Posted on 06/27/2014 3:18:57 AM PDT by kingattax
Sen. Thad Cochrans second-round primary victory may be nullified if Chris McDaniels team can show the margin of victory was less than the number of people who wrongly voted in both Democratic and GOP primaries.
Its tedious, but it is a simple task [to check and] Mississippi state law is very clear on this, said Bill Pascoe, a political consultant for Independent Womens Voice, which backed McDaniel.
Last July, the mayoral election for the states fourth largest city, Hattiesburg, was nullified after the losing candidate showed that the 37-vote margin of victory was smaller than the pool of suspect absentee ballots.
Those absentee ballots included 36 that were delivered to the Democratic mayors wife, and were later filled out by jail inmates, including a felon who was disbarred from voting.
McDaniel took the first step June 26 to reverse his defeat by asking the Mississippi GOP Chairman Joe Nosef to help McDaniels volunteers inspect the so-called pollbooks.
Those books record who cast a ballot in the June 3 Democratic primary and in the June 24 Republican primary runoff. If the number of voters have cast ballots in both elections is smaller than Cochrans margin of victory, Pascoe said, the court will schedule a third election.

McD refused to concede---he spoke out against what was clearly a stolen election.
Which is what Romney should have done.
THEY MAY HAVEDONE THIS BEFORE IN OTHER CROSSOVER STATES.
Happened to Allen West in Florida!
Let’s hope a revote is limited to only legal 6/24 voters
Undoubtedly ringers.....voter fraud at its finest.
<><> Bringing in voting machines w/ votes already entered;
<><> busing in ringers to successive precincts---all illegally registered to vote;
<><> one voter casting ballots several times;
<><> Obamacare is a huge voter fraud machine---registering unsuspecting enrollees who get plugged into Democrat voter rolls; healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site. Local couple received pre-marked voter registration card from "Covered California" (Cali O/Care); an envelope from the state's Obamacare website contained a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.
<><> Another Obamacare web site reported it "accidentally" registered 4000 latinos (h/care.gov is also a voter registration site).
<><> FReeper GOPJ posted----Democrats vote the registration cards of people who don't show up to vote.
<><> GOPJ posted---the dead vote is an accidental byproduct of the registration card cheat. And a way to tell the extent of their cheating.
<><> The buzz from Chicago is, you could be a lifelong registered Republican, but once you die, you are a registered Democrat who votes in every election.....rain or shine.
<><> FREEPER KENNY BUNK INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: .....these days, the major chicanery is done with absentees and computers. Dead people are absent, are they not? Virtual people invented by your Sim City program are absent, too. Are they not? Virtual voters are often generated from the dead, who are presumed to have multi-generational families. These techniques grew up with computers. The pioneers were the Sanchez Sisters in Orange county, CA. Loretta's team just plain invented about 7500 voters. They also worked hard to illegally register aliens, legal and illegal, felons. The tech has matured to the point where CA is reputed to have half-a-million fraudulent votes available. It has also been reported that about 75 seats in the CA legislature were filled by fraudulent election tactics.
<><> Judges of Elections know the tricks. 75 voters registered at a house that doesn't exist on a non-existent street; another 50 registered at an address that is a gas station ... or an empty lot.
Every corrupt person had a moment in their life where they could either do the right thing or do the thing that ingratiated them to corrupt men.
So do we, and we vote. Those guys had better remember which side of the bread the butter is on before it’s too late for them. We’ve had it with corruption and we will be coming after them next so they will do us a BIG favor by clearly identifying themselves.
“Chris is destroying any future chance he may have at a statewide or national office”
Is that the Establishment threat that is making its rounds on the various blogs?

They’ll get over it.
You sound worried, Haley — and you should be.
Tom McClintock in CA has had to fight for many years against his own state party leaders. It's been a long haul but he's come out on top by not giving up and staying true to his conservativism.
I agree with your posts. OldRanchHand seems to think that all should play footsie with the establishment. He does not seem to understand that the conservatives are in a death struggle with those who would destroy America as we once knew it.
From what I have seen, while possible, the lilely hood is not probable.
There was evidence of voters that voted in the Dem primary were turned away and not allowed to vote in the Runoff.
Even when we're talking about Republican voter fraud, some Democrat's gotta be the one-up guy.
True, that. There is a news report that names a woman who was turned away for just that. At the same time, there are reports that there is evidence of 1,000 voters who voted in the DEM primary and GOP runoff. That makes those votes invalid in the GOP runoff.
It would be unusual if all the evidence swung in one direction. There are more than a quarter million votes, and it would be odd indeed if all the irregularities swung n one direction, or if all the attempts at irregular voting resulted in an invalid ballot being cast.
It looks like McDaniel would have won had it not been for the cheating, regardless of how many of the state’s pols supported Cochran, so I can’t see that they’d have much foundation for blacklisting McDaniel in the future.
In any case, the cheating here was so blatant, followed by an embarrassing chorus of black Dem voters congratulating themselves on having “elected” the GOP candidate, that I hate to think Mississippi’s politicians are so corrupt that they will fight to defend this.
So do Mississippi voters, I’ll not vote for any incumbent who supported thad who didn’t step forward and condemn the recruiting of democrats into our primary. I don’t know of any who did.
Whether Dem voters got to vote in the GOP run-off or not was probably a function of the election procedures of the particular county in which they were registered. If MS is like the rest of the places I’ve lived, some counties are very careful to check information, some aren’t.
I’m not sure how many irregular voters he actually needs to prove. The margin of victory was about 6,000 votes in the run-off. I don’t know if that means he has to prove 12,000 votes were illegal (because theoretically, the illegal votes could have gone either way) or just find enough to prove that the election was seriously tainted by the illegal votes and thus get it thrown out.
Anyway, this election was the bomb that destroyed the Democrat Party's hold on the Governor's mansion. Prior to that election, Republicans had to change parties to Democrats for any hope of winning. After that election, there has been only one elected Democrat governor in Alabama.
McDaniel needs to tread carefully here. The paper trails are much better today, and he has legal precedence.
But the question is the same right now for both Cochran and McDaniel.
Can Cochran beat Democrat Travis Childers without the support of McDaniel's supporters? Probably not, because now that the Democrats have exercised their GOTV effort in the Republican runoff, they are no doubt salivating at what they might be able to accomplish in November.
Can McDaniel beat Childers without the support of Cochran's supporters? No way, because the same Democrat GOTV effort which carried Cochran over the line will be used to get Childers elected.
If McDaniel wins the election in court, and loses the general election to Childers, it will put back the TEA party movement. If Cochran loses to Childers, it will actually strengthen the TEA party movement.
I say McDaniel should gently pursue efforts to ensure the election was valid, but ultimately, let Cochran stew in his own juices.
You are correct, hence my distinction between possible and probable.
Sometimes you have to do the right thing regardless. If more politicians adopted that motto, we’d have more honest politicians and more honest elections.
If McDaniel does nothing, then it will embolden more Cochrans and Democrats to adopt the same strategy in future primaries.
Even if McDaniel is unsuccessful in the endeavor, it sends a message that people are taking notes and taking names and it’s going to be a lot harder to get away with these shenanigans in the future.
The South's value in slaves was more than all the northern RRs and textile mills put together. If the South could extend slavery into the territories, the DEFINITION of property would sooner or later have to, by law and by logic, be extended back into the north. If the definition of people as people, not property, on the other hand was established in the territories, it would soon creep into the South.
The Confederacy was founded almost solely on slavery, and had THREE separate articles in its constitution protecting slavery. Nope, Lincoln was right.
Since they can tell if a person voted in both primaries for two different candidates, then they are obviously keeping track of who voted for whom. With that being said, they can also develop an electronic voting that would only allow a person to vote once and only once.
They got away with it there.
Now they did the same thing in Mississippi and Cochran goes unpunished, they will do it AGAIN.
That might be possible, but it's not necessary and we're guaranteed that our vote is to be kept private. That's the way it should be because people shouldn't be threatened to vote a certain way with the rationale that "we can find out who you voted for and if it's not the way we want you to vote, you'll pay".
It's enough to find out if there were enough illegal votes that the election could have been swayed had they all voted for Cochran. It may not even require the full 6,000 or so that Cochran won by, but if they did find that many, this election is toast. Because how could anyone prove they didn't all vote for Cochran without sacrificing the privacy of the ballot?
Guys I need help quickly. I have a friend at a county courthouse in MS and she is adding for a copy of the voter rolls, they are charging her 100.00 for the disk if rollsjust fromthe runoff and primary. ...
this can’t be right. Any advice?
You give him/her a lot of credit. I suspect he understands exactly what he's saying.
And I was referring to the reporter, not McDaniel.
I think Mr Munro means "barred" from voting. To be "disbarred" would be to be booted out of yer cushy lawyerin' job.
