MORON OF THE DAY: Leave me alone! I said, LEAVE ME ALONE!

No, this is not a story about Britney Spears. This is a story about a Mississippi alderman acting like a fool.

BACKGROUND:

In a small city in the Mississippi Delta, a board of aldermen were meeting to discuss the agenda and vote on motions. One alderman, Mala Brooks, wasn't happy about an item on the agenda. She launched into a long diatribe as a stalling tactic, despite Mayor Lowe's numerous attempts to move forward after a motion had been adopted. When she was deemed out of order, the Mayor asked for her removal from the meeting. (scroll to around 5:00 minutes to get to the beginning of the drama)



It should be noted that Alderman Brooks' mother was the former mayor of Leland and was defeated by the recently elected Mayor Lowe.]

PART II:

Here is her dramatic temper tantrum in all its glory. WARNING: Racist language is used in this clip by Alderman Brooks.



So in order to avoid having to vote on immediate repayment of over $11,000 in unauthorized and unaccounted for expense checks written to her mother and herself, Alderman Mala Brooks (aka our Moron of the Day) screams for nearly 15 minutes that she hasn't done anything wrong and she's not leaving. The board voted unanimously that repayment be immediate.

Mississippi Delta politics - it doesn't get any better than this, folks.
