Mace Pops Graham For Breaking Tax Pledge

One day after formally concluding her association with this website, Charleston, S.C. small businesswoman Nancy Mace – who also happens to be the first woman to graduate from The Citadel –  gave a speech to the Aiken County Republican Club.

According to reporter Rob Novit of The Aiken Standard, Mace “expressed frustration that too many Washington lawmakers of both parities are going behind closed doors.”

“She’s amazed what lawmakers and consultants can get away with,” Novit reported, quoting Mace as saying most elected officials “have no idea what’s going on away from Washington and are more focused on representing friends and special interests instead of their constituents.”

Of course Mace didn’t confine her commentary to generalities about Washington, D.C.’s culture of corruption – she specifically called out U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, whose seat she is eying in 2014.

“He broke his tax pledge,” Mace said.

That’s true … 

In fact this betrayal – one of many by Graham – is among the reasons shady special interest groups are pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into advertisements touting his “conservative values.”

Ha!

Anyway, the point of this post isn’t to gratuitously slam Graham (we did that last week), it’s to take note of Mace’s appearance in Aiken – which as far as we know was her first political address – and what it means for the 2014 election cycle.

While Mace has yet to formally declare her intentions, a pair of socially conservative Republicans have announced their intention to challenge Graham – S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg) and Richard Cash, who nearly won the state’s third congressional district in 2010.

A movement is also underway among limited government advocates to draft S.C. Senator Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) into the race against Graham, although at this point Davis appears to be sticking with his decision not to run.

She absolutely does. She will whip Cash and Bright by a mile, and I think the only way you can beat Graham is with a woman just like her.

Graham has $4.4 million in the bank. His next election isn’t going to be about issues. It’s going to be about cold, hard cash, like it usually is.

Exactly. Which is why it is going to take someone who has some name recognition, who has a story, a message and the network to pull it off. She is just what SC needs. And if she does it right, she could win.

Has Ms. Mace confirmed or denied intrest in filing to run against Flimsey Graham so that we have a real woman in that seat?

Politicians are beholden to special interests?! WOW. This is the kind of fresh leadership we need in Congress! Can I just give her the max contribution now?

On another note, if she thinks she’s not going to be forever tied to the sleaze and smut of FITS, she’s dumber than we think. Lindsay may not be as conservative as we’d like, but he’s a smart politician, and all the nice Christian ladies who vote in primaries will get an eyeful of all shit that’s been going on here during her “association.” I hope you saved the money you made, Mace.

This chick is seriously beautiful.

If I thought politics was the answer to anything(other than furthering misery) I’d probably think about dumping my brain in the trash can and vote for her based on her looks.

Well, not really…but I’d think about it-so that’s saying something…even if that “something” is that I’m mildly retarded.
