Cochran camp weighs legal action against blogger, source over vote-buying story
http://www.sunherald.com/2014/07/01/5679126/cochran-camp-weighs-legal-action.html ^

The Republican runoff election circus seems destined to land in court one way or another. Chris McDaniel's supporters have been pining for legal action since their candidate lost by more than 6,000 votes to Sen. Thad Cochran in the June 24 GOP runoff. McDaniel is expected to challenge the results, which his campaign says include many ineligible voters. Now, Cochran's campaign is telling a blogger and a former campaign worker from Lauderdale County to lawyer up.

He’s not going to do jacksh**.

Listen to the damn interview yourself, people. This guy is not BS-ing to get some money from an independent journalist. He’s coming forward to expose people who screwed him over.

I’m having a difficult time deciding who I want to see exposed for all the filth they embody; would it be
Rove, Barbour, Mc Connell...hmmm, how about all of ‘em.

The problem appears to be that Cochran hired a whore and then after she serviced him, he refused to pay.

Thad, you must remember to always pay your whores up front and make sure you pet your barn animals after.

As a Prosecutor I ask this sincerely ... is it a crime in TN? Depending on the statute, it may not be. And then you have to show who was involved, who they voted for, etc. I’m not saying don’t file suit. heavens knows we prosecuted some cases we knew we would lose as it was just the right thing to do”. But this is almost impossible to prove. Unless you’ve really got something, go with a write in.

And s=would someone in this silly State PLEASE change the Primary voting rules?

Friends, family and his attorneys have said his arrest was politically motivated and his treatment by Madison authorities – including his bond being set at $250,000 — was overboard.

Reeves, said: “I’ve been an attorney for 32 years, and they don’t set drug dealers’ bonds that high.”

I find it so fascinating that we are a ‘nation of laws’ when the weasels need something to support their lies.

I’m getting whiplash from all the bull that is being poured out on this. They lied and cheated, I pray the truth prevails.

Cochran blowing smoke. Johnson and his attorneys will have a field day with discovery. I wouldnt be surprised Barbour, McConnell, Denise Priebus, Romney, tell Cochran to chill with the lawsuit talk....

Or, like the old joke about the woman who didn’t know she’d been raped until the check bounced. Cochran may run, but he’s not going to be able to hide behind his shady shenanigans for long.

Charles C. Johnson is on Twitter and he was on BlogTalkRadio tonight. He said he is going to go after a lot of corrupt Republicans. The host asked him if he was not afraid of getting off’d. He said he believes in Jesus and if it is his time to go he will. If not, he won’t. He said he has spies all over Mississippi and is not afraid of all the threats. I follow him on Twitter because he is really going to be interesting with his news items.

This can only turn out one way. Cochran will be the sitting senator. McConnell, Alexander, McCain, and others who stand with Cochran will stop at nothing to quash this contest. Now, their futures are at stake. If they need to buy off a judge or whoever, they will.

I knew this would happen.

06/30/2014 11:07:52 PM PDT - We need a sworn affidavit from Fielder pronto

07/01/2014 10:58:24 AM PDT - Don’t give him time, overwhelm his decision cycle.

07/01/2014 5:25:13 PM PDT - Today has been lost, you can bet the Cochran gang made use of this time.

Time which he DID put to use.

The opportunity to set the agenda has been squandered.

It was 50 years ago this summer when the political machine descendants of Barbour, Cochran and Co. (when the machine had a D next to its name) were going after civil rights workers executing three of them and burying them in the swamp.

“He said he is going to go after a lot of corrupt Republicans. “

Hmmm. I’m all for going after these guys but I believe there is corruption on both sides of the isle. I hope this guy doesn’t have a hidden agenda.

I was somewhat suspicious of this Charles C Johnson guy so did some research on my own.... he isn't a newcomer to conservative politics and we may have reason to be guardedly optimistic:

Who is Charles C. Johnson?

1.He has written a book, "Why Coolidge Matters" and has been on the Mark Levin Show discussing it.

2.from Publisher's Weekly:

"Charles C. Johnson is an independent writer. His work has appeared in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, The L.A. Times, City Journal, The New Criterion, Reason, Tablet Magazine, and The Claremont Review of Books.

He has been the recipient of both the Robert L. Bartley Fellowship and Eric Breindel Award at the WSJ, the Robert Novak Award at the Philips Foundation, and the Publius Fellowship at the Claremont Institute.

He lives in the San Gabriel Valley with his fiancée and is presently writing a political biography of Barack Obama."

3. This link is to a site showing a pic of him with Megyn Kelly (he is a little bit weird looking):

http://www.gofundme.com/charlescjohnsonresearch

4. He has written for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The Los Angeles Times, The New Criterion, The American Spectator, The Claremont Review of Books, City Journal, Reason.com, National Review Online, Tablet Magazine, The Weekly Standard, Powerline, and The New York Sun.

5. His work has been featured on Real Clear Politics, the Drudge Report, Hotair.com, The Blaze, Breitbart.com, Rush Limbaugh’s Show, and the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web.

6.He has been on Fox News with Megyn Kelly, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs and numerous radio programs, including Larry Elder, John Batchelor, Rusty Humphries, Dennis Prager, Larry Elder, Mark Levin, and Larry Kudlow.

7. To date, he is the only person to have won both the Robert F. Bartley Fellowship and the Eric Breindel Collegiate Journalism Award, which came with a $10,000 prize and an internship at the Wall Street Journal after he exposed a pro-Hezbollah, pro-Hamas professor at his alma mater.

8.He has also won the Robert F. Novak Special Alumni Fellowship from the Phillips Foundation and the Publius Fellowship at the Claremont Institute.

9.Charles has worked for Alan M. Dershowitz at Harvard Law School, Seth Lipsky at the New York Sun, Carl Schramm at the Kauffman Foundation, and Charles Kesler at the Claremont Review of Books. Fluent in French and proficient in Spanish, Charles lives in Los Angeles.

10. In the excerpt below The Cochran campaign describes him as a blogger "trying to start his own blog":

"(Fielder) started demanding all this money from the campaign, so this blogger showed up last week with Tea Party Express and admits he paid him for the story," said Russell.

"He's so much like Clayton Kelly. He's trying to start his own blog and he's making loud accusations trying to defame us.Frankly, if I were these two gentlemen, I'd be talking to my attorney because we're talking to ours," said Russell.

Johnson didn't answer his phone and hasn't responded to an email request, but he earlier tweeted:

"You establishment hacks do know that I've been threatened with lawsuits, death threats before, right? I planned on this. #mssen"
