FITSNews – May 23, 2007 – It’s safe to say that Sic Willie won’t be on the Christmas Card list of Judge Donald W. Beatty, who was elected on the third ballot today by a joint session of the South Carolina General Assembly to become the Palmetto State’s next Supreme Court justice.

“You’ve done more to destroy judicial integrity in this state than anyone I’ve ever met,” Judge Beatty told FITSNews‘ founding editor shortly before winning today’s election.

Ouch … now who the hell are we going to get to fix our parking tickets? Anyway, we’ll have more fallout from today’s “nuclear” Supreme Court vote in the days ahead, but for now we’d just like to remind the Judge that the people who’ve destroyed “judicial integrity” in this state are actually the people who just elected him.
