SC
FAIR? OR FAVORITISM? We're all for promoting adoption.  In fact we believe support for adoption ought to be a prerequisite among those who claim to be pro-life. Accordingly, we support tax credits for parents who adopt children - especially when those credits reimburse...
CLINTON LOYALIST AMONG CANDIDATES TO REPLACE DISGRACED CHAIRMAN  South Carolina Democratic party chairman Jamie Harrison's name is being floated at the national level as a candidate for chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). In case you missed it, that job...
"MYRTLE BEACH MAFIA" AT IT AGAIN ... Last week we reported exclusively on the corrupt S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT)'s ongoing lobbying efforts in support of the Interstate 73 project. Looks like the SCDOT commission's efforts were part of a much...

AGENCY LOBBYING HARD FOR MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR BOONDOGGLE South Carolina's corrupt transportation "leaders" still desperately want to foist Interstate 73 on dirt poor Palmetto State taxpayers ... even as government's embarrassing inability to do basic maintenance continues to be on display all over the state. How desperate...
"ETHICS" ENTITY OPENS CAMPAIGN FINANCE LOOPHOLE  The notoriously toothless S.C. State Ethics Commission (SCSEC) ruled this week that politicians in the Palmetto State can employ themselves, their relatives and their own companies using political donations. The only requirement?
