The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said appears to be campaign finance violations.
At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC Request for Additional Information says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner.
The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to adequately respond by Aug. 1 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, Roll
Calls Kent Cooper wrote:
"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."
According to FEC filings that Mississippi Conservatives did report, the two entitiesScott Howell & Company and Winning Edgeconducted radio and television ad placements and direct mail production, respectively, for the Super PAC.
The Super PAC is run by Henry Barbour, a Republican National Committee (RNC) committeeman and nephew of former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbourwho has offered financial support for the PAC, as well.

Mississippi vote fraud ping!
This is what happens when you get in bed with dimoKKKRATS. Now that it is over they are coming after you. They smell blood in the water and a chance to pick up a Senate seat come November. Thank you GOPe. I bet you still have the crabs after the sleepover.
Cochran laid down with skunks and ended up with fleas and a terrible stink.
I understand that Barbour’s son or something is in line to be appointed Senator when Cochran resigns after the election.
Follow the money.
This will result in a simple letter of violation sent to the PAC. Nothing to get carried away about here, but it sounds like True the Vote has their teeth sunk into some meat.
Nail their sorry hides!
Obviously there is proof of egregious acts of voter fraud, so they need to be able to say the FEC addressed it, shut up and now move on...
Yup they had 24 hours to report it. Now they have been given a month. Long after the election is suppose to be certified. See how nicely that works.
If the FEC goes after the GOPe in Mississippi, they will play the victim card and blame Obama instead of their own corrupt actions.
1. ineffective; incompetent; futile: feckless attempts to repair the plumbing.
2. having no sense of responsibility; indifferent; lazy.
Just use the RICO law to throw the Barbour family (or parts of it) in jail...
Throw them all in jail, the innocent ones will (demon) rat out the guilty ones.
Barbour reminds me of Boss Hog from Dukes of Hazard
It would make a great cartoon, too bad I am not an artist
