WILLIAM BREAZEALE’S TROUBLED PAST COMES TO LIGHT IN PALMETTO RACE …
William J. Breazeale is running for Adjutant General of South Carolina … but Palmetto State residents might want to think twice before giving him their vote.
Breazeale – whose campaign is based in Florence, S.C. – has had some serious personal issues in has past. Well … in his present, too. In fact according to court documents from Seminole County, Florida, Breazeale is currently facing charges of cyberstalking and aggravated stalking of his second wife, Kathryn Breazeale – a municipal city manager in the Sunshine State.
According to documents obtained by the Seminole Chronicle, Breazeale allegedly told his wife he “would destroy her and if he can’t have her, no one would.”
Kathryn Breazeale called the police shortly after the alleged threat was made and told them she was in “grave danger.”
Breazeale’s wife filed a restraining order against her husband in November 2012, but the former Iraq War veteran apparently did not abide by that injunction – repeatedly following her and making “public displays” in her presence.
This isn’t the first time Breazeale has reportedly had issues like this …
In June 1994 he and his first wife Cheryl divorced – and by January 1995 Breazeale was accused of aggravated stalking in connection with their relationship.
“I’ll blow your f*cking head off,” Breazeale allegedly told his mother-in-law not long after his first divorce. “I’ll shoot every damn one of you, and ain’t nobody going to stop me.”
Breazeale ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Congress in North Carolina in 2008 and 2010. After his 2010 defeat in the GOP primary, a group of Iraq War veterans demanded Breazeale return their $1,000 campaign contribution due to “appalling behavior and comments.”
Breazeale is supposed to hold a conference call with South Carolina reporters this week to address the allegations against him.
Breazeale is a graduate of Francis Marion University in Florence, S.C. In fact he is the “brains” behind an effort to bring NCAA football to the government-run college.
So far his campaign has reported raising only $7,500 – all of it personal funds from the candidate.
