CHRIS CORLEY, DOUG BRANNON DO BATTLE OVER REBEL-THEMED HOLIDAY MISSIVE …

S.C. Rep. Chris Corley continues to soak up the earned media in the aftermath of his controversial 2015 Christmas card – which accused “Republicans” who voted in favor of taking down the Confederate flag of betraying their constituents.

Having already enraged fiscally liberal S.C. Speaker of the House Jay Lucas, Corley’s next indignant reaction came courtesy of Upstate, S.C. “Republican” Doug Brannon – a Michigan native who has emerged as a central figure in some recent articles we’ve written related to judicial corruption.

Brannon apparently took none too kindly to Corley’s missive, and responded with a feisty letter telling him where he could put his Christmas card.  Take a look …

Yeah …

We don’t know how much Corley spent on these cards, but he’s getting some ridiculous mileage out of that investment.

The exchange comes as badly divided House “Republicans” are preparing to hold a caucus meeting this week to plot their strategy in advance of the next legislative session – which is scheduled to convene on January 12, 2016.  It also comes as Corley presses for passage of a non-binding referendum allowing voters to have a say on the flag.
