- Something is rotten in the state of Mississippi July 8
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday night called for an investigation into the Mississippi GOP primary to probe supposed instances of voter fraud. Though he stopped short of definitively claiming some voters violated election laws, Cruz said in an interview on The Mark Levin Show that the allegations were "serious" and that they "need to be vigorously investigated, and anyone involved in criminal conduct should be prosecuted."
Incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R) won the primary runoff in part by convincing black Democrats to cross over and vote for him. Tea Party-aligned challenger Chris McDaniel and his supporters cried foul, saying they'd identified thousands of examples of fraud.
There has so far been no evidence to substantiate the voter fraud claims.- -
