SC House Race Pits Stepmom Vs. Stepdaughter

A South Carolina political soap opera has spawned an interesting electoral matchup …

Twenty-three-year-old Heather Wood, daughter of veteran Palmetto political consultant Kerry Wood, will run against her stepmother Donna Wood (R-Spartanburg) for the S.C. State House seat won by the latter in 2012.

For those of you keeping score at home that’s Wood versus Wood … with another Wood working the sidelines.

Heather Wood filed paperwork this weekend to run against her stepmom for the S.C. House District 37 seat – the latest development in a nasty separation that has this family’s dirty laundry being aired in public.

“Very proud of her for stepping up even though I wish this was taking place under different circumstances,” Kerry Wood wrote on his Facebook page.

Kerry Wood has accused his soon-to-be ex-wife of using her position as a public official to threaten him and improperly involve local law enforcement in their domestic dispute. Earlier this week he hinted that he would be running a candidate against her.

“I run candidates all the time to take out incumbents … just taking on another race and will run to win like I always do,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

Heather Wood – an account manager for an Upstate marketing firm – says that she won’t be relying exclusively on her father for political advice.

“I’ve worked plenty of campaigns myself,” she told FITS. “I think I can handle this one.”

Donna Wood declined to comment on her step-daughter’s candidacy, referring us to her attorney – fellow S.C. Rep. Doug Brannon (RINO-Spartanburg).

“Representative Wood has done an excellent job taking care of her constituents and that should be the focus of this race, not personal family issues being aired in a political setting,” Brannon told FITS.

Brannon added that the marriage between the Woods was “a short marriage” and that the two should just “go their separate ways.”

“Unfortunately one party doesn’t seem to want that,” Brannon said.

Can someone tell me what “incumbents he takes out all the time?’ I would love to see a list.

TontoBubbaGoldstein March 29, 2014 at 5:22 pm

Maybe he takes them out to dinner and proposes?

Heather, a 23-year-old who has, “Worked on plenty of campaigns”??? Oh pul-eeze.

I think it is time to forget the whole clan.

“Attempts to obtain commentary on this from Heather’s brother, Morning Wood, were unsuccessful as of press time.”

jimlewisowb March 29, 2014 at 7:16 pm

Her Uncle Dead Wood was also unavailable

Her first cousin Balsa Wood, who is a little soft on politics, refused to comment

However her second cousin on her Daddy’s side, Half Wood was going to issue a statement as soon as he got back in town from Lexington where he is consulting former Mayor Halfwit in his upcoming write in candidacy for Lexington Town Council

Her kissin’ cuzin’ Mr. Woodrow “Woodie” (aka THE Woodie) Wood and his wife, and their 14 kids are prancing around just waiting to get to the polls!

What kind of wood doesn’t float?

We’re bad – and I’m almost ashamed to say that I want to see some cleavage! (sigh – like in the days of yore)

jimlewisowb March 30, 2014 at 8:31 am

To hell with cleavage

Skippy needs to pop out a couple of blue veined titties

Maybe he could contact that young lady over in the Pee Dee area that hosted a tv show awhile back

I’m sure Buz knows how to get in touch with her

shifty henry March 30, 2014 at 8:51 am

Thanks, Jim, — I was attempting to be delicate.

CorruptionInColumbia March 30, 2014 at 12:15 am

Do you know why Natalie wouldn’t take a shower while on the yacht?

She would rather wash up on shore.

MashPotato March 30, 2014 at 12:16 pm

Not a joke, but I did know a woman named Holly Wood.

CorruptionInColumbia March 30, 2014 at 12:32 pm

Oh God, do we know the same person? Was her name Holly (without the “e”) and did she marry a guy named Wood and combined the two? Was she a nurse?

MashPotato March 30, 2014 at 12:47 pm

Negative, Ghost Rider. She was a school teacher in Ohio.

Howie March 29, 2014 at 6:45 pm

Kerry gets these people to run and then lets them deal with the financial loss (it is always more expensive than they think!), the embarrassment, the family strain, etc. He is a cold hearted bastard. But he gets his money so he is just cool with it all.

We’re a happy family
We’re a happy family
We’re a happy family
Me mom and daddy

Siting here in Queens
Eating refried beans
We’re in all the magazines
Gulpin’ down thorazines

We ain’t got no friends
Our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send
Daddy likes men

Daddy’s telling lies
Baby’s eating flies
Mommy’s on pills
Baby’s got the chills

I’m friends with the President
I’m friends with the Pope
We’re all making a fortune
Selling Daddy’s dope

Does she cut her own hair?

CorruptionInColumbia March 30, 2014 at 12:16 am

Can’t tell for sure. She still has her pants on in the pic.

Jethro March 30, 2014 at 2:01 pm

What a guy! Sure did marry above himself. ……… DW got the short

end of that stick. You better run like Hell, SISTER!!! You still got time, cause he sure is making a mess of himself, dirty underwear and all.

He is certifiable. Yep, a real piece of work!

By the way, who was that sweet young thing with KW 2 weeks ago at the opera in Greenville? Oh yeh, that was the same day he leaked the story to Fits about the intimidating police escort (DW) to remove personal items from the home peacefully. AAAHHH, poor fella, and all on his birthday. So glad he didn’t have to spend his birthday alone, like he claimed.

KW wasn’t even there. (What a set up or just a wuzzy?) His daughter Heather was there. Now, that would have scared me. Maybe he was around the corner snapping pics.

I bet his fan club is all women. After all, he is such a sweet caring, fatherly type. Yeh, right! Jeckel and Hyde. Now, you can’t tell me that
Bozo doesn’t have enemies somewhere.

The guy claims he doesn’t have 2 nickles to rub together. So how is he going to run an aggressive campaign against an incumbent with no moola? You know, I have heard that there are some folks who just can’t tell the truth——- can even be a pussy cat to some and a SOB to others.

Liar, liar, DIRTY UNDERWEAR on fire. There is one sure way to get your message out there…..and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist either……….YEP, that would be FACEBOOK, and it never goes away. Mama always said, “be careful what you say, cause it may come back to bite ya”!!!!!
DW, I think I’d keep taking the high road. Can’t be blamed for something you don’t say. Yeh, my Mama always said and she was always right!!!!!
Keep running GIRL…. You still got time!!!! Better roads ahead.

Candidate Questions for Wood vs. Wood political debate.

Q: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

A: A woodchuck could chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck can’t chuck wood.

Q: But if a woodchuck could chuck and would chuck some amount of wood, what amount of wood would a woodchuck chuck?

Q: Even if a woodchuck could chuck wood, and even if a woodchuck would chuck wood, should a woodchuck chuck wood?

A: A woodchuck should chuck wood if a woodchuck could chuck wood, so long as a woodchuck would chuck wood.

Nothing like doing the family laundry in public while running for office.

Better to see someone’s drawers than the alternative when they’re showing their ass, I suppose.

DH-W, what a shame you were snookered by the charm! I have been very impressed with your ability to keep moving forward, and not getting drawn into the hatefulness that is being aired about you. What better way to confuse the voters, than to run your daughter against your ex-wife, both having the same last name? I am sure that post card that HW sent out accusing DH-W of using an illegal name, was a waste of time and money. Where’s the postcard from HW listing her own many “talents, tatoos, and body piercings”? Come on folks! How many people will mess up and hire KW in the future after watching the way he trashed a lady that he once claimed to love, and heck that was only a short time ago.
