Enough is enough. Chris McDaniel has used every excuse in the book to delay filing a challenge to incumbent Thad Cochran’s election as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. His campaign has said filing a challenge before having all evidence will prevent him from including additional evidence. They have said they need more time to gather more data. They have said they need birthdates to verify voter identities. They have said circuit clerks have prevented them from seeing public information. However, at the end of the day, McDaniel’s campaign has been given access to everything to which they are entitled under the law. And despite their assertions, introducing a challenge to the Mississippi Republican Party will in no way prevent them from presenting new information of voter fraud to a court if indeed they discover it after their challenge is filed.
Furthermore, McDaniel and his attorneys have all said they have enough evidence to challenge the election. McDaniel has described the election as being a “sham” and said outright that Cochran “stole” the election. If that’s the case, pony up the evidence, Mr. McDaniel.
We absolutely support McDaniel’s right to challenge this election. If there is evidence of voter fraud, then it needs to come to light.
The Clarion-Ledger has investigated several reports of alleged voter fraud or voting irregularities. In most cases, no clear evidence existed to substantiate the claims. But that’s not to say other evidence doesn’t exist, as McDaniel asserts.
