THAD COCHRAN CAMPAIGN MANAGER Busted in Vote Buying Scheme (GatewayPundit. FR CREDITED!)
GatewayPundit ^ | 6/30/2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 06/30/2014 9:34:34 PM PDT by Viennacon

Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi.

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.”

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash and punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)) Voter fraud schemes are not unusual for Mississippi. In 1999 Mississippi’s attorney general reported massive voter fraud allegations throughout the Magnolia state. In 2011, a Mississippi NAACP leader was sent to prison for voter fraud, according to the Daily Caller.

When word gets out that the old white guy corruption machine may land you in court, that fifteen bucks may seem like an insult. Votes in MS just went up to fifty bucks.

And if the right traps were engineered to find this community-organizin’ vote fraud, the Nov. elections might be a bit cleaner.

I remember a story someone from Jersey City told me, recounting the campaign of some long ago pol.

Speaking to the crowd the man said “Tomorrow, or the next day, someone will offer you $10- to vote against me. I say: Take that money! Take that ten dollars! And then vote for me anyway! Remember - your ballot is secret!”

These lyin’ cheatin’ SOB’s won’t let little things like vote buying stop them. Maybe they can blame it on the naacp, their new latest BFFs. To say I’m disgusted would be a gross understatement.

Saleem Omar Baird is/was a staffer for Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker. You may remember Saleem Baird from an incident in 2011 which involved a strip club and the legislative aide being put on leave.

A legislative aide to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) will keep his job after charges were dropped following his arrest this summer for allegedly running an illegal strip club, Wicker’s spokesman said Friday.
Saleem Baird, who’s worked in Wicker’s Washington office since February 2009, was placed on leave after he and three women were taken into police custody Sept. 3 at Level 3 nightclub in downtown Jackson, Miss., when vice and narcotics officers discovered the females stripping on stage without proper licenses.

A Jackson police report stated: “A male who identified himself as Saleem Baird advised that he was the manager and in charge. He was also placed under arrest for Violation of City Ordinance.”

“He doesn’t have any ownership interest in the establishment. He doesn’t manage the establishment in any kind of way. There are currently no charges pending against Mr. Baird,” Cockerham said. “He is, in my opinon, an upstanding gentleman, and he’s moving forward.”

Baird, 30, earns about $50,000 a year as a legislative correspondent for Wicker, according to LegiStorm.

I only just realized this is Charles Johnson who wrote ‘Why Coolidge Matters’. He has actually been on Mark Levin’s radio show before, and recently, when the book was released to promote it.

This has major legs!

Via Ray 76 from FR:

To sum up so far:

Reverend Stevie Fielder
* associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church
* former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency

* claims 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.

Saleem Baird
* a staffer with the Cochran campaign
* current legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker

Kirk Sims
* U.S. Senator Cochran’s campaign manager

a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign,
* most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran.

Text messages released to Got News and a recorded interview with Reverend Fielder confirmed that Saleem Baird and Kirk Sims were involved in a $15 per vote cash bribery scheme to target members of the black community.

Evidence seems to implicate the Barbour machine and a staffer to Cochran’s Senate campaign

“Well I mean, you know I told you, I brought some information to the table. And he don’t have a big window, cuz I know at 5, I’m supposed to meet ah, them, some of em was claiming from out of town some kind of way. I don’t know a johnny barbour, some barbour guy, you know em?”

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.

Thanks to Ray 76 for compiling the info.

The way I see it, this invalidates the election. McDaniel doesn’t need to even find half of the 7000 illegitimate votes.

I suspect Haley went to bed early tonight, a smile on his fat face and a banana split under his arm, maybe a night mask on. When he rolls out of bed and downstairs like the boulder from Indiana Jones, this could be as far as Fox&Friends if Drudge picks it up promptly

Have you noticed Tokyo Rove has been completely AWOL from FNC lately?

And the true conservatives on FNC (about 10 of them) are getting mighty hostile to the libs brought on for ‘fair and balanced’.

Bob Beckel is about to get shivved by the rest of the panel.

He appeared on FNSunday I believe, and applauded Thad for ‘reaching out to minorities’.

What we need is an ‘ambush operative’ to get on a panel and roundly expose and denounce Karl Rove, loudly and proudly, letting everyone know he bankrolled voter fraud in a Republican primary.

Oh, this all goes back to Rove - Architect was not just a compliment, this man knows every precinct in the nation - and
the 15 Senators who sent Cochroach money, five thousand each and some more.

The problem with all politics being local: James O’Keefe, True the Vote and other patriots have learned how to act ‘local’ to
get to the corruption.
