SC-1: Crazy Kuhn On A Plane

Former S.C. Senator and first district congressional candidate John Kuhn was booted from a passenger airliner three years ago for refusing to turn off a portable electronic device – delaying passengers for over an hour.

The incident occurred on October 30, 2009 at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. At the time, Kuhn was one of several dozen passengers on a packed flight to Charleston, S.C. As the plane began taxiing toward the runway, stewardesses began making the rounds to ensure passengers had turned off their portable electronic devices.

According to witnesses, Kuhn refused to turn off his device not once – but twice. At that point, the stewardess informed Kuhn that refusing to turn off his device a third time would result in him being removed from the plane (a.k.a. “three strikes and you’re out”).

Still, Kuhn refused.

At that point, witnesses say the stewardess called the captain of the plane – who turned the aircraft around just moments before takeoff. Back at the gate, Kuhn was escorted off the plane – yelling something to a local attorney who was also reportedly on the flight.

Eventually, Kuhn was permitted back on the plane – which took off without further incident.

Kuhn’s mental fitness (or lack thereof) was a major issue during his brief tenure at the S.C. State House.

“Famous for his long-winded, high-pitched, borderline incomprehensible tirades from the well of the State Senate, Kuhn is … how do we put this nicely … nuts,” we wrote in assessing his entry into the first district race.

The more things change …

Kuhn is one of sixteen “Republicans” seeking the first district seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

“Kuhn is … how do we put this nicely … nuts”

And this is supposed to be a disqualifier to be an elected/appointed Cockroach in the Great State of South Carolina

Maybe if he stripped buck nakkied, covered himself in ketchup and ran the length of King Street screaming, the Indians are coming, the Indians are coming, the Indians are coming

Then there would be 50/50 odds you could count him out

Thanks Fits. This is the kind of news we don’t get in the MSM that’s important- the mental state of the candidates. This and the Turner article are relevant & revealing. The party of family values? I wonder who’s family has these values. Oh yea, GOP candidate’s families.

In his defense, SC politicians aren’t usually expected to follow the rules.

I saw him arguing with tomatoes at The Vegetable Bin in Charleston. When they didn’t see his point, he turned on the staff. He is really, really, really crazy.

You can tell a lot about a person by observing his or her actions on a plane. Those clowns that don’t turn their cell phones off, those people who immediately call someone upon landing and those who talk down to the flight attendants. Although that flight attendant on my flight last week was a colossal bitch when I asked her if USAir recycles its cans.

You can tell a lot about a person by how he treats a waitress, cashier, stewardess, bus driver, or a gardener — the sort of people you don’t HAVE to be nice to.

Christ taught us to treat every person kindly, lovingly — as though he was our brother — making NO DISTINCTION between the high & mighty and the poor & ragged.

This incident shows what sort of false “Christian” crazy John Kuhn is.

Thanks for this information, Will.

I’ve had nice ladies tell me that is one way they check out the personality of a prospective boyfriend (for want of a better word).

Absolutely. And a clever way that smart employers accurately “size up” a potential employee is to have lunch together and see how the candidate treats the hired help.
