The Real Story: Chris McDaniel’s Historic US Senate Campaign

Chris McDaniel deserves a clean victory. There should be no write-in, no other election, or no third party solution.. McDaniel won this race fair and square. and should be the nominee. Let’s pray he prevails. He has the evidence. He has the fight in him. And he has the Truth on his side. What more can we ask? There is no gray area here. It’s black and white. I don’t think in this case Cochran has a LEG to stand on. What the GOPe did was not only unfair it was illegal. Cochran and the GOPe have exposed themselves. They will have to answer for their deeds: heads will have to roll. and arrests made if need be. This is one victory they will have no moral or political authority over. They’ve cheated before but finally got caught. It’s illegality clear as day. The race has even transcended even politics. It has an inspiring message that you never surrender if you believe that what you are doing is right.

In his most recent column on the establishment website Y’all Politics, Frank Corder gives his assessment of the current state of politics in Mississippi and his predictions for the general election this November and state races in 2015.

But what caught my attention, aside from his flawed analysis, has been his consistent downplaying of Senator Chris McDaniel’s historic effort to replace Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. This has been the theme, not only from Corder and the hacks at Y’all Politics, but also from the media establishment throughout the state.

It’s Official! Chris McDaniel to File Formal Legal Challenge.

By Isabel Matos

Updated 8:40 p.m. Digital Copy of Challenge Filed

Chris McDaniel’s campaign has announced it is challenging the results of the June 24th runoff election because of evidence that McDaniel should have won. The formal challenge will be sent to the Mississippi Republican Party Executive Committee Monday.

In the afternoon press conference, Chris McDaniel said he sees this as an opportunity for the party to take the lead on honest, good transparent elections. He says he believes the Executive Committee will grant them a hearing. His attorney went on to say they hope that will happen 8 days from now.

You’ll remember, the GOP Executive Committee had already unanimously voted to certify the election results. Since the runoff, McDaniel volunteers have spent days pouring through poll books and ballot materials. One concern has been crossover votes.

McDaniels campaign says it has found approximately 3,500 crossover votes and that “mathematics” show McDaniel should have won Republican nomination. Certified results showed incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran with a 7,667 vote margin of victory.State election law prohibits anyone from voting in a party’s primary and the other party’s runoff. McDaniel’s campaign claims that Democrats helped Cochran win the election.

Earlier Monday, Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said he’s tried to remain neutral throughout the whole process. He says he still can’t say a whole lot about the challenge because he would serve in a judge role for the GOP executive committee.

There are limited rules on how the Executive Committee will handle challenges. The party chairman says there’s not really a precedent for this.

UPDATED 3:28 by Isabel: Attorney Mitch Tyner said that 71 percent of those who voted for Cochran in the run off admitted they would not vote for him in the election. He said that if the courts accept their information McDaniel won by 25,000 votes. They want an Open hearing where Republicans – all Republicans – can be present to ensure fairness.  As we await the official clip you may refer to the last press conference with information on what they had found. First photo courtesy of Maria Mchnis Mooney.  Other two by Isabel Matos.

GOPe Would Rather Lose to Obama than Let Conservative Base Win.

By Isabel Matos

CRACKPOT
1. NOUN – a person who is eccentric, unrealistic, or fanatical.
2. ADJECTIVE – eccentric; impractical; fanatical: crackpot ideas.

Rick Shaftan says the GOP establishment calls the base nuts and kooks. It’s how they think. The disconnect is an attitude that is contemptuous of people of faith (us):  patronizing and condescending about the sanctity of life, gay marriage. He says the GOPe also uses the term crackpots, talks about keeping us “in line” and criticizes us for religious beliefs. The people who vote for Obama get what they want, our side make excuses for not doing what we voted them in to do.

Regarding the tie from the Barbours to the race-baiting ads, what really is offending people is not the elections results, it’s that the dollars as donors to the Republican committees are being used to pay for ads which are attacking conservatives. They don’t do this to Democrats. Shaftan noted how Mitt Romney went after Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum ten times harder than they he ever did Barack Obama.

That is why we never win. They just hate us. As soon as the conservative is defeated as far as they’re concerned the election’s over.  As far as the GOPe is concerned, if Romney wins, we get some job. If Obama wins, at least a Conservative is not in power.

If Cochran is reelected, there will be embarrassing and awkward moments far worse than the farm animals comments.  The GOPe has given the advantage to the Democrat in this race.  To avoid that, Cochran would have to tell McDaniel supporters to vote for him, which is not gonna happen. Voters are so upset with the GOP establishment and the GOPe money coming into the state to tag Tea Partiers as racists and virtual defacto members of the KKK that there is no way in the world those people will vote for Cochran. They will either sit it out, vote for Childers or write-in Chris McDaniel’s name even if their vote doesn’t count, as a protest vote.  Shaftan says the objection was not the arguments against social-cultural conservative issues, but the lies about them taking away food stamps, etc. It was an economic left-wing argument, not a conservative one about why African-Americans should vote for Cochran.  This could be a banner year for Republicans….

The bottom line is that the GOPe has nothing but complete and utter contempt for the grassroots which the left does not have for theirs.  The solution is to STOP giving money to national party, support candidates individually and see if they talk about the issues that are important to you. If you don’t hear them talk about those issues, then they are probably holding the wrong position on them.

Speaking of crackpots.. THAD COCHRAN and Farm Animals (Icymi)

OUT of TOUCH and CLUELESS

Speaking of contemptuous and condescending establishment mindset: what would a post be like without this charming Rino’s insights these days?

Press Conference: We Found A Lot! This Is Much Bigger Than MS

By Isabel Matos

Video by David: McDaniel addresses national and local media on the current status of the Mississippi Senate primary run-off.  The campaign is represented by Mississippi Senator Michael Watson and McDaniel lead attorney, Mitch Tyner.

(My transcribed notes) Mississippi Senator Michael Watson: We cannot challenge the election yet without a FULL examination of election materials

  • Chris has gone to all 82 counties in Mississippi to look at the process to base the challenge on evidence found.
  • They have combed through roughly 400, 000 votes from June 24th and
  • They have combed through another 100,000 votes from June 3rd. They were given 12 days to do it but it can’t be rightfully done when the Secretary of State stands in your way.
  • They’ve had to go to courts to ask for relief.
  • Yesterday was a huge win in Jackson county but they still having a 12 – day window. The judge said there was no thanks needed, he was just following the law.

Senator Watson said that THIS IS MUCH BIGGER THAN CHRIS MCDANIEL. Accusations of illegality are disappointing and they do have deal with those before proceeding with legal action.

  • Issue of Race-Baiting
  • Not being granted access to the poll books. Must find funds to do so. The process is set up to be uncovered.

************

Attorney Mitch Tyner: Hurdles have been placed in front of the team – the Media should be aware how unfair that is. That’s wrong and they have gone to the Supreme Court to Rule to say “The candidate has an unfettered right to see all the materials of that race. This affects every voter of Mississippi. This is bigger than Mississippi.” Tens of thousands of pages have been produced. Thanks to almost sixteen clerks who opened their ballot boxes and gave them unfettered access to the poll books.

Tyner thanked clerks who made sure there was a deputy there and they were able to open ballot boxes with unfettered access. He went on to the:

Million Dollar Question: What did we Find? 

    • Votes are being bought
    • Ballot boxes have been stuffed
    • False Affidavit ballots
    • Invalid Affidavit Ballots
    • Invalid Absentee Ballots

He said he has heard this all his life and they are committed to finding it rooting it out and stopping it. Thank goodness Senator Michael Watson has seen this up close and can do something about in the next legislative session.  He said that the third lawyer, Steve Thorton who wasn’t present, was currently reviewing material, but of the four motions that had been heard, Michael Watson was on the side of right after making the arguments on all  four of them. In every single case, the judge said yes, you’re entitled to review the materials, all but one.

They are waiting for the Supreme Court to rule against the only one who imposed a cost on the candidate. The issue we want to make sure is that it doesn’t matter how much money you have, you still get to look at the poll votes.

“That’s the issue that we want to make sure that the Supreme Court rules on: that it doesn’t matter how much money you have, you still get to look at the poll books,” Tyner said.

Categories of information they encountered:

    • Crossover votes
    • Illegal Votes
    • Absentee Problems
    • Votes that were cast into the boxes to see how many people signed in to the votes cast

Problem after problem was found. They will put it into a packet and give the media, the U.S. Attorney, the FEC and the Mississippi Attorney General.

When the campaign files its challenge, it will publish all the evidence for the public to see. “We’re going to put it all together in a complete package,” Tyner said. “I was really hoping we’d have it today. Monday, a week ago, I was sure we would. But I wasn’t sure we were going to run into this many problems. We’re going to get that together and at the same time we file a challenge, we’re going to give you a complete copy of it.”

He praised Chris for not throwing in the towel. Chris said “I want to root out the problems. I want integrity in the Process. If it root outs my political career so be it.” Pete Perry was called out during the Q & A that followed (27:00)

One of the things I admire most about Senator Chris McDaniel is that he is keeping the fire burning. His updates not only help us keep our spirits high they restore confidence in our elected officials. He is still a state senator and he could have chosen the path of less resistance but he is fighting for the integrity of the process. It’s not as easy as he has made it look. There has been a lot of pressure for him to not pursue this but he remains focused but he is staying close to supporters who are following this with great interest and is keeping his word. We cannot ask for more but he still needs support for his legal defense.  The challenge will be filed within 10 days.

Video: McDaniel Campaign Announces Challenge to MS Election, Predicts Victory

Mitch Tyner

Mitch Tyner, lead counsel for the Chris McDaniel campaign

By Gary P Jackson

In a press conference on Monday, Mitch Tyner, lead counsel for the McDaniel campaign, announced their intentions to challenge the outcome of the June 24 run-off election against 6 term incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, who McDaniel defeated on June 3, but did not meet the required 50% +1 thresh-hold, setting the stage for the run-off, and all of the race baiting, illegal vote buying, and more by the Cochran campaign.

Video courtesy iizthatiiz

Tyner is confident they will find enough votes to surpass the amount Cochran won the election by. We’re hearing they have already identified over 5000, with more counties to canvas, and all of the absentee votes to check. An election adviser in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, told UK’s MailOnline, [the law] wouldn’t require McDaniel to find 6,700 fraudulent votes cast for his opponent. Any 6,700 ineligible votes would suffice.

Most of them,” he said, “are going to be absentee ballots. It’s too easy to scam, and nobody ever checks unless the margin is this close or the result this unexpected.

As we reported last week, democrat officials in Hinds County alleged that County Republican Party chairman, and Cochran sycophant Pete Perry not only sought to stop the traditional swapping of voter rolls, to facilitate voter fraud, by making it impossible to check for illegal double voting, but also tampered with absentee ballots. Claude McInnis,the Hinds County Democrats’ top official, alleged Perry approached him and outright asked the democrat party to help facilitate voter fraud by withholding those voter books for inspection during the run-off election.

Tyner and others also note that, under Mississippi law, it’s not necessary to find enough irregularities to overturn the election results, but simply find enough to call the integrity of the election into account. If the 5000 plus number holds true, one would think that thresh-hold has been more than met.

Tyner says the remedy the McDaniel campaign seeks is a brand new election.

It’s interesting that while most county clerks were open and honest, others have resisted the McDaniel campaign’s attempt to check ballots.

Tyner cited a Mississippi Supreme Court ruling: Sartin v. Barlow [1944] which says: “It’s not only a candidate’s right to get into that ballot box, but it’s a candidate’s responsibility.“. Tyner passed out copies of the ruling to local media. We’ve searched online and haven’t found it to share with readers.

We’re no legal scholars here, but it seems Mississippi law, while sometimes vague, is at the same time pretty clear.

We don’t expect the Republican Party to overturn the election, or call for a new one, on it’s own. We fully expect for this to end up in the courts.

For his part, Cochran has taken to social media, and denies any wrong doing whatsoever, despite mounting evidence.

If Thad Cochran were a good and decent man, he would, if a successful challenge to the election is met, concede defeat to McDaniel, and spare the good people of Mississippi, and America a THIRD election. With all of the bad blood among Mississippians, I don’t see how Cochran has a pathway to victory in November. Before all of the shenanigans from the Cochran campaign, polling showed McDaniel would have defeated the democrat party nominee rather handily. It’s unclear how all of this has effected that predicted outcome.

Corrupt Mississippi Republican Party Certifies Thad Cochran Winner, The Legal Challenge Clock Starts NOW

Thad-Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran in his best Nixonian “I am not a crook” pose!

By Gary P Jackson

As expected, the Mississippi Republican Party has certified Thad Cochran the winner in the June 24 run-off election against Chris McDaniel.

From the Sun Herald:

The Mississippi Republican Party says U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran won the state’s Republican primary runoff over challenger Chris McDaniel by 7,667 votes.

The party sent results to the Secretary of State on Monday, the legal deadline.

The GOP’s numbers showed Cochran winning by more than the 6,800 votes counted by The Associated Press after the June election. Tallies change as county parties examine provisional ballots and finalize results.

This is part of the legal process and must happen before the McDaniel campaign can legally challenge the outcome of the election, something they have promised to do vigorously.

The way this works, the McDaniel campaign will file a challenge with the state Republican Party, which is expected to happen within a few days, and them ten days later, will file lawsuit in the Mississippi courts.

CONFIRMED: Former GOP Governor Haley Barbour Behind Racist Anti-Tea Party Pro-Cochran Ads

Boss Hogg

By Gary P Jackson

It’s not like we didn’t already know this, but now there is proof Haley “Boss Hogg” Barbour, the former Mississippi Governor, K-Street Lobbyist, and former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, is the one behind those racist attack ads on Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party.

From Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit:

FOX News reporter Ainsley Earhardt broke the news tonight on Hannity that that the racist, anti-Tea Party pro-Cochran ads that played on black radio stations in Mississippi were paid for by former Republican governor Haley Barbour’s super-PAC.

Haley Barbour‘s PACCitizens for Progress” reportedly paid at least one radio station to run the racist ads.

Three radio ads were played on a predominantly black radio station.
Paid for by Republicans to attack Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party.

Haley Barbour‘s group also paid for the racist robocalls in Mississippi urging Democrats to vote for Cochran.

This is some of the greasiest, dirt ball politics I have ever seen in my life. Haley Barbour and his fellow Republicans are some of the most despicable human beings that ever breathed. These are top leaders in the Republican Party. A party that is rotten to it’s very core.

I have a feeling the Republican Party will never be the same after this. I don’t think any political party in history has seen fit to attack it’s own voting base. I don’t see how the Republican Party survives much longer, without voters.

Uh oh,Cochran Campaign Manager, Staffer Busted in Illegal Vote Buying Operation

fielder-

A Black Democrat reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.

By Gary P Jackson

The stories coming out of the now obviously stolen election in Mississippi just keep getting worse. There were allegedly as many as 10,000 envelopes, with $15 in each one, given to this one pastor, who was also promised $16,000 for his work. It’s alleged that pastors of black churches all over the state of Mississippi were given this same deal to get out votes for Thad Cochran. This is, of course, highly illegal.

All Americans need to thank Charles C Johnson for his incredible work on this important story. Here’s an exclusive from Johnson and Joel S. Gilbert at Got News:

[emphasis mine]

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi.

Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offer money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist. “They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash and punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)) Voter fraud schemes are not unusual for Mississippi. In 1999 Mississippi’s attorney general reported massive voter fraud allegations throughout the Palmetto state. In 2011, a Mississippi NAACP leader was sent to prison for voter fraud, according to the Daily Caller.

This is a lengthy interview with Reverend Stevie Fielder:

I have to admit, listening to this man, tears came into my eyes. This truly breaks my heart. The evil it took for Cochran’s campaign to take advantage of people who are obviously poor and not well educated is off the charts.

I want to be angry at Reverend Fielder, but I’m not. I’m grateful he came forward. I AM truly angry at the Cochran campaign, and every single Republican who supports this despicable excuse for a human being, Thad Cochran.

It would seem that laws were broken here, too. At the direction of the Cochran campaign, Reverend Fielder went “door to door, different places, mostly impoverished neighborhoods, to the housing authorities and stuff like that,” telling fellow blacks that McDaniel was a racist and promising them $15 per vote. “They sold me on the fact that he was a racist and that the right thing to do was to keep him out of office,” Fielder says.

Text messages released to Got News and a recorded interview with Reverend Fielder confirmed that Saleem Baird, a staffer with the Cochran campaign and current legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, and Cochran campaign manager, Kirk Sims, were involved in a $15 per vote cash bribery scheme to target members of the black community.

They said they needed black votes,” said the Reverend Fielder on the phone. He says Baird told him to put “give the fifteen dollars in each envelope to people as they go in and vote. You know, not right outside of the polling place but he would actually recruit people with the $15 dollars and they would go in and vote. Fielder said he received thousands of dollars in envelopes from Baird and distributed them accordingly. Fielder also says he went to the campaign office on another occasion to pick up $300 in cash and was among a room full of people who were doing the same thing he was.

Fielder said that Saleem Baird was doing the same thing with people all over the state. Fielder believes that the racism charge against McDaniel and the promise of $15 a vote motivated ‘thousands‘ of black Democrats like him to vote for Cochran in the runoff. When asked if Fielder would have been more suspicious of Baird’s promises had he been white, Fielder replied, “Yes, definitely.”

For his efforts, Fielder says the Cochran campaign and Baird promised him $16,000 for paying black voters $15 a vote, but Baird wound up stiffing him. Baird even asked him to delete all texts between the two of them. In addition to Baird, Fielder says he spoke with Kirk Sims, the Cochran campaign manager, and a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign, most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran. All refused to pay him the agreed upon amount of $16,000.

Baird realized he had been lied to when he “took a good look at the campaign ads” and realized “McDaniel was not a racist…me and other people were misguided and misled.

Fielder confronted Saleem the weekend before the election and asked about whether or not McDaniel was actually a racist and Baird confirmed it. Baird ‘personally confirmed that McDaniel was a racist.” Baird ‘manipulated me to manipulate many other people,” says Fielder. Baird did not disclose that he worked as a paid legislative staffer for Senator Roger Wicker. Fielder also says he spoke with campaign manager Kirk Sims about getting paid and about the ethnical complaints he had.

Fielder is a Democrat but said he has voted for Republicans in the past. And though Fielder is being paid for his story by Got News, he says he’d come forward anyways. ‘I thought what I did was wrong.’ Fielder said he was motivated mostly by concerns that McDaniels was a racist, not money.
As to what should happen next, definitely the election should not be allowed to stand,” says Fielder, who says he’ll support McDaniel in event of a special election. ‘He’s been done wrong. He’s not what they said that he is.

Saleem Baird, who is a legislative staffer with U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, and the the Cochran operative sent out to do all of this, has been in trouble with the law before, having been arrested for running an illegal strip joint in Jackson, Mississippi. According to Politico he was allowed to keep his job with Senator Wicker, someone who obviously needs to be investigated, and primaried in his next election! Everyone needs to remember the name Senator Roger Wicker, for sure!

Got News has the texts between Team Cochran and Reverend Fielder, and much more information here.

I was going to write a longer commentary about democrats, black churches, and how the democrat party teamed up with the KKK to push the so-called “separation of church and state” starting in the 1860s, after the Civil War, and culminating in 1947 after democrat and Klan member Justice Hugo Black “found” a “separation” while deciding a school funding issue with Catholic schools. The KKK has generally hated the Church of Rome as much as minorities.

I mention this because as much as godless soulless democrats [remember, these people booed God on live TV at President Obama’s 2012 national convention] want God out of politics and the public square, they run over each other to find the nearest black church come election season. Hillary Clinton’s disgustingly racist”Rastus” accent is still fresh in our minds.

The hypocrisy of democrats knows no bounds.

Thad Cochran and his thugs used every single trick out of the democrat party playbook, including accusing Chris McDaniel of being racist. As much as I hate these vile, despicable Republicans though, we must remember they wouldn’t have been able to get away with this illegal vote buying, had not the democrats been doing this in black churches for decades.

Folks, we need MASSIVE reform to our way of conducting elections. But for now, we must seek justice in Mississippi.

Don’t let people tell you all of this doesn’t matter, or to just get over it and move on. This is a battle that must be fought until we win. America depends on it!

Mississippi Democrat Party Chairman: “Highly Conceivable” McDaniel Finds Enough Irregularities to Demand New Election

MississippiVoteFraud1

Mississippi_voter_fraud

America as we know it ends” [if voter fraud is allowed to determine election outcomes]

~ Catherine Engelbrecht, head of True the Vote

By Gary P Jackson

Within an article by Matthew Boyle at Breitbart is buried some very interesting quotes by democrat party leaders, who know exactly what went on in the June 24 run-off election in Mississippi.

Claude McInnis–the election coordinator for the Hinds County Democratic Party Executive Committee–estimated that after their review, McDaniel’s team will find about 3,000 total Democrats who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and again in the GOP runoff on June 24 in his county.

“I’m going to guess 3,000,” McInnis said in a phone interview with Breitbart News. “It may be more, but I only have access to the Democratic votes, so that’s what I’m guessing the difference may be.”

Statewide, state Democratic Chairman Rickey Cole told Breitbart News, “It is very conceivable–it is highly conceivable” that McDaniel and his team “will find a number of irregularities that will reach 6,700 or greater.

You can’t predict these kinds of things,” Cole said when asked if he thinks a challenge from McDaniel would be successful, but “if I were in a race this close, I’d be doing the same thing.

Cole said if McDaniel finds at least 6,700 Democrats who voted in the Democrat primary three weeks ago and the GOP runoff on Tuesday, a Mississippi court could actually demand a new election.

You don’t have to prove who they voted for,” Cole said. “You just have to prove there were that many ineligible ballots. That puts the intent of the voting public in doubt, and that’s the path by which a court would order a new election.

Besides any Democrats who voted in both the June 3 Democratic primary and the June 24 Republican runoff, McDaniel’s campaign is also reviewing absentee ballots.

According to data compiled by GOP operative Phillips, there was a significant spike in absentee ballots for the runoff over the primary. Between both the Democratic and Republican primaries on June 3, there were a total of 18,036 absentee ballots cast. In the runoff on June 24–between the statewide GOP runoff and the low-profile third congressional district Democrat runoff–there were 19,144 absentee ballots cast.

Speaking to the increase in absentee ballots, Catherine Engelbrecht, head of True the Vote added:

When you look at what causes voting behaviors to radically change, in the absence of a demographic shift, in the absence of any single point of departure, in three weeks what could cause such a shift?” Engelbrecht asked.

Here’s the things that we know: We know that mail-in absentee ballots were not subject to Mississippi’s new voter identification regulations,” Engelbrecht stated, adding:

We know that, historically speaking, in the last several years, there have been numerous people jailed for absentee ballot harvesting and falsification of identities using absentee ballots. And we know of the Breitbart News video showing that absentees were again being harvested in the runoff and primary. I would go so far as to say when I tried to go and look at the absentee ballot applications this past week at two separate courthouses, I was not allowed to look at them.

Right now,” Engelbrecht says, “election officials and state GOP officials are not being forthcoming with absentee ballot applications. Her group has publicly called on Mississippi GOP Chairman Joe Nosef to refrain from certifying Tuesday’s runoff election until all the absentee ballots and applications are verified.” Nosef hasn’t responded to a request from Breitbart News about whether he’ll comply with the request to verify those votes before certifying the election. He also has not responded to a request about a call from McDaniel to intervene and order state party officials across Mississippi to cooperate with McDaniel’s allies who seek to verify the election’s outcome.

A 2006 study by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, which interviewed several left of center, right of center, and nonpartisan election integrity experts nationwide, found that the absentee ballot process “is subject to the greatest proportion of fraudulent acts” over any other part of the election process in America.

Engelbrecht points to Mississippi law, which has fairly strict absentee ballot eligibility rules, as a reason why many of the absentee ballots could be thrown out, and she notes there’s plenty of other reasons why they could be discarded upon further review.

There are so many pieces that would potentially invalidate many of these absentee ballots, for instance, if the application is not properly filled out, if the notary is not a proper and duly designated notary–which we’ve seen historically happen in Mississippi as it relates to absentee ballot harvesting,” Engelbrecht said. “Did they have somebody witness it? Did the signatures inside and outside the ballot envelopes match? All of these things need to be checked, and in a race this close, every vote matters.” She then asserted, “You don’t need a whole lot of election fraud; you just need a little bit in the right places to swing an election.”

I want to remind readers, it’s illegal to vote in both democrat and Republican primaries, for the same election. In other words, anyone who voted in the June 3 democrat party primary, could not, by law, vote in the June 24 GOP run-off election, which, of course, was to decide the winner of the GOP primary. It goes without saying a significant number of democrats voted illegally on June 24.

The evidence is going to take McDaniel and his allies some time to compile, as nothing in Mississippi is handled electronically; it’s all done by handwritten paperwork.

Mississippi has seen new elections called before; a judge called for one in the Hattiesburg mayoral race just last year, after similar actions to what McDaniel’s campaign is alleging occurred there. But for a U.S. Senate primary–and most likely a U.S. Senate seat, as the Republican nominee is expected to win in November–a judge ordering a new election because of widespread voter fraud would cause a political firestorm.
