Todd Kincannon: Ex-GOP Official Vowed To Make His Wife “Very F*cking Sorry”

POLICE: AUDIO FILE AMONG “TREASURE TROVE” OF EVIDENCE …

|| By FITSNEWS || Sheriff’s deputies in Lexington County, S.C. have obtained extensive documentation of the domestic drama that has engulfed former S.C. “Republican” party official Todd Kincannon and his wife, Ashely Griffith.

And it isn’t pretty …

Kincannon – the self-described “honey badger of American politics” – saw his marital issues explode onto the national stage last week.  Specifically, Lexington police responded to a bizarre incident in which he is accused of threatening Griffith and physically grabbing her so as to prevent her from escaping his vehicle.  According to a police report, Kincannon – whose deliberately provocative social media presence has made him a pariah to the far left – also made threats to kill himself, Griffith and her family.

As a result of this incident, deputies are in process of determining whether to press kidnapping charges against Kincannon – a prominent local attorney.

Kincannon claims he doesn’t remember last week’s incident – citing an “accidental overdose” of the prescription drug Benzonatate (which he says he took to help him deal with an upper respiratory infection).

Of course Griffith told police Kincannon “has made several threats in the past to kill himself, her, and her family” – and that she had preserved recordings of several such threats.

Kincannon has yet to account for that allegation.

Now a source close to the investigation tells FITS that more than forty-eight hours of such recordings exist – as well as photographic evidence of possible domestic abuse sustained by Griffith.

“Its a treasure trove,” the source told FITS.

In one of the clips – obtained exclusively by FITS – Kincannon tells Griffith he will have his “revenge” on her if she leaves him, and that he will make her “very f*cking sorry” if she fails to follow his instructions for improving their marriage.

The profanity-laced clip begins with Kincannon castigating Griffith for not “doing what you’re supposed to f*cking do.”

“Now I’m going to tell you right now – I can’t survive in this f*cking environment that you create with your bad attitude and your unhappy spirit,” Kincannon said. “I’m – I’m sick of it and I’m done with it. And I want to make very clear to you – I don’t give a sh*t about you, or about any of the sh*t in your life. I don’t give a sh*t about all your f*cking divorce threats. You have pushed me so far down the hole that I don’t care any more.”

Wow …

“What I’m telling you is – you are going to by God make my life better than it is,” Kincannon continued. “And you’re going to do the only things that you can do to do that – or else I’m going to make you very f*cking sorry. Because I don’t give a sh*t anymore.”

Kincannon repeats the threat again on the recording – which is essentially a monologue of his thoughts on the current status of his marriage to Griffith.

“I don’t know why you don’t just let the relationship dissolve,” Griffith said at one point in the clip.

“Because I blame you for creating the problems,” Kincannon responded.  “And if the relationship dissolves I will get my revenge.  I wanted something out of this.”

“I got into this marriage with expectations that it would be a thing that it is not,” Kincannon continued.  “And I am telling you right now, you will cure that problem and you will begin to meet my expectations or else you will be very sorry with what happens next.”

Again, wow …

One of Kincannon’s friends – another prominent local attorney in Columbia, S.C. – tells FITS the threats against Griffith have nothing to do with physical violence.

“She knows what that’s referring to,” the attorney told us, adding the recording is “being taken completely out of context if the presumption is that he’s making a threat of bodily harm.”

The attorney added that Kincannon and Griffith have both “sparred” in the past – and that he has preserved evidence of abuse sustained by her hand.

“There are no innocents in this relationship,” the attorney told us.

Additionally, the attorney said Griffith was “not cooperating” with the sheriff’s investigation – and considering a request from Kincannon to amend the statement she provided police last week.

Hmmmmm ….

This website has always liked both Kincannon and Griffith.  They are incredibly smart, talented people – and we hate to see their relationship unravel like this.

Our hope?  That both are able to extricate themselves from what is obviously a toxic relationship without things escalating to a dangerous place …

Live and let live, in other words …

True. I missed the alleged death threats to the family. Still have to wonder what’s going on when the wife is sitting around recording fights with her husband, which, based on the text from that one recording, looks like she possibly tried to start.

Reply
CharlieChan April 1, 2015 at 12:57 pm

Yeah, it’s weird that she would gather evidence to protect her herself just in case her lunatic lawyer husband ever went postal and decided to make her “very f***ing sorry”. What was she thinking? (Obviously this 25 year old trophy wife is smarting than you.)

TroubleBaby April 1, 2015 at 1:41 pm

I think what he’s trying to say that(although I should really let him do that, but I digress) is that it’s strange that someone would claim fear yet sit and build a library of recorded threats/arguments.

It’s hard to sell “fear” when that’s the case, ya know?

I agree with you that it’s “smart” for her to record these rants for proceedings and such, but it kinda destroys any suggestion that there was genuine fear from said threats if there’s a literal library of these recordings. I could understand one, maybe two of said recordings…but if it’s a pattern that tells me she definitely wasn’t afraid.

To Jackies point, people say a lot of shitty things to each other when a marriage is failing, and I’d wager that 50% of the time they don’t mean the things they say. (and this isn’t an endorsement of any such behavior)

womensproblems April 1, 2015 at 10:41 pm

If The victim wants law enforcement or the courts to help, the victim must document the abuse. She will get no help without the documentation.

TroubleBaby April 1, 2015 at 10:43 pm

Wouldn’t it make more sense to leave and be safe rather than risk documentation for court vindication?

CharlieChan April 2, 2015 at 10:05 am

Have you read none of this? “Leave and be safe” wasn’t an option without involving the authorities. Involving the authorities required evidence. It’s really not that hard to understand. I’m amazed by how many men on this forum do backflips of logic to somehow blame the woman.

TroubleBaby April 2, 2015 at 10:34 am

“Have you read none of this? “Leave and be safe” wasn’t an option without involving the authorities.”

Seriously, what the hell are you talking about? Was the above recording made while he was “squeezing her arm”?

No, in fact in the very write up you claim I haven’t read there is the disclosure of 48 hours worth of arguments.

48 HOURS!!!!

Was he pinning her down that entire time?

Look, I’m not defending someone who is clearly an abusive control freak, so don’t get me wrong- but I’m just saying, like almost every fracturing marriage-there is responsibility to go around for the failure and I’m not buying this notion that she was constantly living in fear.

In fact, it seems to me that she was building a case, not in fear for her life.

CharlieChan April 2, 2015 at 1:10 pm

She was building a case BECAUSE she was in fear of her life IF she left. As long as she STAYED she wasn’t afraid of him killing her and her family, but as he threatened to do that if she LEFT, the act of leaving would be the trigger for her fear. Do you understand? In order to leave safely, she needed evidence. Comprende?

TroubleBaby April 2, 2015 at 1:30 pm

” Do you understand? ”

I understand fully. You are an idiot.

She doesn’t need evidence to leave safely. That’s bullshit.

Even further, has her evidence landed him in jail or even produced a TRO? No.

If she was scared, 48 hours worth of recording, which probably took months to create, has done nothing at this point is time to further her safety and if she truly was afraid(which I doubt), all it did was unnecessarily imperil her.

Again, just so we’re clear, this is no defense for Todd Kincannon who is clearly an abusive control freak.

Buz Martin April 2, 2015 at 12:41 am

People blame the women accusing Bill Cosby for having no evidence. Now Ashley is blamed for getting a bunch of it. Seems that abused women, whatever the nature of the abuse, are in a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t situation.

TroubleBaby April 2, 2015 at 10:35 am

I’m not “blaming her” Buz. I think she did the right thing by documenting it.

I just think that it’s preposterous for her to claim that she was in fear.

This is fascinating to watch unfold. It’s obvious that this website has more at stake in this case than just “reporting” and it’s using this forum to communicate with Todd that he can’t win and should walk away and let it go. It looks as if FITS has become the communication tool for Ashely and Todd. Will Todd realize he’s dug too big a hole to worm his way out of? Will Ashely not press kidnapping charges if he signs divorce papers and lets it all go? Tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode of “Days of Their Lives.”

At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. “Isn’t it true,” he bellowed, “that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?”

The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn’t heard the question.

“Isn’t it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?” the lawyer repeated.

The witness still did not respond.

Finally, the judge leaned over and said, “Sir, please answer the question.”

“Oh,” the startled witness said, “I thought he was talking to

The other was a mistake in engaging an attorney in a personal matter, and whom could have been fucking the opposing attorney and billing me for the time (I wished I could have proven that!)

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there..

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’s heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, ‘Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love.. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’

Edna replied, ‘He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry.. How soon can I go home?’

It was one of the most gruesome cases ever to come before the court, and if found guilty, the defendant would spend the rest of life behind bars. The case had not been proceeding well for the defense.
Though there was no direct evidence, the circumstantial evidence was
quite compelling. The only chance the lawyer had was to cast some doubt in the minds of the jurors. His only hope was to attack the testimony of the medical examiner.

Lawyer) “And prior to declaring the victim dead, did you check his pulse?”

Doctor) “No.

Lawyer) “Did you perform CPR?”

Doctor) “No.”

Lawyer) “Did you do anything to determine if the victim was still alive prior to declaring him dead?”

Doctor) “No.”

Lawyer) “Then, Doctor, isn’t it possible that prior to your declaring the victim dead that, in fact he may have been alive, and that it was your negligence that caused the death?”

Doctor) “Aside from the fact that his brain was in a jar on my desk,
I suppose he could have been out practicing law.”

Well criminal charges of this sort will definitely get you suspended or worse.

(c) Action by Disciplinary Counsel. Upon receiving competent evidence that a lawyer has been charged or convicted of a crime, disciplinary counsel shall determine whether the crime involved is a serious crime as defined by Rule 2(aa). If the crime is a serious crime, disciplinary counsel may seek an interim suspension under Rule 17(a) if the lawyer has been charged with a serious crime, and shall seek an interim suspension under Rule 17(a) if the lawyer has been convicted of a serious crime. If the crime is not a serious crime, disciplinary counsel shall process the matter in the same manner as any other information coming to the attention of the Commission.

(aa) Serious Crime: any felony; any lesser crime that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects; or, any crime a necessary element of which, as determined by the statutory or common law definition of the crime, involves interference with the administration of justice, false swearing, misrepresentation, fraud, deceit, bribery, extortion, misappropriation, theft, willful failure to file income tax returns, or an attempt, conspiracy or solicitation of another to commit a serious crime.

(a) Grounds for Discipline. It shall be a ground for discipline for a lawyer to:

(1) violate or attempt to violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 407, SCACR, or any other rules of this jurisdiction regarding professional conduct of lawyers;

(2) engage in conduct violating applicable rules of professional conduct of another jurisdiction;

(4) be convicted of a crime of moral turpitude or a serious crime;

Apologize for the delay in responding. Computer experienced a mid-life crisis.
As for your response, my bad. Meant the State Bar, the duly formed PR entity and attorney facilitator for for lobbying legislators. Am aware Bar Associations are local networking clubs with an occasional pro bono case thrown in.

What sort of response did he expect to his threats? Did he think she would say, “Todd, from this moment on, I’ll follow every instruction and rule you lay down, master.” I predict this is the only marriage he will ever have. Twenty years from now, he will wonder why he threw away the best thing that ever looked his way.

Well, in my case the ex-spouse who filed for divorce to bluff me into walking three paces behind him and called me the night before a child support hearing, whispering over and over “You’re going to lose” and came unglued when someone else sent me roses, etc etc etc , DID find someone to marry him and these days she’s changing his diapers while I live at the beach. Life.

Maybe it’s time to re-calibrate your political compass. Kincannon is a pariah to the far-left, the center-left, the middle, and the center-right. Todd’s remaining supporters are the far-right, reactionary, Christianist, cave-men who would like to drag us back to the dark-ages, and even that crowd is starting to raise an eyebrow at this maniac’s antics.

I hope she gets out alive. He’s a control freak, and he’s armed.

A kid comes home from school with a writing assignment. He asks his father for help. “Dad, can you tell me the difference between potential and reality?”

His father looks up, thoughtfully, and then says, “I’ll demonstrate. Go
ask your mother if she would sleep with George Clooney for a million dollars. Then go ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then come back and tell me what you’ve learned.”

The kid is puzzled, but decides to ask his mother. “Mom, if someone gave you a million dollars, would you sleep with George Clooney?”

“Don’t tell your father, but yes, I would,” she replies.

He then goes to his sister’s room. “Sis, if someone gave you a million
dollars, would you sleep with Brad Pitt?”

She replies, “Omigod! Definitely!”

The kid goes back to his father. “Dad, I think I’ve figured it out.
Potentially, we are sitting on two million dollars, but in reality, we are
living with two sluts

This is a perfect example of the difference between the priorities of men and women, generally. A man’s priority is to have sex with a beautiful lady. A woman’s priority is to impress other women. Generally, they impress other women by having material things but it goes beyond that. Women also covet other women who have a man that is in a position of power (or, in this case, a perceived position of power). Men are willing to overlook certain things when prioritizing, like whining, nagging and dealing with emotional issues to which they cannot relate. Women are able to overlook things as well when they are prioritizing like the fact that their guy is gross and meat necked. If all women were fat and ugly and all men were poor and powerless, humans would die out. So, if a relationship like the one between these people don’t have love and companionship to fall back on, after a while the woman will quit having sex with the man and the man will tell her to get a job. Thus, the things that these folks were willing to overlook in the beginning because of these priorities, they will no longer overlook. If Todd tells Ashely to go out and get a job to supply herself with those things that impress other women, the Ashely’s mentality is “What the hell am I doing with the slob if he can’t satisfy my priority.” If Ashely quits having sex and amps up the whining, nagging and bitchery, then Todd’s mentality is “What the hell am I doing putting up with all this shit if she can’t satisfy my priority.” Lesson to be learned: marriage based on sex, money and perceived prominence alone will fail, Just like this one.

Well, I think you’re generalizing based on a bad sample. To say the priorities of men and women “generally” are so shallow and cynical is a very dark view of human nature. Maybe you should find a new line of work, or a new circle of influence, before your soul is totally blackened. You may be right about this couple, but to say ALL men and women are generally like that is ignorant and insulting.

Reply
staffer April 2, 2015 at 10:32 am

Actually I wasn’t the first to say this, Freud was but my main point was to say that if you don’t have love and companionship to fall back on and you marry for sex, money or power, then your marriage is going to fail. I’m sorry if that insults you. And for the record, when someone says “generally” that is a way of saying that not ALL cases are like that. I very clearly said that it was a generalization, which always has faults. The words “all” and “generally” are contradictory. Look into it.

staffer April 2, 2015 at 10:55 am

Successful long marriages come from the notion that “I love you in spite of” rather than “I love you because.” If a person’s ability to overlook their spouse’s faults is based on power, money or sex they will come to the point where they cannot overlook them. The feelings and priorities that help initiate a relationship will not sustain a long marriage. The hope is that what attracts us to a potential spouse initially will evolve into unconditional love. If it doesn’t evolve and the foundation of the marriage continues to be those things that initially attracted the two, the marriage will likely fail. Men and women have different priorities when they are looking for a mate. If you don’t believe that then you my friend are the ignorant one.

staffer April 2, 2015 at 2:42 pm

*facepalm. Ok good luck with that. And when your spouse divorces you and you decide to represent yourself, remember, you’ll need to be able to argue the merits of your case in the context of the law. You can’t just turn to personal attacks as you’ve done here. You also need to brush up on word meaning so that you don’t contradict yourself. That advice is free.

Republican. Democrat. Libertarian. Socialist sectarian. Politics does not enter in to it. Had this walking shit stain talked to any women like that , in my presence… Well. He’d be getting new dentures.
Eating soft foods only for the rest of his life
If this had been Pelion redneck Johnny talking to his old lady like that, the Pelion man would be in the Gray bar hotel.
How do assholes like kincannon get in the republican or any party
This should be a career killer. This idiot is on the radar. He’s a walking dried load.
I would seek to revoke his lawyers license. In any other real world scenario – talking in such ways is incriminating and should lead to an indictment
I fear for that Griffith girls safety.
This sad sack of psychoses needs to resign, surrender his law license and bag groceries til the end of his sad shitty life.
