The VI Supreme Court has just barred Chucky from running for office again.

No doubt her strident caterwauling protests will be loudly heard in the next few weeks ... have the earplugs handy if you're in sight of her.

Bryan might have just ignited a war. Chucky won't go down easy.

she was convicted of local crimes, so the governor could pardon her by tomorrow so that she would be eligible.

Thank Goodness. Now if we can get her to pay back her salaries for all the years she was illegally sitting in Legislature plus rescind all the bills she had a hand in creating and supporting, it would be another step in the right direction. What indeed about all those laws and monies?

This is the only time I can applaud Bert Bryan. EVER!

Then it would go to the Third Circuit Court and embarrass us further.

after jan 2012, appeals from the vi supreme court are by writ to the us supreme court. federal cases go directly to the third circuit.

Talk about the lesser of two evils...

Don't forget that Bryan shot his son in the back and looted tens of thousands of dollars during Hugo.

They say there's no recycling in the VIs. Not true. The corrupt, criminal politicians get recycled every election. Chucky is a perfect example.

She should have been in prison these past years. Can you even imagine you or I not paying our taxes?!! And, she's supposedly a public servant. Right.

Next Step:

Time to put the aiding board of elections members out to pasture. Raymond Williams and Rupert Ross were complacent with her eligibility, and did all they could to validate her candidacies over the years. They need to be voted out this term, and any term following.

noOne, i was wondering how killing your son is NOT deemed moral turpitude, but i guess it is a selective thing down here

Does anyone have a link to the decision? (I know I can look it up, but I'm lazy.)

Overheard in a restaurant the other day:

Bartender: "Yeah, have you seen her signs? 'I'M for Chucky!"

Tourist: "Oh, right."

Bartender: "Right. Who's for Chucky? Chucky's for Chucky. Otherwise it would say 'WE'RE for Chucky!'"

Best. Birthday Present. Ever.

Sometimes the VI Supremes do something useful.

Thank you!

From the opinion:

"Addressing the merits, and notwithstanding the Supervisor’s resolution of the question, pursuant to binding United States Supreme Court precedent construing and applying a nearly identical federal statute, 26 U.S.C. § 7203, Hansen’s prior misdemeanor conviction for willful failure to file tax returns under 33 V.I.C. § 1524 is a “crime involving moral turpitude” that renders her ineligible to serve in the 31st Legislature by operation of section 6(b) of the Revised Organic Act of 1954, 48 U.S.C. § 1572(b). Accordingly, the Superior Court’s July 30, 2014 Order is reversed, and the Superior Court is directed on remand to grant the petition, set aside the Supervisor’s decision to place Hansen on the general election ballot as a candidate for membership to the 31st Legislature pursuant to 18 V.I.C. § 412, and remove Hansen from the general election ballot."

I don't often say this about the VI Supremes (cuz I've gotten some sh!tty decisions from them), but this is not only well-written, but CORRECT.

OMFG! And it's a Lee Rohn loss! It's like the heavens opened up and rained gold bullion!
