GIVE CASH … OR FACE BACKLASH
S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (RINO-Charleston) has been accused of leveraging his powerful perch as a budget writer in the S.C. House of Representatives to solicit campaign contributions for his recently announced congressional bid. In fact multiple sources who claim to have been approached for money by Limehouse – a.k.a. “Fat Boy” – tell FITS this powerful lieutenant of fiscally liberal S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell (RINO-Charleston) went so far as to threaten them with retaliation if they didn’t ante up.
“Words weren’t minced,” one source tells us. “It wasn’t implicit, it was flat out ‘you’re gonna help me or else.’ He explicitly mentioned being the first vice chair on Ways and Means.”
One of numerous candidates for the U.S. House seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, Limehouse is richer than God and could easily self-finance his congressional campaign if he wanted to. But that’s not how rich people operate – and to their credit, that’s one reason they’re so rich. Of course what Limehouse has been accused of doing is highly illegal – and the fact he’s allegedly making such threats in the context of a federal election means there could be real consequences to his actions.
Ordinarily, such scandals would be ignored by the S.C. House Ethics Committee – which has a long history of covering up illegal activity by current and former legislators. And obviously this rotund RINO is no stranger to corruption (see here, here and here).
Sources close to Limehouse bristled at the allegations.
“That’s undeniably fabricated by folks who do not like the fact that Chip Limehouse is positioning himself as the early leader in this race,” a source close to Limehouse told FITS. “I expect we will see far more mudslinging before this thing is over.”
Limehouse’s bid is already off to a rocky start. Grilled for his liberal voting record at a recent Republican meeting on Hilton Head Island, S.C., the 18-year lawmaker snapped that he wasn’t attending the meeting to discuss his record in the S.C. House but rather his congressional bid. His response was reportedly captured on film.
In addition to Limehouse, former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford, S.C. Sen. Larry Grooms (R-Berkeley), S.C. Rep. Peter McCoy (R-James Island), S.C. Rep. Andy Patrick (RINO-Beaufort), former S.C. Sen. John Kuhn, Charleston businessman Teddy Turner and Charleston attorney Curtis Bostic are presumptive candidates for this seat.
Earlier today, former S.C. Treasurer Thomas Ravenel indicated he, too, was considering a bid.
Why do I get the feeling the response is Michelle Bachmann style..
Jakie Knotts – Low Country Style
Does anyone know his Body Mass Index?
I think I can guess who his consultant is easily.
We really do not have anyone qualified to represent us. The who crew is a fucking joke. They are so bad that Tom Ravenel is looking good.
I’m saving all the Limehouse articles and comments. When I get the full story(ies), I’m going to use this tough guy in my next adventure. And I think it would be interesting to turn his character into a broad named “Chapped”.
Didn’t his brother serve time?
Dont know about that
Sidi Limehouse,a former Charleston Legislator,did federal time for growing Marijuana many years ago
They are related though Im not sure how
Chip was a kid back then and cant really be associated with that
Sidi was no farmer. He got busted for smuggling weed, not that there’s anything wrong with it. Did his time at Eglin Air Force Base, Homestead, Florida. Sidi boasted that while there he learned Spanish and bricklaying in addition to improving his tennis game and reducing his golf handicap. He was ably represented at trial by the late Cummings Gibbes.
That would be Coming Ball Gibbs, Jr.
Thanks, ceil, it was a long time ago, and I never saw his name in print.
At one point in time I was convinced that no “objectionable” word could be offended by being associated with any other word.
Once I used the word Turd in conjunction with a story about Florence’s Senator Leatherpecker and came close to apologizing to Turds everywhere.
Now I am at a similar crossroads with Limehouse. From many aspects such as looks, reported activities, reported conversations he is a Turd.
However, I cannot bring myself to writing such because I think I will need to shit again in my lifetime and I don’t care to fuck around with Karma.
Speak your heart, Kwai Chang Lewis, for I shall turn my ears to hear only the grasshopper at your feet.
owb, not to be snarky, but there are no “points” in time. Points are in space, as in Point A to Point B. There are “moments” in time, or you can simply say “At this time…”.
I think you’re an OK dude who won’t take this teachable moment the wrong way. I can’t help myself; it’s what I do. Peace out.
You’ll have to go on a crusade to get that habit changed. I hear it all the time. Thanks for the moment of enlightenment, I’ll remember that in the future. (I hope)
There are “instants in time,” as well as “intervals” and “episodes” and “periods” if delta-t be >0.
But in any case, common English usage trumps physic’s arcana.
“Point in time” is just fine.
Who is more of a Turd, him or Lee Bright???
Soft Sigh, only dolts and dullards have a problem with precision. Those who think like you have caused the world to degenerate into a cesspool of accumulated error.
Sanford should have MORE influence after EIGHT years as Gov.
If Sanford does not. If he is considered a joke or a Disgraced…who should he blame?
Actions have Consequences – –
Translated: Don’t hate the playa just because you played the game like a Chump….
Why do you always reach for Sanford, Obama, and Fits? Every damn problem in the world revolves around these three. Get to a doctor, Bog(o)T!
You don’t have to REACH…
Sanford is gone, and the state is actually doing better, in a MUCH worse national economy, brought to us by Obama…
Or do you like No jobs, low house prices, declingng income, insurance hell, no energy policy and people (who are decent and want to work) SCARED to Death of the federales…???…you F^&8!n Brain-Dead, [email protected]$$…
That’s no way to talk to a lady, asshole!
If it voted for Obama it’s as big a [email protected]$$ as you…
And when we start accepting Anti-American Idiots, because you police speech…We’re screwed..
So STFU before I slap the $#!* out of your Ignorant, America Hating @$$…
Listen asshole, you’re damn lucky my husband doesn’t know who you are or you would end up worse than just slapped, prick.
Also, big man…I have a job, received a raise, and my house is worth more than it was four years ago.
FD: You likely work at a do-nothing (but regulate and fail) job and got a Community Re-Investment Act Hate-Based loan…(that I propt up)…
Or either you’re one of these stupid Cul-d-Sac Yuppies…who votes on your Guilt because you’re lazy, and think you stole what you have (which you likely did)….
The difference is: I was not raised in the cushy burbs…and I don’t owe you leftwing theives anything…and I have nothing to apologize for….
You can give away all you have…I don’t care…but you need to keep your hands, and greedy laws off me…I beleive in the 2nd Amendment. It was meant for threatening takers like you….
Yeah, way off….but I imagine you’re sitting in a mobile home a friend rents to you, have no employable skills, watches Fox…in closing, go fuck yourself.
AWRIGHTY, NOW! You folks just lay off my man or I’m a gonna whop you upside yer LIBRAL heads with his strap-on!
I know! Tamp and Cousins are killing me!
Is this gentleman aware of the many opportunities he is suited for at LMC? The application is online and only a few mouse clicks away!
Don’t forget to enter your password.
Obama is the Hitler of HealthCare now..because of Obama-Care…
If you’re a Lazy, drunk or drug-doing socialist…yeah..get into healthCare…
But the Earners will flee HealcCare in Droves…until the Ignorant deomcrats figure out the Stupidity and failure of Obama-care (that’s already started)…and we repeal it overwhelmingly…..
It would be worth the 30 days in jail for bitch slapping this pretentious fat ass wipe. I pray God strikes him down with a bolt of lighting. He deserves it!
BigT or Chip?
Oops! I checked in when bigt is on a rant with farmers daughter. Since fd is new here I can only tell you that trying to argue/convince/reason/or get an apology from bigt is a hopeless exercise. The best that could happen according to you cant is that when God strikes bigt with a bolt of lightning it really doesn’t kill him, just goes through him and comes – OUT OF HIS ASS!
That nasty old farmer’s daughter better not try to intice my man up into the hayloft. I will mud rastle any skank what lays hands on his sweet lovin’!
Haha! This site should have its own reality show.
Liberals cannot stand to be defined for what they are…and I do that better than anyone…
You go from bashing a non-Sanford Congressional candidate to whoring yourself for Obama, the WORST (by far) president of my lifetime…
Even the demcrats have come up from the worship of their god to see that maybe he is nothing but a false hate-based idol…
I will laugh when the left finally figures out they put the diety of liberalism ahead of morals and their own children’s best intrests…
You are an ignorant and filthy ilk…and your legacy is tremendous damage to our country..
You tell ’em honey bun!
Imitation is the highest form of flattery…
But just a note: You liberals are so stupid and lack any creativity or originality..I’m not flattered….
You’re likey helping me because you look so dull and lost…
Stick to parrotting and marching like Gestapo to the Leftwing Edicts from the DNC…at least they are thinking of something, even it’s so weak, only you dolts would believe it…
You tell dem sumnabeeches Big T! Jes remember we cousins has always took care of yer backside! Locked and Loaded! Ready to ROLL! We uns is a gonna KICK sum LIBREL SKUM [email protected]@…
Now ain’t I done tole you boys not to leave the trailer till the cookin’ was done. You wanna cause a splosion or sumthin’
You shore the filters on these masks is suposed to last 2 years? They started gettin’ crusty after just a few months and now we gotta use our barlow knives to scrape ’em clean.
BigT, that’s clever, and just because you made me smile, I won’t bug you today.
FOR THE OFFICIAL RECORD:
I am a Moderate Conservative, an Independent, clear-headed & clear-thinking, born & raised in the SOUTH, – Red/White/Blue blooded Flag-waving military veteran, stubborn, and proud of my HERITAGE
=*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*= =*=
Moderate Conservative: BING BING BING…
That phrase right there says it ALL…and why we’re in the mess we’re in…
FITS Swears he;s a Conservative (see how he calimed he answered phone survey questions)…But his ACTIONS give us Obama, Sanford and Graham…
and you people can feel good about yourselves, while the media pats you on the back…until your children (like may) are suffering…
Bush’s economy was so GOOD, Sanford was not exposed and we’ve been able to cruise for 5 years…but it’s coming to an end..and there will be nowhere to ride…
And you’ll eithe rMan-Up or drown…I expect many will drown…based on your character…
I can cure you of your hatred and ignorance. But first you must leave Pelion before I can help you.
Nice Kal-Atua: Bashing people who you see as below you because they may not share your Hatred, greed and immoarlity…
Your a a faithful-Hateful Leftwing Obama Ideologue…
You people expect the World to accept your Corruption…or you will FORCE it on them…
It’s why Obana is trying to force faith-founded hospitals to dole out abortion on demand and he wants Churches to become Champions of Gays…or else…
You are close to going too far…and you’ll scream when it Slaps you…but no one is so Stupid they’ll keep tolerating your Ignorance and Close-minded NAZI HATE and Destruction…
My powers can be used to purge you of your ignorance and hatred, but you must:
Step 1> move away from Pelion
Step 2> enroll in an English class at Lexington High School
“My powers can be used to purge you of your ignorance and hatred…”
Doubt it. It’s Bigums we’re discussing here.
Mr. BigT, I’ve been reading all of your comments. Are you really Mr. Limehouse? If you are, please call me – you are my kind of man.
What you said but insert “Semi-south” for my background
If the country had more people like us, it would be a better country
It really doesn’t matter where one was raised. Every county in every state has similar-thinking citizens. We just didn’t have enough of us at the polls this time. In 2014 I sincerely hope this changes. But we’re glad you’re here – welcome!
If this world had more people like you and Big T we would still be perched in treetops tossing coconuts at Sabre-Tooth Tigers.
Seems I stick to your policy and political actions…and the consequences
You people simply HATE me…and think if you can attack me…it makes your failure right…
That is Typical of the LEFTWING movement…
It’s not hate. Just laughter at someone who actually thinks the state is doing better…who praises the fucktard governor that could not get elected in any other state in the country (including Alaksa)…and who thinks fat fucks like Limehouse and the rest of the inbred, dumbass, rednecks in Columbia and in DC are the answer to our problems.
So, not hate.
Man, this shit got funny!
Dear T Cousins, try using your cloth diapers (please wash first).
BigT is the one with the rectal rash.
Thank you very much, Mrs. BigT.
No problem, dear. Just be very LIBERAL with the talc!
And, thank you all so much for a givin my man sumthin to keep hisself occumpied with these here days. He aint a bad feller, onct you gits to no him. He likes rabbits and he done raised a bunch o them furry little critters over the yars. Nary a one did he ever killted for meat on the tabel. Says he just cant bring hisself to do it. He done give em little cute names like FESTUS, MARTHA, and LESTER and such and so on.
I helped him croshay each one a little Santa Hat so my next door neighbor, Bertha, could come over her with her Polaroid camera and git some REAL ALL AMERICAN QUALITY instant pictures.
In defense of Big T
Why all the rage directed at Big T? He simply reflects ,albeit more bluntly, the views of most SC Republicans.Seemingly, a lot of posters get far more exercised at his rantings,than the policies of the Republican Party of South Carolina which controls this state and is directly responsible for the state of governance within.So bellow on Big T, a proud South Carolina REPUBLICAN!
Ri=ght back at ya: Obama reflects the religion of Liberalism…
High unemployment, Hate of Black vs White, Woman vs Man and Taker vs Earner…
You try to Push Abortion on Church Hospitals, and make Christians perform gGay ceremonies of what you call unions…
Bush was the last Republicans President (and he tried to serve you)…and we still had 5% unemployment, rising salaries, an energy policy, respect internationally and a robust beleif in America…
I’m as proud of Conservative Success and South Carolina…as you should be ashamed of the major EFF Up you are…
But you are Too F*(#in Stupid to understamd what a F*^k Up you are…or you are too much a piece of liberal $#!* to care (probably a little of both)….
That said: Even the democrats are beginning to crack..and see it my way…and you will be standing there like the Idiots you are…when it turns on you…
“Bush was the last Republicans President (and he tried to serve you)…and we still had 5% unemployment, rising salaries, an energy policy, respect internationally and a robust beleif in America…”
You have a strange view of the world, does anyone else share it?
I know I do!
Funny, I remember the 2008 election before Obama was elected, that everthing was in the shitter…You Republican asses can’t be rewriting history yet again…
The American economy has cycles of ups and downs…Almost ALL of Bush’s TWO terms were very Robust economically…
In 08, Obama was GREAT at blaming bush and the GOP to get elected…but that Stupid Son of a B!*ch has made EVERYTHING WORSE…Obama not only did not govern toward a Recovery…He’s just about Sunk us into an Effin’ Depression…with no ansers or hope….
Yet, Totally Ignorant @$$-holes, like FD, Don’t give a $#!* if people starve…as long as you can worhip your evil god and idol Obama…
You are very un-American, Hateful people…You don’t care about anyone, as long as your Government check hits at the first at the first of the month…
You make every WORKING (not lawyer or government job) American Sick…You are a burden and a disgrace….
Robust? Is that how we paid for the two wars he got us in? STFU little man.
Hello. My name is Chip Limehouse and I’m a stupid asshole.
…Did sumbody say “Asshole?” You up fer threefers?
Why did this post prove so attractive to juveniles?
My only comment is that Limehouse is indeed unethical as hell and that the FITS report above does not surprise me.
Most of the other candidates are unattractive, too.
I look forward to adult-style debates on television.
This race will be interesting.
Sanford might run stronger than most think he will. Back during the summer (I think, in any case not too long ago) The State newspaper ran an opinion piece by him that had what I thought was a glaring historical error. I figured the paper would publish numerous letters to the editor deriding him for the error and watched for weeks and never saw a single mention, so even his enemies have mellowed to where they didn’t feel that strongly to call him on it. He’s still popular with a lot of people, what he did was with his personal life and frankly if everyone that committed adultery disappeared overnight there would be a lot of missing people. Doesn’t make it right but it’s a fact. He showed that the sate of South Carolina’s major problem is the state legislature and yes if I lived in his district I would vote for him.
Who is Todd Limehouse. Someone referenced him in a recent post but did not elaborate any details.
An even bigger gay douchebag than all the other limehouses except his own father. Run from this person as fast as you can and don’t look back. The limehouses are crooks, liars, and thieves
To Readers of this website:
Just ignore Big T. Don’t respond to him. He will perhaps go away.
I’m a progressive. I am a business person. I pay a lot of taxes. All business people are not Republican. Some of us actually care about our fellow man ( and woman). I am proud to be progressive.
Mr. BigT, are you really Mr. Limehouse? If you are, please call me – you are my kind of man.
Is this a green screen photo shop pic….or did Chip actually get a photog to capture this glamour shot..???
