill going to jail. Turner ended up being closer to going to jail, than Hill ever was. Sheriff Kimbrough is the WEAKEST Sheriff ever!!!!!!! Crime in this county is rampant. Doors being kicked in in brad daylight, motorist carjacked and shot in broad dayliight in downtown Jonesboro. Drugs dealers and gang members are runing amok in this county. Sheriff Hill had all these criminals on the run. They political people who didn’t like him accused Sheriff Hill of stealing guns, money, drugs, paintings and the sunlight in the sky. Sheriff Kimbrough got on T.V. and stated that he had called in the GBI and FBI. HAS ANYONE HEARD ANY RESULTS FROM THAT? An audit was done of the Sheriff’s Office and everything was okay! Nothing was missing! FBI came in, results nothing was going on. The public was never told about this, because he did no wrong. The only thing they have to hang there hats on was firings and a lawsuit to a former Sheriff’s brother. If the arrest wasn’t legal, WHY DID THE JUDGE GRANT THE WARRANT PRIOR TO THE ARREST. IF THE FRUITS OF THE CRIME WERE NOT PRESENT THEN WHY ISSUE THE WARRANT. Victor Hill, I’m glad to see you back! You should have never left. You still have the support of me and others in the county. I keep myself informed and I know how to separate fact from fiction. You always have and will continue to have my support! I encourage the citizens to don’t always believe what the media tells you.

@ Politically Sorry oops Savvy.

I am so glad my name came out of your mouth. Get your time line straight first off. It was the UnFantastic 4 that seated Thompson. Remember they did it illegally at first and then had to call another meeting to instate him. Who gives some a $285,000 14 month contract with perks that made it worth $500K!!? Who? Someone like Sandra Scott did. Shows how much she respects taxpayer money.

Sandra Scott is a political disgrace & before you say I am attacking her as a person I am attacking her political record. She has no honor and should not be running for any political office in Clayton County. I know what your’re about Mrs. Scott…..I heard you when Warren Ballentine was in town at the church in Conelly. I know exactly what you’re about……….MONEY!!

Donnie Brasco,

You’re right about one thing. Walking Small did have criminals on the run. Running amok across the county whenever/wherever they wanted that is. He with his tag team buddy DA Jewell Scott (er… DA Lee Scott) let them run rampant throughout the county failing to do his job serving warrants. Vic’s brilliant little brain thought that he would be more productive by giving guns and badges to friends with no law enforcement experience and catching these felons during random vehicle stops for broken tail lights rather than tracking them down with known addresses. Good thing he invested in that tank, focused on massage parlors, and went out promoting himself with things as productive as the “Hear O’Israel Show”. Great use of time and resources.

SA, Who did Sheriff Hill issue guns too? There were no missing weapons! STOP SPREADING LIES! Kem Kimbrough told these lies on day one in order to make himself look good. But what you fail to mention is, a forensic audit was conducted and nothing was missing. The public never was told this. It was finally mentioned recently by Alex Cohillas when he was talking about missing euipment at the Police Dept. He stated that an audit was conducted at the Sheriff’s Office and it turned out fine. If Sheriff Hill was such a heinous criminal, Why hasn’t he been arrested? That was the plan of Eldrin Bell, Jeff Turner and Kem Kimbrough. Kimbrough’s plan was to arrest Hill on his first day in office. It’s been over two years and he is still free.

Donnie Brascoe, the only thing Victor was great at was making himself look foolish and the only one who set him up for a fall was himself. You can not be serious. The only thing smaller than his stature was his character. He set himself up for a fall with all of the crazy stunts he pulled.
He ran and hid under a rock after being told by numerous judges, “you are wrong.” A man of character stands up for what he believes and when proven wrong he accepts it and moves on. Time after time he refused to believe that someone else could tell him he was wrong. No character, no shame ,and no he won’t get re-elected.

Wow! the scumbags came out of the woodwork in a hurry. Times are tough out there looking for a job, so they figure they can con Clayton County voters again. Here is a tip for Lee, Jewel, Victor, and Sandra. Spend all your money trying to get elected. It will never happen. You are finished here race baiters.
