Suspension Urged For Stephen Goldfinch

Pressure is building on “Republican” S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell to suspend embattled State Rep. Stephen Goldfinch, a fellow “Republican” from Georgetown, S.C. who has been accused of misrepresenting criminal charges filed against him.

By law (S.C. Code Section 8-13-560), South Carolina legislators charged with felony offenses are required to be suspended from office – and documents associated indicate the charge filed against Goldfinch in relation to an illegal stem cell operation is a felony.

Take a look …

Goldfinch’s involvement in the stem cell scam was first exposed by FITS.  Months later he announced to the media that he was pleading guilty to a misdemeanor related to the scandal.  However, documents obtained by FITS reflect no such plea having ever been entered.

Did Goldfinch misrepresent the seriousness of (and the potential jail sentence associated with) his crime?  And did he lead his colleagues to believe the matter had been resolved?

Two other lawmakers – former S.C. Rep. Thad Viers (a Republican) and Harold Mitchell (a Democrat) – have been suspended in recent years as a result of federal indictments.  Democrats want the same standard applied to Goldfinch.

“Bobby Harrell is going to need Democratic votes to hold onto his Speaker’s position,” one prominent Palmetto Democrat bluntly told FITS.

Goldfinch is battling former S.C. Rep. Vida Miller for his seat in the State House.  Polling shows a tight race – until respondents are informed about Goldfinch’s legal problems and a recent vote to give himself a taxpayer-funded pay raise.

If Goldfinch is convicted of a felony, what will happen to his little toy?

It’ll have to go bye-bye! Then he can throw a hissy fit like TR did and renounce his citizenship because he won’t be able to keep his phallic symbol / submachine gun in the closet anymore….

…and kudos to FITS for digging up the truth about the felony charge. I suppose even 60 Minutes crew (and certainly rest of the dumb MSM) are scratching their heads why they didnt think to look at Goldfinch’s criminal docket. That gentlemen and ladies, is the state of our MSM these days–a big pile of dump, no brains. By the way, 60 Minutes is too slow in this fast-paced world – sarcasm. FITS certainly thinks and acts fast, with integrity.

I am also intrigued by what is taking that long (according to Goldfinch’s tweet) to see some forward motion in Goldfinch’s criminal case…a grand jury perhaps…considering there are other players like Goldfinch’s Israeli partner, the birthing clinics in Conway, CureSource and Caledonia’s clients who purchased the stem cells and organs…MUSC involvement also? Prosecutors have their job cut out for sure if they are serious about justice and demonstrating their elite standards in a widely publicized case. So far, FITS set a very high standard and scored better that everyone, including MSM, DOJ/FBI/FDA. Wonderful for our democracy to have FITS with limited resources strive to shine light on the truth. I humbly suggest the feds follow FITS example and follow the truth.

Goldfinch saga continues…as entertaining as ever. He says that he has not been charged. That lying ass knows very well, being an attorney, that a target of a criminal investigation can be charged through an indictment OR by a instrument in criminal procedure known as “information”. If Goldfinch planned to plead guilty to ‘information’, he absolutely knew whether it was a felony or a misdemeanor…as most of us would. Goldfinch lied through his teeth all this while, blaming it on Dr.Dammai. It takes a special brand of devious mind to come up with such a twisted plot, a sociopath. What do you say Goldfinch?
My greetings to Mike at the Beach on this forum and for his predictions 10 months ago that this district 108 race is going to be quite an entertainment.

Greetings back to you, mi amigo, although your memory is better than mine (I’m doing well to remember crap I said last week). I believe you, though- we’ve known this guy was a jackass ever since he started fishing around for something to do down here.

Yep. But stranger are the ways the DOJ went about with Goldfinch’s case. First, Goldfinch should have been indicted years ago, it appears. Second, if it is a felony charge, why didnt DOJ/FBI/FDA come out and clarify that when Goldfinch was spinning the tissu de mensonges. After all it is public’s right to know the truth, especially when there are clear rules in legislature about the consequences of being charged with felony.
I also strongly suspect that Goldfinch is not alone in this. A person who so blatantly runs his/her mouth like Goldfinch must have the involvement of his immediate family in the scam. Just a strong hunch from years of business experience and dealing with my share of scum. I wonder what treasures are revealed if FBI probes such an angle.
MUSC has also been so quite about Goldfinch, again failure of MUSC leadership (which we all know are a bunch of shitheads)….just overall strangest set of dynamics which, although I am white, is fascinating to think that a white guy (goldfinch) has so many people (literally the entire system seems to be) trying to conceal and diminish his crime but on the other hand imagine if this was person of another race.

Godlfinch doesn’t appear to want to win.. Miller slings barbs at him and he isn’t fighting back. He is toast. Well no big loss, no difference between him and Miller except that pesky little letter after their name. Cue GT SC political digest to tell me how selfish I am..
