New lawsuit threatens establishment Republicans and Democrats in Mississippi

If things were bad between Tea Party activists and the Mississippi Republican establishment before last Tuesday's Senate primary runoff, it's about to get a lot uglier.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News posted a story based on claims of a black Mississippi pastor who alleged being paid by the Cochran campaign to round-up Democratic voters who were then paid a nominal sum for their ballots.

A lawsuit filed Tuesday by True the Vote, the Tea Party nonprofit at the center of the IRS targeting scandal, could force the facts about voting in the run-off out into the open.

"All we are asking is that the Mississippi State Republican Party follow the law; allow their designated country representatives to inspect the poll books and ballots, give them the review time they are permitted by law and allow them to uphold their responsibility, True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said in a statement announcing the lawsuit.
