U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) will travel to Charleston, S.C. next week to address a private gathering of Republican donors.

Gohmert – described by our sources in the Lone Star State as a “grassroots favorite” – will discuss “the way forward after the shutdown and the crisis in GOP leadership.” Which should be pretty interesting because as far as we’re concerned the only way forward for any politician wearing an “R” behind their name is self-immolation.

(Pause for those educated in South Carolina’s government-run schools to look up that word …)

Anyway, Gohmert is attending “The Charleston Meeting,” an invitation-only event organized by GOP gadfly Mallory Factor.

Also speaking? S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis, whose battle with the corrupt, money-losing S.C. Retirement System Investment Commission (SCRSIC) rages on.
