McDaniel alleges 8,300 questionable ballots

By Bobby Harrison

Daily Journal Jackson Bureau

JACKSON — State Sen. Chris McDaniel, still refusing to give up his challenge to incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, said Friday via e-mail his campaign had found 8,300 questionable ballots across the state from the June 24 Republican primary runoff.

He said many of those “were unquestionably cast by voters ineligible to participate in the June 24th runoff election” that McDaniel lost to Cochran

McDaniel promised a Wednesday news conference “to discuss the evidence we have documented and our next steps.”
McDaniel has said before he intends to file a legal challenge to the June 24 election where Cochran defeated him by 194,932 votes to 187,265 votes.

This past week the McDaniel campaign sent supporters into each county to look for possible voter irregularities. The Cochran campaign, which has had representatives in each courthouse to observe the actions of the McDaniel campaign, has said only a few hundred irregularities were found.

We have now moved into the third week of Chris McDaniel continuing to assert that a monstrous fraud was committed yet he has supplied zero evidence for these allegations,” said Cochran campaign spokesman Jordan Russell. “It is extraordinarily irresponsible for an elected official to make such claims without providing proof.”

The McDaniel campaign and supporters have alleged instances of fraud, vote-buying and of people who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary ineligibly voting in the Republican runoff.

McDaniel also continues to accuse some circuit clerks of making the review of the election data difficult for his supporters. A Texas group, True the Vote, has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Republican Party, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and others claiming access to the election data is being blocked. Various state and local officials dispute those claims.

Joe Nosef, state Republican Party chair, accused True the Vote of filing a “frivolous” lawsuit and promised to seek sanctions agains the Texas-based group.

    Astonishing! Of course, there will be a high percentage of the Republican constituency, the Tea Party side, who will believe these allegations unquestionably and declare anyone who disagrees to be a communist sympathizer.

      When the examination of election results is viewed as illegitimate, election laws become obsolete.

      • Bellerophons_Revenge

        There is so much at stake in the elections now because the government is involved in so many areas that it shouldn’t be, that we may never see an honest election again. When the reward for cheating is so big, and the penalty for getting caught so small, what else can you expect?

        No candidate ever gets recalled simply because his election was fraudulent.

        • 1941641

          “Now Government is involved in elections?” Is it Tea Pot philosophy that government should not be involved? Id say from what I read in these comments that the Tea Pots think the government should maybe step aside and let them handle the elections! Beginning to end with a serious incident of Elderly Abuse, Racism stuck in the mix.

          THAT ain’t going to happen Tea Party Extremists. Get a life! Worry about the possibility of some Tea Pots spending time in the Slammer for crimes against an elderly, disabled citizen of Mississippi!

    • http://twitter.com/Throckmorton09 Biff Wellington

      funny, but the Tea Party seems to be the enemy of both the Dems and the GOP. They managed to tag team a victory for the senile old fool, simply because he represents the status quo.

  • labman57

    “Questionable ballots” = votes cast for his opponent in the run-off from voters who did not do so in the original election.

    So if you are a Republican (or a registered Democrat or Independent) who voted for Cochran in the run-off, but you did not bother to vote in the first election … then McDaniel has concluded that your vote should not count.

    • StandProudNow

      Wrong.
      If you voted in the primary of the Democrat party, you can not also vote in the primary, or run off, of the Republican party. But you already knew this…

      • Evan Cm

        that’s not what labman said. He’s saying that McDaniel is acusing all of these voters who didn’t vote at all the first time around of being illegitimate, even though they had every right to vote for Cochran.

        If he really has 8300 voters who voted in the dem primary the first time around, and then voted in the GOP primary, then he can prove it in court. Ultimately, I think this is just a sore looser who sees every Black vote that cochran got as an illegitimate vote, which says something about the kind of man he is.

    • AwakenNow

      @labman57 You are either Misinformed or Intentionally Misrepresenting. @StandProudNow is correct on the law. If someone votes in the Democratic Primary they are NOT allowed to vote in the Republican Run-Off election.

      • Evan Cm

        that’s literally what labman said, but ok

      • Leslie Morgan

        That is exactly what Labman57 said…can you not read?

  • AwakenNow

    Keep up the investigation – election integrity at stake. Payment for votes and voter fraud must be prosecuted.

    • TWBDB

      If McDaniel’s campaign had ‘clean hands’ perhaps, and that’s a long-shot of a perhaps, the allegations made by he and his supporters might be credible. Congress has been at a stalemate for years with this same allegation / investigation go no where process. Its over.

      • AwakenNow

        I’m looking forward to reading the final decision/opinion of the Federal Court.

      • AwakenNow

        I’m looking forward to reading the final decision/opinion of the Federal Court.

        The Sunherald reported – “At a hearing Friday morning (7/11/14), Harrison County Judge Roger R. Clark ruled Harrison County Circuit Clerk Gayle Parker MUST HAND OVER THE BOOKS and McDaniel must pay for the personal information (birth dates) to be redacted.”

        • TWBDB

          I would hope more than the birth dates would be redacted, like the name of the voter. Does this invasion of personal privacy not bother you?

          • AwakenNow

            Go read the article — the only personal information other than name and address was the birth date and as customary it will be redacted.

          • TWBDB

            Yes, the fact you are registered and if you voted is public record: who you voted for is not. OK then fine. I get it now. I suppose McDaniel and the Tea Party are assured the vast majority of African American voters did not and will not vote for a Tea Party candidate. Took a while to get here but at least in this debate we’ve come to the agreement, Tea Party Mississippi is happy with turning their backs on 37% of the state’s population. You’ve convinced me. I too believe this re-count investigation should go forward. Either way it turns out, this will be a positive for the State of MS.

      • ourdemascam

        I guess you can’t understand why anyone would have wished to send Thomas Jefferson to represent them in a federal government role: “When all government …in little as in great things… shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power; it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1821

        • SixSixSix

          The only Federal entity to which no others can challenge is the Supreme Court. Only the US Supreme stand above all 50 state Supreme Courts. The President in not in charge of any Governors. Congress is not in charge of any state Legislatures. The dominance of the US Supreme Court and its role beyond deciding individual cases was usurped. In that 9 unelected tyrants for life with no restrictions was never intended by the Constitution they stole, it is time for a change.

        • TWBDB

          Excellent choice! I love history and I don’t know enough about it so I absolutely love it when someone inserts a Founding Father reference into the debate. Thank you!

          Jefferson most definitely favored what we might call decentralized government or ‘states rights’ today, co-founding the Democratic –
          Republican party with Madison. Adams and Hamilton founded the Federalist. Washington more of an Independent with perhaps Federalist leaning, hated the idea of political parties and said in his farewell address “They [political parties] serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and
          extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation,
          the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the
          community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties,
          to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and
          incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and
          wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.” With a statement like that, it’s easy to understand why the 1st Congress elected George Washington as the 1st President to reside over our burgeoning nation, diverse in political and religious dogma, already in tremendous debt ( $80 million ) ; someone had to be a strong mediator of compromise. With Adam’s and Hamilton’s help, Washington was able to set the nation on its course. By the third Presidency, political wrangling
          had already taken its toll as the then vice-President, and also Founding
          Father, Aaron Burr, shot and killed Hamilton, his political rival. Washington’s
          words already ringing true.

          So to your question: Personally, I favor the Washingtonian approach myself. I can respect others of the Founding Fathers because
          they are fine examples of where ‘compromise’ must rule the day in government. As long as the United STATES of America stands, we will forever be balancing the powers of the federal, state, and judiciary branches of government as we somehow attempt to reflect the will of the people. Historically, I do not see Jefferson as an obstructionist, as I see McDaniel and the Tea Party.

          • ourdemascam

            With regards to the federal government amassing more power and drawing more and more decisions to itself, Jefferson surely was an “obstructionist,” no? We’re all “obstructionist” when it comes to the thing we oppose. If a member of the US Congress opposed to the centralization of power in Washington (i.e. someone loosely like McDaniel, if he were to get elected) is the proper role not that of “obstructionist.” Didn’t Congressman Paul get nicknamed Dr. No for all his no votes? If you’re opposed to that kind of political philosophy, that’s one thing, but I think you should still recognize that what you call “obstructionism” is a natural and valid way to exercise a philosophy like Paul’s or Jefferson’s, etc.

          • TWBDB

            Jefferson also compromised with Hamilton and Washington on the whiskey tax because regardless of the fact he opposed it politically, he realized it was a way to help pull the nation out of debt. I dare say if Paul, Cruz, or McDaniel were apart of the Constitutional Convention, we’d still be debating politics.

        Sorry, I am against your belief in a totalitarian government. If you would like to live in a place where the government in place must be supported by all citizens, I suggest you move to communist China.

        • c.g.

          Are you against government, or just “others government”? A friend of mine went to local Tea Party rally in town which was held outside….mostly old farts. He was able to speak at it and he asked the crowd: “How many of you think the government services are too big”….great applause. He then asked “How many of you get Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid? Most hands went up. He then asked ” how many of you want those services cut?” He was shouted off the stage…..Tea Party motto: Cut government, but not MY BENEFITS!!

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            Whether anyone “wants” it or not, those entitlement programs will soon be cut off unless things change. Our government borrows 46 cents out of every dollar it spends. No entity or individual can sustain that rate of borrowing for long. Unless drastic changes are made in spending, this nation will be forced into bankruptcy, and there will be no entitlements of any kind, for anybody.

            Government service is NOT corporate service. Our elected officials are sworn to represent their constituents. They are not sworn in to represent their party affiliation.

            Only in places like China, are politicians sworn to protect their party.

          • TWBDB

            Why must we go from one extreme to the other ? I don’t believe in Communism. Socialism will not work in the USA. I believe in the system of government that we have established and I believe it takes reason and compromise for our system to work properly. Our government starting with the most local all the way to the federal level should be rock solid; populated at all levels with representatives duly elected by the people, who have the integrity and bravery to weigh the issues before them and decide, Yea or Nay, based on the information available to them and the merit of the proposals: REGARDLESS OF PARTY AFFILIATION. Is that clear?

            Tell me? Is that anything like they have in China?

  • c.g.

    McDaniel needs to stop playing games…..either come up with his “evidence” or keep his big mouth shut. “Questionable” ballots are not illegal ones…….stop playing games McDaniel. Come up with actual evidence, or concede.

    • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

      What’s the hurry huckleberry? Whatcha afraid of? McDaniel doesn’t need to prove a damn thing to Thad Cochran or his supporters. McDaniel will take his evidence to an honest judge, in open court. Why does that scare you?

      • Evan Cm

        doesn’t scare anyone, but making wild accusations about election integrity without a shred of evidence is even worse than actual election fraud, as it shakes faith in a system that has ultimately proved its integrity. So if McDaniel has evidence, he should provide it, rather than doing his best Joe McCarthy impersonation, waving around lists of uneligible voters that only he knows of.

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

          Senator McDaniel doesn’t need to prove a darn thing to the corrupt Cochran campaign. He will take his evidence and present it in open court before a judge. Thad Cochran and his supporters can jump up and down as much as they care to. The Barbour thug machine doesn’t want this aired publicly. So they are screaming to high hell, in a panicky effort to avoid this challenge. Nothing they say or do will prevent McDaniel from taking this challenge to court, and allowing all the people of Mississippi to see for themselves the corruption that occurred.

          • c.g.

          • OB-Wan222

            If McDaniel is willing to wait until court to prove his case than he should wait until court to state his case.

            If McDaniel wants to present his case to the newspapers and TV stations BEFORE the trial than he should present any evidence he has BEFORE the trial.

            That’s just common sense and fairness.

            Perhaps if the Cochran campaign would cease their constant whimpering to every media outlet in Mississippi, demanding that McDaniel concede and demanding he not challenge the “result .. McDaniel would not feel as compelled to defend himself. The Barbour folks are just bullies, trying to silence McDaniel. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way .. at least not in this country. Both sides get to speak.

    • crescentfang

      When I vote in Massachusetts, my name is checked off a voters list. If the same is true in this case, there are records of who voted in both the Democratic and Republican primary. Only one candidate was encouraging anyone to do so. It should be easy to determine whether cheating resulted in McDaniel’s victory.

      The mere fact that he tried to cheat ought to be enough to disqualify him but apparently having crooks in Congress is an accepted practice.

      • c.g.

        Was Cochran encouraging voters to vote twice, or was he encouraging voters who had not voted in either the GOP or DEM primary to vote for him in the run off? I would think that many people did not vote in the Dem primary and were eligible to vote in the GOP primary and did. In most states, there is very low turn out in primaries that are uncontested….which I think was the case in the DEm primary.

  • TeflonPalin

    It doesn’t seem right that a Texas group that supports a certain opponent can swoop into a different state and look at how people voted. I would feel, at best, violated if someone got a printout of my voting record.

        while I hate to agree with him, voting records are public record and anyone can scrutinize them.

    • c.g.

      All it would show is that you voted and in which primary….poll watchers from both parties use them on a regular basis. I was a Dem poll watcher and I checked off names of people when they came in to vote….the ones that had voted in the Dem primary and hadn’t yet voted towards the end of the day, were called and reminded to vote and/or were offered rides to the polls. Standard operating procedures in most campaigns.

    • Steve Bowlus

      They _might_ have the ability to scrutinize the voting record, since these are public records.
      I don’t see how they would be able to do anything about it. I doubt they would have standing to sue in Mississippi courts. Or federal courts, where such a suit would probably wind up.

            Am not familiar with “Druggie Rush”, so cannot comment. I don’t understand how this “allegation” will affect the facts in the Mississippi case. Perhaps the Cochran side can present what you stated about “Operation Chaos” into the court record when they respond to the legal challenge.

          • c.g.

            You can’t be a conservative and not know the ‘god” of the conservative who must bow down, kiss his ring, and beg for his favors!! You must be a “closet” conservative if you don’t know who Drug Addicted Rush Limbaugh is!!

            “In late February 2008, Limbaugh announced “Operation Chaos,” a political
            call to action with the initial plan to have voters of the Republican Party temporarily cross over to vote in the Democratic primary and vote for Hillary Clinton, who at the time was in the midst of losing eleven straight primary contests to Barack Obama.”

            This primary strategy was advocated by the conservative “god” and GOPer thought it was a great political operation, but now so many are appalled that Cochran used it against McDaniel. HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            ah, thanks for explaining that “Chaos” reference. Of course I’ve heard of Rush Limbaugh. I just don’t listen to him, or much of any talk radio at all. I used to listen occasionally to “The Dana Show” out of Missouri awhile back. Found her to be a refreshing voice. I just don’t have the time for that kind of stuff.

      • Jack

        First McDaniel said he had evidence of voter fraud. Then he asked his followers to cough up $15 each to find the evidence he already said he had. Now he again claims he has the evidence.

        However, he has never shown any proof for his claims nor has he ever gone to court to contest the election results. Maybe that’s because he knows that his accusations are groundless and won’t last five minutes in open court.

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

          Legally, he cannot go to court at this time. He must present his challenge before the Mississippi GOP Executive Committee and await their verdict, before a election fraud lawsuit can be legally filed.

          Glad that I could clear up your confusion on this issue.

          • Jack

            And yet he has made no effort to do so. His lawyer says it might happen next week, but there is no sign that anything is actually being done besides whining to the press and hitting up his followers for donations.

      • 1941641

        Right on. The “great fraud” thence committed was the work of the Mc Daniel/Tea Pot crowd, no denying it! They will ultimately pay the price and the tears will flow as the losers will depart and the campaign will be forgotten. Sen. Cochran will return to his Washington Office to take up where he left off. The world will continue to turn! The Tea Party will be ever disgraced!

  • tunkashila

    Honest elections don’t fear transparent scrutiny-Missouri needs to open its books and either prove Chris McDaniel wrong or deal with its good-ol’-boy political corruption head-on.

        Agreed. So open the voter rolls and publicly prove him to the the fraudulent fool he appears to be and save the state’s voters from future silliness.

  • mary

    Total sore loser and a fool!!!

      McDaniel has integrity, built off of principle.

      Thad Cochran is a racist, who snuck into black communities and told them desperate lies. Deceived them. Used them. Justice is coming for Thad Cochran.

      • Bob

        Yes, filming an alzheimer’s patient is all class.

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

          Please don’t babble. There are no allegations of any kind that connect Senator Chris McDaniel, or his campaign staff to what happened in some distant nursing home. Zero indication of that.

          • Bob

            The fool made his first good decision by killing himself!

            He was very high up in the McDaniel’s campaign.

            Keep up please.

            Although this tragic incident was not connected in any way to the McDaniel campaign, I wish to thank you for your comment. It reveals the cold, callous heart of a Cochran supporter. I hope that all Cochran supporters aren’t filled with this type of dark hatred inside them.

          • Bob

            Calling me a Cochran supporter is a much wider stretch than saying this piece of human excrement was big in the McDaniels campaign which he was.

            I am not one of these folks that believes all human life is 100% equal. I’ll leave that to the Bible thumping and bleeding heart liberal extremists on both ends of the spectrum.

          • Arezzo

            Another of the intellectually lazy “everybody is an extremist but me” cranks. The two “ends” of the “spectrum” are hardly comparable.

          • Bob

            Where did I say anything like “everybody is an extremist but me?” Source?

            Everything is comparable.

          • Arezzo

            The “extreme left” is largely a figment of the imagination of the extreme right. Whomever it is supposed to be, its influence on the policies of the Democratic party is virtually nil. On the other hand, the lulus who think the earth is 8,000 years old and sabotaging gubmit is a good idea have come to wield so much influence on the Republican party it is probably incapable of winning a national election. Suggesting the two are comparable is a great example of false equivalence.

          • Bob

            I don’t have too many allies here. LOL. I forget the exact numbers that were alluded to, but Howard Dean said on Bill Maher, “10% of our constituents are nuts but about 60% of the other side are nuts.” I think that’s likely accurate.

            If you’re more liberal than I am, that’s fine. I must make one correction. A lot of the other side believes the Earth is 4,000 years, not 8,000. :)

            I was responding to Liz, and basically saying if someone is exceedingly hideous I don’t care if they off themselves, maybe it was a good idea for the rest of the planet. If that’s offensive, to some, well sorry. We all get offended by one thing or another.

          • laugh_or_cry

            The guy was going spill the beans so McDaniel had him silenced and made it look like a suicide

            Yes, I saw a video of this online, where McDaniel himself ordered “the hit”. I’ll see if I can find the link for you. #Tool

          • laugh_or_cry

            It’s true. He used his Republiklan connections

          • 1941641

            You know, you may have nailed it! McDaniel sorta favors a mafia boss come to think of it! Like in the God Father several years back. Strange events happen in quests for political/mob power. Strange!

          • bobcat4424

            The lawyer was about to lose his license to practice law and had just lost all his major accounts with banks and mortgage companies and laid off his staff. His crime? The two people who actually did the break-in both ratted him out as the person who advised them to do the crime and told them how to get into the particular facility. Not connected in any way???? What planet are you calling from?

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            Yes, there was a conspiracy to threaten, harass, and intimidate Mark Mayfield. These things you mention actually happened. That is why there is now an investigation into criminal charges against Madison County officials. A civil suit is pending as well.

          • TWBDB

            Bob, that was totally uncalled for and you should apologize for that statement.

          • Bob

            If a person purposely filmed or condoned the filming of an alzheimer’s patient for political gain, I have no apology. If it has been shown that he had no role in this whatsoever, I will apologize.

          • TWBDB

            Bob, my mother died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease within the last six months so I’m quite sensitive to the monstrous act committed against MS Cochran and her family. I understand your anger completely: but let’s stay above their level.

          • Jebby Sanderson

            That is disgusting to say.

            And he was not involved with McDaniel’s campaign in any capacity.

          • Bob

            I realize that offends some people, but I’ll reiterate if a grown adult knowingly approved of, and/or participated in the taping of a sick patient for political gain, I am happy he killed himself and the world is a better place for it. Yes, he was involved in the campaign and his type of thinking are conducive with McDaniel and their followers, hateful and racist.

          • Bob

            What’s disgusting is that filming a candidate’s wife in a hospital was considered as something to use against an opponent. It was meant to be effective!

            That tells you just how vile and disgusting the typical McDaniel voter is.

            Fact: McDaniel’s Chairman called the former bucket of spit, “An honorable man.”

            That “Zero indication” is awaiting a court appearance by Sen. McDaniel when he is put on the spot to admit all his involvement in crimes against an elderly Mississippi woman, and for the death of one of his own Tea Pot supporters who made a grave error in doing Mc Daniel’s dirty work. Full disclosure and the re-percussions thereof are only a few days away. Meanwhile, Sen. Cochran will continue to prepare for an additional six year term in Washington.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            McDaniel has already been absolved of any connection by the authorities. Nothing to see here —-> move along —->

          • 1941641

            You wish he had been absolved. That’s just your ignorance in control of your feeble mind! Try rearranging your mindset to accept the discomforts of defeat because they are coming soon to a theater near you! Titled “Mc Daniel Bites The Dust In Mississippi, Finally”!

            I’ll wait to see an actual preview for that flick before I reserve a ticket.

          • bobcat4424

            I am sure that the Tea Baggers supplied McDaniel with boatloads of “credible deniability.” But still, they were his agents and therefore he is equally culpable from a moral or ethical standpoint. It’s kinda like the driver of the getaway car for a bank robbery saying that he was not involved because he was legally parked.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            Yet it is Madison Mayor, Mary Butler and the Madison County Police department that are now facing litigation and possible criminal charges, for conspiring to intimidate, threaten, and harass Mark Mayfield. Sending a SWAT team to an attorney’s office. Intimidating and threatening Mayfield’s clients. Of course Butler happens to be a Haley Barbour operative. What a coincidence.

          • 1941641

            The Mc Daniel crowd seems to be so obsessed with lawsuits I’m starting to wonder when they will sue Jesus Christ for not endorsing the Tea Potty on the very first day of his campaign.

      • dtschuck

        LOL

      • Evan Cm

        hahahahhaha. So, remind me which candidate is trying to get the votes of black voters deemed ineligible again?

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

          Voters who double dipped the ballot, participating in the Democratic primary on June 3rd, and then voted again in the Republican run-off on June 24th, have committed a criminal act. They have willfully cast illegal ballots. I don’t care if those Democrats are white, black, green, or purple. These illegal votes must, and will be expunged. Integrity in elections matter (unless your a Cochran supporter).

          • Leslie Morgan

            Sounds like ag reat reason to once again blame blacks and Dems! Doesn’t that ever seem like reptition for you republicans with so much integrity? That is a comical excuse.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            Thank you Leslie for sharing your view that election fraud is acceptable to you. I disagree, and believe that only one vote per person should be allowed in elections. It seems the only fair way (in my opinion).

          • c.g.

            No proof that any voter voted twice…….put up or shut up. It is likely that many Black voters did not vote in the Dem primary, but chose to vote against McDaniel in the GOP primary……which is legal.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            Yes .. you’ve said that “put up or shut up” nonsense a dozen times. Don’t you get bored of yourself?

            No matter how many times you try to intimidate and silence McDaniel supporters, we will not yield to your tyrannical voice.

          • TruthandFreedom

            Hate to burst your bubble but there has already been proof of the double voting. It has been copied and even posted on the net!

          • c.g.

            And everything posted on the “net” is ALWAYS CORRECT!! I saw on the “net” that there is a Nigerian family that desperately wants to get millions of dollars out of the country and “if” you send them some money and assist them, they will split all of the millions with you….I’ll look it up and give you the “link”….since you believe everything that is on the “net”.

            Evidence of fraud needs to be addressed with the authorities…..not posted on the “net” as fact.

          • TruthandFreedom

            Don’t you worry…. lawsuit is coming! :)

          • bobcat4424

            I would also point out that when a voter voted in the Mississippi Democratic Primary, his name was crossed out from the primary rolls period. If that person then showed up to vote in the Republican primary, his name would have already been stricken and he would not be allowed to vote. In fact, he would not be likely even be able to cast a provisional ballot unless he could demonstrate that he was not the original voter.
            The strike-off poll list is so effective that there is almost zero voter fraud at the polls. That’s why it has been used for over 300 years. There are fewer than 10 cases of voter fraud at the polls in this country in any given year in all elections combined. Voter fraud is most often in two forms: a) improprieties in the collection of voter signatures for candidacy requirements, and b) in absentee ballots where the most common fraud is a man voting for his wife without her knowledge by absentee ballot. The GOP has strongly resisted any attempts to crack down on absentee ballots, early voting, and challenges to candidacy signatures since fraud in those areas tends to favor GOP candidates by a wide margin.
            There are no illegal immigrants voting — the proof of citizenship requirements for voter registration pretty much stops that and really, folks, why would an illegal immigrants risk jail time to cast a vote in the Mississippi Republican primary? Do you really think that they say, “Hola, Mississippi is the third most corrupt state in the United States so I think I will vote in their Republican primary!” No, they treat American politics more like the plague that it often is.

          • c.g.

            No proof of this happening….only talk…..McDaniel needs to show the evidence that voters voted in both primaries….or shut up.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            McDaniel will follow the only correct legal process, and present his evidence in court. Your attempt to intimidate is rejected.

          • bobcat4424

            So far the only person associated with criminal activity in this election has been the McDaniel campaign. They purposefully broke into a nursing home (a felony) and taped Cochran’s bedridden wife (who has Alzheimer’s) to be used to show that somehow Cochran is in league with the Devil. The lawyer who advised the TeaBagGate group has already taken his own life in disgrace rather than lose his license to practice law and face the public embarrassment of being labeled a sexual offender felon in front of his family. So, it you want to talk about breaking election laws, McDaniel is your man.

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            McDaniel and his campaign were long ago absolved of any connection to this incident by all of the law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation.

            Your just ranting now. Stop! It makes you look silly, and just invalidates every other comment you make.

          • Arezzo

            No, it doesn’t.

          • 1941641

            Mc Daniel hasn’t been “absolved” of anything yet. Don’t get ahead of reality in this ongoing investigation. Mc Daniel could well be bound for the Slammer before this case is closed!

          • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

            ya ya ya .. That’s about as likely as Thad Cochran finding his way to the Senate dining room without assistance.

          • dusel1

            The evidence is easily found, unless Cockran et al destroy the evidence.

          • c.g.

            If it is so “easily found”, why has there been no legal challenges? If they don’t come forward soon. any credibility that McDaniel has will completely go away and he will just be considered a whiner and sore loser. And don’t give us that nonsense that “Cochran destroyed the evidence”….that is a nice excuse if McDaniel can’t find the evidence and McDaniel will look worse than he already does.

        • Jebby Sanderson

          This has nothing to do with race. Your race-baiting is pathetic. This has to do with people voting illegally, regardless of the color of their skin.

        At least Cochran went into black communities which is more than anyone cab say for McDaniel.

          Mitch McConnell and the corrupt GOP D.C. establishment are much more afraid of Chris McDaniel than Obama is.

          • c.g.

            Obama is not afraid of any of them, but don’t expect Black voters to be fond of McDaniel and if they don’t want him to represent them in Congress, then they have every reason to vote for the lesser of 2 evils.

      • 1941641

        You are off your rocker if you think anybody in America thinks for a second that Thad Cochran is racist. The only ones who “snuck” into a community were Mc Daniel Tea Pot thugs who “snuck” in to an elderly womans nursing home facility and are subject to pending jail-time for Elderly Abuse. “Integrity built off of principle” You must be snorting some powerful stuff. Be careful you may snort real big and fall into an old abandoned sewer somewhere and never be seen or heard from again!

        • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

          In reality, I don’t believe that Thad Cochran “thinks” anything. During his “non-campaign”, it was difficult to find a moment where he was able to put two coherent sentences together. His mental capacity is obviously greatly diminished.

          In truth, it’s the Barbour clan who displayed overt racism here. Shameful exploitation of African-Americans. They rented them out as if they were hookers.

          • TWBDB

            What’s wrong with Childers ?

      • 1941641

        Black people aren’t dumb at all. They know who the real racist is in this election. They know it’s not Thad Cochran. Thousands have supported him in previous Mississippi elections. The Tea Pots have already succeeded in lying themselves out of contention in this race. I suppose you could say the Tea Pots have already self-destructed themselves with lies, racism and abuse of the elderly and handicapped. It was to be expected. Nothing is new.

        Just waiting on Mc Daniel’s concession speech so life can commence once again.

  • November Song

    I guarantee you that if it’s determined that this election was stolen and the moderate establishment blocks the truth then Cochran will lose the general election to Childress. I am a long time, staunch republican and I will not vote for Cochran and I will work for a third party candidate.

    • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

      According to the recent (post run-off) Chism Strategies poll, 80% of McDaniel supporters said they will abandon the GOP in November if Cochran is the nominee. No matter what happens, Thad Cochran will not be allowed to serve another term.

  • http://ajweberman.net ajweberman

    White Republican Mississippians were disenfranchised in this primary by Blacks. The state needs two things – closed primaries and Freedom Riders with a different orientation than in the 1960’s.

    • SolomonSanford

      • http://ajweberman.net ajweberman

        nothing to do with the KKK, I mean the tea party who the SPLC judges to be predominantly not racist. The Whites wanted one candidate to win. The Blacks say “You can’t have this candidate” so the Whites are loosing their right to choose, their right to vote. Disenfranchisement! Black racism! Who had the biggest racialist demonstration in recent American history? The Blacks Million Man March.

        • c.g.

          So the Blacks are at fault for voting against a candidate that they don’t like and Whites are losing their right to choose? With your logic, if the Blacks want the Democratic candidate to win, but the Whites vote against him, it would appear that the Blacks are losing their right to choose.

          Very easy solution. Have a GOP candidate that appeals to both white and black voters…apparently it was not McDaniel……but it was Cochran. Black voters most probably voted for Cochran because of the attacks on Obama by the Tea Party types, and they most probably chose Cochran (over McDaniel) who is the lesser of 2 evils. At least the voters in Miss (both white and black)know where they stand with Cochran…..McDaniel is a loose canyon and may be too conservative/nutso even for Miss!!

          Back some years ago there were these big rallies/marches that focused on men who were religious. Can’t remember the name of them, but I knew of men who attended……didn’t seem much different that Million Man March….except it only encompassed Christians….excluded others of different faiths. In US people are free to demonstrate for any cause/political philosophy/religion they want….and they do!

He’s a cold-blooded, narcissistic, snide, pathological, hateful fiend on some kind of weird demonic ego trip. There is an operative reason why the mainstream media doesn’t cover this friend of Reverend Wright and Obama.

        • TWBDB

          You’re reason is way off base : if we assume few Blacks voted in the 1st Republican primary, it’s safe to say 1/2 the whites who voted in the 1st Republican primary wanted Cochran to win. But there’s definitely one thing MS had better start bearing in mind. MS ranks #1 in the highest percentage of African Americans per capita, and #9 in the highest percentage of minorities overall. Factor in a few other metrics and it’s a certainty, MS will most likely be one of the first states to be run by minority vote. All it will take is a pressing motivator to mobilize that voting block. So, you’re prediction may well come true but for entirely different reasons than you state.

      • ourdemascam

        Cute argument, but the reality is that voting in the opposing party’s primary is often legal, pretty much always legal if you’re already registered with that party (and there are no rules about registering with the party you’re philosophically opposed to.) The only rule that anyone can practically enforce is voting in Republican and Democratic primaries in the same election cycle, and since there was a run-off vote this year, that opened this highly unusual opportunity for breaking the rules (as opposed to the norm of just breaking the spirit of the law, which is perfectly legal.)

        • c.g.

          No evidence has been presented that anyone voted in both primaries…..only talk. Many do not vote in primaries so it would not be unusual for a much smaller number to vote in the Dem. primary than in the GOP one where their “”appeared” to be clear differences between the candidates. So anyone who did not vote in the Dem primary, can vote in the “run off” GOP one. Fraud is only if a person voted in both Dem and GOP primaries….if McDaniel has evidence of that he needs to show it….until then it is just talk.

          • R D

            No. Evidence is extant of voters voting in both elections.

          • c.g.

            Prove it…..until it is “proven” that voters voted in both Dem and GOP primaries, it is all TALK.

  • bobcat4424

    Needless to say, the 8300 votes being questioned all belonged to African-Americans which McDaniel insists should be only counted as 3/5 of a vote each as it is stated in the Constitution. Also, the original writers of the Constitution never intended women to ever vote, so all female votes need to be stricken. And the gay vote. And, of course, we know that anyone who speaks with a foreign accent is an illegal immigrant, so anyone with a foreign-sounding name (like Obama) should not be counted. And we need not to even mention voters who are cult members, such as Mormons and Jews and Muslims who never should have been allowed to register. That leaves 16 old white men voting for McDaniel and 22 old white men voting for Cochran.

      Did you write that? .. or was a copy a paste job?

    • ourdemascam

      You do know the three-fifths rule was a compromise: the North didn’t want to count blacks at all; the South wanted to count blacks fully, so blame that one on Massachusetts.

      • dtschuck

        The North wanted to count all freemen as one. The South wanted to count their slave chattel as a full person, not out of respect for the slave, but to try to gain political power. The modern day version of this is Republican Gerrymandering.

      • bobcat4424

        You are completely wrong about the reason for the 3/5 rule. The Founding Fathers were mostly slave owners, but who also saw the handwriting on the wall that slavery was being faced with changing international norms. So they made the slaves count as 3/5 of a person only for the purposes of House apportionment. A number of Southern states took this a step further by allowing slave owners to case 3/5 of a vote (in addition to their own) for any male adult slave. But the purposes of the Founding Fathers was to give the slave owners significantly more weight in Congress than the non-slave owners. The Founding Fathers were only loading the dice in favor of slavery because of their own slave ownership. The rest is just something you made up and is not historically accurate.

        • ourdemascam

          Look up “three-fifths compromise” on wikipedia or read your history anywhere else. What I said is precisely true. Who knows how you made up or falsely learned your nonsense.

      “counted as 3/5 of a vote”

      Lie much?

      • bobcat4424

        The 3/5 of a vote is in the Constitution. It was an attempt by the Founding Fathers to keep slavery legal forever by simply allowing states with large numbers of slaves to count them as 3/5 of a person for House apportionment purposes. Some Southern states (including Mississippi) took this a step further and allowed the owner of an adult male slave to cast 3/5 of a vote for each slave owned in addition to his own. Women, slave or free, were not allowed the vote.
        The majority of people who self-identify as “neo-con” think that it was a huge mistake to allow African-Americans or women to vote and goes against the “original” Constitution. McDaniel is a self-described “Originist Constitutionalist” and apparently also believes in antebellum ways.

        Why do you even need a hood? Tea Pot Racism glows in the dark at night and in the light throughout the day. That’s probably how so many black people were able to tell just who Mc Daniel really is! A right-wing Mississippi Racist! Hence, they voted for Cochran. It’s just that simple!

        • R D

          Here’s a white hyena telling black people who to vote for or how they voted.

    • mike_smith

      What are you babbling about? There is no suggestion that the KKKers were not involved in this election, unless Cockran contacted them. You are aware that all KKKers are democrats, right?

      • TWBDB

        The KKK was considered to be the terrorist arm of the Democrat party at one time. That all changed in 1964, when the Republican and Democrat party essentially began their switch of platform in the South. Dem flight to the Republican party is well documented.

        • mike_smith

          Nothing changed in 1964, you fool. Democrats voted against LBJ’s civil rights and Republicans voted for it.

          • TWBDB

            Mr Smith and Mr McCullough. Do yourself a favor and look at who favored and who opposed the 1964 Civil Rights act. Yes, Republicans were at one time socially liberal and tended to side with Northern and Western Democrats on these issues. Southern Democrats overwhelmingly opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and felt betrayed by LBJ and his allies in the Democratic Party who helped to cross political lines to get the bill passed. Then along came Nixon’s Southern Strategy, which in brief sought to align the socially conservative faction of the Republican Party with Southern Democrats. By 1990, the transition was essentially complete. You guys need to learn your history instead of trying to rewrite it.

  • Xious Z

    Only 8,300? He should have pulled the number 376,323 out o his has to claim it as questionable. That’s the total votes cast. Would have made his case a lot stronger – full of hard constipated tool.

  • crescentfang

    There is a big difference between a “few hundred” and 8,300. Only one thing is clear so far: McDaniel encouraged Democrats to vote for him knowing they had probably already voted in the Democratic primary. He was certainly trying to cheat, whether he succeeded or not.

    • AwakenNow

      You need to change “McDaniel” to “Cochran.”

    • c.g.

      Cochran may have encouraged Dems to vote for him in the run off primary, but where is it documented that he told Dems to vote for him even if they had voted in the Dem primary? Any candidate can ask voters to vote for him…..that is the American way. Unless you have documentation that he specifically told Dem voters (who had already voted in the Dem primary) to vote for him……that is only your opinion…and is worth fairly nothing in legal terms.

      • crescentfang

        As a life long Republican I would not vote for a candidate that won the Republican nomination based on an appeal for Democratic votes.
        The legal issue is different and depends on how many Democrats voted in both primaries. Hopefully that is a matter of record.

        • c.g.

          Who voted in each of the primaries should be a matter of record and easily attained. So it is preplexing that no solid evidence has been presented that there were illegal voting….maybe in the future. But until the evidence is presented of wrong doing and that the illegal ballots thrown out, Cochran is the winner of the GOP primary and voters will need to make decisions on who to vote for in Nov.

  • walkman321

    Damn sore loser huh

  • Henry Major

    It seems very unlikely that these 8300 votes are all ineligible. Given that the difference is 7667 votes, 93% of them would have to be ineligible AND for Cochran, and that isn’t going to happen. McDaniel should just vow to be back next election, stronger than ever.

    • http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJBG9zqKlqSMeoGWk8Sabog iizthatiiz

      Over 25% of the counties still remain unexamined. Plus all the absentee ballots. That number could rise significantly.

    • ourdemascam

      It doesn’t seem so unlikely at all in a vote with nearly 400,000 total votes, especially with all the publicity and involvement from groups that normally only deal in Democratic primaries with Democratic primary voters which mostly are ineligible to vote in the Republican primary. Obviously, I don’t know what the truth of the matter is, but it’s entirely plausible. In any case, McDaniel’s challenge should show give us a much better idea what the reality is.

  • nell eakin

    Diebold voting machines, built by a man who proclaimed they would make GWB win, are still in service. It is well known they are easily hackable, and lead us to the fact that Dems can only win when when they win by a landslide, otherwise its close enough for the GOP to cheat. We are not stupid enough in numbers big enough to vote against our own self interest so they could win by other means,. They cheat. Retire these damned machines.

      Liberals only know what they know. Cheating is the only way a democrat can win. There are hundreds of examples of that fact. Just like the 159 precincts in Philly that voted 100% for the inept, incompetent, inexperienced, anti-American, socialistic, muslim-leaning, ex-lawyer doofus residing in our White House, right now. It is what they do.

      • Guest

        I had a typo in that last comment for which I apologize. I don’t know how to edit. I meant to say GOP, not the word slobs. Sorry. really.

      • TWBDB

        Can you explain the right-wing compunction for over-the-top over exaggeration and blanket defamation ? You all take a little fact and blow it into an outrageous fabrication: in 2012, 59, not 159, Philly precincts went 100% Obama, 57 of those went 100% Obama in 2008. Those 59 precincts are inner-city, African American neighborhoods representing 3% of Philly’s total vote or about 19,000 votes. It’s estimated 93% of the African American vote went to Obama nationally; but he doesn’t hold the record for the highest percentage of African American voters, that title goes to Lyndon Johnson in 1968 at 94%. It’s not hard to figure out why, and it’s not difficult to figure why so many in the Democrat party shifted to the Republicans during that time period. Those high percentages haven’t always been the case.

        25 of the 44 presidents have been lawyers. 15 Democrat, 18 Republican, 43 white male and 1 mixed-race (white / black) raised in a white family in HI where there are over 70% minority citizens.

        With MS leading the nation in the highest percentage of African Americans per capita, it amazes me that certain political factions in MS would continue to question the validity of their votes and who they vote for. It will come back to bite you.

      • c.g.

        If “cheating” is what Dems do…..why are all of the McDaniel TP nuts claiming that the Cochran and GOP party cheated and stole the election from McDaniel? It sounds to me that whenever an election doesn’t go the way that people (like you ) and the TP group want it to go….you charge cheating….I guess as you guys continue to lose at the polls you have to have someone to blame…..instead of realizing that the majority of people are not behind the GOP and especially the Tea Party nut cakes.

        • mike_smith

          This is WAY above your intelligence level, but lets just say that Cochran took a page out of the democrat playbook.

          • c.g.

            Actually, Cochran took the page out of the Rush Limbaugh play book when
            Druggie Rush started “Operation Chaos” and wanted his “diddo” heads to
            vote in the Dem primaries for Hillary since Obama was winning the
            primaries. He thought it was a great idea to try to “turn” the election
            towards Hillary who he thought would be easier to beat than Obama. So
            Druggie Rush was the originator of the “plan” that Cochran so
            successfully used against McDaniel. As far as I know, Druggie Rush does
            not claim to be a Dem.

          • mike_smith

            Yes, I agree….Druggie Rush is very funny and quite a joke…..his Operation Chaos didn’t work for the GOP crossing over and voting for Hillary, but it appears that Cochran’s operation worked quite well…..now the joke is on McDaniel and the Tea Party nutsos.
