A Democrat is saying that the election he was in was rigged, by another Democrat.
A county supervisor in Jackson, Mississippi, alleges that the county’s principal Democratic Party representative impeded his re-election campaign, prompting him to demand her resignation.
District 2 Supervisor David Archie formally requested the resignation of Jacqueline Amos, Chair of the Democratic Executive Committee, on Thursday. Supervisor Archie alleges that he possesses information indicating that Ms. Amos engaged in misconduct by manipulating the outcomes of the Democratic Primary, with the intention of securing victory for his opponent, Anthony Smith.
The individual asserts their intention to communicate with the state and national Democratic Parties, urging the resignation of both the subject in question and their secretary. Additionally, he is contesting the election results through the county’s executive committee.
“There’s a lot of fraud going on in Hinds County politics,” Archie accused. “But this time, it couldn’t have happened to a better candidate – a sitting Hinds County supervisor.”
On Thursday afternoon, Archie conducted a press conference at the headquarters of the Hinds County Election Commission. The briefing is being conducted many weeks after to Archie’s loss to Smith in the Democratic primary, with a margin of approximately 1,900 votes.
“We have videotape of Jacquie Amos going into boxes, bringing in thumb drives, bringing in ballots to be inserted into machines,” Archie alleged. “We have pictures of Jacquie Amos participating in what we think is fraud, as well as corruption.”
Archie furnished journalists with a screen grab of a text message, purportedly originating from Amos, in order to substantiate his assertions.
The conversation exhibits an exchange of messages between Amos and an unidentified individual saying to not allow “them cheat Deborah Dixon out of her election. She won fair and square.”
Amos purportedly asserts that Dixon emerged as the victor and that she was “f—ing David Archie on site.”
“The bottom line is that we have the text, she’s the chairperson, she’s the one that’s responsible,” Archie asserted. “She must be impartial to any and all elections here in Hinds County and this does not speak that she was being impartial to an election.”
Amos provided a written comment via email to news reporters. “The Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee conducted the August 8 Democratic Primary in keeping with applicable state law,” the email read. “The executive committee has canvassed the returns and certified the results of the August 8 primary. Those results speak for themselves.”
Archie was accompanied by a number of supporters, among them Taylor Pedigo, a resident of District 2, who also expressed doubts regarding the accuracy of the findings.
“I was watching the election numbers come in and immediately I knew that something funny was going on, that this man that I had never heard of, that I had never seen a yard sign of… came out the gate with a huge lead,” Pedigo said. “This leads me to believe that this needs further investigation.”
Cynthia Walker, a citizen of Yazoo City, provided assistance to Archie in conducting a recount of his ballot.
According to her statement, the voting machines utilized by the county incorporate multiple measures aimed at guaranteeing the verifiability of the results. Nevertheless, she asserts that the majority of such components were not utilized during the primary elections held on August 8th.
One of the protective measures implemented involves the utilization of paper ballots, which are scanned upon submission. In addition, the machines are equipped with a machine tape that accurately tallies the number of paper ballots that have been cast. Furthermore, media sticks are utilized to record the aggregate number of votes received by each candidate in every race featured on the ballot.
“I stand before you to tell you 26 out of 26 precincts did not include the tapes,” Walker alleged. “We don’t know how many votes took place because all we have are the paper ballots.”
In the meantime, Walker informed the press that the storage of the “machine’s media sticks should have been” secured within the confines of the Hinds County Circuit Clerk’s Office. However, they were instead returned to the headquarters of the election commission.
“They were here in this building with an election commissioner, Mr. Clark,” she further accused. “He advises me that he had the right to be involved with the election. The law does not dictate that he’s the custodial person of anything. Those items are to be locked in Mr. Zack’s vault.”
According to WLBT 3 News, “Zack is Circuit Clerk Zack Wallace. He was not immediately available for comment. Clark is Jermal Clark, the election commissioner for Hinds County District Three. Clark declined to comment at this time.”
“Amos’ statement did not respond to the concerns raised by Walker.”
Jocelyn Amos, the sibling of Jacquie, was present at the press conference and expressed that Archie was unable to acknowledge the outcomes.
“David lost the election because the people wanted someone better, someone new,” she proclaimed. “I voted for him. But the people, they spoke. Not Jacquie Amos. Jackson did.”
And Democrats say there can’t be election tampering. Imagine this happening on a national level. Archie better watch out or he Democrats may indict him like they did Trump.
