BREAKING: Allegations Point to Cochran Campaign in Mississippi Senate Vote Buying Scandal
RedState ^ | 6/30/2014 | Aaron Gardner

Posted on 06/30/2014 7:21:24 PM PDT by Viennacon

An audio interview has surfaced in which the interviewee claims that he was to be paid by the Cochran camp to grease voters in the Mississippi GOP Senate runoff election. The audio interview, which coincides with a separate audio recording and batch of evidence produced by the newly launched GotNews.com, a project by Charles C. Johnson, alleges that the Cochran campaign conspired with a Mississippi Reverend to buy the votes of African American voters, who happen to be democrats.

Before I get into the weeds of what is in the audio interview and transcript, which are both below, let me set up the stage a bit. What is alleged to have occurred is illegal and very serious business. Under Mississippi law the alleged crimes could lead to Thad Cochran being removed from the Senate. Everything that follows comes from sources either on the ground in Mississippi, or those working closely with them.

Reverend Fielder has claimed to have evidence that would prove illegal activity took place in the Mississippi GOP Senate run off election. Furthermore, the evidence he claims he has would implicate the Barbour machine and a staffer to Cochran’s Senate campaign. The motivations of the Reverend are not those of a saint. As is made clear throughout the interview and in the transcript, this Reverend is looking to get paid to provide information, just as he sought to get paid to deliver votes by illegal means. Reverend Fielder claims that Cochran’s people were supposed to pay him approximately $15,000 for his efforts, but failed to do so after the incumbent Senator had achieved victory in the run off.

With all of that said, if the evidence is produced and validated, I don’t know how much longer Thad Cochran will be a Senator.

Since he’s not dead it’s ok to say - The world is worse off for Cochran having been born.

It is not good that the Totalitarian Democrats and the Totalitarian Republicans are on the same side against We the People and the Constitution. This whole Cochran thing is a bad omen.

I do not know the particulars of this site but I do know that at most sites the ‘Contact Us’ link refers to the administrators of the site and not necessarily the owners of the content.

That is done expressly for the purpose of ‘insulating’ the owners from objectionable emails.

Yeah, too bad the establishment there is the ones that would have to prosecute them. It’s also a felony to offer a reward “dead or alive” for someone like say, oh, I don’t know, George Zimmerman, but do you see any black panthers going to prison for it?

Good job. Discouraging folks from contacting RNC. Only takes a minute and nothing to lose. Some people will always come up with a reason to not act.

From what I’ve heard, Johnson was very close to the McDaniel campaign, so I would be surprised if they don’t have this.

Thanks for the link. Sent my e-mail to the RNC this morning. It read as follows:

I just want you to know that the despicable deeds pulled off by Thad Cochran and Haley Barbour in the Mississippi Senate race, has done more damage to the Republican Party than you can ever imagine. You are losing your Conservative Base; and they’re taking their donations and votes with them. You may as well resign yourself to the fact that the GOP will NOT gain control of the Senate in November. Conservatives will not vote for the likes of Mitch McConnell, who has vowed to “crush” Conservatives, and Thad Cochran, who admitted doing “indecent” things with farm animals, and now, does “indecent” things at the ballot box. But, remember, all you Republican Establishment “fat-cats”, you brought it on yourself.

Propably?

Mitch MConnell raised almost a million dollars for Cochran.
Where do you think the money came from to run those ads
and buy votes.

It wasn’t the tooth fairy.

I’m beginning to think something is going to happen, and it might even be an invalidated election.

So, who will fall on their swords? You know Barbour and Cochran are going to say they didn’t know anything about it and the man offering Fielder money was acting on his own. That won’t save Cochran’s seat but it might save his ass.

“Mitch MConnell raised almost a million dollars for Cochran.

This particular 175 thousand dollars came from the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL SENATORIAL COMMITTEE. And senator roger wicker has stated he’s proud of their actions and involvement. I hope they can take roger’s seat too.

It can go back to the election that called for the run off.

Probably fraud there, too.

The GOP matched the DNC in RomneyCARE.

And in treason helping the Enemy.

And now in Election Fraud.

There is a reason the GOP is the Give Obama Power party.

The GOP is as evil as the DNC.

Question then; Is how deep does it go?...

One State.. many States..(most)ALL STATES?...
For sure this happened in federal elections..
WHY ? NOT.... State and local elections..

It’s happening for a long time too in certain districts..
Whole States in some places.. maybe many places..

Gerrymandering is the virus that feeds voter supression.. i.e. voter fraud..

It IS NOT NEW.... The public has the voting table mannars of a pig at the trough..

To Wit; Obama is punishment to the United States.. they(we) deserve Obama..
.............The republican party is indeed a Trojan Horse.. a hard rain is gonna fall..
