Re: “Current, Former Officials Back Wilkins; Cohen Responds with Own List

Although he won't beat Cohen, it would been better to stick with the issues. Having these old hustlers won't help him grow support. If you've got to list Ophelia Ford as an endorser, you've already lost.

I received an attack email from Wilkins, which led me to other Cohen U tube talks,
and he sure sounds like a reasonable, seasoned representative to me. Nashville reader

Re: “John Ford’s J’ACCUSE!

Was not Memphis the place where Martin Luther King was killed and the plot covered up. It no secret that White people in Memphis hated the Fords because of the political power the family had. It no secret that politicians take money from lobbyist. How much do they make a year 16 thousand in that range? White people stop being a hypocrite. John Ford was hated cause he had balls to stand up and say Hell no to your face if you were wrong not behind your back.

I read how the FBI took him out to strip clubs and used every entrapment in the book to get John. This started in 2005 years before he was convicted so what do you call that. Read the transcripts before you are so quick to judge. Using another black man to bait and clean out black memphis legislature what do you call that? In my book it racism...

So John pension I don't know as a legislature was wiped clean not sure. But love or hate him if he was with you he was with you.

I've changed my mind. Joe Brown is perfect for Memphis.

Re: “Joe Brown, Champion of Diversity?

Yeah, that candidate ought to be Joe Brown. Instead, we're offered Joe Clown.

He took a lot of heat for his statements about Weirich's possible orientation. His response was to issue boilerplate. Do you believe a man whose personal opinions on this issue are so low will actually do anything substansive once he has your vote? Why should he?

Sadly, Cracko nailed it - a hack and a (sad) sack. Maybe we should start a write-in campaign for Judge Judy, since residency is no longer a requirement for public office.

Re: “Joe Brown, Champion of Diversity?

Here is an article from earlier this year regarding UNACCEPTABLE misconduct by weirich's office which directly tramples the trust of the good people of Memphis:

http://www.memphisflyer.com/memphis/the-prosecution-rests/Content?oid=3597575

It is time for a change! Memphis may not ever receive a perfect public servant in the District Attorney's office, but that does not mean that we, the people, should not strive to elect a candidate who can do better. That candidate for a BETTER change ought to be JOE BROWN. We, the students, wealthy, poor, minority, and majority people of Memphis, will make our voice heard in this upcoming state election.

Enough shenanigans from weirich's office is ENOUGH. There will be NO MORE corruption of the judicial system from her office IF the people of Memphis elect a new district attorney in Joe Brown.

Re: “Labor of Love

I was (& am currently) a client of Amy's when I gave birth to my daughter on July 13th, 2013, my first child. It was the most beautiful and wonderful experience in the whole world. She encouraged and coached me and helped me trust my body. You couldn't give me a million dollars to do it in a hospital now! My husband and I have even postponed relocating soley based on the fact that we are expecting again and don't want to experience hospital birth and don't want anyone other than Amy. She really is the best. Beautiful story!

Re: “Current, Former Officials Back Wilkins; Cohen Responds with Own List

All this tells us is what we already knew, that Black LEADERSHIP in Memphis is as blatantly racist as white leadership, and occasionally more so. Steve Cohen, by any rational standard, has done a yeoman's job representing not only his district, but the city of Memphis as a whole. But none of it is enough for the "only a Black can represent Blacks" crowd, and so there is a price to pay. Although I am a Democrat, I will not be voting for Dierdre Malone, nor for any other so-called Democrat that has thrown their support to Ricky Wilkins. If it is about race to them, I will cheerfully cross over and support Mark Luttrell for county mayor. I have never heard him say that "only a white person can represent whites." So who are the real racists in Memphis?
