A conservative election-watching organization has filed a motion for a restraining order against the Mississippi Republican Party, declaring it has evidence of tampering in runoff records.

True the Vote, which filed the motion with the Jackson Division of the U.S. District Court on Wednesday, claims it has “dozens of full detailed affidavit reports” detailing incidences of vote tampering. The alleged misconduct includes “destruction of voters’ absentee ballot applications and mandatory envelopes, illegal alteration of poll books, cross-over and double voting, absentee ballots marked ‘Accepted’ but unopened.”

“Defendant county commissioners have continued to violate federal law by preventing access to election records. Now, we think we know why,” True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht said in a statement.

“If the affidavits we now have regarding the destruction of election documents and other similarly stunning findings are true, then no Mississippian, no American, can trust the results of this election.”

Mississippi GOP Chairman Joe Nosef dismissed the complaint, saying in a statement that the group “continues in its attempts to make a mockery of our legal system.”

“While their legal filings literally make no claim at all against the MSGOP, their public statements indicate otherwise in an effort to mislead Mississippi voters,” he said.

Nosef mentioned True the Vote’s initial lawsuit against the Mississippi secretary of State and the Mississippi GOP, which called for immediate access to unredacted election records, as further evidence of its “mockery.”

He also said the state party now plans to take action against the group.

“We will not only defend ourselves but will seek sanctions against every single plaintiff because of this frivolous litigation brought against the MSGOP,” Nosef said.

Though Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) was declared winner of the race two weeks ago, leading by 7,667 votes, his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, has not conceded and has been collecting evidence to challenge the results of the election in court.

The ongoing saga has drawn the attention and resources of a number of national conservative figures and groups supportive of McDaniel. The Senate Conservatives Fund contributed $70,000 to his legal fund to contest the results earlier this week, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for an investigation into the election.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the Missouri Republican Party called on Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to create a task force to investigate what he labeled “racially divisive ads and robocalls,” which he said he was concerned were connected to Republican National Committee member Henry Barbour.

  1. How the RNC Screwed Us All:
    How the RNC has screwed us all
    By Garnet92 | January 8, 2014 | 2014 Election, CONGRESS:, Consent Decree of 1982, RINOs
    Are you aware of the 1982 Consent Decree between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC)?

    If you’re not, don’t be alarmed, most others don’t know about it either. Even if you’re a political junkie, it’s unlikely that you’ve been aware of the Consent Decree and what it means to voters – particularly Republican voters.

    So you might say, I sometimes vote Republican, so what’s that mean to me?

    It means that many well-informed, politically active Republicans (like you, perhaps?) could have their votes cancelled out by democrat voter fraud and, thanks to the RNC; our hands are tied to stop it.

    While that may sound like some kind of conspiracy nonsense, it’s not, and we’ve got the evidence here. It just hasn’t been exposed as widely as it deserves. Essentially, the RNC agreed, by signing that Consent Decree, to limit our ability to compete on equal footing with the democrats.

    Here’s how the whole debacle started: during the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the DNC and the New Jersey Democratic State Committee (DSC) brought an action against the RNC and the New Jersey Republican State Committee (RSC) in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey accusing them of discrimination against minority voters.

    The RNC (and RSC) were accused of “voter caging” and other lesser misdeeds. The RNC (and RSC) allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and then, when postcards were returned as undeliverable, they included those individuals on a list of voters to challenge at the polls.
