This Is Where Chris McDaniel's Camp Will Look For Voter Fraud
The Wire ^ | June 25, 2014 | By ARIT JOHN

Posted on 06/25/2014 12:13:38 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

After last night's defiant not-a-concession speech, the Tea Party's Chris McDaniel doesn't seem willing to let his Mississippi Senate seat dreams go. If he does decide to go the legal route, he'll likely start with Hinds County, the majority black county where Cochran gained thousands of votes.

In 24 mostly black counties voter turnout increased by 39.4 percent, but none of those counties gave Sen. Thad Cochran as many votes as Hinds, which is 69.8 percent black. There, voter turnout increased by 49.57 percent according to the Clarion Ledger's Sam Hall.

But in the chart above you can see that Hinds is an outlier, the same way DeSoto County (73.4 percent white) is for McDaniel. Given Sen. Cochran's outreach to the black and heavily Democratic community, and McDaniel's complaint about "a Republican primary that's decided by liberal Democrats," he'll likely start there.

Voter fraud right through the roof. This country’s headed for civil war.

It’s generally agreed that Thad Cochran squeaked out a win in Mississippi last night in part by getting Democrats, especially African Americans, to turn out. Here’s a flier that was distributed in heavily black precincts suggesting how he accomplished this:

I hope he pursues this to the ends of the earth.

It's about time black-precinct vote fraud gets exposed.

For the longest time the Dems have been saying how racist the republicans are and now they believe one that says the other is a racist. Where do they get that many nose rings to lead these people around with. Fools.

It seems to me that even when voter fraud has been found and proven, even with convictions, the fraudulent candidate stays in office. Is this correct? Has a politician ever been booted once all the evidence was in, or a re-vote?

Who exactly will McDaniel take his fraud complaints to? And what are the chances that the people he’ll be dealing with are in those offices thanks to the same GOPe leadership that bought the votes to begin with?

You posted some interesting democrat race-card window dressing stuff.. Reminds me of the Benghazi video hoax - lots of emotion... stong appeal to people who run on high drama. BUT it doesn't negate the strong possibility of voter fraud.

"Sen. Cochran's outreach to the black and heavily Democratic community"

"Outreach?"

"Outreach?"

It wasn't "outreach;" it was a sellout

Oh, didn’t even see that one at first because it was so high off the charts.

It would be GREAT if an election was thrown out due to ‘rat precinct voter fraud, and the perps jailed.

It wasn’t outreach, it was race baiting, and calling the GOP base “racists”.

Yes, there is no remedy for voter fraud. Even if massive voter fraud is proven , I can't think of a case where the cheating candidate paid a price.

The only remedy is that each chamber is the final judge of its membership. The Senate could refuse to seat Cochran if he is so tainted that he hurts the entire institution.

That's not likely to happen.

I hope McDaniels follows through with a thorough legal challenge with the very best conservative lawyers and investigators that can work on it.

Any semblance of cooperation is OVER. McDaniels will gain a lot of respect when he shows he doesn't play the game with the ptb. We want someone who will FIGHT for what's right!

Does the GOP expect conservatives to forget Thad’s race baiting in November? Did they decide it was better to lose the seat altogether than for McDaniel’s to win?

On what basis? That the man he defeated is butt hurt and mad that he didn’t think of reaching out to anyone eligible to vote in the runoff. Cochran courting Democrats by emphasizing his record is smart politics. Voter turnout for the runoff was up 57,000 from the primary. When was the last time you heard of any election in which more voters turned out for a runoff than for the primary. Cochran’s camp sought out every vote that was available. Mississippi is nearly 40 percent African-American. They can put you in office or they can keep you out. Frankly, I’ve never understood why anyone in Mississippi would vote against Cochran. If the Republicans retake the senate, he will be the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Voters in the other 49 states would give their left nut to have one of their senators in the same position.

Voter fraud right through the roof. This country’s headed for civil war.

Specifically for that reason, I have long advocated the death penalty, subsequent to a very speedy trial, very publicly performed and widely broadcast, for voter fraud and voter registration fraud.

If these treasonous people are not permanently stopped, there will be a war, and many more, along with many innocents, will perish.

Yeah, but half the Republican senate was down there campaigning for him. You think they're not going to seat him?

I am happy to say I left the Ruling Class Party (R's, D's) years ago. Occasionally there is someone worth voting for (Cruz) but only occasionally. Always there is someone worth voting against. Being positive about our political system is becoming some what more difficult as more and more power is consolidated by our ruling class.

To those who continue to vote the "lessor evil" GOPe, may the chains of your enslavement rest easy on your shoulders.

It’s hard to throw the votes out if you can’t prove who they voted for.

You could charge a bunch of people with illegal voting, but how would it change the election? There are no names on the ballots.

Half the voters, maybe -- the government livestock portion of the electorate. But of the taxpaying voters, a whole lot less than half -- probably below 25%. Those would be the working, non-government-dependent sort.

Is Hinds County Election Commissioner Connie Cochran related to Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran?

If so, that’s the precise scenario of Clark County, Nevada, which resulted in the re-election of Senator Harry Reid.

According to online accounts, Connie Cochran is married to the brother of Senator Thad Cochran!!

Connie Connie was also the last person to leave the Hinds County courthouse, on the same night Janis Lane was found locked in there!

I voted against Cochran because he isn’t conservative. I voted against him because of his big spending. We don’t need any more federal money in Mississippi. Government money is the sugar tit that keeps poor blacks subjugated. I voted against him because he’s an immoral man openly dishonoring his sick wife. I voted against Cochran because he has done NOTHING to take the fight to the Obama Administration or liberals generally.

For people who hold to conservative principles, the list of reasons to oppose Thad is very long.
