SC Senator Used Campaign Funds For Porn

There really is something in the water in South Carolina, isn’t there? First there was Strom Thurmond’s “love child,” then there was Mark Sanford’s “hike on the Appalachian Trail” which was quickly followed by the (still-denied) “raw dog” sexploits of current Gov.

There really is something in the water in South Carolina, isn’t there?

First there was Strom Thurmond’s “love child,” then there was Mark Sanford’s “hike on the Appalachian Trail” which was quickly followed by the (still-denied) “raw dog” sexploits of current Gov. Nikki Haley. Not to be outdone, S.C. Sen. Robert Ford (D-Charleston) now stands accused of spending money from his campaign account at a porn store.

More than one of them, actually …

According to documents unearthed by the S.C. Senate ethics committee, Ford allegedly spent campaign funds at the Lion’s Den Adult Books and Video store on Interstate 26 near Bowman, S.C. Another purchase – in the amount of $63.00 – went to a Badd Kitty adult novelty shop in Charleston, S.C.

So what did he purchase? Bumpin’ Black Booties 2: Bootylicious Bugaboo? Or is Ford like most black lawmakers at the S.C. State House in that he prefers his naked women to be of the caucasian persuasion?

Or did he purchase some other item …

We’ll do our best to find out, people.

Ford, who has represented Charleston, S.C. in the Senate for the last twenty years, is facing multiple campaign finance allegations including illegal co-mingling of funds, improper reporting and failure to report contributions and loans.

UPDATE: Ford says he didn’t use campaign funds for porn but rather “gag gifts” for campaign staffers. Depending on the price of the gifts, that could actually wind up being legal as state law permits small gifts for campaign employees.

UPDATE II: Wow … now Ford is alleged to have used campaign funds to purchase male enhancement pills.

Apparently, there was no campaign money set aside for “Internet”?

I bet he would like the gorilla exhibit at Riverbanks Zoo. Their behavior is often naughty and the females just might think the senator handsome.

In true Leftwing fashion, FITS had to BASH Republicans before he got to the democrat’s offenses…And one of the attacks on the Republican is fabricated, according to all (or the lack of) evidence….

Pretty lame, FITS. you’re becoming WAY too obvious. Professionals (like The State) can do it w/ at least the apperanace of objectivity…I don’t blame you for trying, but for goodness sake, hire some talent, bro…You are drawing liberals only, except for my expert critiques…and I doubt they’ll do you much good at the ballot box. It’s you preaching to the choir…

He has always been a douche bag, always will be. Remember, he is the same person who thinks he can park his car in handicap spots, in fire lanes, and he also once used his Senate office letterhead to solicit business in the line of work he is in – which is selling used cars.
Oh? Catch him making a return drive back to Charleston from the Statehouse … he passes people going 80mph as if they are standing still, I kid you NOT!!
The man is a lawless rogue – PERIOD!

I’d happily pay for these guys to go to strip clubs, buy porn, smoke crack, screw co-eds, etc. as long as they promise to stop passing laws and increasing taxes. They can “work” from home by eating Cheetos in their underwear for all I care under those terms.

This will prove to be interesting. Did he pay in cash? If so, how can it be traced? Do these places take checks, especially those drawn on a campaign account? Did he use credit cards? Inquiring minds want to know.

I’m betting cash – that he got from his personal bank account after he deposited a check from his campaign account into it.

It’s a stretch to compare Ford with Strom “Racist Horndog” Thurmond or Governor Mark “Appalachian Trail”
Sanford. A little common venality doesn’t stand up to Thurmond’s decades
of racist hypocrisy or Sanford’s sanctimonious air of entitlement.
