“I’ve been able to raise a lot of money without the endorsements from the losers in the Democratic party.”

Jones describing his U.S. Senate campaign fundraising efforts to the AJC in April.

"There's nothing illegal about a menage a trois."

Jones quoted in an April 2, 2008, CL column in reference to a 2005 rape allegation. He was not charged in the incident.

"[State lawmakers] don't have any idea about local control. And they're about as clueless as a pigeon with an iPod."

Jones speaking to CL on Nov. 4 about the Legislature’s unwillingness to recognize local government’s jurisdiction.
