    No/maybe.
    Carpetbagger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Teabagger, or rather "teabagging", is either an insult, a somewhat disturbing sexual act (IMO), or both.

    In both cases, however, a NEGATIVE connotation exists. Different, but negative.

    I do not think democrats back then resorted to sexual puns like they do now.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You see two conservatives agreeing about voter fraud. I am not a republican.

    Well...one of the two candidates is a RINO that employed some very nasty tactics and the other is an actual conservative. There is at least a chance that the runoff election may be nullified as there are mounting numbers of democrats who voted both in the democrat and republican primary. Those are illegal votes.

    Is there a law in Mississippi that disallows people from voting in both open primaries?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Voters are free to choose to vote in either Democratic or Republican primaries, but can't vote in both and can't cross the party line in second primaries if they voted in the first primary.

    So far as I can tell, it's basically just this:

    § 23-15-575. Participation in primary election.
    No person shall be eligible to participate in any primary election unless he intends to support the nominations made
    in the primary in which he participates.
    Sources: Derived from 1942 Code § 3129 [Codes, 1906, § 3717; Hemingway's 1917, § 6409; Laws, 1930, § 5887;
    Laws, 1932, ch. 238; Laws, 1934, ch. 308; Laws, 1947, 1st Ex. sess. ch. 17, §§ 1-3; Laws, 1948, ch. 309, §§ 1, 2;
    repealed by Laws, 1970, ch. 506, § 33, and 1986, ch. 495, § 346]; en, Laws, 1986, ch. 495, § 183, eff from and after
    January 1, 1987.
    Got the info from here, which was linked to from some site called "ballotpedia"



    It appears to be unenforceable and thus meaningless.
