JUST HOW BAD DOES SCANDAL-SCARRED HOUSE SPEAKER NEED THIS WOMAN’S VOTE?
Not content with making a minor down payment on his political future … S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell is going “all in” when it comes to buying off one of his loyal subordinates (a lawmaker whose committee will soon decide whether it should investigate Harrell’s recent campaign finance scandal).
Harrell’s Palmetto Leadership Council – a political action committee that recently ran a mail piece on behalf of embattled S.C. Rep. Joan Brady (RINO-Richland) – is now reportedly spending big bucks to run a television ad on Brady’s behalf. FITS has learned that Harrell’s PAC has purchased television time on at least one station in the Columbia, S.C. television market in an effort to boost Brady’s electoral prospects against Democrat Beth Bernstein.
Why is this so shady? Glad you asked …
This is nothing but “protection money,” people. Harrell is bribing one of his future judges with a major media buy … hoping that her committee will extend to him the same whitewashing service it provided earlier this year to S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.
