Saleem Baird, whos worked in Wickers Washington office since February 2009, was placed on leave after he and three women were taken into police custody Sept. 3 at Level 3 nightclub in downtown Jackson, Miss., when vice and narcotics officers discovered the females stripping on stage without proper licenses.

Two U.S. Senators involved in this?
Saleem involved in this scandal:
Pastor Johnson mentions that Saleem’s aunt is head of the Democrat party in Mississippi.
Can anyone verify that? What job does she have?
Actually Ricky Cole is head of the MSDEMs.
What’s the aunt’s name?
so we need a government license nowadays to take our clothes off?

To sum up so far:
Reverend Stevie Fielder
* associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church
* former official at Meridians redevelopment agency
* claims he delivered hundreds or even thousands, of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist.
* a staffer with the Cochran campaign
* current legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker
* U.S. Senator Cochran’s campaign manager
a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign,
* most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran.
Text messages released to Got News and a recorded interview with Reverend Fielder confirmed that Saleem Baird and Kirk Sims were involved in a $15 per vote cash bribery scheme to target members of the black community.
Evidence seems to implicate the Barbour machine and a staffer to Cochrans Senate campaign
Well I mean, you know I told you, I brought some information to the table. And he dont have a big window, cuz I know at 5, Im supposed to meet ah, them, some of em was claiming from out of town some kind of way. I dont know a johnny barbour, some barbour guy, you know em?
In addition to Baird, Fielder says he spoke with Kirk Sims, the Cochran campaign manager, and a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign, most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran. All refused to pay him the agreed upon amount of $16,000.’

This is getting interesting.
They were strippers, how could they have a license on ‘em?
there is an alternative but if I post it our kindly proprietor might have a fit
suffice it to say, no doubt the ladies are lawful and carry their official government licenses...somehow, somewhere...
(over the rainbow, perhaps?...oops, no, that’s a different show...)
Maybe she is head of a particular county.
He says the name at 17:05
Mary McClark or something?
Maybe they had a license but didn’t have it one them.
I doubt it’s Ricky Cole - although in these weird times...
