MS Good Ol’ Boy Justice and Chris McDaniel


Cochran Election Fraud MS

John R. Houk

© August 29, 2014

 

In my last blog post I wrote an update on Chris McDaniel’s challenge of the June 24 runoff GOP Primary in which McDaniel found 25,000 suspicious ballots and has evidence of 40,000 Dem Party voters that voted in both the Dem Primary and the GOP Primary which is specifically illegal under Mississippi state law.

 

It is becoming apparent that not only is the State of Mississippi political parties are dominated by each spectrum’s version of the Establishment, but even the judicial system is plagued with good ol’ boy authority thinking. The judge’s lame good ol’ boy ruling was McDaniel waited too long to challenge the voting results:

 

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – A Mississippi judge has dismissed a lawsuit that seeks to overturn Sen. Thad Cochran’s victory in a Republican primary runoff.

 

Judge Hollis McGehee said Friday that state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who lost to Cochran, failed to start the election challenge on time.

 

McDaniel is expected to appeal McGehee’s ruling to the Mississippi Supreme Court.

 

McGehee issued his ruling Friday in Gulfport, a day after hearing arguments in Laurel about the timing of McDaniel’s lawsuit. The judge agreed with Cochran attorneys. They cited a 1959 Mississippi Supreme Court ruling that said an election challenge must begin within 20 days of the election. McDaniel waited 41 days.

 

McDaniel’s lawsuit claims irregularities spoiled the June 24 runoff. It asks the judge to declare McDaniel the winner or order a new runoff.

 

McDaniel argued that the 20 day deadline was no longer the law. After McGehee’s ruling, McDaniel’s attorneys indicated that he most likely will take the weekend to decide whether to appeal the McGehee ruling to the Supreme Court.

 

McDaniel was defeated by six-term incumbent Cochran in the June 24 runoff by 7,667 votes out of the 392,197 cast statewide.

 

McDaniel claims that his campaign has found about 15,000 questionable ballots statewide. Cochran has disputed those claims, saying any irregularities were miniscule. (Bold Text is Blog Editor’s – Challenge Dismissed, Judge Says McDaniel Waited Too Long; By STEVE ROGERS; WCBI.com [local CBS affiliate]; 8/29/14)

 

According to this report McDaniel believes the 20 day deadline is not a law any longer in Mississippi. If McDaniel is correct the Judge’s decision is obviously one of those corrupt good ol’ boy decisions. The State GOP and the Mississippi judicial system put up all kinds of road blocks to stall the actual McDaniel filing. I have no doubt the ‘stalling’ was a deliberate ploy with this legal maneuver of the 20 day time limit as the back-up plan for a court challenge.

 

If the “15,000” questionable ballots is true, then McDaniel has amended his original accusation of 25,000 questionable ballots. Nonetheless 15,000 fraudulent ballots is still way more than the alleged 7,667 margin of victory the State of Mississippi has certified.

 

In a 2007 PDF on the justice.gov website here are the reasons and authority for Federal involvement in an election fraud case:

 

B. TYPES OF ELECTION CRIMES

 

1. Election Fraud

 

Election fraud usually involves corruption of one of three processes: the obtaining and marking of ballots, the counting and certification of election results, or the registration of voters.

 

 

C. FEDERAL JURISDICTION

 

The federal government asserts jurisdiction over an election offense to ensure that basic rights of United States citizenship, and a fundamental process of representative democracy, remain uncorrupted. …

 

 

Election crime cases tend to be long-term prosecutive projects focusing on individuals with different degrees of culpability. The ultimate goal is to move up the ladder of culpability to candidates, political operatives, public officials, and others who attempted to corrupt, or did corrupt, the public office involved.

 

Federal jurisdiction over election fraud is easily established in elections when a federal candidate is on the ballot. The mere listing of a federal candidate’s name on a ballot is sufficient under most of the federal statutes used to prosecute voter fraud to satisfy federal jurisdiction. This generally occurs in what are called “mixed” elections, when federal and nonfederal candidates are running simultaneously. In such cases, the federal interest is based on the presence of a federal candidate, whose election may be tainted, or appear tainted, by the fraud, a potential effect that Congress has the constitutional authority to regulate under Article I, Section 2, clause 1; Article I, Section 4, clause 1; Article II, Section 1, clause 2; and the Seventeenth Amendment.

 

In short, the absence of a federal candidate from the ballot can present federal law enforcement with special challenges in attaining federal jurisdiction over election crime. Those challenges can sometimes be met, provided the investigation focuses on identifying additional facts that are needed to invoke application of the federal criminal laws that potentially apply to both federal and nonfederal elections. These generally include election frauds that involve the necessary participation of public officers, notably election officials acting “under color of law,” voting by noncitizens, and fraudulently registering voters.

 

… (Bold Text Blog Editor – Federal Prosecution of Election Offenses, Seventh Edition; By Craig C. Donsanto and Nancy L. Simmons; Public Integrity Section, Criminal Division – justice.gov; May 2007; 326 pp.)

 

If McDaniel insists on a Federal criminal investigation for a United States Senate election Holder’s Justice Department is obligated to investigate. BUT we all know Holder hasn’t been too keen on enforcing the law pertaining to corruption and on matters of the Republican Party unless perhaps he sees an opportunity to embarrass Republicans.

 

Here is the email alert I received from the Tea Party Leadership Fund today posted below. In full disclosure and as is usual the case in an email alert there is an element of fund raising involved. It is up to you if you choose to support Conservative principles and/or the Tea Party Movement in general with these guys. There are pluses and minuses with all the Tea Party organizations which are generally autonomous of each other.

Pay offs? Bribes? Back-room deals? Steak dinners? Thad Cochran’s hoping you have forgotten how he sold-out to steal the Mississippi primary out from under the tea party hero Chris McDaniel.

NOW, the lawsuit to overturn Thad’s bought-and-paid-for June primary has been filed and DISMISSED!!!

**Now we MUST make sure Chris McDaniel has the resources he needs to take this to the Mississippi State Supreme Court.**

A word of thanks from Chris — “We’ve always appreciated the strong support of the all our friends in the Tea Party movement, including Tea Party Leadership Fund PAC which maxxed out to both our primary and run-off and now our legal defense fund, and helped raise more than $20,000 from its donors for this campaign.”

**Taking this to the Mississippi State Supreme Court to overturn the dismissal, and rightfully beating Cochran for a 3rd time will take your support. Will you chip in $5 or more? We MUST win Mississippi!**

But the truth is: the establishment cannot buy 40,000 illegal Democrat votes to win a Republican primary runoff and expect silence from the tea party about it.

Mississippi election law states, any voter who casts their primary ballot for a member of their party MAY NOT crossover and cast a vote in the other political party’s runoff election.

Thad Cochran’s hoping you forgot how:

 

 

1.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has abandoned its mission fighting Democrats AND they’ll spend more than $1 million in the next 6 days to protect its ‘obedient buddy’ Thad Cochran.

 

2.

Liberal money man Michael Bloomberg has helped raise a quick $2 Million for Cochran’s campaign efforts.

 

3.

Democrat spin-master, James Warren, worked for the Mississippi Conservatives PAC to forge its statewide plan to turn out votes for Cochran;

 

4.

The NRSC also blasted out emails accusing McDaniel of being a racist, a bigot, and a gaffe prone fool;

 

5.

The Mississippi Federation of College Republicans ousted its own executive director — Kolby Busby — when he voiced his support for McDaniel;

 

6.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee colluded with Cochran to blame McDaniel for photo-stalking Cochran’s wife.

 

And if that’s not enough, the smoking gun….

Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman, Rickey Cole is “willing to bet a steak dinner” more than one Democrat was scared into casting a second ineligible vote for Cochran.

After Dave Brat’s historic defeat of Republican Majority Leader and Obama collaborator Eric Cantor, the establishment Republicans and the Left have made no secret of their alliance to defeat you.

Mississippi, and the rest of the country MUST discover the truth about Thad Cochran, the establishment, and the Mississippi Primary election.

For Freedom,

Rusty Humphries

P.S. Will you chip in $5 or $25 or more to overturn the sham election and boost the Palin endorsed Chris McDaniel to victory?

Establishment GOP Aids Cochran to Steal Primary Runoff


Cochrane GOP Est - McDaniels TP Conservative

John R. Houk

© August 29, 2014

 

On June 24th 194,932 votes to McDaniel’s 187,265, 2014 Mississippi had its runoff election in the GOP Primary between incumbent Establishment Thad Cochran and Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel. McDaniel won the first Primary but with less than 50% of the vote causing the runoff. In that runoff McDaniel led in the count a substantial amount then astoundingly Cochran pulled ahead and won 194,932 votes to McDaniel’s 187,265. In other words Cochran won by 7667 votes. The thing is those winning votes came under an incredibly suspicious manner. Out of McDaniel’s own pocket he investigated the ballots he legally forced to make available.  After McDaniel’s investigation was complete he discovered this:

 

“…a Chris McDaniel news conference in Mississippi, 25,000 votes were cast illegally for GOP incumbent Senator Thad Cochran.”  (Bold Text Added – McDaniel: Declare me the winner; By Cameron Joseph; SlantRight 2.0 intro by John R. Houk; Originally The Hill; Hill post – 8/4/14, SlantRight 2.0 post – 8/5/14)

 

McDaniel presented his case to the Mississippi Republican Party and they WOULD NOT VIEW OR LISTEN TO THE EVIDENCE! The State GOP wanted McDaniel to pack it in and give up to the Establishment Republican incumbent Thad Cochran. Now that is Establishment corruption at its height. There is obvious illegal action involved on behalf of Cochran. My God! Some Federal Justice indictments must come to someone involved in this voter fraud. Unfortunately a criminal investigation to sniff how far the fraud went up the Cochran Campaign chain probably would take some time which would entail a continued certification of Cochran’s November 4th election day participation.

 

Ergo McDaniel cannot depend on the wheels of criminal justice especially with a corrupt Dem Party Attorney General in Eric Holder. McDaniel is stuck with the power of civil courts to nullify the fraudulent votes. The Judge that is not under the influence of the GOP Establishment should be able to do one of two things: either force another runoff election or nullify the 25000 fraudulent votes thereby giving McDaniel June 24 victory over Cochran.

 

A Matthew Burke report I found at TPPN shows McDaniel’s intended future actions which includes a few more factual tidbits you may not be aware of as yet.

EXCLUSIVE: Chris McDaniel: ‘People Need to See the Ugly Under Belly of Some Elements of the Republican Party’

 

By Matthew Burke

August 27, 2014

Tea Party News Network

 

Constitutional conservative Mississippi Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel told Tim Constantine on TPNN’s Capitol Hill Show on Wednesday, that Republican establishment-backed, 76-year-old Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign stole the recent runoff election in Mississippi, that he had proof, and hoped his current court challenge will not only overturn the election, but will allow people to see the “ugly, ugly under belly of some element of the Republican Party.”

McDaniel, who defeated Cochran, nicknamed the “King of Pork” in the prior Mississippi Senate primary, but failed to avoid a forced runoff vote because neither he nor Cochran passed the fifty percent threshold.

“They did steal the election, there’s no question about that,” McDaniel told Constantine. “They basically brought in 40,000-plus Democrats into a Republican primary. And that’s called Party Raiding,” he claimed.

McDaniel said that the Cochran campaign utilized “illegal votes” in the run-off election, and when his campaign presented the evidence to the Mississippi Republican Party’s executive committee, which is the process required, they refused to look at the evidence.

“Once we found the evidence, we attempted to take that evidence before the state Republican executive committee, which is what statue demands what we do,” McDaniel explained. “We took the information before the State Republican Executive Committee, and they refused to hear it, because it was too politically difficult, I’m assuming,” he charged.

McDaniel said there is a hearing coming up on Thursday on a motion to dismiss, which McDaniel thought his campaign would win, allowing the case to move forward. A full hearing on the merits of McDaniel’s case is scheduled for September 16.

Constantine made the point that even if one assumes that every Democrat who voted for Cochran in the Republican primary would eventually vote for him in the general election, law would have allowed those same Democrats to vote three weeks earlier in the Democrat Party’s primary. “Legally, you cannot do that,” Constantine said.

“We found about 15,000 total irregularities, many of which are also ineligible voters,” McDaniel contended. “On top of that, there are approximately 2,000 absentee votes which will probably be disqualified as well,” he predicted.

The Mississippi Republican Party has a long history of being a classic example of a corrupt “good ole boys” network, led by RINOs like former Governor and current lobbyist Haley Barbour, who many credit as being the mastermind (along with his son) behind Cochran’s dirty tricks and despicable smear campaign against Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party.

“We have already spent $200,000 on legal fees,” McDaniel revealed during the interview.

McDaniel issued a blistering condemnation to the Republican Party establishment and leadership, saying that if the problem of the election is not fixed, they have no business calling themselves the party of Ronald Reagan.

 

“I pray we’ll get justice. We need our chance to present our evidence. And the people of this country and this state need to finally see the ugly, ugly under belly of some elements of the Republican Party. And those elements, as bad as they’ve behaved, they have no business being the party of freedom or being Reagan’s conservative party.”

McDaniel: Declare me the winner

The Hill

 

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) demanded that the state Republican Party overturn Sen. Thad Cochran’s June primary victory and declare him the winner in a Monday press conference.

 

“They asked us to put up or shut up. Here we are. Here we are with the evidence,” McDaniel declared before yielding the podium to his lawyer, who said that the state party should overturn the election’s results because of allegations of crossover voting from Democrats, many of them African-American. Cochran won the June 24 runoff election by 7,667 votes.

 

“We anticipate that after they review the challenge that they’ll see that Chris McDaniel clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” said McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner. “Chris McDaniel clearly won the runoff by 25,000 votes. … We’re not asking for a new election. We’re simply asking that the Republican Party actually recognize the person who won the runoff election.”

 

Tyner brandished a binder which he claimed outlined all the voters the McDaniel campaign says did or may have broken the law by voting in the GOP primary runoff after earlier voting in the Democratic primary, arguing there were more than 15,000 votes that should be thrown out.

 

While McDaniel’s lawyer demanded a public hearing from the state Republican Executive Committee next Tuesday, he did not walk through what the actual violations were.

 

McDaniel also took a shot at Cochran’s campaign, accusing them of race-baiting in the primary. Cochran’s allies made explicit appeals to black Democrats to have them cross over in the primary.

 

“There is no place in the Republican Party for those that would race-bait,” he said.

A number of Republicans have accused McDaniel of race-baiting as well following his targeting of black crossover votes. McDaniel has been refusing for weeks to concede the race.

 

After the press conference, Cochran’s campaign said they had hired the firm of Butler Snow to represent them in the election contest, but said they remain confident in their outright victory and slammed McDaniel for continuing to drag out the contest.

 

“Like other Mississippians, we have watched with interest as the McDaniel campaign has made repeated and baseless allegations of fraud and misconduct against not only members of the Cochran campaign staff, but also Circuit Clerks and volunteer poll workers around the state,” said Cochran campaign attorney Mark Garriga.

 

“The filing of this challenge marks the point where this matter moves from an arena of press conferences and rhetoric into a setting where nothing matters but admissible evidence and the rule of law,” Garriga continued. “We look forward to holding the McDaniel campaign to the burden of proof that the law requires – and, we are dedicated to the defense of the votes of those Mississippians who voted on June 24 for Thad Cochran as their United States Senator, an election which has been as thoroughly reviewed and examined as any in modern Mississippi history.”

Ted Cruz Calls for Vote Fraud Probe


Voter Fraud MS - Cochran & McDaniel

Intro to ‘Ted Cruz Calls for Vote Fraud Probe’

Editor John R. Houk

July 9, 2014

 

Much of America might actually be unaware of the obvious voter fraud that took place in Mississippi in the GOP run-off election between incumbent Senator Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel (a local State Senator). Senator Cochran represents the Republican Establishment and McDaniel was highly supported by the Tea Party Movement. With what you have read so far, who do you think committed the vote fraud and who do you think was the victim?

 

DUH! McDaniel was the victim.

July 3rd, 2014 • Senator Chris McDaniel discussed the widespread accusations of election fraud in last week’s run-off primary against Senator Thad Cochran. McDaniel spoke with former Congressman Allen West as to the multiple allegations regarding illegal voting, vote buying, and corruption that occurred in the Mississippi election.

 

The Tea Party organization Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) sent one of those fund raising emails today. As usual I’ll leave the fund raising decision to you the reader. I am neither endorsing a donation nor telling you to be supportive of CCC. But also as usual CCC provides some very relevant info on the goings on of Dems, the GOP Establishment and the effect on the Tea Party Movement.

 

In this CCC email you will learn that McDaniel lawyers are very confident that a new run-off vote will take place between Cochran and McDaniel.

Ted Cruz Calls for Vote Fraud Probe

Great news, friends, as Ted Cruz calls for a voter fraud probe in Mississippi, where serious allegations have emerged that could result in a “redo” of the runoff election between the establishment’s Thad Cochran and Conservative Republican Chris McDaniel.

 

McClatchy article - T Cruz wants vote fraud probe... foto

 

McDaniel’s campaign has already found more 5,000 improper votes cast, and tens of thousands of more votes are now in question – far in excess of Thad Cochran’s margin of victory on the day of the runoff election.

Election attorneys employed by McDaniel campaigns have said that if they find additional improperly cast ballots than a redo of the runoff election is likely.  True The Vote and FreedomWorks have already filed suit regarding the election.

Lloyd Marcus, Chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee, issued a statement commenting on the conduct by the Cochran campaign:  “There are very serious allegations of voting irregularities and also possible illegal conduct in this runoff election.  The voters of Mississippi deserve a fair, clean and honest election – they deserve to have their votes count and their voices heard.

“And when there is a new runoff election ordered, I have words of advice to Thad Cochran’s campaign team:  don’t you ever again use the tactics of the Left and play the race card against conservatives like Chris McDaniel and the tea party movement.

“Conservative black activists such as myself, Dr. Ben Carson, Congressman Allen West, Kevin Jackson, Ambassador Alan Keyes, Niger Innis and countless others have worked for years to show how conservative principles of self-empowerment and liberty are the best prescription for not just the success of our nation, but for prosperity and success for minority communities.

“Thad Cochran’s campaign shamelessly undermined that effort by echoing the sentiments of the liberal media and leftist activists by labeling Chris McDaniel and the tea party movement as racist, hateful and harmful towards minorities – and that is a bald face lie,” Marcus concluded.

BOMBSHELL! Black Pastor: Thad Cochran Bought ‘Hundreds or Even Thousands’ of ‘Black Votes’


GOP Senator Thad Cochran

GOP Senator Thad Cochran

 

It is not uncommon for Dems to be involved in voter fraud. NOW it appears the Republican Establishment feels so threatened by the Tea Party Movement they are linking with Dems in voter fraud practices in Primary Runoff elections. Incumbent Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign made money available to Black-Americans through Churches in Mississippi to buy votes to beat Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel an incumbent State Senator. My fellow Conservatives, THAT IS ILLEGAL!

BOMBSHELL! Black Pastor: Thad Cochran Bought ‘Hundreds or Even Thousands’ of ‘Black Votes’

 

By Matthew Burke

July 1, 2014

Tea Party News Network

 

Republican establishment-backed Senator Thad Cochran has been accused of dirty tricks and unethical tactics in the Mississippi GOP Senate primary runoff on June 24, but the accusations have just leapfrogged from the unethical to the highly illegal, making the validity of the election results questionable.

 

“They [Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad,” said Reverend Stevie Fielder, a black pastor from the First Union Missionary Baptist Church, told Charles C. Johnson, in a shocking interview on Monday.

Fielder told Johnson (listen to interview below) that he brought “hundreds or even thousand” of blacks to the polls after being convinced by the Cochran campaign that Tea Party challenger, Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel, was a “racist.” Fielder says he was also offered $16,000 to by the Cochran campaign to pull off the vote buying scheme, but the campaign broke their promise and refused to pay him after he delivered the votes.

“They said they needed black votes,” Fielder said about the Cochran campaign’s scheme to buy Democrat votes in order to rig the election in his favor.

According to the report from Johnson on his Got News site, the vote buying scheme was implemented by Saleem Baird of the Cochran campaign, and Kirk Sims, a legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, Cochran’s junior colleague from Mississippi:

 

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 “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.

 

Reverend Fielder showed Johnson text messages from his cell phone, claiming they were from Baird, coordinating the money delivery in exchange for votes in favor of 76-year-old Thad Cochran, a 42-year Washington veteran.

Fielder told Johnson that Saleem Baird personally delivered the cash “from the campaign” to bribe the black voters.

According to the Cochran campaign, Cochran received 35,000 Democrat votes in the Republican runoff, but only 6,700 more votes than McDaniel overall, indicating that Democrats selected the GOP Senate nominee for the State of Mississippi.

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash. Such actions are 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.

“They sold me on the fact that he [Chris McDaniel} was a racist,” said Reverend Fielder, explaining that his motivation for cooperating in the scheme wasn’t the money, but was to keep a “racist” from being elected. Fielder admitted he had no information to indicate that McDaniel was a racist, other than the assurances he received from the Cochran campaign.

“I thought what I did was wrong,” Fielder said apologetically.

Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.

 

Reverend Stevie Fielder - Bribery Texts

 

Reverend Stevie Fielder

 

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 offered 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 “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.

 

Fielder said that Saleem Baird was doing the same thing with people all over the state. Fielder believes that the racism charge against McDaniel and theSaleem Baird text to Stevie Fielder 2 promise of $15 a vote motivated ‘thousands’ of black Democrats like him to vote for Cochran in the runoff. When asked if Fielder would have been more suspicious of Baird’s promises had he been white, Fielder replied, “Yes, definitely.”

 

For his efforts, Fielder says the Cochran campaign and Baird promised him $16,000 for paying black voters $15 a vote, but Baird wound up stiffing him. Baird even asked him to delete all texts between the two of them. In addition to Baird, Fielder says he spoke with Kirk Sims, the Cochran campaign manager, and a woman named “Amanda” with the campaign, most likely Amanda Shook, director of operations to re-elect Thad Cochran. All refused to pay him the agreed upon amount of $16,000.

 

Baird realized he had been lied to when he “took a good look at the campaign ads” and realized “McDaniel was not a racist…me and other people were misguided and misled.”

 

Fielder confronted Saleem the weekend before the election and asked about whether or not McDaniel was actually a racist and Baird confirmed it. Baird “personally confirmed that McDaniel was a racist.” Baird ‘manipulated me to manipulate many other people,” says Fielder. Baird did not disclose that he worked as a paid legislative staffer for Senator Roger Wicker. Fielder also says he spoke with campaign manager Kirk Sims about getting paid and about the ethical complaints he had.

Fielder is a Democrat but said he has voted for Republicans in the past. And though Fielder is being paid for his story by Got News, he says he’d come forward anyway. “I thought what I did was wrong.” Fielder said he was motivated mostly by concerns that McDaniel was a racist, not money.

 

As to what should happen next, ‘definitely the election should not be allowed to stand,” says Fielder, who says he’ll support McDaniel in event of a special election. ‘He’s been done wrong. He’s not what they said that he is.’

 

Got News tried calling both Baird and Sims with Fielder on the line. We got through to Sims but Sims insisted that there was a bad connection when Fielder asked about the racist smear campaign against Chris McDaniel and hung up. Were Baird found to have violated any laws in this matter, this would not be his first time he had a brush with the wrong side of the law. In 2011, Baird, who is a legislative staffer with U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, was allowed to keep his job with the senator after being arrested on charges of running an illegal strip joint in Jackson.

Fully aware that we have helped reveal the Cochran campaign may be involved in a criminal conspiracy, Got News will turn over any and all evidence to lawSaleem Baird text to Stevie Fielder 4 enforcement. Joel Gilbert produced the video of the phone call for Got News.
