Allegations Of Vote Buying In Mississippi (DAILY CALLER SHILLS FOR THAD COCHRAN!!!)
Daily Caller ^ | 7/1/2014 | Matt Lewis

Posted on 07/01/2014 10:34:01 AM PDT by Viennacon

If you read conservative outlets like RedState or Breitbart — or even if you just get Chris McDaniel’s email alerts — you’re aware of allegations of vote buying in Mississippi.

If the allegations are true, it’s reprehensible. But the problem is that they’re coming from a less than reputable source.

The African-American pastor alleging that he was offered money to buy votes for Thad Cochran was also paid by the reporter for the story. This is both ironic and problematic: If you’re the kind of person who is willing to participate in a vote-buying scheme, isn’t it possible you’d also be the kind of person who is willing to make up a wild story in order to get paid by a reporter?

Another interesting wrinkle is that the person making the allegation claims he received the walking around money to distribute to African-American voters but never got paid the money he was promised for his services (note: Always get paid up front!).

Of course, even if this pastor is telling the truth, the hard part will be proving that a). the people ordering the vote buying were actually from the Cochran campaign, and b). that the number of votes bought would account for the difference in the election. (Let’s assume that a consultant took it upon himself to order this scheme. He might certainly find himself in legal hot water, but would that impact Cochran’s victory?)

As such, they will either shock the political world by proving massive voter fraud — or ensure that any political future McDaniel might have hoped to salvage is over.

I’m betting on the latter, but in politics, anything can happen.

Actually...no secret that news outlets pay for info or stories. That those breaking MS Vote Fraud story mentioned such payment adds credibility. News outlets usually don’t admit it

Daily Caller covering for GOPLibs

Back in the seventies, people used to buy black voters by loading up a pickup truck with half-pints of whiskey, and a banner, and pass them out in the black section.

Trayvon’s mother did what? asked for how much?

I am hopeful the story is true, but I think all this article does is point out the red flags in how it came about. When the McDaniels campaign comments on it, I will feel alot better. We’ve been set up before.

Yes it does prove my point. Folks in news and other businesses pay for info.

Yep, if the seat is going to go to a Republican, they would rather it be a RINO.

maybe the pastor has a conscience and felt bad after he stooped so low.. unlike journolists that work at the Daily Culler who have no shame or feel no guilt for their own complicity in covering up the errors of the Left’s way.

Exactly. I said on an earlier post that I could see GOPe putting this out there so they can pull the plug later and call us all a bunch of right-wing nuts. Typical Dem trick and they are after all, Dems. That being said, it certainly warrants further investigation.

If the Dems did put it out it would be because Chris is making them nervous with his investigation of double-voting and fraudulent absentee ballots. If the McDaniel investigation is making GOP nervous enough to try and derail it, that's a good thing. Means Chris is on the right track. So either way this story plays out is good for Chris, unless we jump too fast.

MUCH MORE THAN “ALLEGATIONS”:
With a bit of luck, this may be the death knell for the elitist GOP Beltway banditos. Just hope enough folks are paying attention.

Yeah I find the silence on this one befuddling. Not that I expect the idiot Feds to do much, but I expected more at the State level.

What for? Do you think that the communists empire in America will investigate. And even if they did nothing changes except more State will pad the vote. America if finished and the American people are more to blame than either party.

Yes, the Daily Caller is gradually becoming corrupted. If it has to choose between the interests of the GOPe and those of its conservative base, it will side with the GOPe EVERY time.

So, in the case of Mississippi, the Daily Caller is essentially calling on McDaniel to ignore the corruption and fraud and simply “gracefully” bend over and grab his ankles.

NO CONSERVATIVE should ever again bend over and grab his/her ankles at the direction of the GOPe.

NEVER AGAIN! REMEMBER MISSISSIPPI

These people are a joke. It is becoming more and more obvious that this story has legs, their denial seems to indicate they did pay people
