U.S. Senate candidate Nancy Mace reported receiving $13,501.96 from FITSNews in her official campaign finance filing – which was “news” to FITS founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie).
“I didn’t know we were worth half that much,” Folks said.
But there it is … in black and white.
Mace’s former affiliation with FITS has been a hot topic of conversation ever since she announced her candidacy. In fact it has resulted in her campaign receiving more than a few barbs from various haters of this website. We expect those barbs to ramp up now that Mace has disclosed a monetary association with the site for the first time.
In fact one GOP consultant told FITS that Mace’s former affiliation with our website would “absolutely” be used to attack her.
And oh, look …
“Clearly Nancy Mace cannot be trusted,” the authors of GOPWrite.com, um, wrote. “In case you have been hiding under a rock for the past four years the owner of FITSnews.com’s claim to fame is that he had an alleged affair with Governor Nikki Haley.”
Alleged? Okay …
Anyway, the site goes on to refer to FITS as being a “misinformation site” and Folks as not being “dredible or trustworthy.”
Oh well … at least they spelled the name of our website correctly.
