Skip to comments.Thad Cochran Admits Personal Responsibility For Destruction of McDaniel Campaign Signs
Posted on 06/23/2014 10:34:52 AM PDT by cotton1706
Recall that for weeks, the desperate Thad Cochran campaign and their increasingly shrill surrogates found that no connection between the misguided supporters responsible for the nursing home break in and McDaniel himself to merit trumpeting from the hilltops. The three McDaniel supporters were without question not employees of the campaign, had never been paid by the campaign, and did not even have official titles. In addition, the McDaniel campaign immediately and forcefully condemned their actions. In their desperation, however, Cochran lickspittles like Brad Dayspring rushed out and breathlessly reported such astonishing and damning facts as the fact that the three arrested persons had liked the McDaniel for Senate Facebook page, that they followed McDaniel on twitter (and in some cases were followed in return), that they had volunteered for McDaniel and thus (unsurprisingly) had been photographed with McDaniel. Eventually, Cochran himself groused aloud about McDaniels possible involvement in the break in.
By this standard, Thad Cochran must surely admit that he is personally responsible for these criminal acts committed by one of his paid staffers:
BILOXI, Mississippi A staffer for Sen. Thad Cochrans (R-MS) re-election campaign was fired after he was arrested and accused by police of stealing campaign signs for Cochrans primary opponent, state senator Chris McDaniel.
Lee Ellis Blair, a member of the DeSoto County GOP executive committee and Cochran campaign staffer, was arrested late Sunday and charged with malicious mischief, according to a partially redacted copy of the police report provided to Breitbart News.

I have sometimes had little back and forth with this guy on Twitter, he is Thad to the bone. You can tweet your condolences to @theleeblair
Cockroach should try his southern gentleman impersonation and bow out.....too late now, I guess.
Worser & Worser. Sorry Hayley Barbour. It’s looking like you bet on the wrong Dark Horse.
I swear....really...any Republican who complains about “obstructionism” from other Republicans really should just give it up.
Read some of her facebook page: “Our house in Virginia...” Enough said. This guy just needs to retire.
Why must these old curmudgeons hang on to ‘their precious seats’ like Gollum lusts for his precious ring? Have a nice, taxpayer funded retirement old man. I swear half the Senate is turning into a luxurious retirement village and hospice center where the ultimate goal for thy royal senators is to depart in the stiff, horizontal position.
Sorry Thad you’ll be upright and walking out the door—no shame in that... out with the old, in with the bold.
“arrested and accused by police of stealing campaign signs for Cochrans primary opponent, state senator Chris McDaniel.”
I put on rubber gloves, and rub my campaign signs with Poison Ivy. Caught the neighbor’s kid that way. “Gee Joe! That’s a real bad case of Poison Ivy! How’d you get it?”
In a nasty primary here in Kansas, I learned a few lessons.
The opposition LOVED to put their signs in the yards and in business property of people who did not give such permission.
Then they would wait for our side to go take down the illegal signs.
Then we would be contacted by the police about “theft” of signs.
I had a written note in my pocket from one property owner who owned several rentals. She requested that I take down the illegal signs on her property.
That kept me out of jail.
“Why must these old curmudgeons hang on to their precious seats like Gollum lusts for his precious ring?”
Two reasons: to prevent another conservative from getting into the Senate, and to keep a vote for McConnell as leader.
Third reason: Obituary building
Is this making news anywhere besides Breitbart News? Are local news networks reporting this?
