McDaniel Campaign Offers $1,000 Rewards For Evidence Of Voter Fraud

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel’s (R) campaign announced Thursday that they are offering 15 rewards of $1,000 each for people who can bring evidence that leads to the arrest and conviction of people involved in voter fraud in the Mississippi Republican runoff for U.S. Senate between McDaniel and Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), who won the runoff.

McDaniel’s Senate campaign announced the reward in an email as part of his newly launched “Election Integrity Challenge and Voter Fraud Reward.”

“The Challenge is aimed at funding fifteen $1,000 rewards which will be paid to individuals who provide evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in voter fraud on or leading up to the June 24, 2014, Republican primary runoff election in Mississippi,” the announcement on Thursday said.

The reward comes as McDaniel’s campaign says it has found more evidence of rampant misconduct and voter fraud in the runoff election.

McDaniel and his supporters argue that the state senator is actually the rightful winner of the Republican primary and Cochran only won through foul play, partially by recruiting African-Americans and Democrats to vote for the incumbent senator.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
