Racism, lies and possibly illegal votes win the Mississippi runoff for Cochran

See also

Progressives on the far left have so feared the low tax and small government message of the citizen grass-roots TEA party movement that they have sought to smear the movement by branding it as racist, extremist and divisive. In the Mississippi primary runoff for the GOP nomination for senator, those on the left who supported Thad Cochran over TEA party-supported state senator Chris McDaniel repeated a false allegation that the TEA party didn't want African-Americans to be able to exercise their right to vote. This allegation was a lie they exploited to get African-American voters to vote for Cochran. There was no evidence anyone in the TEA party was invovled in any effort to suppress African-American voters, and on election day yesterday there was no reports of any such efforts or any suppression of African-American voters.

As seen above, they created a flyer which accused the TEA Party movement and Chris McDaniel of supporting such alleged effects to suppress African-American voters as well as other racial claims. The flyer smears McDaniel for being racist and supporting suppression on the basis that a comment was made about Democrats voting in the primary.

This claim was a blatant lie and a brazen act of disinformation designed to anger African-American voters in order to motivate them to vote for Thad Cochran. There was a very legitmate legal and electoral issue regarding Democrats voting. On June 3, both parties had primaries, so it would be expected that most Democrats would vote in their own primary to select their nominee for the senate seat while Republicans vote in the primary on the GOP side. But state law prohibits Democrats who voted in the original primary on June 3 by participating in the Democrat Party primary from crossing over, after voting Democrats on June 3, to voting in the Republican runoff on June 24. This law makes sense, otherwise voters can basically vote to select the nominees of both parties. McDaniel is reportedly challenging the primary runoff results in part based on this issue. While McDaniel lost the election by just more than 6000 votes, it is quite likely that more than 6000 Democrats, who had voted in the Democrat primary on June 3, crossed over and illegal voted in the Republican runoff yesterday.

Breitbart News is reporting that McDaniel will challenge the results of the primary runoff. Breitbart News is reporting today, “A source close to McDaniel told Breitbart News that he is considering legal challenges over ballots. Democrats who voted for Cochran on Tuesday but voted three weeks ago in the Democratic primary in the state were not allowed to vote in Tuesday’s election. Election results indicate Cochran's late appeal to Democratic voters paid off, with the incumbent senator picking up sizable vote totals in precincts with heavily black populations. Partisanship in Mississippi is largely polarized on racial lines, and Cochran allies paid key Democratic operatives to help turn out the vote.”

Breitbart reported a number of efforts that were designed to get African-American registered Democrat voters to cast ballots for Thad Cochran. Breitbart News reported, “Additionally, allegations flew that Cochran allies were using “walking around money” to incentivize Democrats to the polls.”

Even the head of the Democrats in the state agreed the Cochran campaign engaged in question activites in the runoff campaign. “Democratic Party chairman Rickey Cole, for instance, said Cochran operatives were paying people in the black community to donate to Cochran,” Breitbart News reported.
