Mississippi attack ads that painted conservative Republicans and tea partyers as racists were funded by Senate Republicans, RedState Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson has confirmed.

Advertisements by All Citizens for Mississippi, which attacked state Sen. Chris McDaniel and painted conservatives as racists, were partly funded by Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and Roy Blunt, RedState senate-republican-leaders-paid-for-attacks-against-conservatives/” target=”_blank”>reported.

According to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour-backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.

“Mississippi Conservatives, in turn, was funded in part by Sally Bradshaw of the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project, former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, the United States Chamber of Commerce, and the political action committees created for Senators Mitch McConnell ($50,000), John Cornyn ($50,000), Rob Portman ($25,000), Bob Corker ($25,000), and Roy Blunt ($5,000),” the report said.

Mr. McDaniel, who was narrowly defeated by Republican Sen. Thad Cochran after being forced into a runoff, has called on the Mississippi Supreme Court for an emergency order granting him access to original poll books.

He hopes to prove that some people who voted in the June 24 runoff election that killed his Senate chances also cast ballots in the June 3 Democratic primary, CBS News senate-runoff-saga/” target=”_blank”>reported Wednesday.

Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Making big bucks, salary, commissions for fundraising, placing ads, to replace Republicans with Republicans.

Why should I believe anything that either comes from Red State or the Washington Times....
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

The US Constitution is a result of compromise and ideals... and I think it's pretty darn great.

You're not the only one.

I wish Mr. McDaniel the best in trying to overturn the results of that corrupt election.

I posted this before, I'll state it again:
Time and time and time again, I've seen posts here bemoaning democratic voter fraud, which we know to be real. And of course, it's right to fight against it.

So.... here's a case that looks to be -Republican- vote fraud.
Why should we not fight against THAT, as well?

Absolutely it should be fought (and it is, have no doubt about that!).  This incident isn't limited to Barbour's cesspool in MS, it extends all the way back to DC, BTW.

At what point does McDaniel have to put up or shut up?  A week, a month?  Because that is when I will give a damn.
