Republican Pete Perry Examines DEMOCRATIC Primary In HANCOCK County?

Look who's surfaced in Hancock County -- Pete Perry the Hinds County Republican Chair who had to defend his complete failure as an elections official in the August 7 primary on every news outlet in Central Mississippi. What's he doing in Hancock? He is examining the ballot boxes in the DEMOCRATIC primary where David Baria beat Scottie Cuevas by about 30 votes.

That's right -- the father of Haley Barbour's policy director Jim Perry is down on the Coast representing a Democratic candidate!

It definitely looks like the Barbour machine had different plans for Senate District 46. Rumors were that Cuevas had promised a party switch to match his voting patterns after he won. Only he didn't win. Now Barbour has sent one of his henchmen down there to screw things up as bad as he did in Hinds County.

Word from the Coast is that nothing untoward has been found, although Perry has behaved badly.

David Baria is a fine, smart and strong man who conducted an honorable campaign. It's no wonder that Barbour and friends don't want him in the Senate and will pull every hat trick they can to keep him away from the capitol.

    "That's right -- the father of Haley Barbour's chief attorney Jim Perry is down on the Coast representing a Democratic candidate!"

    Jim Perry is the policy director; Paul Hurst is the Governor's chief legal counsel. Colby Lane is the Governor's other lawyer on staff.

    If you are going to bash these people, at least get their titles correct.


    I stand corrected. And this will serve as my correction.

  3. Not sure if you are aware, but Hancock County and Harrison County are two different places. Should I disregard your headline?

  4. I've fixed that too and that is a mistake I shouldn't have made as I live on the Coast. Doh! Thanks for pointing that out though I'm sure it will happen again.

  5. Pete Perry, chairman of the Hinds County Republican Executive Committee, said many were delivered early Tuesday. He said some poll workers reported in sick.

    "But these are the precincts where no Republicans vote anyway," Perry said. "We apologize for the inconvenience. I hope people go back and vote."

    "You are going to tell me that there are areas were everyone agrees on politics. Show me this place and i will move there. Cause that would be paradise.

    Congradulations Pete, again you just reassured those who dont vote, not to vote. Their vote does not count anyway. They DON'T EXIST!!!!!
