Lauderdale County, Miss. One of the most incendiary charges made following Mississippi’s U.S. Senate runoff in June was that Sen. Thad Cochran’s campaign participated in paying for black votes.
Cochran defeated state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who led a 3-person ballot in the first GOP Primary.
Now the blogger who reported that story has been commanded to appear in Lauderdale County toanswer questions from a grand jury.
A subpoena was issued for California conservative blogger Charles C. Johnson. He tweeted a picture of the summons Sunday, despite the clause that states “you are not to disclose the existence of this subpoena”.
According to Johnson’s Twitter account, he took the picture down on advice of counsel.
