In the wake of revelations that Senator Thad Cochran’s June 24 primary runoff victory over Chris McDaniel was cemented with vicious race-baiting radio ads and illegal Democrat cross-over voting comes another shocking allegation: A black reverend claims that he was part of a Cochran campaign operation to illegally buy the votes of black Mississippians.

A recent study found that Mississippi is the most corrupt state in the union. Now revelations about race-baiting, voting irregularities, and other violations of election law relating to the state’s June 24 GOP primary runoff have many critics wondering if Senator Thad Cochran’s narrow victory in it isn’t just the latest chapter in that corruption.
