McDaniel alleges 8,300 questionable ballots
Daily Journal [Northeast MS], by Bobby Harrison

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/13/2014 7:25:50 AM

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

Lots of talk but little backing up, at least so far.

Typical democrat maneuver, scam the system, let cheaters vote, claim victory, and whine incessantly when you are called on the cheating.

When is Cockran going to make it official and switch to the democrat party?

Here´s the problem. It doesn´t matter how many questionable ballots you find for the simple reason that you have no way to beyond a reasonable doubt, determine for whom that questionable ballot was cast. We may all "KNOW" that the vast majority of those questionable ballots went to Cochran, but you cant prove it. The absolute nest possible outcome would be a do-over election.....and we all know that that wont happen. And I´ve never heard of an election result being vacated.

Why don´t people (and posters) understand? McDaniel DOES NOT have to prove for whom someone voted! It´s a simple matter of record keeping: Now pay attention!
If a Dumbocrat voted in the primary, they MAY NOT vote in the run-off! Got it...it´s that simple. It´s not they may not vote for X or Y...they may not vote PERIOD! All that one has to do is show, or prove, that a Dumbocrat voted R in the primary. They now MAY NOT vote in the run-off!
EXAMPLE: If the recorded voter log shows that Aunt Jamima, a Dumbocrat, voted in the primary as a Republican and now a run-off occurs, Aunt Jamima, a registered Dumbo, MAY NOT vote in the Republican run-off! If said Aunt Jamina does vote in the run-off that is an invalid vote - whether it´s for McDaniels or GoofyNuts Cochran.

# 8 - Correction: "Example............"
If a Dem voted for the Dem in the primary they CANNOT by MS law vote in the Republican run-off. What part of ILLEGAL some do not understand is mind-boggling. Must be because MCDANIEL is a CONSERVATIVE. He´s getting the same type comments from the the RINO lovers like at directed at PALIN and CRUZ. Until some take the RINO sunglasses off they will never realize that the RINOs are of the same leanings as the DEMs. The two groups will be just as destructive to them as they will be to Conservatives. The RINOs let obama get his way from the beginning by playing nice with him.......from his first campaign when McCain´s advisers/consultants clamped down on Palin with their threats. And, it still hasn´t stopped.
The RINO lovers will be standing in the bread line with everybody else........but they still think they have the "insider" leverage and have their handouts ´home delivered´.

#8 and #10, you are correct. I think the difficulty for Mississippi authorities, however, is that Mr. McDaniel hasn´t yet produced those "8,300 questionable ballots", or any part of them. Perhaps he is prepared to do so on Wednesday at his press conference.

The longer the stupid GOPe allow this controversy to boil, the more likely they are to lose the MS Senate seat. Republicans who also happen to have one ounce of integrity will not vote for Cochran, he is a Democrat (and even goes to their luncheons accidentally on purpose- LOL). They need a mulligan, or Cochran needs to retire for ´health reasons´ or something. There is NO hope for Cochran, none, and the stupid party is doing what it does best, in one of the best election seasons for the GOP possible, they are gambling that the tide will wash in all the dregs, but as usual, the stupid party is snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

#5. There is no need to "prove" who the questionable votes went to.

The point is show the vote was tainted by enough irregularities to the throw the integrity of it into question.

I worked for McDaniel in 2 counties Monday they Wednesday last week

In Union County we we welcomed and given access to all the documents we were entitled to. So the review took 1 1/4 days.

In Tippah County we were prevented from reviewing the poll books while we had the ballot box opened. This prevented us from easily cross checking for illegal crossover votes made at the Polls or by Absentee Ballot.

Cochran is trying to run out the clock until the investigation by McDaniel must end.

The head of the Republican party says he thinks the review is a joke and any suite would be frivolous -- Why wouldn’t a person (can’t count him as a man as he has yet to show me that) responsible to all Republicans in Mississippi not want the election to be as clean as possible. Too much skin in the game for him?

The Oxford Dictionaries comes out each winter and give an award to the Word of the Year. Others expand the WoTY concept to include a phrase of the year. Lately, however, I’ve been finding that there’s something missing from this system of honorifics. We need some sort of Deleted Phrase of the Year, letting everyone know that a phrase has simply been beaten to death, jumped the shark and reached the end of the line. And the first phrase we need to do away with is, we need to have a national conversation. When Robin Williams took his own life, we

Kids report cramming so hard that they’re only getting two hours of sleep a night. They’re bionic hamsters.

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Biff Matthews is up to his eyeballs in knuckle busters.

WASHINGTON — Voters hate Washington, and they’ll get their chance to shake things up in November’s midterm elections. The big question is whether the Republicans can win control of the Senate while holding the House of Representatives, which would give them the entire Congress for the remaining two years of Barack Obama’s presidency and set the stage for the 2016 elections. At stake this fall are 36 of the Senate’s 100 seats, all 435 House seats and 36 governorships. Republicans start with a decided edge: – The most vulnerable Democrats are in states Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won two years ago; – Republicans are

WASHINGTON — A 16-year-old Bobby Kennedy, with all four front teeth chipped from playing football, was planning to head home from Milton Academy for the weekend. Writing before the Kennedy family experienced a series of tragic deaths, there was a fatalistic side to his thoughts. “I’m going home this weekend to see my brother Jack who is now going into PT boats,” Kennedy wrote to one of his friends, “so I’m getting out to see him because he might be killed any minute.” The letter is part of two separate batches of newly revealed correspondence — one series written by Robert F.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they
