Arrow Mississippi's Rick James for city council, *#$%^!; asks Comedy Central for help

Poor Rick James. No, not the ‘70s “Super Freak” singer, but the Hattiesburg, Miss., city council candidate. He says Comedy Central’s “Chappelle’s Show,” on which host Dave Chappelle commonly dresses as the singer James and yells the phrase “I’m Rick James, bitch!” is ruining his campaign, or at least his campaign signs. Vandals have been scrawling “bitch!” after his name on “Vote for Rick James” signs across the city. James had never seen the show and couldn’t understand why his signs were being stolen and defaced until friends told him about the sketch. He says $600 worth of signs have been stolen, and some have turned up as far as 100 mile away. Now, with the primary election on May 3, James is down to just 10 signs. James wrote Comedy Central asking for help in paying for more signs, but the network merely released a statement saying it felt bad they were being stolen.
