The deluge of rain seen across South Carolina over the last few weeks has flooded the Orangeburg County Courthouse, sources tell FITS.

Why is this a big deal? Because the basement of the building houses the offices of S.C. First District solicitor David M. Pascoe (which … you know … has evidence and case files and stuff).

How bad was it?

“One assistant solicitor’s office was in standing water while others had their carpet soaked,” one source told us. “The flood was discovered by Solicitor Pascoe when he came in Saturday morning to do some work. When Pascoe discovered the problem he immediately called ServPro who were able to prevent any major damage from occurring.”

According to one source, the flooding is the result of “a back-up in an outdated drainage system” that county officials have refused to fix.

Yikes …

Wonder how many criminals will go free as a result of this screw-up?

Somebody better call the Soggy Bottom Boys …

Anyway, we’ll be sure to keep tabs on this situation. Also, The (Orangeburg, S.C.) Times and Democrat is reportedly investigating the flood, so we’ll update our readers if there’s anything of note in their reporting …

Why have county officials (allegedly) refused to fix the back-up in the drainage system?

Also, insert obligatory joke about O’burg and sewage/shit right here.

Further insert Who gives a flying crap. Slow news day. Where the hell is Sanford (foot in mouth disease) or Ms. Lindsey.

Good gravy. Didn’t realize how badly I was addicted to dissing libitards. Shit. I’m going home.

Orangeburg is the only town I’ve ever been to where you can drive all the way around town and never get out of the bad part of town.

As a kid in marching band, when we played against Orangeburg, we were told by police not to go too far outside our area near the bleachers. We had to have a cop escort us to the bathrooms.

You were in the marching band???…I thought most leftwing radicals poked fun and bullied squares in the marching band, after you had a few tokes…Obama was busy snorting coke at his hip, prep school, and laughing at nerds like you…

Better not let the ‘Cool Kids’ like FITS find out. Not

….and Trent Lott was head Cheerleader for the Rebels of Ole Miss.

If we had just listened to Ol’ Strom we wouldn’t be in this mess.

“whack…..whack…whack…”

“Zat you, Strom?”

I’m not saying anything negative. I have learned to respect all contributors…I’m just telling you what your gods, like FITS and Obama, think of you…based on their record…

You call everyone a left wing radical. It doesn’t make you any less of a racist bitch.

My Orangeburger friends (Full disclosure : I grew up and live about 10 miles away) have a saying:

” ORANGEBURG….It’s a great place to be ‘FROM’.”
