Bobby Harrell Yanks PAC Website

Scandal-scarred S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell’s controversial “leadership PAC” has disappeared from the internet.

Scandal-scarred S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell’s controversial “leadership PAC” has disappeared from the internet.

The website for Harrell’s “Palmetto Leadership Council” – a political action committee which has engaged in all sorts of unethical behavior benefiting both Harrell and his fellow “Republicans in Name Only” in the S.C. General Assembly – has been down for more than a week.

You can see for yourself by visiting www.palmettoleadershipcouncil.org.

Hmmmmm …

What makes the disappearance of Harrell’s political action website especially curious? Well, the powerful Speaker – arguably the most influential elected official in the state – is currently staring down the business end of a major ethics complaint.

Not only that, Harrell’s “Palmetto Leadership Council” has contributed thousands of dollars to a handful of state lawmakers charged with conducting an inquiry into the host of alleged abuses perpetrated by Harrell.

Cozy, right?

Yes … and par for the course in corrupt as hell South Carolina.

According to the latest data from the S.C. State Ethic Commission (SCSEC), Harrell’s PAC spent $1.4 million during the recently concluded election cycle and has just over $172,000 in its account.

And they say loyalty can’t be purchased …

Several attempts have been made in recent years to ban these “Leadership PACs.” In fact S.C. Rep. Beth Bernstein (D-Columbia) – who was targeted for defeat by Harrell’s PAC last November – has introduced legislation which would outlaw them.

psychotics don’t feel heat, pain, or empathy like us normal people. And Will, “scandal scarred” is wishful thinking. LOL.

Try reading Harrell’s Wikipedia entry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Harrell

After three years of occasionally trying to update it with facts that included information less than favorable to Harrell – and there’s plenty out there – I got tired of Bobby’s minions repeatedly deleting it and replacing it with pro-Harrell puffery.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Harrell’s played fast and loose with the facts:

What a stooge.

Dear Bobby Harrell………

Sir, do you not find it interesting that you make a point to be informative on WTMA radio this morning and then Mr. Folks decides to run this type of article about you..?? Is it just coincidence or what..!? We just wonder if Big (T) understands how you are squeezing blood from MR. Folk’s “turnips”..!?

We feel certain that Mr. SMIRKS understands exactly what is going on here..! What we wonder is how many of your fellow citizens understand the impact of TAX Revenue when their are mandatory furloughs impending later this year that YOU are not warning your fellow citizens and business leaders about before the “storm”..!? Considering we have Eagle Scouts at WTMA, how prepared are our fellow citizens going to be..?

Now Bobby, you can fly around all you want too, but how many citizens are really aware of how many troops are getting killed for the foreign JET FUEL you purchase for your plane..!? Bobby, when is the last time you talked to the BOEING boyz about the ALGAE bio-jet fuel technology they are sitting on that is not being produced for sale at ANY price..!?

Bobby, when you are up there high in the sky, do you ever look down and wonder how much energy SHOULD be produce on top of every house in our state..!? …every Walmart in our state..!? Bobby, is BOEING roofing energy ….STUPID..!? Bobby, when you chat with Wil Folks, do you ever ask him how much his ENERGY bill is and how much he pays in LOCAL taxes every month..!? Bobby, we wager his children, (like my children would be proud of their dad for getting PAID for the energy that is PRODUCED on his roof. Care to take a wager, Bobby..!?

Bobby, if “William Wallace” were to have a chat with you, what tone would he have? We sure do hope YOU have the same tone when discussing our state’s ENERGY potential with certain individuals you LEAD….!

Bobby, would you not agree that Mr. Folks works hard to produce a “Carolina” product to generate advertising revenue and taxes for our state..!? Bobby, how exactly are you helping Wil Folks…do you realize it..!?

“Tara time” …is really soft…don’t ya think..?
