Ahhhh . . . Cobb Politics

Sam Olens isn’t the only character up there.

A metro Atlanta county commissioner says reports that she may have hired a voodoo priestess to get even with a political rival – and bounced checks in the process – are “ridiculous.”

Cobb County Police said George Ann Mills told them that she is a high priestess in Blythewood, S.C., and Cobb Commissioner Annette Kesting wrote her $3,000 in bad checks.

A Sept. 26 police report says Mills claimed the commissioner wanted Woody Thompson, who defeated Kesting in an Aug. 5 Democratic primary runoff, to “catch cancer” or to “have a car accident.”

Of course Sam just wants to do voodoo at the gas pump.

    Icarus,

    I think the voodoo spell of “catching cancer” or “having a car accident” turns into “getting charge with deposit account fraud” voodoo.

  2. Doug Deal says:

    Wouldn’t it be the South Carolina equivalent of a “Sheriff’s” office?

    Anyway, in the article it said:

    Mills said Kesting gave her a $2,000 check for the ritual on Aug. 27 and postdated a $1,000 check for Sept. 11, and both checks bounced. The report said Kesting paid cash to make up for the first bounced check.

    But, under Georgia law, there is nothing she can do. Since funds were received for the first check, the first one goes away. In the second case, it was a post-dated check which means it was actually an extension of credit since it was not a check for funds to be available immediately.

    So, I proclaim her guilty of not having broken the law. Icarus, please release the defendant and this court is adjourned.

    Voodoo High Priestess?..Jesus Christ..what is the difference?????? really? It’s been over 2000 years if you’ve read Greek, Egyptian, Roman, Zoroastrianism, Islam there’s no difference…and don’t even get me started on the so-called “eastern religions”

    I’m not sure about the designation. Could mean “high priced” voodoo priestess, or “high in the SC Mountains” voodoo priestess, or “high” like in “Ganga” voodoo priestess, but probably means she’s performed lots of spells on un-suspecting victims. And since they can’t agree on what causes cancer maybe they should tackle the voodoo connection before imposing national healthcare on everybody.

  5. Doug Deal says:

    if she did indeed contract with this voodoo priestest to give this woman cancer, isn’t that conspiracy to commit murder or at least assault?

    If two people sat around planning how to cause another mortal harm, it would seem that they would qualify for prosecution. If nothing else, they can get the woman to testify that voodoo is a bunch of malarky she uses to defraud her customers.

  6. Why? Everyone in Missouri LOVES me!

    I’m only hated in Maryland, Indiana, Alabama, most of Florida, parts of Pennsylvania, Kansas, Louisiana, parts of North Carolina, some areas of Boston, large sections of Fulton County and some of Savannah.

    But not Missouri!

    Don’t give up. You’re young. There’s still time for everywhere else.
