Media Silent on Allegations that
Cochran Campaign Engaged
in Cash-For-Votes Scheme

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/2/2014 1:58:20 PM

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran´s campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff. But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story. The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine. On July 1, the magazine explained what the penalties might be if Fielder´s allegations prove true. "If true," Forbes wrote, "such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1;

Comments:
The media along with the Republican Establishment can wish this travesty away, but it is not going to go away, nor is it going away unanswered.

The Republican Establishment holds the answer to party unity, but their idea is to just demanding it from the people they have smeared the reputations of. This is no where near the right answer.

Got Revolution?

Remember Mississippi!

True To Vote emailed one of their followers that 4,000 Irregular/Illegal crossover votes have been found and they have hit the Delta Area or looked at the absentee ballots.

Absentee ballots were in greater number for the runoff than for the primary.......wonder what those results will show when examined.

This is so disgusting and is obviously aginst the law. The hubris of establishment Republicans is breathtaking. Vote buying? Really? The media is totally ignoring this but I am not surprised. There is a war in this country against conservative thought and Democrats, Republicans and the media are fully engaged. This debacle in Mississippi, however, is the worst example of political chicanery I have ever witnessed. It doesn´t get worse than vote buying and those horrific racist ads.

#2. It is the worst because it is the only one being covered by anyone. It has been going on in all 50 states for a long time. The only difference is now we have the internet. People all over can follow along and communicate with each other. Lies get called out, facts trump lies.

I am not worrying about the media and I am not worrying about Cochran (he´s going to lose)....but what I AM going to do is make it clear to my Republican Party that IF they do not limit primary voting to Registered Republicans, then I am joining a third party.

Anyone else feel that this is essential ? It IS !!! Absolutely ridiclous to let Democrats swing the primary voting. Stupid. I don´t need any more stupid people to represent me.

There is absolutely NO sensible reason for crossover voting in a primary race. Why should you allow voters from the opposing party to help pick your candidate? Utterly stupid. And I never heard of Republican voters voting in a Dem. primary in any significant numbers to make any difference. This practice must be stopped!

The bamboozle curtain shielding we the citizens from the truth is beginning to slide open: Most of us have lived under the illusion, the republicans are spineless, cowardly wimps, cowering in the shadows from the onslaughts coming from democrats, and their media minions. Now, that doesn´t seem to be the case.

It appears more likely the republicans (from a point dating further back than Senator Trent Lott´s sharing of his leadership role with the democrats), are participating members of a secret cabal, which includes themselves, democrats, and the MSM, to form an onerous ruling class over a once free American citizenry.

#7, many states have no party registration. Texas doesn´t. But, when I vote in a Texas GOP primary, my registration card is stamped. I cannot then vote in a Dem runoff. I don´t see anything wrong with that process.

Maybe because " Reverend " Fielder
turns out to be a known scam artist ?
Not employed at the church where he claimed to be an Associate Pastor...because he´s not a real pastor.
Just someone who calls himself a pastor.
And the Cochran campaign explained how they pay their GOTV volunteers.
This was a GOTV activity , not voting .
Fielder only got $300 for driving volunteers ,
after that he quit.
Oh and he was arrested and charged with fraud in 2006 for some home remodeling scam.
The guy is just not credible .
The whole thing just doesn´t pass the smell test.

agree with #11 and state once more that
limiting a voters right to choose a party or how to cast a legal ballot is a violation of voting laws.
Anyone caught voting illegally should be fined.
If the votes exceed the eligible voting population the party with the excess votes should automatically be nullified and declared losers.

At yesterday’s tan suit presser, President Obama said a whole lot of nothing. After informing our ISIS enemies that he has no idea what he’s going to do about them - if anything - he turned his attention to Russia. It’s should be obvious to every clear-thinking man, woman, and child that, if over a thousand troops, tanks, and paratroopers drop into a foreign nation, it’s being invaded. Unfortunately, it seems that it’s not obvious to Barack Obama. ...Because the word “invasion” has magically disappeared from his vocabulary.

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

A shattering new study by two political science professors has found that ordinary Americans have virtually no impact whatsoever on the making of national policy in our country. The analysts found that rich individuals and business-controlled interest groups largely shape policy outcomes in the United States. This study should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government.

Roger Clegg and Hans A. von Spakovsky deserve high praise for debunking the latest GOP brainchild that does nothing to help the party nationally — a Senate resolution encouraging all private-sector employers to adopt the National Football League’s “Rooney Rule” — and illustrating that “conservative” Republicans, too, can be limousine liberals. Five GOP senators — including presidential hopefuls Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Rob Portman — think both commercial and nonprofit enterprises should, per the NFL and Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L.

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. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

Harry Enten, an analyst with FiveThirtyEight, a political website owned by ESPN, claims he can prove with charts and graphs that Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist are the most unpopular pair to face each other in a governor’s race for at least the last decade. Without even consulting the charts and graphs, few Floridians outside of Scott’s or Crist’s camp would argue with Enten. Both candidates’ favorable/unfavorable ratings are below water. Scott’s ratings have been in the unfavorable range for almost the entire three-years-plus he has been governor. He has mostly done what he ran

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

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
