Lindsey Graham And The Lexington Ring?

We don’t believe for a minute that U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) has anything to do with the “Lexington Ring” – a cabal of corrupt politicians and crooked cops accused of running an illegal video poker operation. Graham is in on much bigger scams, people … Still, it was curious…

We don’t believe for a minute that U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) has anything to do with the “Lexington Ring” – a cabal of corrupt politicians and crooked cops accused of running an illegal video poker operation.

Graham is in on much bigger scams, people …

Still, it was curious to see Graham cozying up to Lexington, S.C. mayor Randy Halfacre – one of the local leaders who has reportedly been hauled in front of a grand jury to discuss his familiarity with/ proximity to/ involvement in the “ring’s” shady dealings.

“I think Lexington is one of the best models of what can happen when there’s a strong partnership between the city, the county and the business community,” Graham said.

Ha! That’s rich!

In truth, Lexington is one of the best models of what can happen when you let redneck thugs run local government with no oversight or accountability over their actions.

There’s a “strong partnership” between county government and the “business community” in Lexington, alright … as long as you don’t cross either.

As we’ve said all along we have absolutely no problem with people running gambling operations. Our objection is to the state’s monopoly over the business – and the inconsistent enforcement of that monopoly when it benefits those in power.

I’ve seen some of the ring and their associates recently

Halfacre looked truly screwed in the butt! Not sure if it was right after his meeting with Little Lindsay or others.

Associates Bob Peeler and Tim James look worse, if that is possible. I wonder how they feel now, after campaigning door to door, working the voter polls and asking people to vote for Frazier and proudly running his bumper stickers?
I wonder what they gor out of Fraziers ill gotten gains?

Widely rumored! An employee who has close association with the ring. I, at first thought, no way, then……..look at frazier and Peeler….my God. These women would sport the ass end of a horse. In Peeler’s case a cow.

Scalia Furious He Has to Hear About Gay Couples All Week

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — In an outburst that shocked many onlookers at the Supreme Court today, Justice Antonin Scalia said that it made him “angry beyond belief” that he had to listen to people talking about gay couples all week.

As Justice Anthony Kennedy questioned whether it was appropriate for the Court to hear a case about same-sex marriage at this time, Mr. Scalia stunned observers with an emotional outburst.

“O.K., could we just stop talking about this stuff right now?” Justice Scalia snapped at Justice Kennedy. “I’ve told you all how I feel about this topic, and I don’t understand why we’re going on and on about it unless you all hate me.”

As the courtroom froze in dead silence, Justice Scalia seemed to gather steam, shouting, “For two days, it’s been gay this, gay that. You’re all just talking about this stuff as if it’s the most normal thing in the world. Well, it’s not, O.K.? It’s weird and it’s wrong. And just talking about it like it’s O.K. and whatnot is making me angry beyond belief.”

As the other justices averted their eyes, Justice Scalia broke down, sobbing that he wished “things were normal, the way they used to be.”

These associates are merely parasites wanting to suck off the system (legal or illegal) for their own selfish betterment.

How about Hazel Tyndall Livingston? She is on town council, is mayor pro-tem and is still on the payroll at the fleet dept. of Herndon Chevy. Makes commissions for the cars she sells to the town. Now that’s a big conflict. Third husband, third times the charm.

Halfacre is going to lose if Trip Newsome runs against him in the primary. That is a fact. And we all know that in Lexington County, the Republican primary IS the election.
