Democrat Operative Working for Thad Cochran

Well, well, well.

Isn’t this interesting.

Mississippi’s Clarion Ledger headlines the following:

Democrat says he’s leading black GOTV effort for Cochran

The paper goes on to report:

A Democratic political operative says he is working with Mississippi Conservatives PAC to drum up votes for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran.

James “Scooby Doo” Warren said he has put together a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) plan and is “putting it in place across the whole state.” Warren said he is not working with the Cochran campaign itself but for the PAC and Bishop Ronnie Crudup Sr.

Crudup is the pastor at New Horizon Church, which shares an address and chief financial officer with a newly formed super PAC that ran print advertising in the primary supporting Cochran.When asked if he was getting any blow back for working in a Republican primary, Warren said he “got all that taken care of on the front end.”

“I called D.C. and told them what was going on with the tea party,” Warren said. “But I can’t do anything after the 24th because I’m a Democrat… Whoever wins will have to deal with me in November.”

He would not say who he called in D.C.…

Henry Barbour, who heads Mississippi Conservatives PAC, could not be immediately be reached for comment.

The story also quotes Rickey Cole, the chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party as saying:

“Large sums of cash are being passed around,” Cole said in the Facebook message. “These guys are old-school ‘walking around money’ vote buyers. It is happening in Hinds County, but they are trying to move black voters in the Delta, adams (sic), jefferson (sic), and claiborne (sic) too.”

So in other words? It isn’t just the GOP Establishment that’s at work trying to save Thad Cochran from a Tea Party-supported defeat by Chris McDaniel. The GOP has enlisted the Democrats and “Scooby-doo.” But not to worry. Scooby-doo “called DC” to clear it.

You can’t make it up.
