Former Breitbart/Daily Caller Blogger Pays Bogus Source for Bogus Anti-Cochran “Scoop”

Please remember - this is not me

Here we go again with yet another bogus exposé by crazed wingnut blogger Charles C. Johnson (WHO IS NOT ME), alleging that the Thad Cochran campaign in Mississippi bought votes from black voters to defeat Tea Party loon Chris McDaniel. It’s pretty amazing to see the far right uniting to smear Cochran — who is just as far to the right as they are, but now has come to be seen as some kind of RINO by these nutcases.

Blogger Charles C. Johnson of gotnews.com is reporting that Stevie Fielder says the Cochran campaign told him to offer black voters in the Meridian area $15 each to vote for Cochran in the June 24 GOP primary runoff against Chris McDaniel.

Cochran campaign spokesman Jordan Russell called the accusations of illegal vote buying “baseless and false.”

“It comes from a blogger who in the last 24 hours has accused a Mississippi public official of being responsible for an individual’s death and had to retract other outlandish accusations regarding another Mississippi elected official,” Russell said. “The author of this article admits he paid his source for the story.”

According to the Clarion-Ledger, Johnson’s paid source for his BREAKING BOMBSHELL SCOOP, self-proclaimed minister Stevie Fielder, has a “less than stellar” reputation in the area:

Church member Melba Clark, a member of the Lauderdale County Democratic Executive Committee and its former longtime chairman, said she doesn’t believe any vote buying happened.

“Not only do I not believe any vote buying went on, I don’t even know who Mr. Fielder was supposed to have taken to the polls,” Clark said. “I’m not aware of any people that Mr. Fielder took to the polls, or anybody having promised money to people. Yes, I think I would have heard about that.”

“Whenever an election comes around, he makes himself available to whatever party he can get to avail him,” Clark said. “His reputation here is not good, and that’s putting it mildly.”

Markham said: “Let me just say, I wouldn’t do business with him. He calls himself a contractor, doing construction work for people. He’s had some problems with older people, and several people have had to take him to court about not finishing jobs.”

To cap things off, Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell says they’re considering legal action against Johnson and Fielder:

“If I were these two men, who made the claims or wrote the story, I would be talking to a lawyer,” Russell said. “Because we are most definitely talking to ours.”

Couldn’t happen to a crazier or more dishonest wingnut. Charles C. Johnson (WHO IS NOT ME) has a lengthy history of pushing false or exaggerated stories like this, bouncing from one far right propaganda site to another. Here are some of our past posts about this rabid wingnut who is not me:
