The Tea Party might not have had the same kind of sweeping success it saw just a few years ago during elections, and that’s to be expected, to a degree.
Republicans have slowly changed their tune and are adopting many of the same principles and ideologies as their Tea Party counterparts.
But it’s not just that the Republican party is beginning to resemble the Tea Party that has prevented some from being elected to office.
In some cases, it’s outright fraud.
Chris McDaniel of Mississippi believes that he was unfairly kept from office, and he’s filed a lawsuit against incumbent Thad Cochran.
MacDaniel claims that thousands of votes were bought at $15 a piece, as Cochran used Democrat votes to help get him elected.
As reported by The Hill:
After weeks of threats that he’d challenge the results — and an appeal to the state party to review the results that was rebuffed — McDaniel has filed a challenge in Jones County claiming that enough Democrats who’d voted in the earlier primary crossed over to invalidate the results.
Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24, so we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process, he said in a statement.
This challenge is not about the candidates. It is about the integrity of Mississippi’s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.
McDaniel’s campaign has submitted thousands of votes it claims were potentially cast illegally and should be thrown out. Those include McDaniels’s own lawyer, Mitch Tyner, and his wife.
It’s these kinds of power plays that keep corrupt officials in office, and McDaniel is right to go after Cochran.
It was reported by Breitbart News that Cochran had approached a black pastor and offered to pay his members $15 for every vote, claiming McDaniel was a racist.
Elections have always been rife with fraud, but it’s still shocking to see such a blatant example of it.
Meanwhile, neither party is talking about some of the real issues at hand.
The vulnerability of the electric grid is rarely discussed. When it is discussed, nothing is done.
And nobody is talking about the massive dip in value the U.S. dollar will suffer when foreign countries start dumping dollars… or the trillions in derivatives that could explode any day now.
“Financial Hiroshima” could be right around the corner. How prepared are you? To survive the days ahead, you’re going to need to have a complete plan for survival… a plan just like this one.
