Skip to comments.Mississippi Burning: 3300! Cochran to Resign? True The Vote Sues, Barbour Investigated, and More!
Posted on 07/02/2014 1:00:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
I lot has happened in the last 24 hours, more than I can keep up with, even after pulling an all-nighter!
****For starters, the McDaniel campaign has now identified 3300 illegal votes with only half of the counties canvased. It seems highly likely they may find enough invalidated votes to overturn the results of the election, especially if what has been said about absentee votes is true.
Of course, McDaniel doesnt actually need to find enough illegal votes to overturn the election, to prevail here. You see,they as backwards as Mississippis voting system seems to be, they actually have very strong laws against vote fraud, laws with teeth!
Theres an interesting concept here at play. By law, all Chris McDaniel has to do is provide enough evidence of fraud to taint the vote. In Mississippi the evidence of significant fraud can force a new election to be held. It would see, that with 3300 illegal votes so far, we may have met that threshold. Time will tell.

This is an interesting development. Resigning might just save Cochran from legal action, maybe. It also gives the Corrupt Republican Establishment a chance to appoint one of their cronies to fill-out the rest of Cochrans unexpired term.
Now unless McDaniel is the one appointed to fill Cochrans unexpired term [almost zero chance that will happen] whoever is appointed will not be able to run in November. The Republican candidate would be McDaniel. However, the Republicans could do a lot of damage to McDaniel. You know democrats would run ads claiming McDaniel is so undesirable that he was appointed to Senate by Governor.
If the source is correct, and Cochran is thinking of resigning, we pretty much know hes guilty of every thing alleged.
Catherine Engelbrecht, the brave Texas warrior from True The Vote who has been attacked viciously by the Obama regime, filed suit in federal court Tuesday against Mississippis Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and the Mississippi Republican Party, asking a judge for an immediate injunction against them, so that the election material from the June 24 Republican primary runoff can be inspected.
Heres a copy of the lawsuit for readers to look over:

Pro-Cochran Super PAC run by Henry Barbour [Haley Barbour's nephew], funded by an unsecured Bank loan, looked at by the Federal Elections Commission.
From Roll Call:
The federal agency regulating and monitoring money in federal elections is seeking answers from a pro-Cochran Super PAC regarding what appears to be campaign finance violations.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has sent a Request For Additional Information (RFAI) to Mississippi Conservatives, a Super PAC supporting the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. The committee has until August 1st to respond, or the failure to do so could result in an audit or enforcement action.
The FEC letter states the committee may have failed to file one or more of the required 24-hour report(s) regarding last minute independent expenditures. Specifically, the committee did not file a 24-hour report for a $15,000 payment on May 30th to Scott Howell & Company as an independent expenditures against Chris McDaniel, R-Miss.
The FEC also sought answers for an independent expenditure paid to Winning Edge that was reported on a 24-hour report, but was not correlated with the committees Schedule E for the 12-Day pre-runoff report covering 5/15 through 6/4.
Remember Pete Perry, the Hinds County GOP chairman, who democrat party officials say approached them for help illegally stealing the election for Thad Cochran, by not swapping voter rolls, as is customary to ensure there is no crossover, or double voting?
The plot thickens:

There is much, much more going on, with breaking news by the minute!
If readers want to stay informed, I recommend following Charles C Johnson on Twitter. Charles has been the man behind all of the news coming out of Mississippi. Its his hard work that has produced all of the evidence against the Cochran campaign, Haley Barbour, and so on. Hes a one man army!
I know money is tight in Obamas America, but if you have some spare change, send it Charles way. Hes been doing all this fantastic work, that is finally being picked up by the national news, on his own dime. When this is all over, and justice prevails, Charles will be one of the Patriots we will owe a huge debt of gratitude to. Show that gratitude now by sending a couple of bucks to Charles at his research funding site here.
Well. Utterly fascinating. Maybe it’s the Prosecutor in me but I want to see evidence and not interpretation of said evidence. I have also found out that what people say are the facts, often aren’t. And, of course, there is a LOT of spin involved in this. And whenever anyone says “some people say” I tune them out instantly.
However . . .
There sure is a lot bubbling here. Dying to see where it all leads. Here’s hoping it ends well for us.
I knew from North Carolina it all stunk to high heaven and now that we’re seeing inside it, it’s about what I expected. Maybe even a little stinkier ..
Lord, expose the truth of these corrupt people in authority!
The GOPe is doing their dangdest to boot this seat to the democrats.
The GOPe spent multi-millions on this steaming pile of an election and showed a willingness to debase the process and themselves well past anything we expected. I would not expect them to give up a thing without a profoundly well-run piece of litigation, not a bunch of yammering and finger-pointing and stupid tweeting.
Isn’t that the damned truth. I am so ready to burn the GOP down. Left my local, will never go back. Talk about diagnosable narcissists. Gaggggggggggg me.
You’re not up to date. We’re up to 4900 invalid votes now! https://twitter.com/ScottSimmonsNwz/status/484410561200152576
The last report I read said they had found 4900 illegal votes - the total is rising!
The Democrats and RINOs both routinely participate in ballot fraud. That's why they never want to look into election irregularities, because they both have things to hide.
The TEA party is VERY dangerous in this situation, because the TEA party has nothing to hide, so they have no qualms about digging in the dirt.
I also predicted that unless the RINO party told Thad to step aside, no telling how many RINOs might be headed to the slammer.
GOP needs to get their A** behind McDaniel and tell Cochran to step down ASAP if they want to have any GOP party at all.
Wait a minute! I thought I predicted this!
You did! I just stole it from you! It’s mine now! BWAA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!
I remember being shocked when republicans in the senate voted not to convict Clinton after his impeachment. And I was mystified when republicans refused to contest Obama’s eligibility fraud. I now understand how all of this has been allowed to happen.
The Cochran Press Conference was a joke. Viennacon posted some pics.
No Cochran, no GOP officials, just Boss Hogg’s corrupt kin folk.
This is not going to end well for Cochran supporters. Not well at all.
you lie down with with Democrats you wake up with scandal ?
I agree. Speculating is nonsense. I want to see proof! This is why I don’t get excited about things like “bomshells” and “obama birth certificate” stuff.
I am a rational person with strong opinions based on facts and experience.
It would do my heart good to see Hailey Barbour go down after his hard work to rob the coffers and steer over a hundred million to Terry McAuliffe to fund his electric car business that still hasn't put a car on the market. -- Scammers all
Album: The Coon Hunt
Barbour is a skunk.
Boss Hogg is AWOL now.
Not a word from him.
All the comments so far are very good. It would be better if everyone would put their money where their mouth is. I just sent Chris McDaniel $50. That is in addition to the $25 that I donated to his campaign prior to the election. Chris is going to need money to fight the GOPe. So lets all belly up to the bar.
We must win the Senate with true conservatives. Do it as an investment on behalf of your kids and grandchildren. It is now or never.
Wait, I thought I predicted this too. LOL!
There have been a slew of news reports and some by notable credible reporters. One such piece had photos of the Tweets from one of Cochran’s congressional staffers that clearly indicated how the ‘walkin around money’ would be found in envelopes. No question that is Grade A evidence on its face.
The other facts that are glaring are the unwillingness of the Hinds County and Perry County Election Commissioner to cooperate with the McDaniel campaign in reviewing the ballot materials. This election commissioner is named Connie Cochran and she just happens to be the sister-in-law of Thad Cochran.
And there’s more but I think you evidence right there that can persuade any skeptic of what is happening on the ground in MS.
Which just validates what we here at FR have seen for a while. Cochran is non compos mentis. They dare not bring him out in public. They are terrified that the Barbour sock puppet will be chucked out before they get a chance to appoint his manipulable replacement.
“Once again, I think the bottom line is that the GOP-e fight hardest and dirtiest against Conservatives, and then suddenly and amazingly go flaccid in their opposition to the Democrat in any General election.”
So have you ever seen Obama’s birth certificate? Every little league player in America has to provide a certified birth certificate to be qualified to play. Yet no one has seen Obama’s birth certificate. Not even the health department employees in Honolulu.
Well said. Very well said indeed.
Yet. Cochran is just a prop. He is senile and they have been hiding him.
It took the Tea Party to expose them for what they are.
Both sides - of the same filthy coin.
I will never get over what they all did to Sarah.
Any chance we can get a youtube of the cochran press conference?
Someone commented he was a former democrat that abandoned ship. Is that true? If it is, it would make a lot of things make sense.
I can’t help with that, but some Freepers here have contact with
McDaniel campaign. They might be able to drum up some video.
There also might be some video from MS TV Stations.
Well, it’s “close” to evidence. Not saying there is nothing out there, but what we really have here is the interpretation of “evidence” by others. That, truly, amounts to no evidence at all.
Don’t misunderstand me. I really, really want there to be some. But when I prosecuted, I needed a bit more than someone telling me “Bob down the street did it. I know it for sure!” Well, what evidence can you show me even though I would suspect Bob too.
Because whatever they may have is going to have to be litigated in Court. And that is a very different animal.
Also, unwillingness to cooperate is evidence of ... unwilling to cooperate. Mere suspicion isn’t even enough to get a search warrant.
As I keep saying ... I WANT this to be true. Even more, I want someone to produce evidence, don’t just tell me what you found which is usually no more than what you think it is and what it may not really be.
Put a GPS tracker on the ballots from the runoff election and I’ll bet it will lead you to Lois Lerner’s hard drive!
The photos of the Tweets as they appeared real time on the electronic device is not an ‘interpretation’.
Did Cochran show up for a victory party? When was his last public appearance?
Scroll down a bit.
This and Sheriff Arpaio’s Posse are going nowhere soon. The big question is which one will get there first.
But he has been AWOL from his own race. He is just a prop.
Yesterday, I questioned whether the person tweeting this in haste meant to say "concede" rather than "resign."
In the context of the primary, conceding makes more sense. Resigning and sending in a lame-duck seat-warmer over the summer who can't run in November makes no sense.
And it has been verified and is verifiable that Saleen O Baird is a congressional staffer of Cochran.
