@NMissC – Statute that McDaniel lawyers base #mssen challenge timing on has been repealed

By: Magnolia Tribune - August 26, 2014

Some reading comprehension problems with the McDaniel lawyers, who also forgot to read the pocket part

2. The second statute does not have a deadline in it, which makes it more like another statute, Miss. Code Ann. § 23-15-927, which says that challenges under that code provision must be filed “forthwith.”

Well, the “other statute” talks about the length of time required to file in court, for all kinds of contests, and does not speak to the time deadline for filing in the executive comittee, unlike the first two statutes. Furthermore, that statute has actually been amended (!!!!) and now has a deadline of ten days, replacing the “forthwith” requirement.
