Posted on 07/01/2014 9:12:51 PM PDT by TigerClaws
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.

So now the GOPe is bringing out their INTIMIDATION TACTICS. What’s next...bodies found of suicide victims with multiple gunshot wounds in the back of their heads?
“When first we practice to deceive...”
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.
Outrage Continues: Cochran Camp Denies Fraud and Threatens Lawsuit Against Journalist Who Exposes It
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?
I wish he would.
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.”
Ooooh, I can’t wait for discovery!
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.
Time which he DID put to use.
The opportunity to set the agenda has been squandered.
yep, it’s not the service you pay them for; you pay them to go away.
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.
Thanks, I do follow him on twitter as well but haven’t been on there in days. I have some catching up to do!
“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.

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