Floyd Nicholson (D-Greenwood) and State Rep. Samuel Rivers (R-Goose Creek) – were implicated in assault cases, although the charge against Nicholson was later dismissed.

John Osborne – a bare-knuckle political operative who has been linked to both Democratic and “Republican” candidates in the past – tweeted out charges filed against twenty-one lawmakers shortly after his grandmother passed away on Thursday evening.

“That was for my Grandmother who always wanted me to do something right,” Osborne wrote shortly after his social media docu-drop, copying reporters at FITSNews, The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper and The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier .

Some of Osborne’s tweets referenced stories previously covered by this website – including the serious tax issues revolving around S.C. Sen. Karl Allen (D-Greenville) or the disastrous personal financial history of S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg).
