    That is a weird take. Especially as it was the Dems doing it.

    If the story is true then it was the Conservatives that were buying votes.

    How is this "the Dems" doing it?

    If the story is true, you may be more than wrong.
    Did you not read what was stated before your post?

    If those emails are true, this is an actual event.
    But it still may not be directly connected to Cochran.
    What I mean by that is; Yes he requested support from dems to win the primary and contracted out to do that, but had no idea that they were going to use fraudulent actions to get those dems to turn out.


    As far as I am concerned though, it should disqualify him regardless.


    So support your assertion and show, that if true, he intended for the hired Dems not to be honest in getting folks to vote?
    I am sure you can't.

    If he didn't know what they were up to, as in how they were going to do it, this is just Dems acting normally like Dems.

    Oy Vey! Another one who didn't read what preceded their post.

    Read the post above this one.

    If the Rev. is telling the truth, that scenario above is impossible. His interactions were repeatedly with the Cochran campaign itself, Saleem Baird, who handed him the cash to distribute, allegedly, to voters. Saleem Baird, with the Cochran campaign, allegedly personally delivered the envelopes to the Rev. already stuffed with the cash. At other times, the Rev. said he went to Cochran's campaign offices to get that cash. The Rev. said he was promised a fee from the Cochran campaign to deliver that cash to individual voters.

    If your scenario is true, almost everything of substance the Rev. said on the interview is a lie. You can't believe ANY of the Rev's story, and also believe the Cochran campaign didn't direct the vote buying.

    What is kind of funny is if the Rev. is telling the truth, he's one of the more incompetent con artists around. What kind of criminal distributes $5-10,000 in an obviously illegal vote buying scheme, agrees to condition his fee on Cochran winning the election, and/or (it's not entirely clear) agrees to collect his entire fee for directing a criminal conspiracy on the back end, after he's done all the work that if proved could land him in jail?

    The Conservative in this primary was McDaniels, not Cochran.

    If it is true it would be the Cochran camp and Democrat operatives conspiring to buy Democrat votes.

    What the initial claimant got wrong is that this wouldn't be "conservatives" involved in the voter fraud since the Conservative in the primary was McDaniel.

    No. Any number of variations makes it possible.
    You are assuming that Cochran knew what Saleem was doing.

    You are assuming that Saleem was acting at the direction of Cochran, when he very well may have been acting on behalf of an outside force.

    Says you. Until there is a direct connection established between an order/direction from Cochran to Saleem, the above can apply.

    I can be the devils advocate here and argue their side as nothing has been proven. Especially as the text messages appear to be from one called Saleen and another called Saleem.



    But like I said; "As far as I am concerned though, it should disqualify him regardless."

    Especially as it has been reported that there is currently over 3300 irregularities (dual votes) with less than half the counties counted.
