A Charleston-based blog is reporting that former State Sen. Catherine Ceips and former State Rep. Wallace Scarborough were secretly engaged to be married over the Christmas holidays, something we’re really not comfortable commenting on.
Like not even a little bit comfortable.
In fact, you could have held up a doll and asked us to point to where the priest touched us and we’d be infinitely more comfortable talking about that than this.
Anyway, from Jones On Politics:
Reliable state house sources have confirmed that former representative Wallace Scarborough (R-Charleston) is engaged to be married to former state senator Catherine Ceips (R-Beaufort). Why is this news? Well for starters, it was less than a month ago that Wallace Scarborough proclaimed that he and Ceips were only friends. The same tired excuse he had been using since having an extra-marital affair with her in 2006 … the same year Scarborough and Ceips both supported the “sanctity of marriage” amendment in South Carolina.
Even though Ceips has called us “pornographers” and accused our founding editor of being a heroin addict, we honestly bear her no ill will. We even dropped our lawsuit against her after she got her ass handed to her in the 2008 Republican primary election down in Beaufort County.
Oh, and after Sic Willie told us that he may have accidentally done a speedball once. Or maybe twice. Whoops.
As for Scarborough, his pending election appeal will be heard this January by the S.C. House of Representatives.
Scarborough lost to Democrat Anne Peterson Hutto by 221 votes in a hotly-contested race for House District 115 (James Island and Folly Beach) back on November 4.
Since then, Scarborough has alleged that as many as 365 votes were cast illegally, and has twice challenged the validity of the official results.
