FIRING OF LOCAL OFFICIAL CREATES A MUCH LARGER SCANDAL …
Ready for another story about black leaders selling out black kids in an effort to protect black bureaucrats? And another story showcasing how government really works in chronically corrupt South Carolina?
If not … get ready.
Not long ago FITS reported on the firing of corrupt Colleton County, S.C. superintendent of education Leila Williams, who was caught red-handed misusing public funds for personal purposes and hiring felons. Williams was also at the center of a massive grade tampering scandal … calling into question the academic gains she and her supporters frequently touted in defending her corrupt administration.
Additionally, the S.C. Department of Education (SCSDE) has opened additional investigations into Williams’ administration since our last report.
Anyway, back in March the Colleton County school board voted 4-3 to terminate Williams’ employment (well, after giving her a $130,000 severance deal).
The NAACP’s response? It flipped out. You know … because Williams is black.
In fact the local NAACP leader in Colleton County said board members who voted against Williams would be “out of office next election.”
Fast-forward to this week, and a shocking story from reporter Drew Tripp of Colleton Today that turns this garden variety racial spat into something much more sinister …
According to Tripp, S.C. Sen. Clementa Pinckney – who is no stranger to enabling corrupt black bureaucrats in failing government-run school districts – has succeeded in sneaking a bill through the S.C. General Assembly that gerrymanders district lines in Colleton County in an effort to make it exponentially harder for Williams’ opponents to win reelection.
According to Tripp, the redistricting legislation Pinckney snuck through the legislature includes district lines that make “unexplained jumps across obvious natural boundaries they had been following.”
Not only that, Pinckney pushed his bill through the legislative process without consulting local school board members, his colleagues on the Colleton County legislative delegation or the citizens affected by the rezoning.
S.C. Sen. Chip Campsen told Colleton Today Pinckney’s actions were “totally inappropriate,” “underhanded,” “shocking,” and “terrible.”
We concur …
Pinckney’s naked act of political retribution is the latest example of a troubling trend of corruption in South Carolina. Not content to manipulate and abuse budgetary or legislative processes, corrupt Palmetto politicians are now going straight to the ballot box – abusing and manipulating the sanctity of the democratic process itself in an effort to achieve their political ends.
The most glaring example of this? The “Richland County Robbery” of 2012 – in which voting machine shortages were deliberately targeted toward predominantly white, anti-tax precincts in an effort to suppress turnout and secure passage of a $1.2 billion tax hike.
Astoundingly, this election fraud has gone totally uninvestigated by the U.S. Department of Justice … which we suspect is exactly what will happen in this case as well.
Are you JUST figuring this out????..and you were the TOP STOOGE for a SC Governor..
No [email protected]*n wonder we’re so messed up…
PS: FITS also told us Voter Integrity requirements are Racist….Go figure…
Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.
You don’t hate corruption and lies, you are an immoral person….and the democrat party, NAACP included, is corrupt, as much as FITS lies about who, and what, he is…
Yet you shill for Bobby Harrell? Oh, right, it’s okay for Repuglicunts to do it?
If Harrell is guilty, let him be convicted and pay the price…I don’t know WTF your stupid @$$ is talking about…same w/ Haley IF you could ever find something REAL, and not manufactured by democrats…
South Carolina needs transparency in everything in education!
The really ‘larger scandal’ is that the TEA-Partyingest TEA Partiers form coalitions over and over with the SC Legislative Black Caucus and no one in the press or even bloggers pay attention.
They did it on the first Amazon vote, the denial of the tax break – I think, at the least, that was the opportunity for the SCLBC to show the TEA Party what they had. They did it on a bill that I can’t recall this early in the morning, but that was linked to on this site last week. They did it on drawing redistricting lines so that you have the TEA Party working to draw Democrats out of office except when it can create black districts and the SC Legislative Black Caucus goes right along, is happy with the bones the GOP throws and works against the party they claim to be a part of.
So, if Clementa Pinckney gripes you butt, talk to a TEA Partier and see what deal they cut with him.
S.C. Sen. Chip Campsen told Colleton Today Pinckney’s actions were ”totally inappropriate,” “underhanded,” “shocking,” and “terrible.”
…..Much like Campsen’s support and vote for Jean Hoefer Toal.
Campsen sold out to Toal because his bff Tom Davis told him to do so. Something was up with that move by those Republicans bro’s to go vote for the head cheerleader of the Democratic Party in South Carolina.
And Clementa Pinckney is a minister… what a disgusting excuse of a “christian”.
If they could only all be me!
All of this lands in the laps of our legislature and dumb folks that keep allowing folks to milk America dry because of their race!
It’s amazing to me how much time that people in politics have in figuring out ways to screw each other and the taxpayers. Politics is obviously a lucrative way to make a living. Pols are the worst kind of parasite in existence.
and not just here. Guvner Christie promised workers in NJ a nice pension in NJ but then recently failed to make an $800 million payment to the state pension fund due overall revenue shortfalls.
I think you have to be a good liar to do politics. To smile while you turn the knife. To practice cronyism. and generally to do everything you need to raise your profile at the expense of others. It is so corrupt.
Looks like nobody read the House and Senate Journals for words like “Colleton County” in the bill descriptions.
Really, is there anyone who gives a rat’s ass what goes on in Colleton County or Jasper County
The only thing missing from the cockroach leaders in these two counties are the khaki Army fatigues with gold braid stretching from their adam’s apple to their scrotums
If you want change, then find a few worn out jeeps, some machetes, a few AK 47’s and arm an opposing tribe to annihilate the sons of bitches of the ruling tribe
Of course once this happens the new tribe leaders will do the same things as the old tribe leaders did
As for as Cockroach Campsen’s outrage it just goes to show that Cockroach Pinckney is smarter than Cockroach Campsen which is not shocking at all
Wait a minute – these are all black people!
[EDITH! where’s my gun?]
Well why hasn’t our chief law enforcement officer in Richland Co. Sheriff Lott done anything about the largest theft in S.C. history. Oh I forgot he is a Democrat..Looks like we need a lot of new so called leaders, in every County.
He’ll need to consult with his ole buddy Uncle Joe.
Right wingers complaining about gerrymandering? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Maybe you need to change that DIA to DA…[email protected]$$….
Sanctity. Good one.
Memo to all Cockroaches: — UNITE!!
Why didn’t Campsen do anything to stop this when it passed through the Senate?
