McDaniel offers thousands of dollars as 'Voter Fraud Rewards'

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Republican Chris McDaniel has announced two new efforts to prove the election he lost was rigged.

He calls them the "Election Integrity Challenge and Voter Fraud Reward."

The "Challenge" is a way for his campaign supporters to 'help fund 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.'

McDaniel says he's issuing the challenge "on the heels of yet another allegation of criminal misconduct aimed at the Cochran campaign's effort to bring ineligible voters to the polls on June 24."

Hinds County Democratic Party Chairman Claude McInnis has alleged that Cochran supporter and paid campaign operative Pete Perry "asked Democrats to help him "break the law" by working together to accept Democratic voters who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and in Tuesday's GOP runoff."

Perry also oversaw the GOP's primary in Hinds County.

"The most important issue here is maintaining the integrity of the electoral process here in Mississippi," McDaniel said. "These allegations of criminal behavior on behalf of the Cochran are troubling, and any evidence of fraud will be turned over to the authorities to be investigated."

The McDaniel campaign has also launched a website dedicated to his Election Integrity Challenge and Voter Fraud Reward.

His campaign says if anyone has evidence on voter fraud in connection with the runoff election they can email it to Reward@mcdaniel2014.com or call in tips to 601-624-7748.
