McDaniel: strike Tyner's vote. And the Mayor's, Chairman, even Beckwith.

The Chris McDaniel campaign submitted an affidavit of improper or irregular votes in Madison County to the Mississippi Republican Party and Thad Cochran campaign today.  The McDaniel campaign said last week that all Republican votes in Madison County from the June 24 runoff election should be rejected.  The McDaniel campaign argued in its election challenge:

Fraudulent voting, insecure ballot boxes and election records, and other violations of the Mississippi Election Code vitiated the integrity of the June 24 Republican Primary runoff election in Hinds County.  If the Hinds County results are included in the statewide results, they contaminate the entire runoff election.  They destroy the integrity of the runoff election and  make the will of qualified Republican electors impossible to determine.  For that reason alone, the Hinds County results must be excluded from the statewide results.

For other counties involved in permitting fraudulent voting, along with insecure ballot boxes and election records (like Claiborne, Coahoma, Madison, and Sunflower), the analysis is the same. 
 Thus the McDaniel campaign says all of the votes listed in the affidavits submitted today are irregular votes and thus should be rejected and are cause for rejection of all of Madison County's votes.  Here are some of the so-called irregular votes:

Byron De La Beckwith, Jr. (p.9) ballot not marked or rejected.  Never opened or counted. Yup, the Chris McDaniel campaign is trying to get Byron De La Beckwith, Jr.'s vote.

Marsha Thompson of WLBT (p.12): line was drawn down page through the vote box for June 3. Repeated on several pages.
John Taylor (p.13): Oh, just the CHAIRMAN OF THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!  "voted written in margin, voted written on June 24 in different handwriting. Wow.
Lucy Taylor: his wife. Same reason.
Mitch Tyner (p.17): McDaniel's own lawyer. "voted written in margin and on June 24"
Sloane Tyner: Mitch's wife. Same reason.
Gene McGee (p.22): Yes, the Mayor of Ridgeland.  "voted written in blue ink on June 3 and crossed out in red ink and initialed, voted absentee noted on June 24".

The McDaniel campaign and the associated Tea-Tards have now reached a whole new level of stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. As in stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid so dense that no intellect can escape - a singularity point of stupid. Perhaps he and his supporters are some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know.

It's the only explanation.

John Taylor donated thousands of dollars to the republician party and Thad only then to go bankrupt and stick it to alot of people. Great Chairman for the Republicans.

Let us give the McDaniel supporters their own county, say, one of the lesser used counties in Mississippi, or perhaps an abandoned amusement park.

Then provide them with a lifetime supply of handcuffs and let them take turns locking each other up.

It is obvious from the comments here that Chris McDaniel has the establishment RINOs shaking in their boots and wetting their pants, in the fear that he might just be right and the court might rule in his favor. That is the only logical reason for the amount of venom that they are spewing. They have become as the Democrats, squealing, yelling and pointing fingers to shift the blame away from themselves, but if you look, that is not the only way that they have become like the Democrats.

@9:00 PM. That's the thing. It's like they are throwing everything but the kitchen sink out there - silly Facebook posts which were debunked by journalists in about 10 minutes as nothing but standard issue comment trolling, a star witness of patently dubious veracity whom they either knew or should have known would say anything they wanted him to for a few bucks, and then all this 'rock solid proof' conjured up by unreliable volunteers who're clearly blinded by zealotry - and yet the lawyers are obviously not reviewing any of it before it goes out their door, let alone culling it.

It's an insult to the courts and it's an insult to the people of the state of MS who deserve better.

At this point, the people of the state of MS, no matter what their political affiliation, should get down on their knees and thank their lucky stars if there may have been any voter fraud if that's what it took to spare the world both a Senator McDaniels and the indignity of the never-ending freak show which the supporters to whom he is now beholden might have inflicted upon the world had he been elected.

I re-read the history of Gov. McLaurin in light of Robin Williams' suicide. I knew Bilbo's rise tied to his support of Vardaman in the race to succeed McLaurin. However, I was struck by how much Bilbo's refusal to concede and his resulting crusade against the Percy supporters (which he would cite for years to come) mirrors our current situation. Now, all we need is for McDaniel to get arrested in Oxford and announce his campaign for governor on the jailhouse steps and we will be on our way to repeating history right at 100 years later.

@9:08, that's a priceless image you just drew for us: an abandoned amusement park in a 'lesser-used' county. Very funny stuff.

But it's also really sad at the same time because it's doubtful that any of these people started out intending to incinerate their own reputations in front of the world. This is what happens when we allow politics to become a substitute religion in our lives, kids. Healthy perspective gets subsumed by blind zeal for the cause.

Dear Teabaggers:

Dear Asshole at 9:28... I have contributed at least $1,000 to most every major republican candidate in the state for the last 10 years - to be clear I mean Gov., Lt. Gov, Sec. of State, and U.S. Senators. About the same to HOR reps. I am a Republican through and through. I am conservative by any measure if you ask me about issues- social or fiscal. I tell this only to illustrate that I am, indeed, a partisan.

I own a business in this state, and I pay lots of federal and state taxes. I employ many people- not lots- about 20 folks. I do not qualify as a large business by any means. I do not consider myself "rich", but arguably I am successful, at least by measures of our state.

I share the frustrations of many that our elected officials can't agree about anything other than spending our money. Despite the system in which we live- I even have my doubts about the congressional seniority system. I know that there are a lot more people both more and less fortunate than me that share those frustrations about Washington.

The McDaniel campaign has been an embarrassment the likes of which I cannot begin to describe. It has represented the lowest common denominator of our society, an has become a cause celebre of the white trash in this state who have always been our Achilles heal. The most shameful aspect being the idea that black Mississippians have no business voting Republican.

Every person has their vote, and every person is entitled to their opinion... this I do not dispute. Each person, however, is not entitled to their own facts.

Thad Cochran won the most votes. The fact that some of them were black, or politically independent, or previously democratic is irrelevant. We have an open primary system. As a conservative, I am glad that we do.

I invite black, white, latino, and other citizens of Mississippi to consider that the Republican Party welcomes you. We have our principals, as all parties do, but I say that ours mirror yours. We believe in individual responsibility, free enterprise, equal opportunity, and the opportunity to succeed with hard work.

Thad Cochran did not change his stance on a single issue to get an additional vote. He has proven himself to be fair. Mr. McDaniel, on the other hand, would rather be divisive and this is the reason that he lost his primary. I am sorry for his family.... but its time he dealt with it.

I wonder if everyone ignored this it would go away? You have to think that with the shift from wanting a new runoff to hand me the election some people in the Mcdaniel campaign understand that they have lost the vast majority of their support. Would love to know the real story of who and what is driving this losing battle. Maybe someone will break soon and tell the story.

Break news. Regression analysis of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and phone polling has shown that Chris is better looking, has a cooler car, has more friends, is kinder to animals, has better table manners, has a more manly handshake, runs faster, dresses cooler, and most importantly has a larger more satisfying penis than Thad. Because of these facts the votes for all counties starting with the letters T, H, A, D and C should not be counted.

The really sad thing about this whole mess is that, no matter what the outcome of the challenge may be, in November half the republican voters are probably going to either vote for Childers or not vote at all. If that happens we can say good-by to the MSGOP for a long time to come and the Democrats will likely keep control of the U.S. Senate. That is truly sad.

So McD wants to throw out the votes entirely in two of the three counties that make up metropolitan Jackson: Hinds and Madison Counties. I' suggest we throw out the Tyner Law Firm and McD's presence in the Jackson area before throwing out all our legitimate votes here. Face it McD: the people spoke, you lost, and now they really, really want you and Tyner to go away.

William S. Billingsley who voted at the Cameron precinct isn't the same person as William M. Billingsley who voted at New Life Baptist Church. There may not be more than one Mitch Tyner out there but this Bill Billingsley's vote wasn't challenged.

@11:42PM Outstanding post. Thank you.

@7:48AM, if it is true as you contend that the only way to beat Democrats in MS is by appeasing an irrational faction of angry "purity" kooks who believe African-Americans should not be allowed to vote for Republicans and who will stop at nothing, including bribing people to make obviously bogus accusations of fraud and even going so far as to libel thousands of innocent private citizens in order to subvert the outcome of an election, then so be it.

Commenters on many conservative websites keep threatening that the "base" will pick up all their marbles & vote for Dems or stay home if their demands for "purity" are not met.

Well, if "the base" would do that in retaliation merely for the fact that the majority of Republican voters demand that their party do the moral, decent & just thing here and seek to expand its appeal to people of other races, ethnicities & religions so the Party of Lincoln truly can be a party which welcomes all citizens, then perhaps it's time for Republicans to start looking for a more stable (and moral, ethical and sane) base who can help them win on more admirable principles which allow the rest of us to be able to sleep at night.

And the truth of the matter is that any political party which relies on a foundation consisting of a capriciously self-serving & exclusionary cohort as inherently weak, unreliable & self-sabotaging as the one you describe would be doomed to fail sooner rather than later anyway. Better to keep our self-respect (and God's respect) by doing the right thing and letting the electoral chips fall where they may.

But first, let's just see how big this supposedly huge & fearsome make-or-break "base" - the faction of the Tea Party which claims it is aligned with the odious views of McDaniels' supporters and who telegraph their intention to help Harry Reid keep his Democratic majority in the US Senate in November - really is, okay?

11:42, someone said it before, but thank you for that excellent post.

Bill- I want to personally say (though anonymously) that I highly respect you and really hate how it's gone for people like you. You certainly do not deserve it. I've always appreciated reading your thoughts on various subjects and I agree with you 99% of the time, and maybe more than that. You've certainly opened my eyes on a few things to a different thought or two I never considered. Thank you for that.

I highly disagree with pretty much everything Chris has done since the runoff, but I've been told numerous time by friends of Chris he's not really as this all seems. I find it extremely hard to believe, so I'll think he changed more and more as this process went on. Some things, I'm not sure I can agree he didn't agree with before, but regardless- from reading your posts, I really can't see yourself "happy" with the way this has been handled or an advocate of it. I will not think of you like that. You're alright with me.

Has anyone seen the report of Chuckie Johnson's first speech in the JFP? It is reported there like this:
"At the beginning of the meeting, just after asking God in the opening prayer to "be violent against" the GOP establishment, Mississippi Tea Party Chairman Roy Nicholson thanked Johnson for getting "down in that dirty, muddy trench and exposing a lot of truth" in Mississippi politics."
Gee whiz. What kind of prayer is that? He was in a church!

11:42, also think your post was excellent. The principles you outline, and the example you give of your own efforts, are top-notch.

I cannot claim to have given all that money, or paid as many taxes, but I aspire to be successful, and will work hard to get there. We disagree in only three places.

1. On the question of whether Cochran won the most votes (as opposed to being awarded the highest tally... by only by "counting" some ballots that were invalid-double-votes, or invalid-absentee-votes, or retroactively-legalized-by-erasure-votes, or whatever). The lawsuit will soon decide how many such votes existed, and show us whether there are enough PROVABLY invalid votes to overturn the runoff-result, but it seems clear that thousands of invalid votes *did* exist. Do you disagree with that? To me, skin color has exactly zero bearing on the situation, except that people keep dragging it in as a way to cry wolf/racist. I'm in favor of expanding the party by convincing folks the principles we hold are true & correct, but that is not what I saw being attempted during June 2014.

2. On the question of whether Cochran has changed his positions, during the runoff. Many of the robocalls and radiospots and flyers that I examined were not Republican positions, unlike Cochran's material prior to June, which was recognizably Republican. Maybe you are arguing that Cochran did not change his position as far as his voting-record will go, versus his rhetorical position?

3. On the question of which campaign was more of an embarrassment, and which candidate will best mirror the ideology of individual responsibility, free enterprise, equality of opportunity, and the value of hard work. I don't think Cochran has done a BAD job in DC, and given the circumstances of the 1970s and 1980s and 1990s when dem majorities were the norm, he did pretty well indeed. But it has always been clear to me that Cochran is a quiet persuader, and a compromiser, not someone who will stand firm on principle by default. Cochran's voting record and endorser-set back that up; he is no Ted Cruz, he is more of a John McCain in most respects. Reagan was willing to compromise, but at the same time, Reagan always stood firm, and did NOT compromise on any fundamental principle. Whether McDaniel is the ideal person for the post-2014 senate seat, surely not... but he is indubitably a fighter, who stands firm, and given what we are likely to witness in 2015 and 2016 and 2017 and beyond, that seems like the only way to preserve free enterprise (not public-private corporatism like Solyndra), individual responsibility (not socialized everything like Obamacare), equality of opportunity (not government-mandated equalization by coercion), and the rest. The debt is predicted to stay stuck around 90% of GDP indefinitely, until and unless we get fighters to DC who will invert the deficit by *really* cutting spending. That is not a description of Cochran.

In any case, appreciate your post; even though we disagree on a few points, it was a nice spot of sanity, in an otherwise-stormy sea of vituperation.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required.
