#CHARMAGEDDON INVADES LEXINGTON COUNTY …
By FITSNEWS || So there’s a story in The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier this week involving the founding editor of this website – Will Folks – and independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel (a guy this website has spent a lot of ink supporting).
According to the report, Ravenel allegedly sent a series of threatening text messages to Folks on Sunday evening after the blogger refused to return his phone calls. In one of the messages, the Lowcountry businessman reportedly vowed to put Folks and his family “in a trailer within a year.”
Never a dull moment in this state, huh?
Lexington County Sheriff’s Department (LCSD) deputies followed up an incident report related to the harassement with a phone call to Ravenel advising him that he was to refrain from further contact with Folks.
“It hurts me that his message threatened to put me in a single-wide trailer,” Folks said in a statement. “I’ve got a big family. The considerate thing would have been to threaten to put me in a double-wide.”
Folks played Ravenel’s political consultant in a cameo appearance on the reality television show Southern Charm.
“I’m not a consultant but I play one on TV,” Folks is fond of saying. “And I’m not a reporter but I play one on the Internet.”
For those of you keeping score at home, our most recent story on Ravenel’s Senate bid can be found HERE.
Ravenel told the Associated Press on Sunday he was “reassessing” his candidacy – wondering whether it was a “good investment.”
That’s a legitimate question. After polling as high as 15 percent in multiple internal surveys two months ago, Ravenel registered only eight percent support in a Winthrop University poll released this week.
Both of you look ridiculous.
This Website is clearly the Jerry Springer of SC politics. No body will take anything seriously on this site from here on out. Who would want to advertise on this site?
yeah all the hits, all the big political exclusives we keep breaking … I wonder why. it’s CRAZY people would go where the audience is!!!
Will, you are like me (Howard), people may love you or hate you but both are OK because they are drawn to come back and read the stories. In the end, you win!
Even Jerry Springer had a right a lot of times. We should all be thankful Will can air the dirty laundry of the pols ruling over us.
*had it right
Jerry Springer of SC politics? Cool. Is there a chair around here I can throw?
The tests are back Smirks…..and you ARE the father of Grand Tango!
Read it and weep! *hands Smirks some random papers*
Chair to be thrown….? Hmm….I think a coach from Indiana has already got dibs on that “stunt”..!!
+10 points and a lazy boy lounger …
How about we just throw our visors?
+ 10 points and a “Spurrier and Feathers” edition
—– wasn’t that Geraldo who got his nose smashed?
Yes, it was, shame they didn’t finish the job…
That was before he joined the racists on Fox.
Was he still Jerry Rivers then.
Bring back the babes flashing they titties. The flashier and trashier the babes, the better (as long as they are hot.)
That was a true Springeresque aspect of the site.
Made the crowd go “WILL-LEE, WILL-LEE, WILL-LEE!”
I would advertise on this site. Makes more sense than any other SC media I can think of.
Let’s talk again Whit!
Yeah, maybe, but Sic is much funnier about it.
As I said a few weeks back, hell hath no fury like a Folks scorned. Poor Will, duped by Hollywood Tommy.
Put you in a trailer? That’s pretty harsh. What if you end up being GrandTango’s neighbor? I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemies.
There are only nine lots left on Bub Schumpert Road. Six are within wafting odor from the GrandTurnip’s lair (that eliminates them). Three lots are each large enough to accommodate two double-wide homes, one six-car garage, two workshops, two boat sheds, and one helipad. Good Luck, Will…..
There are 5 levels of drinking – 6 if you live in a trailer park.
Really, you two make Myrtle Manor look like Captain Kangaroo.
+2 for you!
Next time on Southern Charm: Folks calls the Cops, T-Rav threatens an eviction and Katherine plays with baby-Rav.
“I’ve got a big family. The considerate thing would have been to threaten to put me in a double-wide.”
LOL! Very good.
There’s nothing more scathing and dismissive to a prick than making fun of his threats.
T-Rav’s a self absorbed twat that doesn’t like hearing the truth. You’ll find better friends, as if you have time outside that nice family anyway.
There’s nothing more scathing and dismissive to a prick than making fun of his threats.
Ignoring him is even worse.
I always love the schizophrenic posts from Folks.
You’re both insane
inane, the word is inane.
I thought ennui was the word.
The bird is the word.
I’m guessing the genesis of this was the posting, and subsequent removal of T-Rav’s ridiculous “ad” with Whitney.
And Fits..you called the cops? Wow. Why?
I’m a bit surprised by that too, I figured Will could kick T-Rav’s ass pretty easily. Maybe T-Rav is back on coke and running around with guns or somethings.
Care to ask FOlks where his screen shots are of his “text” trail …?
Boomerang 101…….”delay of game flag” 10 yard penalty
There’s a “memoir” on its way; Its an addendum to the book.
Great re-tort….. + 10 points and a Barnes and Noble gift card
I want to know the reason Will refused to return the calls.
***…..meanwhile, over in the Nancy Mace horse barn…****
Nancy Mace: ” Looks like we need to make a trip to the feed store on Monday afternoon…”
James Clyburn Intern: ” Geez…Nancy, have you seen this article on Fits…?”
Nancy: (Looking at a smartphone while scrolling down…) “..Ha…..gotta luv the banjo being picked by the Graham “squad”…! ” (eyeroll)
Ed the Talking “Horse”: “Yep,…….dare to ask yourself the question of WHO was texting Lindsey Graham at the same time ol’ Wil was getting a blast of “Ravenel-ous”…? Isn’t that time of night BEDTIME for “BonzO”…?”
Nancy Mace: “Hmm….wonder what time in the morning it is for an ISIS informant…?”
James Clyburn Intern: “God…I sure hope Clyburn read the same text Graham got…!! ”
Boomerang 101, 404, 901…….
Did uh Jim uh Clyburn uh suddenly uh get uh his uh speech uh impediment uh fixed?
Is that Jim Clyburn or Teddy Hefner?
Your attorney is Sen. Tom Davis? Cool!
“Lexington County Sheriff’s Department (LCSD) deputies followed up an incident report related to the harassement with a phone call to Ravenel advising him that he was to refrain from further contact with Folks.”
So did they write it up as a lovers spat?
Kind of like Eckstrom and Payne…
Peeler and Gulledge….
Lexington County has it all, meth, adultery, crooked politicians, incompetent lying Governor, dumbass Congressman, indicted Sheriff, a host of pathetic Mayors, illegal gambling, cock fighting. What more could we ask for?
A TV show following them all around?
Faggoty little trust-fund man-boys always have to blame someone else when things don’t work out.
Can we change T-Rav’s nickname to Low-T? Me thinks the man is running low on cash, testosterone and things to do now that he can’t own a gun or really run for the Senate anymore.
Plus he is from the Low Country. It might be time for Low T to re-image himself and this campaign fiasco would be a good new beginning.
LOL! A real live “lover’s quarrel.”
Will this exceed Richard and Kelly? Mark and Jenny?
First Mace, then Felonious Punk…
You REALLY have to wonder if those who have ads appearing on this page, realize the intelligence, and class level of the FITS worshiper.
What’s great about the Internet is the freedom (until the Democrats take that)…but your ad can run anywhere when you buy online advertising, even FITS page… Is that “a good investment” to quote Ravenel….??..
FITS actually gives us more credible, and non-sleazy Websites, a bad name – except that our readers know better of us. So stay tuned, if you feel you are dipping your ad dollars in the toilet, here. SCPSD may have something of VALUE soon…(;
“You REALLY have to wonder if those who have ads appearing on this page,
realize the intelligence, and class level of the FITS worshiper.”
Hell you’re here more than anyone else.
OK, I confess to being a little on the slow side today so before someone hits me with that, yeah, I didn’t get much sleep this weekend and no, that was not a good thing.
That out of the way, did this happen or is it some bs from the legacy media trying to heap dung on T-Rav and his supporter? What’s the story, Will?
The comment about at least putting them in a double-wide did sound like some of Will’s wit, I have to admit.
Maybe you should not take treats from a know drug dealer so lightly. He may still have connections with the cartel.
“…Ravenel told the Associated Press on Sunday he was “reassessing” his candidacy – wondering whether it was a “good investment…”
“I think spending money on the campaign for a convicted drug dealer, drug dealer, FEC regulation violator who is also a baby daddy and “reality TV star” was an excellent idea…” -said no one, ever…
No worse than your idea to cast your vote for Haley
I’ll admit it isn’t the best choice and I’m having second thoughts but it’s probably to late for me to start a “write in campaign” but you know what, what the Hell – VOTE COLONEL FOR GOOBERNOR – WRITE IT IN!
Why not support my candidacy? I’ll tell you what you want to hear, *and* provide comic relief!
“YOU AND WE TAKE IT TO THE MAX”
lessee… blow on one hand, political ads on the other, which will it be?
The Republicans have been running criminals since their inception, why not go public and see if honesty pays?
Something about rocks and glass houses comes to mind here.
Conservatives appreciate honesty – even while covered in shards of glass.
Okay boys, shake hands and go back to playing whatever the fuck you two were playing.
T-Rav is just now assessing whether or not it was a good investment? His highest numbers were 15%… and that ain’t quite good enough even in South Carolina.
Doesn’t matter a bit if this makes Will look ridiculous. He’s been there before, and it didn’t stop him. He still breaks more important stories on polls on the state level mired in corruption, wasting public money, violations of public trust, etc., than anybody. Not being a traditional journalist is not a mark against him. It’s what makes what he does possible.
He needs to bring back the tits, ass, and tunage, though. Dammit.
LMAO!!!!Just like the The Sun News in Myrtle Beach and reporter David Wren ‘broke’ those big stories on corruption etc…..and got sued for defamation by a public figure, losing and a $600,000 judgement against both of em.
Anybody that takes advice from you is a fuckin idiot.
How much has Kelley collected on that, btw?
ZIP! That’s how much. And that’s all he’ll ever collect. One of the faulties jury verdicts in history, ripe for an appeal in favor of Wrenn, TSN and McClatchy. Which would be a major victory for true investigative reporting. Which your kind despises, of course.
True investigative reporting? Me despises? Na.
Problem I see from journalists and reporters today is they are more interested in destroying public officials,individuals and their families than pursuing the facts and letting the facts take them to the truth.
No such thing as “true” investigative reporting anymore as the facts no longer matter.
Now keep patting Will on the back and stoking his ego-just like you did Wren on TSN while continuing with your faux praises and ridiculous bizzare and conspiratorial bullshit.
Nothing will change.When the shit hits the fan ole Buz will crawl right back into the sewer screaming his indignation and protests from a far about cover-ups and the alleged, crooked judicial system that has made him the laughingstock of Horry County.
And being a laughing-stock is bad for a comedian HOW exactly?
Show me evidence that Will has ever taken my advice on anything, numbnuts.
My guess is he is to smart to do such.This appears to be a pretty successful ‘gig’ for him.
I seem to recall that Fits reported on Tom Rice’s wife being upset or threatened by you and apparently threatening to involve law enforcement? Other than that I don’t recall Fits reporting on any of your imagined , bizzaro escapees or theories.
Please correct me if I am wrong. :-)
Two bitches fighting. People stop to gawk, but nobody really gives a shit. Both are irrelevant, and despite whatever money they may have, classless trailer trash.
T-Rav might be irrelevant, but we both know Sic Willie is not…he has busted many stories open in regard to pol malfeasance. It’s not even debatable.
Looks like Ike and Tina are splitsville….
Ravenel….more criminal than Harrell
….more narcissistic than Leatherman
…..more nutty than Sanford
….more disgusting than the Peelers
….more immature than Bauer
….more irresponsible than Haley
….more sickening than Viers
….more immoral than Vick
….more high than the whiff of a fart on Mt Olympus
Ravenel, where more = less
More of an American than Graham….There I fixed it.
I thought he was going to renounce his citizenship?
I wish Lindsey would. Then, maybe that is why he seems to have more respect for non-citizens of the USA than for citizens.
Yep! I was going to say, “… and still a damn sight better candidate than Lindsey Graham.”
What’s worse – stealing from your constituents and conspiring to escape detection, or recreational drug use?
…more of a perv than Eckstrom
My God, how much more entertaining can this tailspin get?! Of course, it could all be manufactured drama designed for pageviews / analytics, but even THAT would be entertaining! It’s just a matter of time now…
Does this all mean that Folks will make another appearance on Southern Charm? Maybe Jerry Springer.
Appears to me Sanford and Haley are the only two “adults” left in the room? :-)
Just a ploy to drum up tv ratings. Well played, Bravo…well played!
“According to the report” “allegedly sent” what’s with the weasel words? Don’t you know whether or not you received these messages? Why don’t you print them?
It is not Will’s fault. Thomas should have gone after the Tea Party and Millennials. I suggest a 4 day golf retreat in Denver to work out the issues. The issue I have is Ravenel’s campaign manager. If he had made a clean break from “Southern Charm” chances are he would not be perceived by me to be content providing for the tv program. The felony falls flat for me, but the show’s connections, his campaign staff, and what I read in the newspapers really told me he was not serious.
Fits, don’t worry LCSO has Jay Koon on loan from Town of Lex. he is more retarded than Danny. A little bird told me he plans to run for Sheriff. If that happens you will have plenty of newsworthy articles. Trust me, that guy can run any good operation straight into the ground. He’s the true definition of a town clown.
you mean going from a single wide to double wide?
