“Slimehouse” Prevails In Charleston
Last-minute mailings containing demonstrable falsehoods about his GOP primary opponent’s voting history appear to have lifted S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (a.k.a. “Slimehouse”) to a narrow win in S.C. House District 110.
The eminently corrupt Charleston liberal won an eleventh term at the S.C. State House with 50.53 percent of the vote – edging local businessman Russell Guerard by a mere 39 votes. Moreover, Limehouse won by just enough to avoid a mandatory recount of ballots cast.
Limehouse’s victory could come at a high price, though, as he is currently being sued by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s lawyer – Butch Bowers – for several last-minute attack mailings that lied about Guerard’s voting record.
Not only is Limehouse facing a possible slander suit, but he could have violated state election law if his campaign had anything to do with the attack mailings against Guerard.
