Holy Crap: Corruption in the Mississippi Senate race looks much worse than we thought
The Right Scoop ^ | 6-30-2014 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 06/30/2014 8:17:06 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

According to the work of Charles C. Johnson and Joel S. Gilbert, what we thought was just a racist campaign to get people out to vote in the Cochran vs McDaniel Mississippi Senate race was the tip of the iceberg. It now appears to be a vote buying scandal right out of the office of Thad Cochran himself:

Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist. “They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.”

And bear in mind, if this pans out, no deadline matters. Apparently according to Mississippi law, if vote buying is proven, its recipient is no longer eligible for office. Thad would lose his seat by default and a special election would be held.

But ideally, we want this seen by a judge now, the result invalidated, Cochran disqualified, and McDaniel declared the winner.

A friend tried to get the Miami Pubbies to do something about the vote fraud in the 1950’s.

I will video him in front of one “church” which was in the deep part of the vote corruption tomorrow and try to post it.

Yes, the commies were involved in it back then.

Cochran and Barbour will hang their man out to dry. Sort of a political lynching, if you will. But they won’t suffer one bit.

If the blacks are smart, and that’s a big IF, here’s their chance to take down the Mississippi republican machine.

The blacks should be insulted that those rich white plantation owners determined their vote is only worth fifteen dollars. “Vote for Cochran and we gonna’ give you fifteen brand new one dollar bills.”

“For real?”

I imagine that’s what happens on those reality cop shows. “Confess to this murder and you’ll be on television and get paid $600.”

“For real? Can I call my cousin Tyrone. He’ll confess to anything for $600!”

I'm sure that even now Rev. Fielder is being offered money to back off his original story. Soon he'll say: "Nobody told me to pay anyone to vote for Cochran. Demon rum made me say those other things."

And then the whole thing will be forgotten. Then Cochran and Rove will get a good laugh out of it.

It looks like this is the real deal. It will take more than the Rev getting steamrolled to beat these texts from the Cochran email domain:

"I'll have money separated in envelopes at the office waiting for you"? More popcorn!

We’re just going to have to get past this little mess and vote GOPE to gain the senate.

Sure things get a liitle crazy but nothing is more important than taking the senate. Tacky tactics are kinda cool if it broadens our base and we just really must get Harry Reid replaced with Mitch McConell, who really can wrap the rules of the senate around the neck of any Democrat.

He’s probably better than Reid. And take McCain. Now there’s some real power and influence. Do you all even realize how well he knows Hillary?

Let’s just recover our composure and forget about Mississippi. For the greater good we have to sometimes do silly things and it is after all, the “silly season”.

So, anyway I sure hope more Freepers Voting for Fun and the Establishment will hop on over to this thread and help save Cochran and the GOP before all the purists get here.

Honk if you’re for the GOP!

(excerpt)

For his efforts, Fielder says the Cochran campaign and Baird promised him $16,000 for paying black voters $15 a vote, but Baird wound up stiffing him. Baird even asked him to delete all texts between the two of them. In addition to Baird, Fielder says he spoke with Kirk Sims, the Cochran campaign manager, and a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign, most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran. All refused to pay him the agreed upon amount of $16,000.

Baird realized he had been lied to when he “took a good look at the campaign ads” and realized “McDaniel was not a racist...me and other people were misguided and misled.”
Fielder confronted Saleem the weekend before the election and asked about whether or not McDaniel was actually a racist and Baird confirmed it. Baird ‘personally confirmed that McDaniel was a racist.” Baird ‘manipulated me to manipulate many other people,” says Fielder. Baird did not disclose that he worked as a paid legislative staffer for Senator Roger Wicker. Fielder also says he spoke with campaign manager Kirk Sims about getting paid and about the ethnical complaints he had.

Fielder is a Democrat but said he has voted for Republicans in the past. And though Fielder is being paid for his story by Got News, he says he’d come forward anyways. ‘I thought what I did was wrong.’ Fielder said he was motived mostly by concerns that McDaniels was a racist, not money.
As to what should happen next, ‘definitely the election should not be allowed to stand,” says Fielder, who says he’ll support McDaniel in event of a special election. ‘He’s been done wrong. He’s not what they said that he is.’

“If there is a special election, who would you vote for now?” Stevie Fielder, the pastor who got stiffed by the Cochran campaign..”Oh I would have to vote for McDaniel. I feel like I got stiffed!”

Well, well! I hope this translates into real action, going all the way back to McConnell, if there is such a link. This, if true, cannot just be brushed under the proverbial rug. This would be outright serious campaign fraud, with the intent to throw an election.

Dear Lord, please may there be justice done.

Listening to it:

1. He sounds a bit tipsy.
2. Sounds like he would have shut up had they paid him the $$$ he was promised.

He claims to have text messages. Would be very easy for a legitimate investigation to take place. This man is confessing to FELONY federal violations.

Does Holder’s DOJ care?

Deeply. This guy just went POCAHONTAS off-the-reservation.

True The Vote likely has identified his counterparts all over the country. But in the meantime, Mississippi’s burning (the political class, that is).
