Illegal Pro-Cochran Ad Paid for By Central Figure in Fraudulent 2013 Hattiesburg Mayoral Election

Pastor Siggers ad paid for by company he owns with allegedly corrupt sheriff's deputy who was central to last year’s mayoral election being thrown out in court

By Charles C. Johnson

A new pro-Cochran ad was released yesterday by conservative media consultant Rick Shaftan that features Hattiesburg pastor Arthur Siggers of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church. The ad is similar to one previously reported by GotNews.com that ran in Jackson featuring Siggers. Unlike that ad, however, the new ad is not paid for by All Citizens for Mississippi, but a previously unreported group called “Friends of Thad Cochran.”

The ad does not include the legally required disclaimer indicating that it was not paid for by any candidate or candidate’s committee, and the group “Friends of Thad Cochran” is not registered with the State of Mississippi or with the Federal Election Commission.

Mega-lobbyist, former Mississippi governor, and Republican National Committee chair Haley Barbour has come under fire for his role in stealing the results of the Republican Senate primary but it is not the first time he's been involved with shady characters.

Indeed the longtime lobbyist has lobbied for dictatorships and corrupt governments which have stolen elections and enslaved their people, including Equatorial Guinea, Kazakhstan, Eritrea, Bahrain, Gambia, and Thailand. Qatar, where five jihadi terrorists were recently released and where two American citizens remain unjustly jailed, is also a client of Barbour's lobbying firm.
