Columbia, S.C. mayor Steve Benjamin was reelected by a broad margin in this week’s municipal election in South Carolina’s Capital City – which came as a shock to no one given his commanding lead in the polls.
The incumbent thrashed challenger Moe Baddourah by a whopping 64-36 percent margin – which makes sense when you consider Baddourah sounds like the name of an al-Qaeda operative.
A third candidate – former FBI analyst Larry Sypolt – dropped out of the race with a week to go and endorsed Benjamin. Sources tell FITS Sypolt is in line to receive a job with the City of Columbia’s much-maligned police department as a reward for his late conversion to Team Benjamin.
Ahhh yeah … “Mayorhood … Mayorhood always up ta no good.”
