Kingfish on continued Hinds redistricting mess

Should the Hinds County Board of Supervisors pay $40,000 to Derrick Johnson for redistricting voters in the county per his contract? Pete Perry, Chairman of the Hinds County Republican Executive Committee, told the Board in its regular meeting this morning Mr. Johnson’s contract was not legal and he would go to court if necessary to block payment.

Mr. Perry said Mr. Johnson is not a licensed attorney in Mississippi.
