We’re all about mercilessly bashing S.C. legislators around here, but one lawmaker we’ll probably twice about slamming is newly-elected S.C. Rep. Andy Patrick.

According to his legislative bio, Patrick spent ten years as a special agent with the U.S. Secret Service from 1997-07.

With the support of S.C. Sen. Tom Davis, Patrick decisively defeated incumbent Rep. Richard Chalk in the Republican primary this June – one example of the vulnerability of RINO incumbents that the S.C. Tea Party movement utterly failed to take advantage of …

Unfortunately, Patrick is 0-for-1 as a lawmaker, casting his first vote for fiscally liberal S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell.

Ouch!

What happened to jumping in front of the bullet to save your bosses, dude?
