McDaniel pledges 15 $1K bounties for Cochran voter fraud

Folks, you can’t make this stuff up. John Grisham can’t make this stuff up. The writers for House of Cards can’t make this stuff up.

A reward? From a serious candidate for U.S. Senate? Really?

But the email isn’t just about the bounty, mind you. They are trying to raise money, this time $15 at a time.

“Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign allegedly paid $15 per vote to steal the June 24 Republican primary election,” the webpage reads.

The campaign says it is trying to establish 15 rewards valued at $1,000 each, and they are asking people to contribute $15 to help fund them. Neither the email nor the webpage says what will happen to the money if no rewards are paid out.
