Last night, emotions spilled over in the Hattiesburg City Hall building where Mississippi Democratic Trust’s Executive Director (and former state representative and attorney for Johnny Dupree) Brandon Jones got into an altercation with a local Hattiesburg blogger. Given the media hype, two TV stations were there to capture the action as Jones and the blogger were escorted by Hattiesburg Police out of City Hall.
Oh, by the way, there was an election in Hattiesburg last night. Challenger Dave Ware leads by 32 votes with about 1,000 absentee ballots to count starting at 9:00 a.m. Turnout was heavy.
