SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. – Henri Brooks was ousted from the County Commission this week after an investigation showed she didn't live in her own district.

But she's taking the matter to court and has now given a new address as her residence.

There are other residency questions brewing as well.

The Informed Sources team asks, where is this controversy going? Will the DA file charges?

    In her statement she said she would always be there for the children. From her actions and arrest we can assume that would be white children.

  • Howard Stern

    Thaddeus Matthews, who granted isn’t the most reliable source in the world, has brought up residency issues regarding Justin Ford. Matthews seems to have some very credible evidence to suggest Ford is as guilty as Brooks. If that is the case, he, just like Brooks was, needs to be booted from the County Commission and removed from the August ballot. Like Brooks, he should also be required to pay back any salary and benefits he’s received under false pretenses. By the way, loved the commentary from Otis Sanford this morning about Brooks – he spoke the truth!

      Agree with both comments, Mr. Stern. Thaddeus Matthews should pursue civil assault charges against the Fords. Memphis needs an investigation into this mess, by an outside, legitimate governmental department. I saw The Otis Sanford interview, too. He does his job well, seems honest and fair. Too bad he is not serving in one of our public office positions.

      We, the people, need to get our tax money back from these crooks (Brooks/Ford), if an investigation does show this to be the case (which all factors seem to indicate!). Thanks – great post!

    Need to put this dangerous woman in jail and make sure she cannot hold any kind of political office again,this woman if she can manipulate into power position with her racist views could be very dangerous to innocent people just because of their color.

      never thought about that(last 12 words). rest of it, u got it. i just happened to think…does she really have that few friends now or did they just now want to show up at that rally because they didnt want to be seen associating with

    Brooks is a liar and a racist.. What bothers me is the support that this woman receives from the Mayor’s wife, son and other city leaders. I cannot wait until she gets her butt whipped in August. But don’t worry too much about Henri, she will land a fat paying city job given to her by the Mayor. I love the way Mayor Wharton tries to play ” Switzerland” in his comments about his buddy, Henri Brooks. He supports her, and WE all know it. He just does not want to lose his white supporters.
