Investigative reporters at GotNews uncovered claims of massive voter fraud in Mississippi in the Thad Cochran-Chris McDaniel primary election. Chris McDaniel who plans to contest the primary has not yet presented any proof of fraud.
A Democratic black reverend, Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church and a former public official, says he was paid by a black member of the Cochran campaign to buy hundreds or even thousands of black votes. The reverend was told that Cochran’s opponent, Chris McDaniel was a racist.
Reverend Fielder, he saved the text messages.
The reverend was told by campaign worker Saleem Baird that Cochran needed to get 10,000 votes to beat the alleged racist McDaniel. The reverend delivered hundreds of votes.
The campaign agreed to pay $15 a vote. The reverend went door-to-door telling the voters that McDaniel was a racist and they’d get paid.
The reverend received the money for the votes but the reverend was stiffed for the $16,000 he was supposed to get.
The campaign gave him $300 in cash separated into envelopes to pay 20 people on numerous occasions.
Baird asked the reverend to delete all texts between the two of them but he didn’t.
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.
Reverend Fielder did what he did to keep a racist out of office, he said, and the voters were happy to get the $15.
The reverend said this was going on throughout the state. He discovered the weekend before the election that McDaniel might not be a racist.
He said he wants to right a wrong.
It’s against 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)).
In addition, volunteers working for Chris McDaniel say they have already found 20 percent of invalid double-votes in one country alone – Hind County.
If there is enough doubt about the election, McDaniel can force another runoff.
If this is true, some people need to go to jail.
Mississippi has seen massive voter fraud before according to the Daily Caller.
