An attorney for senate candidate Chris McDaniel gave a presser today to update on status:
In addition, new information has surfaced that links the National Republican Senatorial Campaign (NRSC) to illegal use of campaign financing to hide their fingerprints on the attack ads against McDaniel.
This explosive development links the main Republican Party apparatus to the underhanded dealings in Mississippi that led to widespread voter fraud.
(Via Clarion Ledger) Video of a controversial radio ad found its way online today.
The ad, which features Bishop Ronnie Crudup talking, is aimed at the black community and encourages black voters to oppose Chris McDaniel in the GOP primary runoff for U.S. Senate. The ad aired just before the June 24 runoff.
The real problem with the ad is that it is paid for by All Citizens for Mississippi, which is not registered with the Federal Elections Commission. You’ll recall this to be the same group I first reported about on June 1. They ran a full-page ad in the Mississippi Link, a newspaper aimed at black residents in Jackson and Hinds County. (link)
