Chris McDaniel Offers Reward For Proof Of Voter Fraud

Chris McDaniel won't give up the fight against Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) in his run for U.S. Senate.

Cochran won the runoff election by 6,800 votes, but McDaniel insists that voter fraud aided the victory. He's now offering $1,000 to anyone who can provide evidence of misdoing on the June 24th runoff.

"Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign allegedly paid $15 per vote to steal the June 24 Republican primary election," his website claims. "If you have evidence that leads 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, please email it."

McDaniel has also been fundraising off of this accusation, emailing supporters that "we don’t currently have the resources to mount the legal challenge that this case deserves."

He told Fox News' Sean Hannity that "we've already found more than 1,000 examples of that in one county alone."

The race between Tea Party-backed McDaniel and six-term incumbent Cochran was considered to be one of the nastiest in recent history. More than a week after the election, McDaniel has still not conceded.

His search for voter fraud is being promoted by, of course, Sarah Palin.

Cochran is a strong favorite for November's general election, but his campaign hasn't exactly been smooth sailing since the runoff win.

Yesterday, a call with press took a dark turn when someone on the line accused him of "harvesting black votes like black people harvesting cotton."
