S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (RINO-Charleston) is accusing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder of hacking his private email account.

“Holder got a hold of my email and it got hacked,” Limehouse told Charleston, S.C. radio host Rocky DiSabato this week. “Eric Holder hacked my email.”

Limehouse – one of the top budget writers in the S.C. House – is one of several candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the first congressional district seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott. The rotund RINO is also one of the most fiscally liberal lawmakers in state government – which may be why he’s looking to pick a fight with the big, bad administration of Barack Obama.

“The country we are living in today is falling apart,” Limehouse added. “We’ve got bad people running it.”

Limehouse claims the hacking incident occurred in connection with the Justice Department’s failed attempt to block South Carolina’s 2011 voter ID law. Last October, a three-judge panel upheld South Carolina’s law – which requires that voters present a valid photo ID prior to casting their ballots.

FITS has consistently maintained that the Palmetto State’s legislation addressed a nonexistent problem. We also objected to the way certain politicians – led by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – fabricated information as part of their efforts to support the law.

“Soon after they took up all my emails trying to find some dirty business – which they didn’t find, by the way … I was hacked,” Limehouse says. “My private email account was hacked after I had to give my email … my private email information and password to the federal government … to the Justice Department.
