CHIP LIMEHOUSE WILL WADDLE … ERRR, RUN FOR THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS
S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (RINO-Charleston) made it official this week … all eleventy kabillion pounds of him are running for the U.S. Congress.
The liberal henchman of left-leaning S.C. Speaker Bobby Harrell (RINO-Charleston) will seek the first congressional district seat vacated earlier this year by new U.S. Senator Tim Scott – immediately staking out the far left fiscal flank of what is expected to be a crowded field. One of Harrell’s top lieutenants in the S.C. House of Representatives, Limehouse has been a driving force behind the recent explosion of spending in state government – particularly the rash of totally unnecessary higher ed spending. And when he’s not wasting money, Limehouse is Harrell’s go-to guy when it comes to covering up scandals …
He’s also all about self-interest … one of those lawmakers who routinely uses his influence to game the system in a manner that benefits him financially.
Limehouse’s weighty bid did not begin on a high note. Speaking to a group of Republicans in Hilton Head, S.C., he was grilled on his fiscal record – at which point he had the audacity to say that he didn’t want to talk about his record in Columbia but rather wanted to focus exclusively on his congressional bid.
Needless to say, that response went over about as well as a fart in church …
In fact Limehouse’s “I’m not here to talk about my state legislative record” may have even been captured on video.
Limehouse is the absolute worst possible candidate for this seat. Not only is he a fiscal liberal, he’s an insufferable asshole – an arrogant buffoon who owes everything he has in life to being a “Limehouse from Charleston” (and everything he has in politics to being Bobby Harrell’s errand boy).
First district voters simply cannot permit such an unprincipled, self-serving status quo politician to be their representative … in fact they should vote his fat ass out of the S.C. State House the next chance they get.
