Skip to comments.Breaking: McDaniel Finds 8,300 Questionable Ballots – Plans Wednesday News Conference
Posted on 07/13/2014 10:18:46 AM PDT by blueyon
In June Senator Thad Cochran won the GOP primary runoff election over conservative challenger Chris McDaniel after 25,000-35,000 Democrats helped push him to victory. Cochran and the Republican establishment also were behind the racist anti-Tea Party ads that ran in Mississippi prior to the runoff election.
Thad Cochran won the election over Chris McDaniel by 6,880 votes in the June 24 runoff.

better keep looking, he’ll need 2-3 times that many to stand up to the Rat election-robbing machine
Bring it Mr. McD - we have to have someone fighting for us.
As a former Mississippian, I can assure you that they are few and far between.
People in MS must not might fraud if they think it benefits them. I didn’t know that until June 2014.
Choose the judge carefully. Some will look for any excuse to declare suspicious ballots legitimate.
My concern as well. I think the strictly illegal Dem and then GOP ballots will be hard to toss out. The rest? You can bet that bad signatures and such will not be so easily make the cut.
They need to find the 6700+ illegal votes cast by people who voted in the Dem primary. I'm not sure they are there yet based on this story. And I didn't see anything that tells me if they have finished the counting. Have they seen all the voting records?
So, Anne Coulter thinks McDaniel should give up and not to
pursue this challenge.
Unless Mr. McDaniel is absolutely certain he has the votes to prevail, Ms. Coulter has demonstrated pretty clearly in her opinion piece that history is not on the side of the challenger.
I think what I, and probably others on this site, hope is that McDaniel is able to produce irrefutable evidence of voter fraud or voting irregularities that will stand up in court and that no one can dismiss or explain away. If he is not able to do so, I think a lot of people at this point will abandon this effort and quickly. His support will suffer and he will be dragged through the mud forever over this - as will be, of course, the Tea Party that supported him. I’m beginning to get a little nervous at this point. The Cochran people are not backing down and are just as vocal that the number of questionable ballots are very few and not near the level McDaniel is claiming. There is going to be a clear winner and a clear loser. I so hope we are not being played.
“... You can bet that bad signatures and such will not be so easily make the cut....”
The corrupt GOPe’s attorneys are feverishly fighting the release (as required by law) of identification data (e.g., names) on the election material. One of the favorite voter fraud tactics of the DemocRATS (and now their junior partners the GOPe) is voter impersonation. Voter impersonation is simply sending folks into different precincts claiming to be a different person on the voter rolls (DemocRATS have lists of folks who are registered but do not routinely vote and they also get real-time information on registered voters who have not yet voted).
Such voter impersonation fraud is a “piece of cake” where there is no Voter ID laws. Voter ID laws simply make it a little more difficult to commit such fraud. In this day of personal computers, color printers, readily available suitable card stock, lamination material and software from the internet, false ID (with the “poseur’s” picture on each phony ID card) can be produced in minutes on short order and large quantities.
The weak point in the voter impersonation scheme is that matching signatures are almost impossible to achieve by amateurs. The voter(s) who were impersonated (for those actually still alive and in Mississippi) know that they didn’t vote and most would say so if contacted.
Voter ID required for voting beginning June 3, 2014 primary.

Ann-e has dyed her brain blonde.
Coulter still consults Bill Maher, obviously. She is a GOP-e rat. I thought she cared about the amnesty issue above all others. You are a fake, Ann! Just like your pal Peggy Noonan. Bob
McDaniel has a legal case to make based on the law in MS, not some sore loser grudge campaign going as the GOPe alleges.....
“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.”
Words describing ballots as “questionable” and some voters as “ineligible to participate” seem weak to me, which is odd if laws were “unquestionably” broken.
Who’s Ann Colter, I think I remember some discredited opinion hack who said only Mitt Romney could beat Obama. Colter is a used elite inside the beltway hack who is out of touch and gravy training off a few good oneliners.
Me too. I agree with you.
“questionable” may refer to whether McDaniel or Cochran got the vote from that ballot. Once the number of questionable ballots exceeds the margin of victory, the outcome of the contest is questionable too.
ineligible to participate refers to those who appear to have voted in the Dem primary earlyer.
MS law forbids that.
ineligible to participate refers to those who appear to have voted in the Dem primary earlyer. MS law forbids that.
Yes, I know. The problem is that, at least at this point, it doesn’t sound like they have found enough of the inelgible votes to force a new runoff. To me that is a bit troubling. It would be nice if they didn’t need to count on any other category of problem ballots since they are likely to be contested.
McDaniel can’t prove the 8,300 DemocRats who crossed over illegally (after voting in the Dem primary) would necessarily have voted for him (McDaniel).
He can only show the votes are in question. There’s enough of them to go well over the margin of victory.
Therefore, the election itself is in question.
Therefore, the only available remedy is to order a new election.
But, yes. Now it’s up to the judicial system. Likely could go federal as there’s a disenfrancisement issue after the state remedies are exhausted.
The Judges in MS belong to the Barbour family. This election is over !
I agree. I don’t see how this is going to end up good for McDaniel regardless of outcome, and in fact, he’s slitting his throat for any future job in politics.
I’ve taken a lot of heat here by stating that he should have bitten his upper lip...swallowed hard and accepted defeat. By doing that he would show clearly to everyone that he’s the better man...and fight another day. Instead, he comes across as a sore loser.
Forget it. The other side won this time. Your chance will come again, but drop this nonesense about expecting to have a fair day in court in the State of MS.
I agree with what you’re saying, but a lot of people which to see us self destruct in a cause that will go no where.
Who’s to say that Cochran’s followers did rise up and vote for him during the runoff, when they stayed home intitally.
Secondly, he appealed to the black vote. Good for him! McDaniel should have too, but he didn’t.
Yes, I agree this time with what Ann C is saying. She gives pretty good history on this. McDaniel is looking like a sore loser.
I can here the key boards going crazy in response to the two of us.
What's important here is disemboweling the GOP-E when they resort to the treacherous things they did to us in Mississippi. It would be an even better message if we could get enough people on our side to vote for his opponent in the General Election, in order to deny them the seat, and perhaps the Senate majority.
I want Thad Cochran to lose more than I want anything else from this November election. That's where the GOP has put me after what they did in Mississippi. I would rather Harry Reid stay Majority Leader than have Thad Cochran win another term in the Senate. If they do what they did and enjoy tremendous, overwhelming success for doing it, you can bet they will do much worse to us EVERY time from now on.
However, I think we are all better off with a McDaniel with no future in politics, and the GOPe ridded of corrupt elements who see incumbency as the highest political virtue, than with a corrupt GOP with McDaniel as a future member.
Hi, long time no see.
I hope you and king Arthur are doing well.
Did you see the launch today?
I knew it was going (I believe it was 2 hours late) but missed it anyway :(
Hope you are well!
Over and over I have seen on Freerepublic the demand that politicians on our side fight rather than surrender close elections.
The “progressives” never let a close election go uncontested, it seems, and it never seems to hurt them.
This is all about “image”, claim those who want McDaniel not to fight.
Guess what. The other side controls to image machine, if we let them. We will always lose these close elections if we let the other side intimidate us by calling names. We are reaching a tipping point where the old media no longer has the resources to control the flow of information, and who is called what.
I say fight. If we win, it is a great victory. If we lose, we are not worse off than we were before. I do not see the downside that the naysayers here seem to.
