RGA Launches Another Attack Ad Against Vincent Sheheen

BACK TO THE WELL …  The Republican Governors Association isn’t backing down from its controversial ad targeting S.C.

BACK TO THE WELL … 

The Republican Governors Association isn’t backing down from its controversial ad targeting S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden) in his 2014 gubernatorial bid against incumbent “Republican” Nikki Haley.

In fact the national organization – which is betting big on Haley’s reelection – has launched another spot along the very same lines … refining and reinforcing its previous attack on Sheheen as an unscrupulous trial lawyer who gets dramatically reduced sentences for dangerous sex offenders.

“Have you heard the news about Vincent Sheheen?” the spot’s female narrator asks.

We have … we broke the news, actually.

“Sheheen represented a sex offender who abused a minor and court papers show he negotiated the man’s sentence from ten years to thirty-eight days,” a news anchor states.

The ad’s narrator goes on to say “Sheheen personally represented dangerous criminals – reducing their jail time, putting them back on the street.”

“Vincent Sheheen: He represents criminals, not us,” the narrator concludes – echoing the refrain from the group’s previous spot.

Take a look …

(Click to play)

Yeah …

The national response to the first round of pro-Haley RGA attack ads has been one of revulsion – particularly from the left.

Liberal website ThinkProgress referred to the first anti-Sheheen spot as “the most atrocious political ad of 2014.”

“If you want to run for office some day, you better not believe that everyone is entitled to legal counsel before the government locks them away,” reporter Ian Millhiser noted.

Meanwhile Washington, D.C. politico Taegan Goddard wondered aloud whether the first pro-Haley spot was the “most negative political ad ever,” noting the commercial “sets a new standard for nasty.”

Cue up the outrage again, people …

As intellectually dishonest as these ads may be, it’s clear they are moving numbers in Haley’s favor – otherwise the group wouldn’t be going to the well again with the same concept.

“They’re doubling down,” one Palmetto politico told FITS.

As we’ve said time and time again, no one ever lost an election appealing to the intellectual incuriosity of the average South Carolinian – who is unlikely to move beyond the simplistic “Sheheen is bad” message these ads convey.

Sheheen’s response to the pro-Haley broadside? That the governor has her own, much larger issues when it come to watching out for the well-being of children in the Palmetto State – most notably the ongoing debacle that is her Department of Social Services (SCDSS).

Missed that scandal? We’ve got the latest (HERE and HERE). Oh, and there’s ironically an RGA connection to that scandal, too.

After nearly rebounding from a 21-point deficit against Haley in 2010, Sheheen has been running an abysmal race this go-round. Most notably, he’s failed to find a way to get to the right of the increasingly liberal Haley on the bread and butter fiscal issues voters care about.

After receiving the GOP nomination in 2010, Haley abandoned her Tea Party roots and began a fast-paced sprint to the state’s political “center.” Since taking office in 2011, she’s advanced a fiscally liberal agenda on taxesspendingeducation and (most notably) government-subsidized health care.

UPDATE: Lawyers in South Carolina are reportedly preparing a response to the attacks against Sheheen …

So Haley’s lawyers should probably screw her over the way she wants Sheheen to screw over his clients so they can run for office later.

Still they have good reason to fear the Dem challanger. You have an upstate super-hero who will siphone off a huge number of votes from Haley. Unless she’s leading by 35%, she’s still in serious trouble.

Ervin will take votes from Sheheen. They are both democrats…I don’t agree that he’ll hurt Haley.

Otherwise: Erving would have stayed in the GOP Primary. Haley and the RGA are just making sure people know who Sheen is, so they’ll vote for Ervin instead of Sheheen. It’s pretty smart strategy.

DSS Looking Into Another Child Death

A state official confirmed that the Department of
Social Services is looking into the death of a child, after The
Greenville News inquired about the investigation.

COLUMBIA – A state official confirmed that the Department of Social Services is looking into the death of a child, after The Greenville News inquired about the investigation.

Marilyn Matheus, a spokeswoman for DSS, gave The News
few details about the child or the investigation and said authorities
have not yet determined the cause of death. She said the investigation
began early last month, but the agency could not find the family until
Friday.

“We can confirm that we started an investigation on March
3, 2014,” she said Friday evening. “We were not able to locate the
family despite numerous attempts until this afternoon. We are continuing
our investigation. While the coroner has not, as yet, determined the
cause of death, our hearts go out to everyone who knew and loved this
child.”

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said the child was 5
months old but he could not say more until he completes his review of
records.

The death comes as lawmakers and gubernatorial candidates are scrutinizing DSS’ handling of cases of child abuse and neglect.

Petition gubernatorial candidate Tom Ervin told The News
last week that he would fire DSS Director Lillian Koller as his first
act as governor, citing details that have spilled from months of Senate
hearings about the agency.

His call for Koller’s ouster follows
similar calls from Democratic Sen. Vincent Sheheen, who also is running
for governor; from Sen. Joel Lourie, a Democrat who sits on the Senate
panel that is looking at DSS; and Sen. Katrina Shealy, a Lexington
Republican who serves on the panel with Lourie.

Gov. Nikki Haley
has maintained support for Koller, whom she appointed in 2011. Her
spokesman has said that child fatalities have dropped by 25 percent
under Koller, adoptions have increased by 11 percent and family services
have improved.

In Senate hearings, two county coroners said DSS
is failing to adequately protect children, a former deputy director for
the agency testified she believes numeric goal-setting has become more
important than children’s needs, and a former county director and a
coroner said they have heard DSS workers talk of being pressured and
intimidated to reach goals.

Koller has testified that child safety
is her top priority and while the intake system at the agency needs
improving, she would not concede the agency was breaking the law or
placing goals above the safety of children.

Among the cases that
senators have examined was the beating death of a 4-year-old Richland
County boy who had been removed from the home and returned after a
family court judge disagreed with DSS’ request to remove the boy.

Koller
told senators the agency mishandled the intake process in the boy’s
case and that eight DSS workers involved in it no longer work at the
agency, some of whom were fired. But she said the workers were not
responsible for the boy’s death.

Love all this slamming of lawyers – note heavy sarcasm. It is lots of fun to trash us – until you need us to get you out of jail or a traffic ticket or a too high child support payment or to evict a tenant or to help with a tax problem. We are the ones holding your hand through family court and probate court and criminal court and magistrate court. Sure we get paid (and we do a hell of a lot of pro bono work), but usually nowhere near what we are worth. I also can’t begin to tell you how much money I have lost on unscrupulous clients who never paid their bills even after getting a good result. There are also the innumerable number of clients whose bills I have “comped” in whole or in part because it was the right things to do and they needed a break. Sure there are a few bad lawyers, just like there are a few bad doctors, accountants, truck drivers, etc. The majority of lawyers, however, take great pride in our profession, contribute substantially to our communities, and hold ourselves to high ethical standards. For all of us who uphold the Constitution and get your ass out of trouble, you should be grateful.

With all the LE and prosecutorial misconduct going on – as noted by SC Supreme Court Justice Beatty a few months ago – we all should have the insight to know that any of us can be arrested and prosecuted for a crime we did not commit at any time…and, need a good defense attorney if it happens.
I live in a county where a big Haley supporter, one who flies her around on his private plane, practices. I, and everyone in the county, know for a fact he has made his fortune as a criminal defense lawyer and has defended serial child molesters, got one bail and the guy actually got arrested for another molestation while he was out.

Donald Sterling Apologizes

LOS ANGELES (The Borowitz Report) — The Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling offered a “total and remorseful” apology for his racist comments today, telling reporters, “Once I saw that Donald Trump was defending me, I knew I had done something horribly wrong.”

Sterling acknowledged that he had turned a blind eye to a mountain of criticism from basketball luminaries and national leaders, but said that seeing Trump defend him on Fox News on Monday had left him “shaken.”

“Look, I know I’m not perfect,” he said. “But when Donald Trump takes your side, you have to take a long, hard look in the mirror and ask yourself, ‘Have I become some kind of monster?’”

Sterling Says He Will Miss Being Around People He Hates

LOS ANGELES (The Borowitz Report) — After being banned by the N.B.A. Tuesday afternoon, the Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling told reporters that he would miss being around people he hates.

“Sure, I’m saddened by this,” Sterling said. “Sitting in the stands night after night, a boiling cauldron of hatred bubbling inside me — it doesn’t get better than that. Those were good times.”

“Knowing that I’ll never be able to sit in that arena again and look down on the people I despise — that hurts the most,” he said.

Looking back on his three-decade tenure with the Clippers, though, Sterling said he felt some measure of satisfaction: “No one hated more people than I did, and the feeling was mutual.”

Hated the ad at first. Then, when the Leftist ABA started talking about how it was shaming lawyers and may prevent them from running for office, I became instantly hooked and now think it a stroke of genius. Sure, I know that many lawyers are good people (and friends), and, I know that much of what they do is necessary to our society; however, I also know that many of the trial lawyers and lawyer legislators within this and other states are among the most corrupt folks within our society, Thus, if more of them were shamed into not running for public office, I’d have no problem with that.
