December 3, 2015–Senator Melanie Sojourner’s campaign today released the following statement regarding the filing of an election challenge with the Mississippi State Senate on Wednesday afternoon:
“From the beginning, Senator Sojourner has taken very seriously the allegations of criminal election fraud in District 37. She and many volunteers and supporters have worked hard to inspect the ballots in Franklin and Adams County over the past few weeks to find the truth. As a result, Senator Sojourner officially filed with the Mississippi Senate on Wednesday what can only be described as a very credible and compelling list of infractions in the form of an election challenge. We believe this clearly shows that had it not been for criminal voter fraud Senator Sojourner would have been re-elected as Senator for District 37.
“Senator Sojourner will focus over the next month on preparing this overwhelming body of evidence: to present to a senate committee that will be appointed to hear this case in January. We believe these committee members will find the evidence supports providing the relief set forth in the petition.”
