Baptist Pastor Charges Thad Cochran
Campaign With Illegally Paying For Black
Votes In His Mississippi Primary Win

Forbes, by Rick Ungar

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/1/2014 2:14:35 PM

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison

Comments:
Mr. Fielder seems to have been on the payroll of other Mississippi state Republicans prior to this instance as others in the blogsphere have uncovered.

If this is proven true its game over buh bye Thad with John McCain left looking like a skid mark on a three year old´s potty training pants.

Got Justice?

Remember Mississippi!

Even if McDaniel is declared the winner I am done with the Republican party. I will vote for House Republicans and Senate Dems.

The GOP is a very strong organization. Have yet to see the first politically connected defector. Would love to be wrong.

Doesn´t matter how many politically connected members of the republican establishment leave or don´t leave. If the voters cannot trust the party they will refuse to vote for their candidates. I somehow think some of the members of the republican establishment have forgotten how this election thing works.

Its your job to earn votes, not the job of voters to just give them to you.

If the texts are validated Cochran is in a world of hurt. I expect the lawyering up has already begun. The Reverend will be portrayed as a con artist out to make a fast buck.

Electioneering fraud is a felony. This doesn´t look so good for the Republican Party.

To help restore trust in our election process Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, McCain, Cochran, Haley Barbour, Cornyn and the rest of the RINO perps should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I have trouble finding the thing that upsets me the most:
1) That this is business as usual for ministers during elections.
2) That he doesn´t even know enough to hide his criminal role in buying votes.
3) That he is a Baptist (I´m a Baptist too).
4) That the GOP was involved in sabotaging another republican with these sleazy tactics, which have been used against us so many times.

#4 is the clear winner. This is proof positive that there is no difference at all between a RINO and a democrat. Never ever ever again will I give one dime to the GOP!

I hope there is clarification on Mr. Fielder´s charges as soon as possible. It is curious that Mr. Fielder now says he was "never paid" for the vote buying. If that is the case, whose money was used, or was any at all.

Look, I am only going to say this once. So listen up and spread the word far and wide. Lisa Murkowski won in Alaska with a write in campaign. Chris McDaniel can win with a write inn campaign too. The dirty sleazy tactics that got Thaddius the win by election theft can not and should not stand under any circumstances and a write in win for Chris will send a message to the pukes in the GOP Establishment that their days are numbered. We are taking back our once conservative country loving party one election at a time. You feel me!? Giterdone.

The difference between Alaska and Mississippi is Murkowski was and is part of the "in" crowd. The in crowd is trying to cut McDaniel out. So there is no way he would ever get enough write in votes to win. Unless there is a conservative Repub watching every count. Even then with electronic voting and absentee, I doubt that there will ever be any "legal" elections in the future.

#11 The full phone interview with a reporter is on Gateway Pundit. The campaign didn´t pay the reverend the $16,000 they had promised (which is why we are hearing about it); but they did give him cash in envelopes to pay $15 to each voter. The only regret he seems to have is that he helped them for free, and now apparently has discovered that McDaniel is not a racist after all.

# 11 - The Rev. Fielder was promised $16,000 and was NOT paid by the Cochran campaign as he was promised to be paid on the night of the election. Fielder got 100´s of envelops he said with $15 to hand out to black voters by Saleem Braid of the Cochran campaign.
He indicated in a later interview he was contacted and said he would get paid if he would delete all the text messages received but Fielder decided to first do the second interview before he went to Cochran´s campaign office.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

In a recent New York Times column, Paul Krugman made the assertion that “self-proclaimed libertarians deal with the problem of market failure both by pretending that it doesn’t happen and by imagining government as much worse than it really is.” But suppose we flip that around — substituting “muddle-headed progressives” for “self-proclaimed libertarians” and “government failure” for “market failure.” Compliments to Per Bylund, a research professor at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, for making the necessary adjustments in a blog post at Mises. org.

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

If the House makes any changes whatsoever to the immigration bill that blew up and died before Speaker John Boehner tried to bring it back to life—and then votes on those changes on Thursday evening or on Friday—it would be a violation of Boehner’s own 72-hour rule. “I proposed a 72-hour minimum time for members to read bills,” Boehner said as House minority leader on May 14, 2009. “I think it’s important that members do have a chance.” "Americans not only expect lawmakers to know what they’re voting on, they deserve to know what’s in these bills as well,” Boehner added on

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans.

There has been a lot said in recent years by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservatives about crony capitalism – or if you prefer, crony socialism, crony government, corporatism – or just plain cronyism. Whatever you call it, this conversation is increasingly vital as government grows and continues to pervert markets by picking winners and losers as a way to obtain wealth for powerful lawmakers and their fund-raisers and friends. This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!
