    It's basically unenforceable unless the person doing so admits to it.

    Unless poll officials are allowed to match names to ballots and compare the primary ballots to the main election ballots.

    Which seems questionable at best.

    As I believe was shown earlier, reviewing the records can determine if the person voted in both primaries.
    Now you may not be able to prove whether or not they had changed their minds and really intended to vote for a republican later, but that is highly unlikely.
    Especially as we know about the racist targeted ads to get them to vote for Cochran so McDaniel's would lose.

    Just that alone speaks to fraud. Couple that with the many dual votes in both primaries. There is no reason to think that McDaniel may not succeed getting this primary kicked.


    And then you have this over at politico.

    Yeah, it just reeks of fraud.


    My solution would be to disqualify Cochran for soliciting fraud.
    And then force all those who voted in both primaries to maintain that of their last stated intent. Vote for a republican or stay home.

    Yes. It is illegal for a voter in Mississippi to vote in both the democrat and republican party primaries. You can vote in one or the other. Not both.

    You are not getting it. We are talking about just the primary...not both the primary and the general election. The most recent election in Mississippi was a runoff election between the two top candidates for senate in the GOP primary. McDaniel received more votes then Cochran in the original primary, however neither of the two reached the 50% threshold so they had a runoff election. What's at question are the votes for Cochran from democrats who had already voted in the democrat primary. Those are illegal votes and it is quite enforceable. What is unenforceable is the pledge that the democrat party makes you sign to support the democrat candidate in the general election if you voted for him in the primary. Voters are entitled to vote for whichever candidate they choose in the general election.

    That makes more sense then.

    If someone already voted in a primary, voting in the OTHER primary is highly questionable at best. How the hell did they do that, anyways? Are the Dem and Rep primaries on different days?

    The initial republican primary(held on the same day as the democrat primary) ended with McDaniel getting the most votes. However the winning candidate must reach the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff election. He failed to do that. Therefore a runoff election was later held. That is where democrats who had already voted in their own primary illegally voted in the GOP runoff election. Cochran won with democrat votes a growing number of which are turning out to be illegal.

    Your solution is criminal. Saying you owe us is a long standing practice in politics. I guess when black people do it is a crime. Like driving through town on a sunny day.

    The Tea Party supporters have lost their minds because they were out played. The whining from them is getting tiring.
