Richland County Robbery: Holder Must Act

INVESTIGATION INTO 2012 ELECTION CANNOT WAIT ANY LONGER This website has repeatedly called on the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) – led by Attorney General Eric Holder – to conduct an investigation into the 2012 “Richland County Robbery.” Why?

This website has repeatedly called on the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) – led by Attorney General Eric Holder – to conduct an investigation into the 2012 “Richland County Robbery.”

Why? Because clear and compelling evidence exists that corrupt election officials deliberately caused illegal voting machine shortages that disproportionately impacted voters in anti-tax regions of the county.

As a result of this deliberate voter suppression, a $1.2 billion tax hike was narrowly “approved.”

Some background: After county residents narrowly rejected this tax hike in 2010, liberal Republican and Democratic leaders of the local legislative delegation decided to take matters into their own hands. And so with the approval of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, they  passed a law seizing control of the local election commission – and installed their hand-picked puppet as its leader.

This puppet proceeded to rig the election – targeting excessive shortages of voting machines in county precincts that voted against the tax hike two years earlier (possibly working in direct coordination with her intimate relations in the pro-tax movement).

These election machine shortages – which again, flagrantly violated state law – produced wait times of up to seven hours in staunchly anti-tax districts, which resulted in widespread suppression of the anti-tax vote.

The result? A narrow “victory” for the tax hike – and a new job and a lifetime pension for the puppet.

All while the local mainstream media parroted the excuse that the rigged election was the result of “incompetence …”

Now, fast-forward … 

This week, the Richland County election commission fired its director, Harold Jackson – a guy who (thankfully for the citizens of this is not going gently into that good night.

According to Jackson there is evidence of illegal activity perpetrated by the commission – not to mention absentee ballots from the 2012 election that were never counted.

Wow …

Jackson says he has turned his evidence over to the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) – but as we’ve seen in numerous prior cases that’s like throwing it into a weighted suitcase and tossing that suitcase into the ocean.

We’re not saying anything different will come of turning the information over to the USDOJ (which has had almost a year-and-a-half to open a case against the Richland County robbers), but Jackson should at the very least get his information on the record with the federal authorities.

Beginning in 2010, a deliberate effort was undertaken by state and local leaders based in Richland County to rig an election – costing taxpayers $1.2 billion. As we’ve said before, this “cannot be allowed to stand.”

The result of this election must be undone, the ill-gotten gains obtained by its fraudulent passage must be returned to taxpayers and the politicians and bureaucrats who stole the money must be held accountable.

That’s what justice demands in this case …

Alan Wilson - maybe "Toast" February 27, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Bobby Harrell – There’s a criminal I’d like to see Holder prosecute.

But I’ll hold my fire and wait for Alan Wilson.

And if Wilson doesn’t indict and convict Harrell (pushing aside Toal), Wilson is toast.

Toal is all over this election debacle front to back, side to side. She is protecting Harrell with all her might – but could be bought if some politician comes in with a better power deal for her. She’s gotten what she wanted out of Harrell now.

A U. S. Attorney told me point blank that they don’t like to get involved in state and local politics “unless they have to do so.” This was specifically pointed at Toal’s 2006-2007 investigation that never went anywhere. Nettles – who rumor has it now is considering putting his hat in the ring to replace Clyburn – will do all he can to protect Toal.

Isn’t there a trilateral commission to investigate, or an alien file that hasn’t been opened?

Squishy123 February 27, 2014 at 3:11 pm

Isn’t Lillian McBride responsible for absentee ballots?

Your expectations are too high February 27, 2014 at 3:46 pm

Holder is acting. He’s acting like a jackass.

Same ol' Same ol' February 27, 2014 at 3:50 pm

Nothing to see here, move along. Same ol’ Same ol’.

Holder will do nothing. Time for Nettles to go. He’s protecting too many Democrats, We all know it, Bill.

CNSYD February 27, 2014 at 5:51 pm

I am sure that Holder will immediately jump into this since Sic Willie called him out. We all know what happens when Sic Willie gets on your case. Sic Willie has told us how Spurrier stepped up his game as a result of Sic Willie getting on him. I wouldn’t expect any less from Holder.

Squishy123 February 27, 2014 at 6:28 pm

Holder was too busy today, trying to do us all a favor and dropping dead.

JJEvans February 28, 2014 at 8:31 am

Too bad he failed at that.

Attorney General Eric Holder is a criminal.

Nothing will be done — the greater cockroaches protecting/hiding from the lesser cockroaches…

GrandTango February 27, 2014 at 8:33 pm

HOLDER MUST ACT….that may be the most ignorant statement FITS has ever made..and remember: FITS warned that the USC Baseball Team would vacate its championships…

It shows FITS has a not a clue about the level of cretin in the Obama Administration…The only way Holder would follow the law, is if it fits his and Obama’s witch hunt on their political enemies.

Than the Rich-Co crooks are cut from the same Devil’s hide and Obama and Holder…Feeding their Greed and implementing REVENGE is ALL they care about…

Don’t you mean Rich Koch crooks?

Neil February 28, 2014 at 2:58 pm

Koch brothers are ranked 59th in donations. Highest donors donate to democrats but don’t let that stop your overhyping of them.

vicupstate February 28, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Yeah, I noticed how they went back all the way to 1989 to help dilute the size of the Koch numbers. Also, they count Act Blue (#1 on the list) as a single entity, when it fact it represents donations from millions of people in literally thousands of races.

There are lies, damn lies and statistics.

You think this subhuman cares about Democrats rigging the system in Richland County? He probably sent them all gift cards to the Walmarts for their stellar work.

scotty February 28, 2014 at 11:00 am

Who in there right mind would expect DOJ to investigate a corrupt voting operation. I guess you missed the speech last week were Holder told the State AG to enforce the laws they agree with. Corruption is not on the menu for Holder nor is enforcing drug laws or any other law he doesn’t like.
