McDanielís Team Says Itís Close to Forcing a New Election Against Cochran
BUZZPO ^ | 07-05-2014 | Steven Ahle

Posted on 07/05/2014 10:07:55 AM PDT by Kevin in California

Team McDaniel claims they are rapidly approaching the magic number of 7,000 ineligible votes required to force a second runoff against Thad Cochran. After examining votes in 51 of the state’s 82 counties, they have found 4,900 such votes. With 31 counties and 19,000 absentee ballots to check, McDaniel may very well achieve the goal. Absentee ballots are where most voter fraud takes place.

And when the McDaniel campaign exposes these people for the fraud they committed, will they be throw behind bars?

According to a credible source, apparently if another election is called, Cochran will concede.

There is a list out of the financiers of

Rove and BAIN (Romney) are at the top
with Elliot Management, Goldman Sachs

Why would there be a second election? Shouldn’t McDaniel be declared the winner?

There’s no way to “prove” that all the invalid ballots were cast for Cochran. But once his magin of victory is outnumbered by invalid/illegal ballots, then the result comes into question.

The RINOs know that if he doesn't conced, some of them are going to be headed for the slammer.

Yes, we can assume such, but in a legal proceeding, we have no proof HOW they voted do we?

So the remedy would be a new election.

Two things:

Cochran likely lacks the class to concede.

His payoff (HIGH paying no-show jobs for him and his honey in DC lobbyist firms after he wins and later “retires” from Congress) for not retiring this cycle will only come to fruition if he actually wins reelection.

So he’ll stick to the bitter end.

I heard about it too. The ironic thing is, is that Cochran wanted to retire but was coaxed into running again for the benefit of the GOPe. They needed someone they can control.

Cochran's a loser no matter what happens. Conservatives in MS aren't going to vote for him in the general.

I keep seeing this quoted. But I think that "credible source" is the same guy who did the interview with the Black Minister. The only source that counts is one in the Cochran camp.

Nevertheless, I hope it's true.

That, of course, is Bull Sperm..
Voter Fraud has become an Art..

This concept could be propaganda ot agitprop..
There are far more vectors for voter fraud than absentee ballots..

Voter fraud “IS” also, voter suppression..

The Question of the Day, Week, Month and Year.

I think the problem is that the Mississippi voting system does not allow you to tie a ballot to a voter. If that was possible then a recount which throws out bad ballots would elect McDaniel - assuming he passes the 7000 ballot goal and the great majority of those bad ballots are votes for Cochran.

But I don't know this for sure. I just haven't seen anything really definitive on the subject.

Anyone who really knows how it works in Mississippi should speak up.

Where Voter ID is required, Republican poll watchers need to be trained to recognize fraudulent IDs. Just as young adults (under age 21) frequently have fake IDs, so (in this day of personal computers and high quality color printers) the DemocRAT operatives can mass produce “identification” for their voter impersonators.

And you can take this to the bank!

With all due respect (since we've never met personally) ...

but every American familiar with U.S. elections KNOWS that voter fraud is problematic ...

"problematic" is a best-case scenario ...

"rigged like Las Vegas" or "rigged like the Stock Market" ...

is a far better description.



The cancer goes all the way back to LBJ in 1954, JFK in 1960 ...

and the "bastard" Obama in 2008/2012.



Show me the evidence .... clearly indicates that you're either a moron, Oprah's "boy-servant" ... or worse.

laws strictly enforced.

No, we have to repeal most of the stupid voting laws of the last three decades. "Motor Voter" registration; same day registration; extended voting days; early voting; absentee ballots for anybody who wants one. All voting should be done on the same day over carefully prescribed hours that cannot be extended, in person, with purple-stained fingers, anisette ballots only for true proven hardship cases and the military.

Until we get back to that, fraud will continue to be rampant.

Realize that your rules would also abolish almost all military voting. Be careful with glib answers. Voter ID should be a must; even the UN agrees.

They were able to figure out that 35,000 Democrats voted in the runoff. Can't they figure out how many Democrats voted for McDaniel?

These illegal votes are all Democrats, should be a no-brainer.

"Yes, we can assume such, but in a legal proceeding, we have no proof HOW they voted do we?"

Actually, it's pretty clearcut. In Mississippi, there is an election law. When you walk in a polling place, you are asked if you will be voting in the Republican primary or the Democrat primary. If you say, "Democrat". The machine lights up only the names running in the Democratic primary. If you said "Republican", only the names running as a Republican will light up. If you originally voted in the Democratic primary, you are not allowed to vote BY MISSISSIPPI LAW in the REPUBLICAN run-off (i.e., Cochran/McDaniel). It is illegal there. If you vote one party in a primary; you must vote that same party in any run-off elections.

It was not glib. It is carefully reasoned after many years observation of the deterioration of our voting process and the decline of the Republic.

I wrote absentee ballots for the military in the last sentence (ignore the “anisette” autocorrect). And strictly enforced voter ID, of course.
