GOP Operatives Call Republicans Voters 'Klansmen'

Should there be repercussions when Republican candidates call their own voters and supporters Klansmen to entice Democrats to illegally cross-over and vote for them in GOP primaries?

(Red State) It was the Republicans in Washington and their allies in Mississippi who distributed fliers to Democrats in Mississippi calling conservatives racists, klansmen, Nazis, etc. It was a concerted effort by the GOP to beat their own base at any cost.

And here’s the kicker — there will be no consequence if they have their way. That begs the question of whether there should be. Should the Republican establishment in Washington get away with tarring its own voters as racists? Should the Republican establishment in Washington get away with comparing its own base to Klansmen?

If there is no penalty for doing so, they will keep doing it. If there is no consequence, they will attack their own base to preserve their power. They will learn no lesson. In fact, some of you may want to donate to Travis Childers, Thad Cochran’s Democrat opponent. I cannot say that I blame you.

  1. It is not "illegal". In Mississippi, as in other states, it is legal to vote in the primary of your choice.

    1. Anyone can vote in an open primary, but I don't believe all states offer open primaries.

  2. It may not be illegal, but they can only vote in one primary, not both and they are supposed to be required to vote for that person in the general election.

  3. If a Democrat voted in the primary as a Democrat; it is illegal for them to vote in a Republican runoff. If they do so they have broken the law and should be prosecuted for voter fraud.


  5. So it is okay to pay democrats to come out to vote for the incumbent? That is some dirty dealings. And I am sure many of the ones that voted in the run off also voted in their original primary! TAlk about buying your vote. I didn't know peoples votes were for sale!
