Hugh Leatherman – a big spending, infinitely corrupt “former” Democrat from Florence, S.C. – has reached the apex of his power over the people of the Palmetto State. In what his dwindling opponents described as a mafia-style “hit,” the diminutive leader was elected president of the State Senate last week – adding this title to his chairmanship of the chamber’s influential finance committee and his seats on numerous powerful state financial boards.buy adipex no prescription

South Carolina is a state known for the longevity of its political leaders (most notably former U.S. Senators Strom Thurmond and Fritz Hollings). And the consensus is that Leatherman will seek – and win – reelection to his State Senate seat in 2016.buy ativan online no prescription
