“REPUBLICAN” SPEAKER VOWS RETRIBUTION … 

Fiscally liberal S.C. Speaker of the House Jay Lucas is said to be livid over a Confederate-themed Christmas card distributed last week by S.C. Rep. Chris Corley.  Sources close to the “Republican” leader tell us he took Corley’s controversial mailing as a “personal affront” and a “challenge to his leadership.”

“The Speaker was very upset,” a lawmaker close to Lucas told us. “This was sent to embarrass him – to call into question his integrity.”

In fact Corley may suffer retribution from Lucas as a result of the mailing – which accused GOP leaders of betraying their constituents during the debate to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the S.C. State House.

“I see a committee reassignment in his future,” the lawmaker told us.

Corley currently serves as a member of the House’s agriculture, natural resources and environmental affairs committee … although his days on that panel could be numbered.
