A former Mississippi Congressional candidate, Cobby Williams, was arrested on vote fraud charges.
In the other case, Buckley said Williams allegedly was going door-to-door and registering people to vote and then turning in those registrations to the clerk’s office.
He said Williams registered a woman who is a convicted felon and not eligible to vote.
Buckley said Williams also allegedly falsely registered another person who was ineligible to vote.
Williams ran unsuccessfully in 2012 against incumbent 2nd District Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss.
As is often the case in these situations, there can be little doubt that what Williams was caught doing was just the tip of the iceberg. Williams is a former Canton Democratic Municipal Executive Committee member.
However, Williams left the Democrat party to run for Congress. Which is the likely reason Williams was caught; some liberal operatives turn a blind eye toward fraud when it is done by their own, but not when it is done by an independent.
