TREY HARRELL TIED TO ATTACKS ON ATTORNEY GENERAL

Trey Harrell – son of embattled S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell (RINO-Charleston) – is reportedly among the authors contributing articles to a trio of websites bashing S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson.

FITS reported exclusively this week on a network of websites allegedly organized by Harrell supporters for the purpose of attacking Wilson – who is currently conducting a public corruption investigation into Harrell’s multiple alleged abuses of power.

Or trying to conduct an investigation … 

The younger Harrell – a Columbia, S.C. attorney – has been publicly active in sharing the content of these websites, promoting them via his social media pages.

No secret there …

But sharing content is one thing: According to sources familiar with the operation of the three websites – GOPWrite.comBetween the Chambers and Holy City Politics – Trey Harrell has also been active in creating content for the websites.

“In their system (Trey) Harrell sends the copy to an intermediary (who) then sends it to Chris,” our source explained, referring to Chris Slick – the ex-Harrell aide who is accused of orchestrating the website attacks on Wilson.

So … who is the intermediary?

According to our sources, the younger Harrell sends his content to South Carolina political consultant Thomas R. Higgs II – one of his longtime friends and another Palmetto operative said to be in the employ of the Speaker’s political organization.

“They organize everything and they promote the content,” our source said.

Additional names of contributing authors are reportedly set to be revealed in a forthcoming mainstream media story, although our sources declined to provide those names “out of deference to another media outlet.”

One source who admits to writing articles for GOPWrite.com disputed Harrell’s direct authorship of any anti-Wilson posts.

“I don’t think he writes but I understand he passes information,” the source said. “People pass articles along and Trey disseminates information to a multitude of blogs.”

Interesting …

This pro-Harrell network of websites has sought to impugn Wilson’s integrity at a time when the Speaker’s attorneys are arguing to have the Attorney General removed from the case. And while Wilson has certainly had his fair share of campaign finance issues (many of which have been reported by this website), his irregularities pale in comparison to the widespread corruption of which Speaker Harrell stands accused.

In fact an investigator familiar with the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) report on Bobby Harrell tells FITS that funding for some of the political attacks against Wilson could be coming from the same political account that Wilson’s office is investigating.

More on that in a future post …

Yes, but are they those little bitty German cockroaches that live under the fridge, behind the stove, or under the sink?

Or…are they the big Waterbugs that prefer living outdoors but sometimes get in your house, climb up the wall, and glide onto your face in the middle of the night when you are sound asleep?

Try to be more specific so I can take you seriously!

Madagascar hissing cockroaches (Gromphadorhina portentosa) are wingless and relatively slow moving. These nasty little bastards are native to the Holy City. They thrive on rest room floors and feed on decaying matter, primarily the dead carcuses of taxpayers who have the blood sucked out them by taxes and fees. Hissing cockroaches grow up to over 7 cm in length from horn to antennae and can measure up to 2.5 cm wide. Unlike other species, the female hissing cockroach gives birth to live young. Males are aggressive and use their horns in combat with rival males. The hissing which characterizes this species is used in defense, mating, political hierarchy and other communication.

Rhinoceros cockroaches(Macropanesthia rhinoceros), also known as giant burrowing cockroaches or litterbugs, are wingless, glossy, dark brown and stout-bodied. These fat ass cockroaches weigh more than 30 grams each and can exceed 8 centimeters in length. Native to Columbia, South Carolina for at least six months of each year, this species lives totally off the taxpayers and consumes primarily every thing they can touch, especially free buffets by their lobbyist cousins

The Harrells vs Alan Wilson. Turds vs a Piece of Shit. Both camps are seriously lacking in honesty and integrity. Is there any hope for the citizens of SC that they will just eat each other up and disappear?

I don’t know about the other sites Will noted, but the SC Write site seems to be the ultimate RINO experience for SC. If someone is a deceptive RINO, SC Write has his back. They also support the likes of Lindsey Graham and pseudo Pro-2A SC House Representative Mike Pitts from the Laurens/Greenwood area. Go figure.

“S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson racks up campaign finance irregularities”

SC AG Alan Wilson has accepted about $75,000 in over-the-legal-limit contributions from at least 32 donors.

…since 2009 the attorney general has accepted at least 105 contributions worth about $88,000 that were not initially disclosed on quarterly campaign finance disclosure forms – about $20,000 more than he has previously acknowledged.

Alan Wilson has amended campaign finance reports so many times that one critic called the number of changes “unprecedented” in modern South Carolina politics.

SC AG Alan Wilson’s infractions could carry fines up to 500 times the value of an individual contribution and jail time.

For a table of Alan Wilson’s recently disclosed contributions and over-the-limit contributors, go to postandcourier.com/wilson-co….

According to independent investigative reporters who have spoken with Harrell’s neighbors, they too think because of his weird and twisted behavior, that he must be guilty of stealing money and other felonies. Some one who is innocent would never act like this. Howe and Daniels obviously are condoning this sick and deranged conduct of their client and his cronies. Harrell is in self destruct mode. Wilson is doing the right thing by not stepping down to Harrell’s level. People are now saying that Harrell needs his ass physically kicked. Be done with this scum of the earth and throw him under the prison where he belongs.
