As Chris McDaniel’s team continues to scour voting records to add to an expected legal challenge of his loss to Thad Cochran, it has listed McDaniel’s lead lawyer in the challenge, and his wife, as irregular votes that should be tossed out. McDaniel lawyer Mitchell H. “Mitch” Tyner Sr. on Monday sent Cochran’s attorneys additional affidavits listing hundreds more alleged illegal or irregular votes from the June 24 runoff. Problem is, Tyner and his wife, Sloane Tyner, were flagged by a McDaniel volunteer as “CROSSOVER/IRREGULAR VOTING” in one of the new affidavits claiming problems with Madison County voting. The affidavit says that with Tyner and his wife’s votes, records showed “voted written in margin and on June 24.” It would appear, given McDaniel’s assertion that he really won the election by 25,000 votes and other claims, that the Tyners are alleged to have improperly voted for Cochran.
Cochran’s campaign and lawyers, and some election officials, have refuted McDaniel’s claim that there were thousands of illegal or irregular votes in the June 24 runoff. They say McDaniel volunteers have found “irregularities” where none exist and that the election, which Cochran won by 7,667 votes, was fair and had no more problems than the human error involved in all elections.
Others the McDaniel team has listed as being illegal or irregular votes in McDaniel’s challenge include Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and Cochran campaign spokesman Jordan Russell, both of whom claim their votes were not improper or irregular.
