Press release: election laws must apply to Republicans too

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Brandon Jones, Director of the Mississippi Democratic Trust, issued the following statement regarding the Mississippi Republican U.S. Senate Primary:

"This election has already provided more than its share of tragic and bizarre stories.  Now, the specter of election fraud has been raised.  The citizens of this state were sold a package of voting laws by leaders who told us that their main concern was election integrity.  These leaders, like Secretary of State Hosemann, now have an opportunity to show that all the talk about protecting the vote wasn't politics as usual.  Because election integrity laws should never be enforced selectively based on party, we call on Secretary Hosemann and local law enforcement officials to treat these allegations with the seriousness they deserve."
