Conservative White Observers Will be Trolling Black Mississippi Voters in Tomorrow’s Primary

As BreakingBrown reported earlier today, embattled Mississippi U.S. Senator Thad Cochran has reached out to black voterblack voters in hopes of pulling victory from the jaws of defeat in Tuesday’s primary.

At least a dozen black preachers met at a church to devise a plan to convince their flock to support Republican incumbent Thad Cochran, but now there’s a new obstacle. Cochran’s opponent, Chris McDaniel, is supported by the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party, and  those sympathetic to McDaniel will be trolling black precincts to ensure that there are no abnormalities.

The Wire reports that conservative backers of McDaniel–including the Senate Conservative Fund, FreedomWorks, and the Tea Party Patriots–have formed a group of election observers concerned about Cochran’s outreach to African-Americans.

“The laws in Mississippi are unusually open to poll watching from the outside,” Ken Cuccinelli, the Senate Conservatives Fund’s president reportedly said. “We’re going to take full advantage of that and we’re going to lay eyes on Cochran’s effort to bring Democrats in … And of course, if they voted in primaries, that’s illegal.”


Since Mississippi voters aren’t required to register for a party, voters of any political affiliation can vote in the run-off election so long as they didn’t vote in the June 3 Democratic primary.

Many view the Tea Party’s effort to keep Democratic voters from crossing over as a thinly veiled attempt to keep black voters from casting a vote for Cochran.

Here's where you'd have to ask "How come all this trolling/observing runs on. One-way street??".... Who's monitoring the "Tea Party " precincts? ... In 2012, The governor of Mississippi (Clearly w/tea party intent) agitated & instigated for republicans to " voluntarily" present I.D. spitefuly manipulate the (false) voter implications... An lie that drew political legislation from false accusations all the way up to (tea party-minded) " law makers who knew the voter fraud accusations were trumped up bogus charges by the conservative talk media propaganda media....
