Rep. Criswell Wins, City of Jackson’s Mayor Loses

As predicted by this author, Jackson mayor Lumumba’s patent violation of the Mississippi Constitution got him sued and he quickly lost. The City Council, correctly, abandoned him and the mayor did not bother to try to justify his actions. While the result is correct, the fact that this even occurred is an affront to our system of law and order.

Many thanks go to Rep. Dana Criswell and the Mississippi Justice Institute (“MJI”) for not allowing the mayor’s publicity stunt to go unchallenged.
