its 3 of 12 on one page. im wondering if they are going to go through all the vote rolls and check. im sure McDaniel is being offered something to just let it go.

Offered something? My guess is that there is not enough tea in China......

McDaniels is dug in!

Actually, a lot of people may have simply made a mistake. I didn't know Democrats could not vote in the Primary Runoff if they had voted in the Democratic Primary, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone.

McDaniels is Hard Right and believes what he says he believes. He just can't let it go that Cochran was nominated by Democrats. I don't think he'll ever prove it, though.

Anyone that voted Democrat in the Primary can not vote Republican in the Run Off. I worked the polls at one time.

There's no question that McDaniel supporters are combing through voter roll books with magnifying glasses and cameras. As I've said before, if Cochran won based on illegal votes then his victory should not stand.

But I still state that that picture proves nothing more than 3 votes in the entire runoff were illegal. One data point is NOT a trend. It's possible that all other roll book pages are just like this; that 75% of the votes are illegal. But I doubt it or the conservative media would have the proof splashed all over the internet by now. What's more likely is that the page in the picture is an aberration where a poll worker made a mistake.

I think its important to check them to satisfy these doubts. I don't know what to believe, there are news reports of officials not allowing the books to be checked. there is also something regarding switching poll books to ensure no double voting and that supposedly wasn't done. i don't really trust the overlords to ensure that this is done properly.

well, im not sure im the poster boy for fair and balanced. im a tea party guy and im very offended by the tactics used in this race. tea party challengers have lost against establishment politicians and we have moved on and supported the winner. however, this race was decided by democrats and while it may or may not have been illegal, republicans shouldnt be ok with that. its funny how some people see it as some game and all that matters is winning and if one side wins unfairly, we should just pat him on the back and say "you got me this time!" i dont see it as a game and i think the republican candidate should be chosen by republicans. so i intend on volunteering to make calls for childers if this things isnt overturned.
