Posted on 06/26/2014 9:57:53 PM PDT by kingattax
LAUREL, MS. -- June 26, 2014: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters rights and election integrity organization, today released a letter submitted to Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef calling for the release of absentee balloting information for independent review prior to election certification.
"In order to avoid potential state and federal legal challenges we request that you preserve all absentee ballot applications, absentee ballots and accompanying mailing envelopes until the challenges to them can be resolved, the letter stated. Furthermore, we request that you not certify this election until this matter can be satisfactorily resolved.
"This issue strikes at the heart of election integrity," True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said. "Confidence in our voting process risks damage beyond repair when politicians of either party are willing to flout election laws in the name of self-preservation. Voters deserve to know that election processes and protocols were followed especially in a close outcome."
The letter, submitted by Bernie, Maynard & Parsons attorney L. Eades Hogue, asks that Chairman Nosef reply by Friday, June 27. County party officials across the state were copied on the letter.

Uh yea right, we’re going to take the Senate *cough*.
Either Cochran and his bunch are the dumbes people around or they did not care if people voted who should not have been anywhere near the voting places.
As most will remember, True the Vote is one of Lois Lerner’s victims.
Maybe they should have mentioned that in their statement.
Won’t happen, this election came out exactly how the Republican party wanted it to come out.
And the more they push this, the more Rev. Al, Jesse Jackass et al will be given free airtime to spew allegations of racism, voter intimidation, etc.
“As most will remember, True the Vote is one of Lois Lerners victims.”
Glad they’re on our side.
uh oh. i feel a hard drive crash coming on.
Barbour is part of the ruling elite in Mississippi. If the fraud is exposed it will knock down a lot of powerful people. I doubt that will happen.
Rience Priebus has been utterly silent, as has Karl Rove, on this. And the Chamber of Commerce.
They know Team Barbour went way, way, way too far.
Now only if James O’Keefe was wandering around Mississippi, collecting anectodes.
Great post! Now we have some muscle arriving.
The GOPe really screwed the pooch on this one! Resorting to RAT tactics has disgusted voters nationwide. Thud Cockroach is a has-been loser who should have been cut loose a long time ago. I personally believe this killed any chances of the GOP taking the Senate.
Cruz-Englebrect would make a team.
(Except both from Texas won’t fly.) She’s a great American.
Fantastic link! You know this could get VERY expensive. Wonder if Thad can find his wallet full of what’s left of Mitch McConnell funds, to stall, thieve, hide and destroy ballots and hardrives before this blows up in his handlers face?
If McDaniels will file a formal challenge, the money will pour in.
I just wish a Freeper who was in the no would come in on this. I know they’re probably busy as hell getting and sorting these pollbooks, but I know we have Freepers inside the McDaniel campaign. We need to know whats going on.
That explains why the twitter link calls the Republican state chairman Barbors b!+(#.
I just pray to God the judiciary is not in Barbour’s thrall. We need a solid conservative judge who will take one look at this and say “FRAUD”
Need to check Breitbart.com maybe. They were embedded at McDaniels headquarters on election night and surely kept their teeth engaged in this scandal. Hope so. What about McDaniels campaign website, also?
Don’t you know it’s hand to hand combat in Mississippi tonight.
Its on Breitbart
FReepers are getting the story out
Amen, to that. I have been driven to pray every night against all this avalanch of chaos everywhere.
Great comments following that story!
McDaniels can’t be found voting for Thad, if we the people, “Remember Mississippi”, and revolt, and MS sits on their hands against election theft and boycotts Thad on the ballot.
Also, reportedly there are 10 counties that are suspect. Should each county invalidate 1000 corrupt votes, as one county already reports, McDaniels can win by 4000 votes.
That’s not a bad margin to cover counties that have fewer than 1000 corrupt ballots.
Apart from the couple of very white counties with a couple hundred folks, I bet fraud can be found in almost all of them, even the heavy McDaniel ones like DeSoto. They need to search everywhere, because 6000 is a big number still, and they’re on the clock
I honestly think if they put 6000 fraudulent ballots in front of even a relatively good judge, the least they will get is a redo of the election (a la hattiesburg. Best case scenario the judge gives him victory outright
Then why doesn’t he file a formal challenge, I wonder? He will get funding for it when that occurs.
He cannot file the challenge until it is ‘certified’ or something, which is what he is pressuring for. Barbour and co are trying to leave too small a window between certification and the deadline so McDaniel cannot mount a challange. At least thats as I understand it, but Black Agnes and others know more than I do. I’m notin Mississippi.
Charles is a no holds barred investigative reporter.
He’s like a bull dog on a bulls nose.
Go get them Charles!
That makes sense. And, I’m in the dark also, and not in MS. thx.
no doubt he'll be rewarded for his efforts.
So glad to hear that. Lots of questions and wondering on this thread. That Monday deadline looming? Why McDaniels has not filed a formal challenge? The money needed to launch a challenge, and Thad money to block it? It’s just crazy out here. thx.
It seems they are trying to run out the clock, some kind of underhanded tactic for sure.
Some of it was explained either on this or one of the other two threads.
I recall hearing some time ago that the person really behind this chicanery is good ol’ Mitch Daniels because he knows Cochran will support him for Majority Leader (if the Republicans take over the Senate in November) and McDaniels may not.
In addition, rumor has it that Cochran promised to “retire for health reasons” (we all know he’s either senile or suffering from Alzheimer’s already) after 2 years, so that the GOP-e can appoint his successor.
Sounded reasonable to me then and even more so now.
Very disturbing that election fraud is being committed by the GOP against its conservative base. Can’t beat Dems if you are attacking your own
I think it’s time for a third party with a clear and distinct message. Don’t say it can’t be done because you’ll then be part of the problem.
If you can’t see that the Pubies and Dems are the same party, you need to move on. I refuse to vote for them. The Republicans will lose.
Well, lets have the hanging chad battle, if his hanging chads get counted, then you must count mine too!/S
Absentee ballots are going to come out as 40% double voting. That should push the whole election over.
Poor ole Cochran is just wandering around clueless. His handlers are propping him up like Bernie. Cochran is in lala land thinking about all those farm animals he used to abuse.
Talk about a Pyrrhic victory. I hope that the results are contested for fraud across all county lines.
I am not a lawyer, but I have heard there is something called a Temporary Restraining Order. Perhaps one can be obtained to "stop the clock."
There is a story about Republicans caught cheating which is what gave the Dems carte blanche to cheat.
Anyone remember the details on this?
“Very disturbing that election fraud is being committed by the GOP”
It answers the question why nothing is ever done about even the most obvious / blatant voter fraud. Too many on both sides of the aisle depend on it due to their addiction to power.
I’m not sure they were caught cheating. A group of McDaniels supporters found themselves locked into the Hinds County courthouse at night, supposedly after entering to observe the voting procedures. It might have been perfectly innocent, but it didn’t sound that way, and of course it wasn’t portrayed that way.
I am not talking about the current situation.
I am talking about some kind of bargain GOP made with Dems because GOP was caught cheating.
I can’t remember the detail surrounding the bargain.
Cruz-Englebrect would make a team.
(Except both from Texas wont fly.) Shes a great American.
Obviously Cruz is #1.
Wonder if Englebrect ever ran for anything? She would make a great president. Someone who truly loves this country, the rule of law, true justice and she’s really smart.
“In 1982, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) entered into a consent decree (the Decree or Consent Decree), which is national in scope, limiting the RNCs ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the courts approval in advance. The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNCs Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Courts judgment.”
