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.

... "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.
And most importantly...
Quote:
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."
Much more. Listen to the entire audio, as well:

How do they determine who voted and who to pay the $15. Something seems fishy here but I will reserve judgement until it is investigated.

Yes. The FBI is aware of that. The article's author told them when he handed over all the vote fraud scheme evidence. The FBI pays informants, as well.

According to a recent article in The New Yorker, the FBI maintains more than 15,000 informants. These informants can collect evidence that government agents would need court orders to collect. The informants are often paid thousands of dollars — in some cases even hundreds of thousands of dollars — in retainers.

Yep. At the very least, people will go to jail for this. Won't be the first time that's happened in MS:

5 year prison sentence for a member of the NAACP's executive committee.

No one questions if voter fraud occurs. They question in dispute his how large of a problem is it. Around 5 years ago we had a high school baseball player die because of steroids. His famous dad pushed for random testing in the state of Texas for steroid abuse among high school athletes. The State of Texas spent 6 million dollars in random testing for 45 thousand athletes. 19 athletes out of 45 thousand tested positive. 6 million dollars is a hell of alot of money to prove 19 athletes were cheaters. I suspect the ratios would be the same regarding cheaters at election time.

This scoop is brought to you by, none other than the blogger who claims to have been fired by Brietbart. Supposedly, Breitbart hired him to disprove birther claims, to show that birthers are lying and Obama is eligible for presidency. But, he found that Obama was not eligible, thus the firing. Well, that makes a lot of sense doesn't it, lol. Oh, and he's offering a 2 thousand dollar reward for the picture of Cochran's wife (which the cops are probably holding as evidence). Those alleged photo's of voters to be paid off? I imagine they are just campaign canvassing lists. I'm not saying there was not some dodgy stuff going on, but I'm not believing this guy's evidence either.

Some people have critical thinking skills, thank goodness...

"Black Conservatives Fund calls on the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigations to investigate the claims of voter fraud, wire and mail fraud, and other illegal election activities that may have been committed by Senator Thad Cochran and his campaign aides Saleem Baird and Kirk Sims.

...Board member Anita MonCrief shares the dismay many black conservatives have voiced about the allegations, saying, “As black Americans, it is insulting to us all that in 2014, decades after the horrors of Jim Crow that the Cochran campaign would use black voters in such a manner. Anyone that thinks it's ok to lure black voters to the polls with money and the implied promise of government handouts does not deserve to be a servant of the people.”
