AND THE CHARLESTON “POST AND CORRUPTION” HELPS HIM DO IT … 

S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell is desperate to do something … anything … to shift the onus in his ongoing public corruption saga.

The embattled official’s latest adventure in “blame deflection?” Harrell has invoked the tired old “regional envy” theory into the scandal swirling around his Speakership … suggesting efforts to diminish the influence of the South Carolina Lowcountry (and specifically Charleston, S.C.) are behind the investigation into his numerous corrupt dealings.

During a radio appearance in Charleston earlier this week, Harrell told WTMA 1250 AM host Tara Servatius “we had a lot of folks in powerful positions from down here” and that geography was one reason he was being “targeted.”

Sheesh …

Facing a backlash over his asinine remark, Harrell sprung into damage control mode – ringing up his public relations agency (errr, local newspaper), The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier.

Always willing to lend Harrell a hand, the Post and Courier   published a story in which Harrell claimed that “other Charleston Republicans” were responsible for promoting the theory, not him.

“I’ve had a number of people from the Lowcountry tell me that they think that’s what’s going on and that’s what I was trying to express on the radio,” he told the paper. “I don’t think there’s anything that organized going on, but I am hearing that just about everywhere I go in the Lowcountry.”

Really?

That’s news to us … and to Charlestonians.

“I know of no person repeating what Harrell claims in the article,” one of Harrell’s constituents told FITS. “I live in the Lowcountry — more specifically, in Harrell’s district. If anything, people disparage or curse Harrell when his name is mentioned.”

Which is exactly as it should be …

Even more telling is how the Post and Courier  refers to the investigation surrounding Harrell as being tied to “ethics-related allegations that he used campaign funds for personal use.” Talk about an understatement.

Harrell isn’t just accused of campaign finance violations, there’s a whole host of shady behavior being looked at by S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson’s grand jury. And then there are the corrupt lengths to which Harrell has gone in an effort to evade accountability for his actions.

Sadly such “home cooking” from this ethically challenged publication is nothing new … as the Post and Courier  has repeatedly sought to provide Harrell with cover for his dirty dealings.

Frankly this whole episode isn’t just embarrassing for Harrell, it’s another embarrassment for South Carolina’s Fourth Estate.

I live in his district too. No one is saying this that I know of, but people like Harrell are always surrounded by at least a few sycophants who will literally say ANYTHING to keep the princeling’s ego inflated.

Nixon also had a lot of people telling him he was a poor victim.

Harrell sounds almost paranoid. Maybe between that shit on his lip the other week and his paranoid behavior we are seeing symptoms of meth addiction.

Nixon at times probably believed he wasn’t guilty he was so drunk on power. He actually managed to rationalize almost all his behavior(Frost interview).

hmmm “upstate vs low country”. I was born and raised in Charleston and went to college in the upstate. Just so I’ll know…who is winning this war? I had no idea their even was one, but I’m interested in your theories and would like to hear more about them.

Reply
CNSYD May 8, 2014 at 9:07 am

When Greenville controlled the Legislature (the only governing body in SC with any power) I heard from Low Country legislators that they were getting screwed. When Charleston was in power, the same lament came from Upstate legislators. When the Barwell ring was in power, Hollings actually used that as part of his gubernatorial campaign. I also distinct recall the Hollings-Marshall Parker election. Where Upstate vs Low Country was used. Not in public but in the one-on-one mode.

IRT to “winners”, it depends on who is in power and who isn’t.

Post and Courier need to stop this nonsense of pandering to politicians and influential people in the Charleston area. Its getting a little disgusting.They are already well known to be a mouth piece of Mayor Riley, The beach company, MUSC, Harrells, politicians, many local attorneys….the list goes on and on. Public service and honest journalism appears to be last on their minds these days. Guess its…”make hay while the corruption shines”. They ran a column of Judge Casey Manning and his basketball days….and its as if they are preparing the mind of the readers that Manning will throw the case back to the ethics committee….and we then should not doubt the integrity of that noble fella.
Let the Psyops begin…in favor of a future Harrell so desires. If P&C recieves $12 million subsidies from the government per year, they should realize that this is tax payers money and they do have a responsibility to side with the tax payers. Maybe we all should petition to scrap that $12 million subsidy and then see which way the wind blows.

Free market is what Sic Willie is all about. The P&C, a tightly held private corporation, is a free market paper. Therefore they can say (or not say) and write (or not write) anything they like (within the bounds of libel laws). You are not required to buy it or read it. Isn’t that how free markets work?

Agree with you there. But we all, as educated people, know the power of the media and how it effects our lives. The things that directly effect my life is what I am concerned about and speak out against, at the most basic level. Additionally, we are also variously conscious about the higher level functions in the society we live in….and therefore the opinion on P&C. Free market allows opinions…you suppose?

The little fly in your ointment is that if the P&C is a recipient of favored tax status, and then gets pushed around in regards to what they write, how it’s written, etc., when then they are NOT a “free market private corporation”.

They are crony paper run in a regulated market….

CNSYD May 8, 2014 at 10:28 am

Do you get “favored” tax status? Do you get to deduct mortgage interest. Do you pay real property tax at the 4% level? Seems you may be a “recipient” also. So I guess you are not “free market” either and can pushed around.

You just demonstrated that you don’t “get” it.

Yes, it’s all not a “free market” as some people are getting tax favors and some not.

Is it that hard to understand?

A “free market” means freedom from any interference in exchage between people. That means freedom from taxes, tax incentives, etc. et al

CNSYD May 8, 2014 at 1:07 pm

So there is no “free market”. Is that what you are saying?

Yep May 8, 2014 at 1:55 pm

Bobby Harrell can effect The P&C’s tax status far easier than he could our property tax. P&C’s tax status is more of a bargaining chip.

Amen. See my comment above regarding the state newsprint tax exemption enjoyed by the P&C and controlled by Harrell, estimated to be around $10 million per year.

P&C does NOT publish articles critical of HARRELL.

The P&C article quoted here is a perfect example: lacking news content, it simply contains quotes by Harrell defending himself against unnamed critics.

Another reason my wife and I cancelled our P&C subscription and get it from the neighbor once a week in a bundle. (We read the gardening and cooking articles.)

The Post and Courier is gone off the deep end. The charge of aiding and abetting can be brought against anyone who directly helps someone else in the commission of a crime, even if they do not participate. Being from Charleston myself, the talk everywhere is that Harrell has gone off the deep end. Nobody in the low country much believes anything – and I repeat – ANYTHING he says. All the talk is that if Manning lets him off the hook, then Manning is in the pockets of organized crimes (the Legislatures). To take his case to WTMA … pffttt … another attempt to save his ass and the ass of his cohorts and cronies. I laugh, because it didn’t work. It just makes him look more guilty than he really is. He should be hammered to TURN OVER HIS RECORDS! He’s finished. Manning or not. Harrell is finished. He has lost the battle already. He loses his cars, his homes, his investments, his dignity, and his pride. He better be sent to prison. No Probation. No community service. Nothing but a nice long PRISON sentence for the scum.

Small Planes Get The Word Out May 8, 2014 at 5:54 pm

Pay Attention Closely ~~~~~~ 4th of July ~~~ Charleston Beaches are packed with 10s of thousands of beach goers ~~~~ A nice banner being towed by a plane flying low over the low country beaches that reads, “SC House Spkr Bobby Harrell Is Corrupt.” …. Wanna see it happen?

Now THAT would be hilarious AND newsworthy. Problem is, the only guy I know of rich enough to own an airplane is … Harrell. But, yes, get the word out… Make my day.

I hear that native South Carolina indians are calling bobby’s wife, “Bear With Wide Canyon,” and “Doe Who Can Not Keep Legs Closed.”

Bobby reminds us of our friend Alex who does this to his typical South Carolinian every day. A bit warped but he IS our leader.

Simple. If he did nothing wrong, stop fighting the investigation. Let them find nothing and look like fools. If Harrell IS crooked, then he needs to keep obstructing justice just like he’s doing. His actions are telling me he’s guilty…. and it will follow him even if he derails the investigation. see more 2 u must sign in to down-vote this post.

If I read these comments about my character, I’d find myself a tall bridge to jump from. But then I have a conscience, and Harrell has neither character nor conscience. In days gone by, he’d be lynched or taken into slavery far, far away.
