Sen. Thad Cochran narrowly won the Mississippi Republican primary against Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel on June 24. Or did he?
Early reports of “voting irregularities” have been confirmed, and now Reverend Stevie Fielder has come forward with evidence that the Cochran campaign gave him cash to buy votes.
“They said they needed black votes,” said the Reverend Fielder.
Fielder says he was told by the Cochran campaign that McDaniel is a racist, but he now knows that’s not true.
“What I did was wrong,” Fielder said, maintaining that he was misled by the Cochran campaign. Charles Johnson, an independent journalist, broke the story.
