“Richland Robbery” Update

We’re not exactly sure what can be done at this point to right the egregious wrong that is the “Richland Robbery,” a flagrant example of voter suppression that was perpetrated last year to ensure the passage of a $1.2 billion tax hike. This is the biggest, most cut-and-dried scandal we’ve ever seen in South Carolina … which is saying something in a state as scandalous and corrupt as South Carolina.

Yet nobody is doing anything about it …

When we last addressed the robbery, we were calling on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to launch a voting rights investigation into irrefutable evidence of voter suppression that took place in deliberate violation of state law. Of course Holder – whose boss Barack Obama promised us an America in which “no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote” – has been pretty busy running guns in Mexico and spying on reporters.

And besides, these were mostly white, anti-tax voters victimized … which means Holder’s “Justice” Department is unlikely to intervene in this case.

So will there ever be justice? We doubt it … in fact even some of our website’s staunchest supporters tell us they’re tired of us “beating a dead horse.”

Yeah … well … we’re not going to do that, because this scam takes money directly out of our pockets.

Of course while the taxpayers of Richland County, us included, are shelling out more of their hard-earned cash on this new levy, the corrupt bureaucrat who pulled off the scam (under the guise of “incompetence”) got rewarded with a new job and a pension for life.

No really …

Surely the corrupt leaders who orchestrated this scam couldn’t just give McBride the job, though, could they? Surely they had to advertise this position and go through the motions of interviewing other applicants, right? Right?

Wrong. According to our sources in county government, Richland “Robber” Lillian McBride was the only candidate interviewed for her “new” position.

“Multiple other people applied for the job and were never interviewed,” one of our sources says.

Not only that, McBride is reportedly negotiating a five-year deal with the county, which of course would guarantee her lifetime pension benefit.

Amazing …

Remember, McBride wasn’t just some disconnected boob in this scam. She was handpicked by leaders of the local legislative delegation because of her intimate connections to the pro-tax movement. In fact she had a convicted felon working for the tax hike movement inside her office the night the ballots were being counted.

How’s that for electoral integrity?

At every stage of this scam, information continues to be brought forward validating what everyone knows: That this election was stolen. Yet with every new bit of information brought forward, leaders who ought to be standing up for the taxpayers keep taking steps backward.

Unless that changes, the “Richland Robbers” will continue collecting and spending their ill-gotten gains …

TL;DR: Just a reminder that nothing’s going to happen. There is no “update.”

“Yet with every new bit of information brought forward, leaders who ought to be standing up for the taxpayers keep taking steps backward”

In reality the paragraph should read:

Yet with every new bit of information brought forward, leaders are standing right behind taxpayers taking steps to make sure taxpayers wont fall backwards as they dick them again, again and again

There were eleven (11) machines at my precinct in Richland County this morning for a SCHOOL BOARD election, and only four or so working machines on ELECTION DAY.

There is a law in SC that is specifically designed to fight voter fraud. We had a report from a University professor, promises from General Assembly incumbents, and a ruling from SC Supreme Court that all but endorsed the validity of the election outcome. What of the election process? The memos? The local board hearings? Was a crime committed? Will certain county agencies benefit by the fraud monetarily? Is the reason for stifling criticism and burying a criminal investigation? How does a citizen in Richland County proceed against such an alignment to brush off improprieties and criminality?

“The South Carolina Legislature created the State Grand Jury in 1989, as a prosecutorial body whose jurisdiction extends throughout the State. The General Assembly recognized that crimes often transpire or have significance in more than one county. Thus, a grand jury system was authorized to cross county lines in the detection and investigation of certain crimes. The State Grand Jury prosecutes narcotics of multi-county significance and obscenity offenses, public corruption, and election fraud. Jurisdiction has been broadened to include gang crimes, environmental crimes, computer crimes, terrorism and securities fraud.

The State Grand Jury was organized for the prosecution of larger, complex cases and has the resources to fully pursue and investigate crimes prior to indictment. Law enforcement officers who refer cases to the State Grand Jury can benefit from those assets. The State Grand Jury is structured in a manner which allows substantial attorney and agent time to be devoted to each case. Of course, the grand jury, through the issuance of subpoenas, has the power to compel testimony and can require the production of documents much like the federal grand jury. Confidential informants and cooperating witnesses who testify before the grand jury become bound by that testimony and are, therefore, inclined to likewise testify at trial. When a State Grand Jury case is called to court only one trial is scheduled for that time, and no pressure exists to resolve a certain number of cases during any one term of court. In addition to the assets available to them, law enforcement officials can be confident that the State Grand Jury will work with them, always keeping them informed and seeking input on the case.

Any law enforcement agency (or citizen, citizens group) that wishes to refer a public corruption, narcotics, election fraud, obscenity, terrorism, computer crime, or securities fraud case to the State Grand Jury should contact the State Grand Jury at 803-734-3693. The State Grand Jury welcomes all case referrals and looks forward to working with all local law enforcement officers.”
