McDaniel Supporters Allege Fundraising Violations by NRSC

The GOP Senate campaign committee illegally funneled funds on behalf of Sen. Thad Cochran, two operatives say. In an ugly, barren press conference, they demanded a new election.

There’s “no proof that this theory is true but no proof that it is not true” either.

After months of a bizarre racially charged campaign featuring a nursing home break-in, an anarchic conference call, Tea Partiers locked in a county courthouse on Election Night, and accusations of senility, the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Mississippi between six-term incumbent Thad Cochran and Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel is now supposed to turn on circumstantial evidence of Federal Election Commission violations.

In a press conference held at an Alexandria, Virginia, office building by the controversial independent journalist Charles C. Johnson and New Jersey-based political consultant Rick Shaftan, the conservative supporters of McDaniel made one last attempt to try to overturn the results of the June 24 runoff primary before a half-dozen onlookers.
