Re: “Halbert Defends Mongo, Channel 5, Calls Wharton Complaint "Strange"

Actually, DuhB, I had rather a candidate propose and do what Mongo has on his website than what Willie Herenton and his band of theives have done over the past two decades.

One thing I've not heard AC say is that he will rat out and fire all the Herenton cronies who have been living large (and probably illegally) at the public trough.

Will AC do this? I dont know. I think....THINK....AC is a good man, but I know he's also a colleague and friend of many of the people who need to be gone.

Tell us, AC, will you do what Mongo has promised and "flush the turds"?

Re: “Council Seems Ready as Lowery Calls Anew for Jefferson's Discharge

Mr. Baker,

At the next "debate," ask Mr. Lowery if he will fire Elbert Jefferson if he is elected mayor? We al know he'll say yes, and that's good.

Ask the same question of AC Wharton. Most likely, he'll quibble and not give a straight answer because he's friends of, and indebted to, all the same old players as was Herenton.

Ask that question of em all. We know Mongo's answer will be, to the effect, "Jefferson is a turd just like all the political appointees who are currently stealing money from the taxpayers and they ALL must be flushed." We need a new toilet!

Ask 'em, Jackson. I know you won't because you and all those in the power structure are afraid of Mongo and his good common sense approach to government, starting with kicking out all the leeches who suck the life out of the city and the public

Yes, B, i am on a weekend furlough from the practice of law and have taken advantage of the "down time" to study and compare the statements and positions of the candidates for Mayor.

I spent 5 hours listening to a recording of the interview that Thaddeus Matthews did with Prince Mongo this past Thursday and realized that, when you hear him on the radio and can't actually see him, Prince Mongo sounds like the "sanest" of all the candidates. Not at all crazy and never afraid to back down or offer a "pc" solution to a problem facing Memphis.

To anyone who hasn't heard that radio interview, i urge you to listen to it in its entirety.

I believe any rational person who listens with an open mind and has the ability to put aside their preconceived notions will come away thinking there's only one person running who truly might be able and willing to do what it's going to take to turn Memphis around, and that person is the alein, Prince Mongo

I think AC is just too attached-at-the-hip to Willie Herenton and all of the Herenton cronies for me to be able to vote for him.

There are two years left on Herenton's term, so the new mayor will have that amount of time in his or her first term, after which a new election will be held.

I think it's time for Mongo to come in, flush the toilet of all the turds now occupying the divisions of Memphis city government and then we can elect a new mayor who dresses nice. In the meantime, HELL, YES! MONGO FOR MAYOR!!!

In light of the fact that, when the citizens of Memphis called on him to run against Mayor Herenton in the last mayoral election, AC Wharton shirked the call to duty and opportunity to have saved our city from the fiasco that the last Herenton administration became; and, in light of the fact that AC Wharton deigns to say who, in a democracy, has the right to speak to the citizens via the debates, I am “reassessing” the support I have given him in the past and will refrain from supporting AC in the future.

Regardless of how he dresses, or how AC feels about him personally, Prince Mongo paid $100 for a petition to run in the election for City of Memphis Mayor and turned in 25 valid signatures, just as did AC. Therefore, Prince Mongo has just as much right as AC or anyone else to be heard in the public debate(s).

Shame on attorney Wharton for his vain attempt to censor the right to free speech
