Tea party Republican Chris McDaniel's campaign lawyer said Monday that he expects to find enough voter fraud to force a third Senate primary contest with aging centrist Thad Cochran
Cochran won a runoff by about 6,700 votes, but McDaniel's attorney says campaign lawyers will almost certainly show at least that many 'ineligible voters' cast ballots
Mississippi law would require a new election after a primary fight and a runoff between the two Republicans
McDaniel's campaign is examining absentee ballot applications in every county to identify Democrats who illegally 'crossed over' to participate in the GOP primary after voting in the Democratic primary
The Mississippi tea party brawl isn't over yet, an attorney for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel told reporters on Monday, and the insurgent conservative's campaign expects to find evidence of enough voter fraud in the June 24 primary runoff to trigger a new election.
That would be the third bare-knuckle contest between McDaniel and six-term senator Thad Cochran, a 76-year-old moderate Republican whose embrace of immigration reform and other liberal-leaning policies made him a prime target for the tea party movement.
McDaniel campaign counsel Mitch Tynersaid Monday that he 'would be surprised if we dont find' enough fraudulent votes to throw out the June 24 results.
The campaign, he said, has already found 'thousands.' Last week it was reported that an initial review of ballots flagged at least 4,900 'irregularities.'(continued)

Let it happen!!
They should stay focused on the 6900 illegal cross over votes. That’s CLEAR.
The allegations of who paid what person or group off for votes is down to he said/they said.
Stick with the voted Dem in primary / voted Rep in runoff. Those are slam dunks.
No idea what the absentee votes will turn up.
DESTROY THE GOPE!!!!!!
“...McDaniel’s campaign is examining absentee ballot applications in every county to identify Democrats who illegally ‘crossed over’ to participate in the GOP primary after voting in the Democrat primary....”
There is MUCH MORE to look for with the absentee vote than just whether the “person” voted in the DemocRAT primary:
Do signatures on absentee ballot (and absentee application) match the registration signatures?
Was the absentee ballot mailed to the address of registration?
Were multiple ballots mailed to the same address and/or PO boxes?
And MANY OTHER methods of absentee vote fraud. True the Vote is very good at smoking out such fraud when the have access to the records. Of course, True the Vote is having to sue to get the needed access.
Oh, do I hope this turns the tide on the GOPEs ... Nothing would be sweeter than to see corrupt Thad get his Cochran ripped off by the roots and handed to him on a platter!
I was just thinking that this could end up being for the best. Many times when conservatives get elected, they get seduced by the GOPe and Washington society in general as soon as they get there. If McDaniel ends up winning, this whole fiasco may help establishment-proof him as a legislator.
Notice where this news comes from.
The old media is corrupt.
