A Mississippi Democrat has accused his fellow Democratic Party members of committing election fraud during a recent primary.
Hinds County District 2 Supervisor David Archie says voter fraud impacted the results of a recent Democrat primary.
According to Archie, the alleged election corruption was orchestrated by a Democrat county chairperson.
Archie is contesting the results of the recent election results against challenger Anthony Smith. Archie is claiming that there was voter fraud committed in the Democratic primary election held on Aug. 8.
He is accusing his fellow Democrats of committing a “high-tech election heist with corruption as well as fraud.”
“He lost to Anthony Smith, who, according to results from Hinds County election officials, won by 63% of the vote,” WAPT reported.
Archie said he requested a ballot box review of the results after losing the election.
He claimed that the Hinds County Democratic Party only provided him with the paper ballots.
Archie said that failed to supply him with secondary confirmation measures, such as a voter signature book, digital images of the ballots, or the thumb drives from the voting machines.
He claims the election fraud was orchestrated by the chairperson of the Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee, Jacqueline Amos.
Archie alleges that Amos trashed him in a text message between her and an unnamed person.
“Hey, don’t let them cheat Debroha Dixon out of her election,” the unidentified person reportedly texted Amos.
“She won fair and square.”
Archie alleges Amos answered, “She won.
“But I’m going to f*** David Archie on the site!!!”
Archie made the allegations during a press conference where he claimed to have evidence proving election fraud took place.
“The bottom line is that we have the text, she’s the chairperson, she’s the one that’s responsible,” Archie said.
“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.”
“We have videotape of Jacque Amos going into boxes, bringing in thumb drives, bringing in ballots to be inserted into machines,” Archie told reporters.
“We have pictures of Jacque Amos participating in what we think is fraud as well as corruption.”
Taylor Pedigo, a District 2 resident, said at the press conference, “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.
“This leads me to believe that this needs further investigation.”
Yazoo City resident Cynthia Walker, who participated in the ballot recount, said at the press conference: “I have reason to believe that we don’t know if you got 1,800 voters.
“All we know is you got 1,800 paper ballots.
“Had she left me some books, and I came back to 1,800, had she left me some media sticks, and I came back to 1800, had she left me a tally sheet, I came back to 1,800.
“Had they left us a receiving and a receipt in return form, we could come back to some serial numbers.
“Had they filled out the ballot accounting form, I could go back to 1,800.
“I can’t go anywhere but count those paper ballots.
“That does not tell us anything.”
Archie was defeated by Smith by nearly 1,900 votes in the Democrat primary.
Amos responded to the voter fraud allegation in an email statement that read:
The Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee conducted the August 8th Democratic Primary in keeping with applicable state law.
The Executive Committee has canvassed the returns and certified the results of the August 8th primary.
Those results speak for themselves, as does relevant state law for anyone seeking to contest the certification of the votes duly cast on August 8th.
We understand that one candidate who lost, namely David Archie, has decided to challenge the results of the August 8, 2023, primary.
He has the right to challenge the results.
We stand ready for the challenge and will cooperate however necessary.
Archie is demanding that Amos resign from her position as chair of the Hinds County Democratic Executive Committee.
He has threatened to file criminal charges for meddling with election integrity.
