Sen. Thad Cochran has been hard to access in the last stretch of his campaign against state Senator Chris McDaniel. For example, he played an elaborate game of bait and switch with a respected CNN reporter to avoid an interview. How then did Politico miss an opportunity to ask an important question when interviewing the Senator?
Politico's Alex Burns got a rare opportunity to sit down with the six-term incumbent, and one might think he would ask a key unresolved question at the heart of a scandal that upended the race: Why did Cochran wait nearly three weeks before bringing information to the police about a blogger photographing his wife?
Cochran's campaign won't answer the question, and his attorney, Don Clark, didn't directly answer it, either, in a statement to Breitbart News about the matter. The campaign has acknowledged they learned about a video that included the illicit photograph on April 26 and conducted a brief internal investigation. The Madison, Mississippi, police said they were provided information about the matter on May 15. Clark said he approached the police to tip them off about the blogger.
That leaves a gap of 20 days between when Cochran's campaign learned a blogger had entered the residence of the Senator's debilitated wife to photograph her and when his lawyer went to authorities. McDaniel has said that isn't how he, or any person, would normally proceed under the circumstances.

Of course they did not ask that question. All of liberal Washington is doing what they can for Cochran, he is one of them. Now that we know that his erstwhile executive assistant, landlord, surrogate wife, girlfriend enjoys hosting Democrat fund raisers in their shared residence, there can be no doubt.
Not sure what the voters in Mississippi are being fed, but if they know the truth, they will vote for McDaniel
Yup old Thad decided to release this bit of nonsense on the very day polls showed McDaniel up by 6 points.
It is time for this old slime ball to leave DC. I want to know if the so called photographer has any ties to the Cochran camp
