SC Political Soap Opera Update

THE LATEST “HOURGLASS SANDS” ON LAWMAKER’S MESSY SPLIT … In case you missed it (“ICYMI” as the cool kids say) a socially conservative lawmaker from the South Carolina Upstate is embroiled in a messy separation from her husband – a political consultant who has dropped some seismic allegations against her….


In case you missed it (“ICYMI” as the cool kids say) a socially conservative lawmaker from the South Carolina Upstate is embroiled in a messy separation from her husband – a political consultant who has dropped some seismic allegations against her.

Yeah … and you thought “Keckstrom” was the only B-grade political soap opera in this hillbilly haven?

Here’s our story on the drama surrounding S.C. Rep. Donna Wood (R-Spartanburg) – who has been accused by her husband Kerry Wood of using her position as a public official to threaten him and improperly involve local law enforcement in their domestic dispute.

Well, Kerry Wood took to his Facebook page again this week to warn of a “coming storm” in this messy drama.

“A storm is coming … I have repeatedly asked for an agreement in writing that she has everything she is going to take from me (as I sit in an empty house) and that she will leave me alone,” he writes. “She refuses and daily I get phone calls of more lies she has told. The support I have received has been overwhelming. Thanks to so many of you out there who know the truth and have offered your support. Several have advised me not to stoop to her level, not to go dark, not to be vindictive. I am not going to do that, but I am not going to be a floor mat either. I am going to simply do what I do best and that will be to remove an incumbent from their seat. Thank you all so much for the support, the advice, and even for the humor many have handed me in this. Now just warning about the coming storm and to let you know that no matter how bad things are about to look, I will remain ok.”

Yikes …

Kerry Wood goes on to say he will be running a Republican candidate against his wife – whose candidacy he managed during the most recent election cycle.

“I tried taking the high road for months, but when someone is relentless, what do you do?” he wrote. “I run candidates all the time to take out incumbents… just taking on another race and will run to win like I always do. It is just inevitable that this one will be personal. I completely funded her last campaign (about $20K) but she said I didn’t care enough or I would have given her more. Just last month I gave her data and walking list to her. I let her friend into my storage unit to get her campaign signs and all the while asking for a simply statement that she would leave me alone and she flat tells me she won’t. I’m a big believer that if the bully won’t stop, at some point you have to knock down the bully.”

Wow …

It gets better …

In a later comment, Kerry Wood accuses his wife of being … well, nuts.

“She has been told by a councilor that she need professional psychiatric help,” he writes. “I have (a) letter from her where she even admits she needs help and that she knows she hurts people. I’ve spent years feeling sorry for her, but now I have to take care of myself.”

Hmmmm …

Here’s all the drama, including a nice “tornado” visual.

Yeah …

FITS attempted to get a response from Donna Wood, but up to this point she and her attorney – liberal Spartanburg, S.C. Rep. Doug Brannon – have not responded to our requests.

You know? That may actually be the smart play here …

Ms. Woods is very smart to take a hike on this one. No comments. No statements. Run Ms. woods, run from this.

Maybe they can both turn to those “family values” Republicans–Sanford, Haley, and Eckstrom –for marital counseling.

shifty henry March 28, 2014 at 10:03 am

Better than that – get advice from the Fitsnews commentators!

Buz Martin March 28, 2014 at 12:13 pm

We should find a way to charge for this shit.

shifty henry March 28, 2014 at 1:10 pm

Let Fitsnews collect the money. Will can apply the money to new ads other than—
1) toenail fungus
2) how to grow your lashes without a doctor
3) rest in peace
4) 100,000th person ….

TontoBubbaGoldstein March 28, 2014 at 5:11 pm

TBG doesn’t get #2 & 3.

Got the white tongue, itchy rash, fatigue AND toenail fungus ad all rolled into one today, though.

Gotta run.

“Beautiful Russian Women are waiting to talk to [TBG].”

Gee, TBG, that’s too bad, and the weekend is just starting.

When I have my occasional fit of depression and start to feel sorry for myself, I turn to Facebook for some pathetic drama among so-called adults. I immediately realize that my life is grand compared to theirs. So thank you, crazy bastards, for the dirty laundry.
And btw, I love his phrase about his friends telling him “not to go dark”. That guy is a wordsmith.

Boo Hoo March 28, 2014 at 10:59 am

It’s called Rooms To Go you fat bastard – maybe she left because you whine like a pussy on your Facebook page.

Kerry Wood goes on to say he will be running a Republican candidate against his wife –



Go big or stay home.

…in an empty house.

MauldinBo March 29, 2014 at 4:06 pm

He is running a nice guy against State Treasurer Loftis. Lofits will probably beat the guy 70/30.
Why would Kerry throw a lamb like that into the fire? Money, that is why. He can soak the guy for a few bucks, ruin the fellows chance to ever get elected anywhere, and probably not even kiss him good bye when it is all done.

Pete March 29, 2014 at 5:08 pm

I know Brian, the guy running against Loftis. He is a nice guy but clueless. If he spent 4 years preparing he would make a good candidate. Kerry, who I also know, should be ashamed of himself for talking these people into what can be embarrassing events in their life. A bad loss can cost people business, money, respect, and self esteem It can cause family troubles.
know, I watched my brother do that very thing.

JJEvans March 28, 2014 at 1:39 pm

I find it amusing how some people plaster their fucked-up lives on Facebook.

In other trash news, does anyone think it is a coincidence that it was “leaked” that Richard Breibart gave $ 28,000.00 in stolen money to Alan Wilson’s campaign the weekend before the filing date for Wilson’s re-election? It will be interesting to see how the secret investigation into Breibart’s finances by Jean Toal’s ODC hoodlums will compare to the FBI’s accounting.

euwe max March 28, 2014 at 3:56 pm

Maybe we can exhume Breitbart and hang him… oops wrong guy.

Inciteful March 28, 2014 at 3:05 pm

Kerry is the nut job here. It’s a sad situation. Donna is a quiet, kind Christian person (a pastor, no less) you got hoodwinked by this sleeze bag a few years ago. He ignored her for years then threw her out. His posts, tweets, and passings of gas are attempts to revive enough political significance to find an unsuspecting client. He’s a con man. Donna enjoys the support of many repoublican and church groups. This gentle woman’s mistake was in marrying badly. She has not uttered a harsh word about him in public or in private. Her non-response to such nonsense is a mark of her grace.

Political consultants are fucked-up.

Carolyn Callison March 28, 2014 at 4:53 pm

Is it just me, but is Mr. Wood using his messy but not even kindergarten sandbox worthy “who gives a shit” woes as a pathetic attempt to drum up business for his one-man sideshow of political consulting!
Granted all politicians, especially here with the likes of “Icky” Haley, Miss Lindsey Graham and “Black on the Outside, Wingnut on the Inside” Scott, are whores, but even the biggest and busiest whores don’t want anyone involved with their sleazy business who puts their shit in the street.
The best we can hope for is that he and his douchebag ex are BOTH history after the November election!

Inciteful March 28, 2014 at 5:40 pm

Kerry Wood just trotted his own daughter (who lives with him) down to file to run against his estranged wife! (He married one candidate and fathered her competitor!) Guess he didn.t have the nerve to run himself, couldn’t find anyone else, and got her to do it. Let’s have a contest. What’s that called?
