S.C. Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom – who derisively referred to former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman as a “friggin’ Mormon” on a voicemail to one of his ex-mistresses – apparently had no problem cashing checks from other Mormon politicians.

Prior to the 2008 “First in the South” presidential primary, Eckstrom received $1,000 from the political action committee of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Hmmmm …

Eckstrom is Presbyterian, although based on his recent scandals it’s pretty clear he doesn’t practice. Also clear? Eckstrom isn’t likely to get any more Mormon money anytime soon.
