McDaniel Takes Step to Challenge Miss. Election
ABC News ^ | July 3, 2014 | By EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS, AP

Posted on 07/03/2014 11:53:14 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The Republican who lost a primary runoff election to Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran is taking the first step to challenge the outcome.

Chris McDaniel's campaign said it believes it has found about 4,900 of examples of improper voting in the June 24 runoff. Most of them were people marked as voting in the June 3 Democratic primary and the June 24, the campaign said.

McDaniel spokesman Noel Fritsch said the campaign served papers Thursday to Cochran's son, Clayton, giving notice of the intent to challenge based on allegations of improper crossover voting.

The LSM is probably walking on eggshells to ignore the real scandal(s) here.

They already think white people are racist. Who gives a toss what they think.

You may be right that the TEA Party will be called racist, but I thought one comment after the article at the link is particularly interesting:

“The TEA party is VERY dangerous in this situation, because the TEA party has no power to rig elections and therefor has nothing to hide, so they have no qualms about digging in the dirt.”

He doesn’t have to bribe them.
He appointed a bunch of them or helped them get elected. They are part of “Good Ol’ Boy Network.”
And he’s motivated. This is his kid’s Senate seat we’re talking about here!

Although I do not think I can post a link, WJTV in Jackson just posted a
story from the MS Secretary of State regarding True The Vote. In the response
to the lawsuit, the MS SOS says they maintained no poll books from
the June 3 primary or the run off election.

This is illegal and pure fraud. It also is a lie, based on pics of poll books
posted here. Time for a revolution in MS.

The Mediacrats will support the GOPe all the way to making sure Cochran could do no wrong. Then in November they will use this as a club to hit cochran over the head.

That's bunk.

The election law didn't just materialize out of nowhere on its own. It was crafted by the legislature, adjudicate by the judiciary, and executed by the Executive. All the arms of Mississippi government are involved in the faithful execution of the laws that they put in place.

Sure, the parties themselves have the responsibility of reporting their results, but it's the state that has the criminal oversight responsibility to ensure that the election is conduct in a fair and legal manner.

This statement by the Secretary of State sounds like they are washing their hands of it and walking away from their oversight responsibility, because they know that it means the end of Thad Cochran and Haley Barbour.

Every year my wife and I attend an SEC football game in either Starkville or Oxford (we live in TN) to watch our Razorbacks (we both are from AR) on the road.

You’d think the SOS would have some say so over party primaries, but I’m not a lawyer
so I have no idea what their laws/constitution requires.

I think at a minimum, if there is an election code then the SOS has an obligation to enforce it, and the Attorney General has an obligation to prosecute those who flaunt it.

Lets hope Boss Hogg Barbour and Cockroach get taught a lesson. I am sure ever those who voted for Thad don’t approve of the way he paid for black dem votes to win a GOP primary with Dem voters.

I don't think they stated it well (they said more than they needed to), but the meat of the remark is that certification of primary results is a function of a political party, and not a function of the Seretary of State. That's true, it's what the election code says.

So Boss Hogg can be like a Pig getting mud all over the election with is Piggish dirty politics.

Boss Hogg Barbour don’t care what the Real gop voters want.

McDaniel mush have won by 7,000 or more votes, of the only people who should have voted Republicans.

Send Boss Hogg to jail. Chase him out of MS. politics.
If it looks like a Pig and acts like a Pig and smells like a Pig its Boss Hogg Barbour a pot bellied porker.

I used to think GW Bush should have had Haley’s speech and interviewing skills. But I think that Haley stopped being honest and just became corrupted by politics, he sold out.

They the GOPe know how to fight dirty, but only do so against their own conservative, and religious base.

We need to go third party and get everyone to vote.
We need articulate people of substance who can get religious
and independents and let the left of the GOP and the left of the Dems become the unified loony fringe.
