Hugh King campaign uses slam website

April 10, 2012

Hugh King, former Pensacola City Councilman, former pastor of Greater Union Baptist Church, former CMPA trustee, former Democratic candidate and currently prefiled NPA candidate for Escambia County Commission, District 3, wants to continue the attack on Democratic candidate Lumon May. A new slam website has been created, “cleverly” named “”

The site was created on Saturday, April 7 (after King was arrested, nine days after he allegedly struck May) through a proxy service.

On the site, the claim is made that Hugh King is so powerful and such a formidable opponent that Lumon May has to get him out of the race. Lol! Hugh King hasn’t even qualified to run yet. If he ever gathered enough signatures or raised enough money for the filing fee, then King would not face May until the general election—and that’s only if May wins the Democratic primary.

Hugh King came to the Trayvon Martin event smelling of alcohol. He lost his temper because he was getting any attention. If he had any witnesses to prove his tale, then surely King would have posted their statements to his slam website.

    Hugh King has justified his assault of his opponent Mr. May with the observation that “he hit me first.” Excuse me, Reverend King. Whatever happened to “turn the other cheek”?

    What’s the over/under on how long it takes Hugh King to end up in jail permanently? I hope he runs for county commission. We haven’t had any real fun since commissioners were passing around lunch bags full of cash! (allegedly)

    My comment is “Wow” – can you imagine if an issue does not go his way as County Commissioner?

    Nice! Reminds me of No Way Ray & Truths about JJ Talbot.

    Rick, please post the mug shot and police report of Hugh King from previous.
