Republican AG candidate Al Hopkins sent an e-mail to Sid Salter about the scandals that are plaguing Jim Hood’s good friends.
Here is what he said:
“I read with interest your blognote Jan. 15 suggesting the need for the State to change the counsel law. Before the Mississippi legislature spends its valuable time on new legislation, let me re-suggest something I said to you and your editorial board recently.
It is, of course, a novel idea, and untested in Mississippi for some years, but one might correct the situation by having an ATTORNEY GENERAL that is honest to his oath of office and follows the law that is in place. Why change a law before it has been used. It looks like everything I told you about the parties involved will come true. Truth tho driven to the earth, shall rise again.”
What makes this interesting is that the man who lost the race for Attorney General has now said more about this that the man who is our attorney general and suppose to be enforcing laws. Even though he lost, Hopkins knew what he was talking about when he was criticizing Hood and all these events just prove that to be true. When you look back on his campaign ads, it’s hard to not say he was right.
Here are two more classics from Hopkins campaign:
