The McDaniel Hostage Crisis – Day 28 – Courthouse fun and Truth and “just us” #mssen

By: Magnolia Tribune - July 22, 2014

We interrupt this coverage for a special report.

Well folks, we’ve made it. Four whole weeks. And still no sign of slowing down. The craziness keeps coming in waves. But at some point, you’ve got to think that other political leaders start publicly weighing in on this foolishness and how bad this is for the party and the state of Mississippi. The fundraising continues unabated, with McDaniel continuing to say things like , “I believe that the election was stolen.”

Yesterday, there was some back and forth in the ongoing fatwa that the Chris McDaniel campaign has declared against Circuit Clerks statewide. The McDaniel campaign filed it’s petition for rehearing on the “Hallmark decision” arguing the fascinating technicalities between ‘poll books’ and ‘tally lists’. Harrison County responded by saying, “The sky is not falling.” They go on to say, “Petitioner repeatedly attempts to create hysteria by essentially asserting the sky is falling around the election laws of this State. As stated before when you sort through it, ALL the Petitioner has been “denied” access to is the “date of birth and age information” of each and every “registered voter” in Harrison County, Mississippi, whether they voted or not. That’s all nothing more nothing less. “

The out of state trial lawyers representing True the Vote are going to get an evidentiary hearing on Thursday.

But politics isn’t about lawsuits. It’s about pressing the flesh.

The South MS Tea Party sent out an email saying that McDaniel was in essence crashing a regularly scheduled meeting. That sent the patriots into a frenzy. They asked supporters to:

Bring any REAL Chris supporters you know.
Wear a plaid shirt and jeans, Chris’s official casual where (SIC), to show support.
Bring your Check Book!

Of course, McDaniel came wearing a suit, but that’s just a minor technicality. But in an interview with the Sun Herald, he continues to take, what he calls, his portrayal as a racist really personally.

At the end of his interview, asked if he were going to give a speech, McDaniel said, “Yeah . . . yeah . . . you need to hear this.” But the Patriots would have none of it. Paul Boudreaux kicked the Sun Herald out of the meeting.

Boudreaux – “You didn’t get invited . . . you did not get invited”
Sun Herald – “This is in a public building”
Boudreaux – “But we paid for it though”
Sun Herald – “So you’re telling me I gotta leave”
Boudreaux – “I’d appreciate it . . . Thank you”

At least he was wearing plaid . . . in July.

It doesn’t seem to be Truth and Justice as much as it is Truth and “Just Us” . . . whoever “us” is. One things for sure, “us” does not seem to include “40,000 liberal Democrats”.

That’s the way it was – Day 28 of the McDaniel Hostage Crisis.

Good day Mississippi – and good luck.
