CHARLIE MITCHELL: Hosemann to Offer Elections Ideas to Legislature

There are no gaping flaws in Mississippi elections. This Chris McDaniel stuff is just that: stuff.

All that’s required for honest elections is honest people. All that’s required to pervert the process is the absence of an ethical compass.

That said, Delbert Hosemann, Mississippi’s forward-looking secretary of state, says he will invite legislators to consider some options when they convene in January for the 2015 session. To that end, he has assembled a 51-member citizen panel to talk about options.

If there is a problem in election rules today it is that Mississippi voters are expected to follow an honor code, of sorts.

This point has been discussed, cussed and litigated.
