Skip to comments.New Tea Party group's voting integrity lawsuit threatens Mississippi establishment
Posted on 07/02/2014 9:08:24 AM PDT by cotton1706
If things were bad between Tea Party activists and the Mississippi Republican establishment before last Tuesday's Senate primary runoff, it's about to get a lot uglier.
State Senator Chris McDaniel defeated Sen. Thad Cochran in the first round of the Senate GOP primary but then the aging incumbent staged an unexpected surge to win the run-off.
Cochran's surge was fueled by cross-over Democrats voting in the GOP run-off and before the votes were all counted, rumors were rife about walk-around money and other voting irregularities.
Vote-buying and news buying
Earlier this week, Breitbart News posted a story based on claims of a black Mississippi pastor who alleged being paid by the Cochran campaign to round-up Democratic voters who were then paid a nominal sum for their ballots.
The Breitbart post written by Matthew Boyle was based on material that first appeared on GotNews.com. That site's proprietor, Charles Johnson, acknowledged paying the minister for the story.
A minister claiming he was paid by the Cochran campaign to buy votes and who was paid by a website for talking to its writer isn't likely to be taken seriously by anybody but isolated campaign junkies.
True the Vote sues
But a lawsuit filed Tuesday by True the Vote, the Tea Party nonprofit at the center of the IRS targeting scandal, could force the facts about voting in the run-off out into the open.
True the Vote claims in its suit that the Mississippi secretary of state and the state's GOP "failed to properly abide by federal election record maintenance and open records provisions codified in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

The TEA party, however, is not a Party, and doesn't have the power to engineer election fraud. The TEA party has nothing to hide when it comes to election fraud, and can afford to dig as deeply as they please into it.
If the RINOs don't tell Thad to withdraw and hand the nomination to Brat, no telling how many RINOs might wind up in the slammer.
When the ‘establishment’ starts paying off voters and running ads repeating the word Rat lies about Republicans, it’s time for a shakeup.
How in hell do these states allow so called “registered democrats” to vote for opposite party candidates only to “f” up the results?
If I read this article correctly, the writer bemoans the fact that the lawsuit
will open up things both the GOP and the RATs don’t want the public
to see in MS.
Even more reason to let the sunshine in.
Go get em True The Vote.
I’ll tell you what is blowing me away, and maybe I have missed it ... why is there NO discussion about changing the Primary rules? I don’t mean among us. We see it. But why is the MS GOP not moving on that NOW?
“...and hand the nomination to Brat,...”
Brat beat Cantor in VA.
NO idea. I also do’nt know why the Dims permit it. Blows me away.
[If the RINOs don’t tell Thad to withdraw and hand the nomination to Brat, no telling how many RINOs might wind up in the slammer. ]
Brat already won against Cantor, I don’t think he can run for two seats in different states at once...
I think you mean McDaniel....
True the Vote is about holding legal elections...and being attacked by the IRS!
“But why is the MS GOP not moving on that NOW?”
Because they LIKE that they can manipulate the electorate so the result is the most moderate/liberal nominee possible.
They don’t like the people choosing their own representatives. To the contrary, the politicians want to choose the constituencies that keep them in office.
Are you telling me that my meaning wasn’t clear?

Open primaries! That's how!
The easy part to prove will be those who voted in democrat primary, the later voted in the republican runoff.
Haha! No, friend, not your meaning... only your personnel!
But, remembering how the Republican party got its start, it looks we need a third party to get a second party.
If not now, when? If not us, who?
I don’t live in either state, so I may not remember the names, but I do know what’s going on.
They all do it!
Since the GOPe are the ones who instigated this mess, they have no interest in cleaning it up. I'm glad True the Votes is there to show them what the words TRUTH and INTEGRITY mean.
Surely you do. Wasn’t the issue.
That’s why I corrected your candidate name.
No harm, no foul.
If the investigation isn't done this week all records by the communists democrats in State office will destroy them. Federal regulation or not. The communists machine is too powerful.
Bingo. The GOPe doesn’t want it changed.
>> How in hell do these states allow so called registered democrats to vote for opposite party candidates only to f up the results?
> Open primaries! That’s how!
You know, I wouldn’t have a problem with open primaries if they were *really* open, allowing any legal voter to vote in the primary for any of the primaries.
I would think that once an inquiry was started there would be a cease and desist provision.
Then again, a law against destroying records doesn’t carry much weight anymore.
The article fails to mention teh voters who had voted in the Dhmmicrap primary who then voted in the GOP runoff.
The thing is, the Cochran camp knew what they were doing was illegal, but went ahead anyway. Anything for power.
Nailed it, cotton.
NWO and TP are incompatible entities.
Simple, the dims are crooked! It’s a win-win for them.
