Explosive Developments In Mississippi – Cochran Campaign Manager and Staffer Busted in Illegal “Vote Buying” Operation….

RedState.com shares a story, documentation, and audio tape from Mississippi which shows a black Mississippi preacher was promised $16,000 to deliver black democrats to the polls during the primary runoff election.

thad cochran - chris mcdanielMASSIVE AND WIDESPREAD FRAUD – In addition each voter was promised $15/vote to vote for Thad Cochran.  

Charles C Johnson is reporting from Mississippi.   

If this evidence holds up not only will Thad Cochran lose the election, but Thad Cochran might lose his senatorial seat as it exists right now.

[Via Charles C Johnson] … A Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi.

Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offer money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist.

“They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.”

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash and punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)) Voter fraud schemes are not unusual for Mississippi. In 1999 Mississippi’s attorney general reported massive voter fraud allegations throughout the Magnolia state. In 2011, a Mississippi NAACP leader was sent to prison for voter fraud, according to the Daily Caller.

It would seem that laws were broken here, too. At the direction of the Cochran campaign, Reverend Fielder went “door to door, different places, mostly impoverished neighborhoods, to the housing authorities and stuff like that,” telling fellow blacks that McDaniel was a racist and promising them $15 per vote. “They sold me on the fact that he was a racist and that the right thing to do was to keep him out of office,” Fielder says.

Text messages released to Got News and a recorded interview with Reverend Fielder confirmed that Saleem Baird, a staffer with the Cochran campaign and current legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, and Cochran campaign manager, Kirk Sims, were involved in a $15 per vote cash bribery scheme to target members of the black community.

“They said they needed black votes,” said the Reverend Fielder on the phone. He says Baird told him to put “give the fifteen dollars in each envelope to people as they go in and vote. You know, not right outside of the polling place but he would actually recruit people with the $15 dollars and they would go in and vote.” Fielder said he received thousands of dollars in envelopes from Baird and distributed them accordingly. Fielder also says he went to the campaign office on another occasion to pick up $300 in cash and was among a room full of people who were doing the same thing he was. (continue reading)

        Yep, that’s what I’m thinking. He seems to be talking all innocent and the like, as if believing McDaniel was a racist somehow made his part in it OK. NOT. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. And I’d venture to say he knew darn well he was doing illegal things. But his greed got the better go him and he cut if his nose to spite his face!

    The GOP man who committed suicide at the end of last week was linked to the tea party and the photographing of Mrs. Cochran in the nursing home. The common denominator in both stories is the Cochran campaign. The democrats dispersed money for votes to help the Cochran campaign. All bad things during a hotly contested election, but all things seem to happen to the same guy, Thad Cochran. I never expected things to go this far. The Grand Old Party is a mess.

    Make an example of this kind of corruption. Bring criminal charges and nullify Cochran’s win. It’s bad that these people voted merely about race but it is horrid that they thought it was okay to do so. And they call us racist. I don’t think we are circling the drain. I think we fell in already. Our ancestors would be so shocked at something like this. Dear God, forgive and help America.

    I dunno… something about this doesn’t quite smell right. This piece of “news” seems just a little too convenient, and a little too contrived.

    I followed the link for this story back to the “Got News” site and noticed that the article is credited to Charles C Johnson and Joel S Gilbert. Is this the same Joel S Gilbert who produced a mocumentory spoof claiming Elvis is still alive?

    I’m sorry, folks, but I think this 20 minute youtube video is a spoof… a scam…. and Joel Gilbert is have a good laugh at everyone’s expense.

      Charles Johnson is a writer who earns his bread and butter writing for conservative sites, and has a strong reputation as a solid researcher. I doubt he would destroy that hard-earned reputation for a “joke”. He launched “Got News” recently.

      “Charles Johnson is a first class in-depth researcher who turns up things that people don’t want known. He figured out how to do it while in college, got great results, and has perfected the process ever since. If you are a liberal with skeletons in your closet (a common thing) who is running for office and Charles Johnson gets onto your case you can rest assured that those skeletons won’t stay in the closet for long.”

      This reminds me more of the Giles-O’Keefe ACORN tapes and the Lila Rose Planned Parenthood videos. It is explosive because the wrong-doers didn’t think they were doing anything wrong – their criminal behavior was just another day at the office.

    So, conspiracies really do exist. What is strange is that a couple of thousand people were offered money to vote and those who set this in play never thought that at least one person would come forward with this illegality. This really strains common sense. These crooks must really feel safe given the overtness of this corruption.

      Why is it so surprising? Is it inconceivable that $15 is the going rate for walking around money for participating in elections? Just because those involved were asked to vote for Thad Cochran this time around doesn’t mean that the same scheme hasn’t been used frequently, for a long time, to vote for whomever.

      One other thing that I hope comes out of this, though I doubt it, is that the black community finally realizes how easy and cheap it is to manipulate them. If you are going to put your freedom at risk following such a stupid scheme, at least get paid a worthy sum.Seriously? You let the BGI and the Democrats put your freedom at risk for a mere $15.00? Do you realize how foolish this makes you look? Do you wonder why you get no respect?!? Agh!
