Chip Limehouse’s Power Play

Last week Sue Stevens – the director of the Charleston International Airport – announced her resignation effective this September. The reason? According to her, verbal abuse and disrespectful conduct from two members of the airport’s board of directors.

One of those members? S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (RINO-Charleston) – who literally can’t take an oafishly clumsy step in the Holy City without landing in some sort of scandal. According to our sources, Limehouse – who waged a terribly disappointing campaign for the state’s first congressional district earlier this year – tried to have Stevens fired last year but was unsuccessful.

The rotund “Republican in Name Only” has been stacking the airport board with several of his cronies – including disgraced judge Larry Richter, former U.S. Rep. Tommy Hartnett and establishment “Republican” gadfly Mallory Factor.

Why? Because belive it or not Limehouse – who is richer than God – wants the $211,000 a year taxpayer-funded job for himself.

Hmmmm … guess somebody was watching the returns from this spring’s GOP first district primary election pretty closely. Limehouse, readers will remember, actually lost his own House district in his disastrous congressional campaign.

Not only that he’s facing a credible GOP challenger next summer if he wants to keep his seat in the S.C. House.

Limehouse’s bid for the airport gig is opposed by board chairman Andy Savage – a local attorney who wants to appoint S.C. Sen. Paul Campbell (RINO – Berkeley) to the post instead. However given the extent to which Limehouse has stacked the deck, he may have the votes to pull off this coup.

Stevens isn’t going down without a fight though. She’s reportedly called the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Limehouse – alleging to have seen checks made out to him by airport contractors.

Stevens is seeking a $500,000 settlement, we’re told.

Frankly, we don’t really care who runs the Charleston airport. We don’t live in Charleston and have no occasion to fly in or out of the city. Having said that, given Limehouse’s reputation for using his official positions to engage in all manner of self-serving behavior – Charleston residents should be exceedingly leery of this power play.

Don’t bet against Andy Savage. Local prosecutors have and find themselves on the losing end.

FITS: “Frankly, we don’t really care who runs the Charleston airport.”

O really. Why do you consistently harp on the fact that the SC Ports Authority should be privatized, only to turn a blind eye towards another type of port? Let all ports, whether they be seaports or airports be run by private companies. Those socialist bastards in the Netherlands and Germany even have privately run airports (Amsterdam, Frankfurt, etc) and have even experimented airport operations in the US (Terminal 4 at JFK in NYC, another socialist paradise, is run by the company that runs Amsterdam’s airport).

Ah that’s right… you don’t care about CHS since it doesn’t affect you. Tell that to the 2.5 million passengers who fly through S.C.’s busiest airport to fly in/out on a regular basis.

Mallory Factor is a GOP bundler. And, friend of Curtis Loftis…remember all that?
He has not been in this state long enough to be appointed to anything, much less, with his piddley bachelor’s degree, the John West “professor” at The Citadel.

Mallory Factor…AGAIN.
… John West “professor” at The Citadel, the state military school, with his piddle bachelor’s degree.
…Friend of Curtis Loftis, trying to get a piece of the SCRS action by telling Wall Streeters he was acting for the Treasurer.
…GOP bundler who left NYC for Charleston?
…Charleston Aviation Commission member?

But, this little website is more interested in what the CSOL, a private business, is up to than why and how Factor has gotten so connected, so under the radar, so fast and what he’s doing for all these politicians to get there.

Mallory Factor. The name alone suggests sleaze. I look at the politicians with whom he is associated (Loftis and Limehouse) and it suggests sleaze. What does this guy do and how is he able to pull the wool over our politician’s eyes. We are so damn naive that we let these slick talkers from New York take advantage of us and we don’t even know it’s happening. We even feel proud of it. Loftis with Bank of New York, Limehouse with Factor. So sorry.

In Charleston, there’s a ground swell of support for Von Lehe Runger — the college kid who opposed Bluto last year, and Bluto knows that. Charleston League of Women Voters members like Runger. Bluto’s days are numbered. Bluto’s daddy Buck, is nervous since Limehouse Properties is losing money. Bluto, you see, doesn’t bring in any business. Others in the office do the heavy lifting. Bluto specializes in lengthy meals. So naturally you see losers like Bluto and potato-head Campbell gunning for the easy money “managing” the Charleston Airport. What a couple of losers — Mutt & Jeff. If they weren’t legislators, they couldn’t get jobs at McDonalds.

Last week Spencer Pryor, brother to Teddie Pryor who is Chairman of Charleston County Council, (both are employees of Mayor Summey of North Charleston, father of Elliott Summey, vice chairman of Charleston County Council — Spencer is spokesman for the police dept and Teddie is Tourism Director [for North Charleston!] or some such), was reappointed to the airport board, bringing his vast knowledge of airport and aviation operations. Also appointed was Walter Hundley, former state rep, who also brings vast knowledge of airport and aviation operations.

It is a large gang rape of the former Executive Director, Sue Stevens by, what, about twenty men, all politicians.

Stevens worked her way up at that airport over twenty six years and knows it inside and out.

If Stevens’ lawyer, Nancy Bloodgood, doesn’t sue those bastards, and accepts a chump $500,000, then both those women deserve to be fed to the sharks.

I’m waiting for THEIR next move…
