Ike Brown in Political Flap

The chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, Jamie Franks, says an emergency meeting held by party members this past weekend was illegal.

During the meeting in Jackson, Ike Brown was voted onto the party's executive committee, and Sam Hall was removed as the party's executive director.

Brown, who is black, was found guilty in 2007 of violating white voters' rights in his role as Noxubee County Democratic chairman.

Franks said the emergency meeting was illegal because the party's rules weren't followed. Franks says he was out of town and didn't attend the meeting.
