True the Vote Files Lawsuit Against MS GOP: Destruction of Documents, Double Voting & Discarded Legal Votes
In June Senator Thad Cochran won the GOP primary runoff election over conservative challenger Chris McDaniel after 25,000-35,000 Democrats helped push him to victory.
Thad Cochran won the election over Chris McDaniel by 6,880 votes in the June 24 runoff.
However, since the election, the McDaniel campaign quickly found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week.
This is illegal and their votes should not be counted.
The Chris McDaniel for Senate campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties where this occurred.
McDaniel supporters were barred from reviewing voter rolls in nine Mississippi counties.
On Thursday True the Vote, the nation’s largest voter integrity organization, filed a lawsuit against the Mississippi Republican Party for destruction of absentee ballot documents, double voting and discarded legal votes found statewide.
True the Vote reported:
True the Vote (TTV), the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today filed a motion with the Jackson Division of the U.S. District Court, requesting temporary restraining order and injunctive relief be issued against the Mississippi Republican Party and all defendants to prevent further tampering, redaction, or destruction of voter records by Defendants or their agents.
“Defendant county commissioners have continued to violate federal law by preventing access to election records. Now, we think we know why,” said True the Vote founder, Catherine Engelbrecht. “If the affidavits we now have regarding the destruction of election documents and other similarly stunning findings are true, then no Mississippian, no American, can trust the results of this election.”
True the Vote will be providing the Court with dozens of full detailed affidavit reports, containing stunning evidence of election subversion, including:
** Destruction of voters’ absentee ballot applications and mandatory envelopes;
** Illegal alteration of poll books;
** Cross-over and double voting;
** Absentee ballots marked “Accepted” but unopened.
“Based on all we have seen — and all we have not been allowed to see — we now believe that unless the Court steps in, illegal voting will go unchallenged, voters’ rights will be diluted, voters’ trust will be violated – and an unlawful and inaccurate election may be certified by the State of Mississippi,” said Engelbrecht.
TTV’s motion was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, Jackson Division.
Mississippi GOP chairman Joe Nosef issued a statement Thursday in response to the latest legal actions from True The Vote, saying he plans to target True the Vote and its lawsuit’s various Mississippi voter plaintiffs with legal action.
