The Jean Toal Parking Experience
CHIEF JUSTICE’S VEHICULAR MISADVENTURES CONTINUE
The most dangerous place in South Carolina isn’t the violence-prone Five Points area of the state capital. Or the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site. Or the G-Vegas “hood.” Or the space between S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley and a national television camera.
The most dangerous place in South Carolina is anywhere within a 1,000-yard radius of the maroon Honda Odyssey belonging to S.C. Chief Justice Jean Toal.
We’ve long known that Toal can’t drive (especially after knocking back a few adult beverages at her favorite downtown Columbia, S.C. bar), but it turns out she can’t park either …
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this image provided to us this week by one of our intrepid readers …

According to our sources, Toal had some business to attend to at the Wells Fargo Bank located on Hampton Street in downtown Columbia, S.C. on Thursday afternoon – but no parking places were available.
Rather than wait for a spot to open up, Toal did what any powerful state government official in South Carolina would do … which is to say “whatever she wanted.”
Sounds a lot like how she approaches her official capacities, doesn’t it?
“Notice how her ‘drunkwagen’ is blocking at least half of the driveway leading to the Wells Fargo parking lot, not to mention the solid yellow curb,” our source observed. ”Something tells me if a ‘lowly citizen’ did this it would be towed immediately. I guess some feel entitled.”
Some do indeed, dear friend … some do indeed.
