Now back to Steve Simpson's buddy John Ruble

O.k., before I was distracted by the Rep. Kevin McGee (R-Brandon) fiasco, I promised an answer concerning John Ruble's whereabouts on the night of the Steve Simpson "Haley Barbour" fundraiser late last month. (For the background, check here.) As you'll recall, Ruble had been arrested for domestic violence around Memorial Day in 2010. Steve Simpson, then the state Public Safety Commissioner, went down to the county jail and sprung Ruble prior to the end of the mandatory cooling off period.

In my last post about this, I mentioned that, even though Ruble was a host of Simpson's "Haley Barbour" fundraiser, you wouldn't have seen Ruble there if you'd gone. Now I'll show you why:
From John Ruble

So, what, dare you ask, was Steve Simpson's friend and backdoor-bailee arrested for? YOU GUESSED IT! Domestic violence, of course. His court date is October 20, 2011 at 9:00 a.m.

Meanwhile, women of Mississippi, Steve Simpson still wants to be your Attorney General.

I guess steve was tied up with the fundraiser so he couldn't get down to the jail to bust ole john out...again. I would love to see a video of Steve at the jail that morning he got him out!

I recall seeing surveillance video of Simpson busting him out of jail on one of the TV stations. I'll see if I can find it.
