McDaniel takes Democrat’s wisecrack about six votes seriously

A flippant comment on a Facebook page landed an Ocean Springs man in the middle of Chris McDaniel’s election challenge.

Nick Mason says he was baiting a Tea Party follower (although he has a more inflammatory name for the party adherents) when he said he was a Democrat who voted six times in the June 24 runoff.

There is some truth in that statement, he says. He is a Democrat. And he voted. Once in the primary and once in the runoff, both times for Sen. Thad Cochran.
