COLONEL CLEARED OF CRIMINAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is reinstating its second-in-command after he was cleared of criminal domestic violence allegations.

Colonel Chisolm Frampton – who was arrested and charged with CDV last November – was suspended without pay from his $96,000 a year (plus benefits) position in the wake of his arrest. Frampton was accused of kicking his wife and threatening her with a broken broomstick because she spent too much money.

Sources at SCDNR tell FITS Frampton is a “good guy” – adding they never believed the charges against him were true.

And while Frampton has been vindicated by the legal process, SCNDR appears to be doing its best to keep his reinstatement on the “down low,” fearing mainstream media backlash.

“They are trying to slide him right back in, which is not all bad,” one of our sources at the agency says. “But them trying to keep things hush hush is what is so funny.”

SCDNR – which polices South Carolina hunters, fishermen and boaters – was at the heart of several scandals last year as S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s appointee to lead the agency resigned her post after it was revealed she tried to muzzle employees from speaking out against Haley’s controversial “Savannah River Sellout.”

Haley’s chairwoman also raised SCDNR fees on South Carolina hunters, fishers and boaters by $4.7 million in the current budget – even though the agency received an additional $2.5 million in the state’s record-setting FY 2011-12 budget (and another $2.3 million in lottery revenue in August of 2011).

Why does Ol’Chisolm’s photo remind me of these lines from one of SC’s most prolific writers one and only movie:

Mountain Man: I bet you can squeal like a pig. Weeeeeeee!
Bobby: Weee!
Mountain Man: Weeeeeeee!
Bobby: Weee!
Mountain Man: What do you want to do now?
Toothless Man: [grinning] He got a real pretty mouth ain’t he?
Mountain Man: That’s the truth
Toothless Man: [to Ed] You gonna do some prayin’ for me, boy. And you better pray good
Mountain Man: [to Bobby] Them panties. Take ’em off.
Mountain Man: Looks like we got us a sow here instead of a boar.

Chaz has almost completed all surgeries except one, she-he does not yet have a penis. Saving up for that one. True stuff. Wonder if Frampton has a penis yet?

WOW……..this piece may be “news” but it would seem that FITS would expose the BOEING Dreamliner meltdown..!! Considering that the Union fiasco dust up was covered while SC was giving BOEING 900 million in SC taxpayer funds with out a vote, it would only be logical that the plane would have “problems” to line the pockets of union investors with insider tech knowledge..!!

Are FITS readers getting any of this “Dreamliner” swag..?! Buy LOW…sell high..!!

So….how low will Dreamliner stock go before a summer “basking”..??

….of course any 900 million re-payment may have to be delayed….!!

….we wonder what dreams the “MACE” group is having..? A summer bask in Argentina may be what the Obama Chicago doctors prescribes…

We wonder if Rice Motley is watching…??

Seems like there are a lot of “Frampton”s at DNR. Is it nepotism or in-breeding?

Doesn’t the DNR have some kind of physical fitness standard for its officers?

It’s funny that he’s called a Colonel, maybe he’s related to Colonel Sanders of KFC…that would explain his figure.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion reaffirmed

Ms. Colonel has learned if one kicks Colonel Golden Goose in the nuts, Colonel Golden Goose will lay no more Golden Eggs for Ms. Colonel to spend.

Odds are everything will be Hunky Dory until the visa, mastercard, discover, american express, lowes, home depot, tractor supply and home shopping network bills hit the kitchen table.

Come to think of it that is probably where Ms. Colonel’s head will land.

You never know when a gang of possums might show up, or a rogue raccoon may break bad. I feel safer just knowing these guys are around.

….. which reminds me—

A turtle left his home on the river to go into Columbia for a big night out. On the way he was attacked and robbed by a gang of snails. Reporting this to the police, he was asked to provide a description of this gang. He replied, “no, it all happened so fast!”

Wonder how many people know that SCDNR agents are the most powerful in the state? They have more authority than other law enforcement.

Ridiculous…..so the fact the police were called and charges were filed mean nothing? He is a part of the law enforcement community…shame on DNR and their board for reinstating him!

and dont get me started on these “magical powers” DNR has. It’s simply because they have not been tested yet in the supreme court. The next one that boards and searches my boat w/o probable cause looking for a “creel limit” a “duck” or a fucking whistle will get to test it!

If I had $96,000 a year to spend on groceries I’d swell up too. Damn — I’d have me a deep freezer and an old used icebox in the garage just to hold my beer, soda, and ground round. Maybe even get me a soft serve ice cream machine like the one at Golden Coral.

I be squealing like a castrated Teletubby just thinkin’ about it!

The “whistle” is for “signaling for help” you go to the water festival you get checked 7 damn times by DNR coming and going wanting to see a fucking whistle!!

Thanks! I forgot about that. Are you referring the Beaufort festival? I had a near -miss experience there one time (involving a female I took there). God, why won’t you let me forget about that weekend?

$96,000 a year for this over educated fat ass that most likely couldn’t walk up a boat ramp without assistance?! That is nepotism at it finest ladies and gentlemen. They pay the ones who do the work only $32,000 a year and if we decide to slap the wife around a bit our career is over, no questions asked. Chisolm Frampton is a redneck wife beating SOB disguised in a SCDNR uniform. I wonder what congressman or senator he gave a reach around to in order to even get that job. What a disgrace and waste of a badge!
