LOCAL TAX HIKE, STATE HOUSE RACE UP FOR GRABS

Chronic voting machine malfunctions – and the long lines those malfunctions produced – have complicated election returns in Richland County, S.C.

Hanging in the balance?  The fate of a proposed sales tax increase and the outcome of one of the few competitive races for a seat in the S.C. General Assembly.

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Associated Press erroneously reported that Democrat Joe McCulloch had defeated Republican Kirkman Finlay by a 53-47 percent margin with “100 percent” of precincts reporting in Richland County.

Take a look …

That report is inaccurate, however, as there are at least four precincts – Republican-heavy precincts, we’re told – that have yet to be counted in this race.

Will Finlay be able to overcome McCulloch’s 584-vote lead?

And will the proposed sales tax pass?

Stay tuned … we’ll update our readers as information becomes available.

The SCvotes.org website cannot even figure out that Georgetown County is in the 7th CD for their vote results website.

Haven’t you noticed? Nobody can do a damn thing anymore. Bad schools and too many pills.

Rumor has it that Kirkman won. Any official word out there anywhere?

I have ZERO confidence in the legitimacy of any results that came out of Richland County.
