Black Democrat Pastor brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.
The Ruling Class is the Ruling Class – whether MarxoFascist Democrat or Republicrat, willing to do anything including breaking the law to hold onto power by any means possible. Apparently now this is now the standard operating procedure for the GOP Leadership to make sure the TEA Party doesn’t derail it’s ‘leadership’.
One wonders aloud if Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove and John Boehner had a hand in any of this? At minimum, I think it behooves us to learn: what did they know….. and when did they know it?
Cochran should be immediately removed from office, his ‘election’ invalidated and his person arrested on charges of voter fraud. Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Karl Rove should be served with warrants as Accessories to the Crime if this pans out which given some evidence – looks pretty incriminating.
But not surprising.
According to the work of Charles C. Johnson and Joel S. Gilbert, what we thought was just a racist campaign to get people out to vote in the Cochran vs McDaniel Mississippi Senate race was the tip of the iceberg. It now appears to be a vote buying scandal right out of the office of Thad Cochran himself.
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.”
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.
