McDaniel case gets under way today in court

A hearing was to get underway this morning at the courthouse in a suit filed by Sen. Chris McDaniel against Neshoba County Circuit Clerk Patti Duncan Lee, alleging she “withheld voter records” while his representative canvased ballots from the June 24 Republican runoff election in the race for U. S. Senate.

In the suit, McDaniel claimed that Lee allegedly withheld voting records when two people representing his campaign went to canvass the ballots in the Neshoba County courthouse in early July.

In response to the suit, Lee said she “properly followed the law” and gave McDaniel’s representatives more than what they wanted.

Circuit Court Judge, Place 1 Marcus Gordon was to preside over the hearing beginning at 9 a.m.
