Haley Barbour PAC Connected to Racially Charged Ads In Mississippi Senate Race as Vote Buying Allegations Surface

By: Thursday July 3, 2014 11:00 am

The GOP civil war in Mississippi continues as Chris McDaniel’s campaign to force a special election targets not only Senator Thad Cochran for voter fraud but former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour’s PAC for using misleading racially charged ads against a fellow Republican. The ads from “Citizens for Progress” claim Chris McDaniel, among other things, wants to take African-Americans back to the “good ole’ bad days.”

Though cynical, what Barbour did is not illegal. What is illegal is another allegation made by supporters of Chris McDaniel concerning “vote buying.”

By and large the many primaries of Tuesday were a disappointment to the far-right…but congrats to the Republicans of Iowa, you’ve managed to have your GOP nominate someone who actually aspires to be Sarah Palin.

Well, if nothing else they’ll be good at lining up

I guess being affiliated with the kind of politics that led to the two biggest wars in history and mass genocide only takes a few generations to have the stench fade away.

In our continuing effort to establish ourselves as serious commentators about the end times, Crane and I bring you Harley Brown, a Republican candidate for governor of the great state of Idaho.

Except he really wants to be president.
