(Western Journalism) Things have just turned very sour for the GOP and Thad Cochran.
Angered by the fact that Thad Cochran's camp stiffed him after he helped them commit a massive voter fraud in the GOP primary, a Black Mississippi minister, the Reverend Stevie Fielder of the First Union Missionary Baptist Church, has come forward to admit his part in the crimes–and he is naming names. Fielder says that, acting in concert with Saleem Baird of the Cochran camp, he agreed to pay $15.00 each to black Democrats who crossed over to vote for Cochran in last month’s runoff against Chris McDaniel. Fielder was to receive $16,000 in return.

The conduct admitted to by Rev. Fielder constitutes violations of both federal and Mississippi State voting laws and could put all of the conspirators in prison. What makes this charge so believable is that just three years ago, the head of the Mississippi NAACP was sent to prison for voter fraud.
Text messages and a recorded interview in the possession of Gotnews.com confirm that not only Baird, but Cochran Campaign Manager Kirk Sims, was also involved in the fraudulent scheme to buy black votes in a state where they are readily available for sale.
