Curtis Loftis For State Treasurer

INCUMBENT ONE OF THE FEW WHO HAS “WALKED THE WALK …” 

This website doesn’t do many endorsements …

After all, endorsements are like … well, something everybody else has. Ummm … opinions. Yeah, that’s it.

Anyway … endorsing Curtis Loftis in his bid for a second term as Treasurer of South Carolina is the ultimate no-brainer, though. That’s because Loftis is one of those rare public figures who (gasp!) has actually done what he said he was going to do.

In stark contrast to the “hope and change” of Barack Obama – or the “movement” for reform led by Gov. Nikki Haley – Loftis has made good on the campaign rhetoric that swept him into office in 2010. He said he would be transparent – and unlike Obama and Haley (who campaigned on similar promises), he has been. He said he would protect taxpayers – and unlike almost every other politician (“Republican” or Democrat) in Columbia, S.C., he has. He said he would challenge the state’s corrupt status quo – and unlike virtually every other politician in state government, he has.

And then some …

Loftis has courageously taken on the state’s underperforming pension fund (a.k.a. the S.C. Retirement System Investment Commission) – and done so at great personal and political cost. In fact you’re reading this endorsement because the leaders of that corrupt fund went out and recruited an opponent to run against him in this spring’s GOP primary election. Otherwise Loftis – who ran unopposed in the 2010 general election – would have run unopposed this go-round.

Loftis has been a one-man wrecking crew when it comes to exposing the pension fund’s failures as well as the shameless self-serving behavior of its corrupt commissioners, led by Hugh Leatherman appointee Reynolds Williams.

Has so-called “reformer” Haley helped him in his efforts? Absolutely not. Her appointee to the commission actually led an effort to censure Loftis – and she’s been working behind the scenes to block an audit of the fund.

Prior to that, Williams led a failed effort to have Loftis removed from his fiduciary role on the commission – desperate to keep bad behavior (and worse results) hidden from public view.

What sort of behavior are we talking about?

Last September, this website exclusively reported on $1.4 million in bonuses paid out to the managers of this $25 billion fund – a surprisingly tone deaf move considering its abysmal performance.

Loftis was the only member of the commission to vote against these bonuses …

Time and again, Loftis has answered the bell. The guy even kept his famous campaign pledge to drive himself to work … in his own car (unlike other statewide officials).

Listen: Politicians promise voters the world when they run for office. Obama did it. Haley did it. Loftis did it.

The difference? Loftis has kept his promises – Obama and Haley haven’t. Whether you agree with Loftis or not, there’s no arguing that basic point: He’s done what he said he would do.

Whereas most elected officials in Columbia or Washington, D.C. embrace the establishments they previously railed against, Loftis has governed the same way he campaigned – with a principled contempt (and occasional righteous indignation) for the special interests and crony capitalists enriching themselves at the expense of those they are supposed to be “serving.”

The way we see it, there’s a paucity of reasons residents of the Palmetto State should cast their votes in the June 10, 2014 “Republican” and Democratic primary elections – which is probably why most of them won’t cast votes on that date. Sadly, the vast majority of names on both major party ballots are pandering blowhards looking to appeal to the lowest common denominator (which is painfully easy to do in South Carolina).

Curtis Loftis is an exception …

We don’t agree with him all the time on every issue, but he’s one of the few incumbents at any level of government who has resisted the pull of the taxpayer-subsidized establishment and stayed true to the ideals he campaign on.

For that, he deserves our votes … and yours.

Figured it was about time for another Loftis or Mace fluff piece by this website.

I don’t know much about Loftis, other then he uses the 529 commercials basically as campaign ads and they are on TV way too much!!!!

I have no problem with having 529 plan ads, but isn’t an elected politician being front and center in all of them basically the equivalent of free campaign ads? Wouldn’t the 529 ad be just as effective if Loftis wasn’t in every one of them? I think so.

Now he’s using the Unclaimed Property Program to promote himself. What a loser. He gets called out on the 529 ads so now he’s using little Girl Scouts to try and make himself look like such a great guy. The little Girl Scouts are such great stewards of their money – they found $13,000 of their money. If they’re such good stewards of their money, how the heck did it end up as unclaimed in the first place? Curt, you are so stupid. Please get someone else to write your material from now own.

GrandTango May 31, 2014 at 2:20 pm

PLEASE FITS, don’t endorse Loftis. It hurts his reputation having a democrat supporting him, more than it helps.

Perhaps you support so many losers, you know Loftis has no chance to lose, or a democrat challenger, so you’re trying to keep from going 0-fer…Same reason you feigned support for DeMint, though you two were political opposites.

Loftis does not need you sucking at his waist. Why don’t you keep pumping and humping Sheheen and Ervin???…They need you…(or at least Haley needs you on their side)….to boost her numbers…

The secret behind Loftis’s success is two fold. 1. He truly does not care what the political insiders say about him. And 2. he is not afraid of losing office.

He told me once, and yes, we are friends, that the day an elected officials starts worrying about the next election is the day he ought to leave office.

Good luck Curt, and have a productive second term.

The politics of personal destruction (character assassination to those of you not in the non-political world) is what is done when the opposition has no chance or winning, or the candidate is, or his backers are, evil bastards. Loftis has the unfortunate position having of both of those dynamics at play. It is a malicious game that does not produce winners, but losers. It is sad that it still goes on.

These smear tactics are simply disgusting. I don’t care if they are talking about Obama or Bush, or any politician, this type of gutter language is appalling. The Adams for Treasurer/Investment Commission people ought to be ashamed of themselves. Brian Adams has a family, I suppose he authorized this gutter talk because he knew Loftis would not slime him. He is correct, in that it appears Loftis is running a positive campaign. But what kind of man must Adams be to do this to another?

Wait for it.... June 2, 2014 at 3:58 am

The Only reason Loftis is not using smear tactics is because he is unable to find anything negative regarding his opponent. Otherwise, we would see a different campaign. You can fool some of the people some of the time…and in his case, he fools a lot of people. But the truth will shine through and those he has fooled will see him for what he really is.

To those of you not in the non-political world , character assassination is Curtis Loftis. He has a lot of experience with character assassination. A link to1/1/04 . ” The Saluda Charitable trust, which Mr. Loftis is the Chairman, claims that every single dollar raised goes directly to the needy and that the trust receives no salaries, bills for NO EXPENSES and even their travel expenses.. This man must be a veritable Saint. Next he will claim to be Mother Theresa. People can write The Charity commissioner in SC, or get a petition and write the State calling for an investigation into the Saluda Charitable foundation, including a list of all tax breaks against all donations made, including the beat up- Mercedes..The guys in Serbia have a full list of all the tax break receipts collected by Loftis. Does the First Baptist Church in West Columbia know about his claims of charity work in Bolivia? Does Pastor Lonnie H Shull agree and does the Elevator Fund agree? Loftis need to come clean. He should revisit his own slogan http://www.homepest.com. The no pest promise and go away:
The date was 1/1/04. The date today is 2014. Curtis was a crook then and is a crook now. Mother Theresa ,he is not. You ,Sir, Curtis Loftis , C. Melvin Loftis are no Mother Theresa!

In 1/20/04 a post from Serbia:Orthodox Church: This get stranger and stranger, this guy Loftis started an attack on Princess Linda on Christmas Eve (what a sad life, doesn’t the guy have anything better to do on that day). He accuses her of embezzlement but offers NO PROOF. He says the whole file will be published but it NEVER IS. He says the Crown Prince is implicated, which he obviously IS NOT . And it turns out the whole thing is over a beat up second hand car! It seems obvious that this guy Curtis Loftis is wired and mentally unstable. Oh yeh, the other funny thing, the guy pompously posts that this will be his last posting then replies to every posting after that. Mr Loftis go away you are a PARIAH. Just as a point of fact Slander and liable are criminal matters not civil , so try the courts in Serbia.
The date is 2004 and Curt does the same thing in 2014, no proof, no publications ,no nothing. Just accusations. Go away Curt. Sick then , sick now.

I understand what you are saying about the Republican PARTY, man. That said, Loftis is head and shoulders above “Republicans” such as Greg Ryberg or Haley. Just as there are some good Democrats out there, so are there some good Republicans, if you can find them.

I don’t care who it is, I’ll vote for him, just to vote against Curtis. The man is certifiably nuts. He has wasted so much taxpayer money and so much time of 5 separate entities, legislators, state workers, etc., on this wild goose chase of his, only to be proven WRONG on each account. For people to still believe his hype and vote for him shows their stupidity. He may end up winning the primary in the long run because the other guy’s name hasn’t been out there very long. But if Curtis should win, he won’t hold office long. There’s rumors of ethical and legal violations pending against him as well as slander charges. Word on the street is that he will probably be doing time in the pen. Will his handful of fans be loyal enough to visit him then? Doubtful.

Says a lot about you. Obviously you have not been following the news over the past few years to see his frivolous allegations be proven wrong time and time agan: FIVE times to be exact. Nor have you witnessed his storming out of professional meetings, acting like a little child throwing temper tantrums, nor have you witnessed his dropping the “F” word or ranting and cursing God’s name. Oh that’s right, because if you only read his multiple facebook pages, he’s posting Bible verses and pictures of churches that he has found on the Internet. The man mistreats his staff, stirs up trouble and creates problems everywhere he goes. Wait til hes out of office, whether its this year or four more. Then you will hear what his staff truly thinks of him. They can’t speak now because they’ve been warned but the ones he ran off have no problem telling it like it is. They are working at various other agencies now and they don’t have any compliments for your guy. Do a search for his name on thestate.com and wistv.com and take a minute (hour) or two to read the reports.

Unsupported dismissals are usually on the “ridiculous and false” side of the equation.

David C June 2, 2014 at 12:12 am

JaxCrax AKA Loftis once stated, “I do know that you can go to page 81 of the SCRS FY2012 CAFR and take the indexes for exchanged traded issues, that is, the S&P 500 and Barclay’s Aggregate Bond Index, and that since 2008, a 50-50 mix of these two tops RSIC actual performance, which is presented on the same page.”

This previous comment is a wholesale endorsement of a passive 50/50 implementation, if not, then it wouldn’t be used for comparison. So, had they used his wisdom on the matter, the pension would have lost 2.4 billion dollars, a loss that would have set us back many many years.

Now, if I found out that 144 dollars in fees associated with my 28,000 account were being accounted for after the fact, would I hire a lawyer and a private investigator to look into why it was that it happened, and notify the newspapers about my corrupt broker? Certainly not, because its a number I can relate to and comprehend. Curtis located a common practice in the industry, exploited it, and crusaded like an absolute nutcase knowing everyone would freak out at the number. Thank you Curtis, for your ONLY contribution, slightly more accurate reporting. The bottom line is you are no conservative champion crusader, merely an amateur, and I’m sincerely afraid of your incompetence. The 144 million accounting change now shows that there was an additional .o125% in quarterly fees, big whoop. That is nothing compared to the 2.4 billion dollar blunder your fee averse investing would have cause our state.

So, when you vote, those reading this, ask yourself, “Is this man really a champion”. His grand contribution was .0125% in quarterly reporting, the rest was nothing but an absolutely psychotic episode that unduly persecuted good and great men who care for our state. It was all a show, and stemmed from the same emotions that cause you to push your wife down and deliver herpes news to her mother. This will never be over Curtis, never.

David C June 2, 2014 at 12:55 am

I never hold a man’s past against him, but will point to it when it accurately depicts behavior that has recently manifested. When men I greatly respect start getting pushed down in the parking lot of the news, I can certainly point to the incident with your wife as a valuable backdrop. When you took pleasure causing pain and turmoil in the lives of their family members, friends, and communities, I’m for damn sure justified in posting a link demonstrating you are an anti-christ and did something similar to her poor old mother. It’s not a smear campaign, more like a REALITY CHECK. This theme spans your entire life and can be demonstrated to explain why certain things have happened to men trying to keep you from ruining everything that Pension is designed to do. It’s a BATTLESHIP that steam rolled your 50/50 financial vision. May God have mercy on your soul when he separates the wheat from the tares. Turn to Christ sir, not Fitsnews.

How many you been through now, Curt? 3-4? High turnover job, no? What is it you want them to do? All this on the taxpayer’s dime, too. I think we need to weed out the corruption at the State Treasurer’s office and the biggest corruption there is is YOU, Curt.

Why anyone from the tea party movement would blindly follow this man after being wrong time and time and time again is beyond comprehension. He is even being given a pass on his support for handouts. Let me show you how long ago this man started worrying about a potential primary… its called the “May 29th College529 Baby Handout” program, established over two years ago.

Where is my beloved tea party? Its MIA! How are you giving this man a pass on the BNY settlement where he fleeced our state for 180 million by bringing in a personal attorney who stuffed his pockets with 4 millions dollars of our money? COME ON GUYS!!! WAKE UP!!! Why are you overlooking the fact that a negative campaign is exactly what he ran! “I’ll buy my own car” “you aren’t transparent” etc etc. Come on guys, you are smarter and better than this. You may think I’m embellishing with this next statement, but he is a modern day version of Adolf Hitler. People became enamored with Hitler because of his ability to harness and channel their rage. With great promises to restore order and glory, he was cheered right through some of the most telling warning signs, and eventually garnered the love and affection of an entire nation. At this point it was too late to turn back, he brainwashed an entire people group, and carried out some of the most wicked travesties our world has ever known. Though seemingly futile, there were a few good men who conspired at all points to expose his evil deeds in an attempt to reveal his lunacy, to no avail. Brian Adams is one such individual, and endorsed by one of the only true boy scouts in the Senate, Kevin Bryant.

You fell in love with a fictional character, and continue to support an idea known as “Curtis Loftis”. However, it is only that, and idea. thetruecurtisloftis.com is a monster and a hack, among many other horrible things. He is not only a danger to retirees, but everyone in our state. I’m tired of saying I told you so. Vote this 2.4 billion dollar liablity out of office before he does more harm.

Look at the turnover in that office. It’s at an all time high. Rediculous.

Point: I do not believe curtis Loftis would win a straw poll around columbia. As to the bug guy comment, apparently Loftis inherited part of his family’s exterminating business in west columbia. Rumor is that the family ran him out of the business because he got them in so many lawsuits, though he still claims part ownership like a silent partner. Lawsuits can be verified on the lexington and Richland county courthouse websites. It’s a pretty extensive list. Look under the names c. Melvin Loftis, Jr, Curtis Loftis, Jr., and Home Pest Control. I’m really not certain that Loftis has any involvement with home Pest Control, other than drawing a check off of the business. But people still refer to him as the bug guy, bug man, exterminator, whatever. Just repeating what I hear around the grounds. The words lunatic, crazy, narcissist, childish, temper, tantrums, and many more are usually in the conversation when Loftis’ name is mentioned. It’s a shame. We never heard that kind of stuff with prior treasurers, not even through the ravenel episode. Loftis brings more shame to our state than any other have. His parents must be so disappointed in him. I hear his other siblings are very successful. To be such a disgrace must be agonizing. Probably why he’s so angry all the time.

David C June 3, 2014 at 7:54 am

I hear ya. I actually had national tea party leaders phone out state tea party leaders to discuss his failed leadership. I was told by these individuals we have a new establishment in SC, not interested in facts. Evidently they do not care about ideological purity, but only desire to keep their people in power no matter how terrible. It’s been a real eye opener to witness instant cronyism from men with tea party influence. They should feel the crosshairs on their backs, especially if Curtis wins. There will be no escaping flagrant ideological compromises for obvious personal gain. Your “he’s been good for the taxpayer” excuses will not help. There is more to leadership than being good for taxes.

How can he work with honest and caring people? He has lost all trust. He is a lunatic who cannot be trusted. Period.

1. The Adams Campaign and the Investment Commission people are truly desperate. The comments below are indicative of mean, dispirited people with a special interest in this race, who know they are going to lose 80% to 20%.

2. Any sane or normal person reading this thread would think Adams is a horrible person for orchestrating such rabid and negative comments and would never in a million years vote for him or believe anything said on adam’s behalf.

3. Loftis looks like a vilified saint. The over the top rhetoric makes him look innocent of everything! It makes me want to write him a campaign check!

Hardly, curt. YOUR desperation is shining. Always the freaking victim, aren’t you? Same old tactics, I’m the victim, everybody’s out to get me, the mafia men are coming, I need cameras and security, I’m so scared cause I’ve treated people badly and it might come back on me now. You’re nothing but a bully who tried to cower behind a chief of staff that you considered intimidating. Even he quit working for you. It’s amazing that everyone around you is fleeing from your little flock, isn’t it. Yet you somehow refuse to see that YOU are the problem, not everybody else. No public relations person because you bullied four or five of them so much they left. But it’s, “poor pitiful, Curtis, everybody is against him”. Suck it up. Now your insiders are turning on you. That’s right, your own staff is teaming up with your opposition. I doubt Grady ever had that problem, well maybe two of his staff, but you will figure those two out over the next couple of weeks. They’re kissing your behind now, but those tides will turn when you’re no longer in an elected position. Oh, and be careful hiding behind your religion, vilified saint, the Big Guy doesn’t like being mocked. Now there’s one you can’t bully and you sure can hide from. Lastly, if you really think that sane, normal people read this site, you’re loonies than anyone ever thought.

Or are you one of those “friends” who gets big payouts like Loftis’ attorney friend. I couldn’t for the life of me determine why anyone would publicly admit to being friends with such a lying scumbag. Now it’s making sense. Be careful. When you lay down with dogs you get fleas.

I understand this kickback to Scott Malyerck was about 100 grand. I do not know if Converse shared in that kickback money.

Win or lose, changes be a comin’ to the office of curtland.

Once the election is over, the remaining employees on the TERI program are history. But don’t worry, those newly unemployed folks can go stand in line at one of the soup kitchens curtis volunteers at, and be one of his charity cases. It boosts his ego and makes him feel like his sins have been erased.You know, do something evil but then do a good deed and all is well. It doesn’t work that way, Curtis. How do you sleep at night?

Folks should have someone who understands such things explain to him the results of the Funston audit. (Lord knows the Treasurer doesn’t meet the criterion). In every major respect, the audit demonstrates that Loftis’s complaints about the Investment Commission are unfounded. His own press release at the time the audit was released could only “highlight” a couple of relatively minor changes recommended by the audit for which he wanted to take credit. There is a reason the five different entities have reviewed all or parts of Loftis’s allegations against the Commission and found them to be baseless. (So Folks can understand, I’ll say it specifically – it’s because they’re baseless in fact, or are grounded in ignorance of the technical nature of the business).

Yes, I saw some of that Romney material floating around the Wade Hampton Building. Was Curtis campaigning for Romney on SC taxpayers’ dimes? Oh, say it ain’t so! Can’t deny it. Many witnesses to that little fiasco.

No elected officials should be able to have a bumper sticker on his car, even his private car. Loftis uses his his bumper stickers to force his ideas on us. He is like Hitler or Mussolini. If I could get away with it I would take the sticker of his car.

We should report Loftis to the FBI. I mean, if he had a bumper sticker or a pamphlet he should be put in jail!

Mary is curt, too! June 8, 2014 at 10:30 pm

Especially since he was campaigning for Romney on your dime. Hope you like the screwing your getting. Does your pocketbook/wallet feel a little light these days?

Bug man down June 9, 2014 at 8:46 am

Nah. There’s PLENTY of other reasons he needs to be reported to the FBI. But while everything is coming out, maybe someone just happens to have some pictures of all that campaign material going in and out of the Hampton Building. More than just a bumper sticker and a pamphlet. Cell phones are wonderful little devices, you know. Bug man wants to treat state government like a business. It’s not a private business. It’s government.

Mary is Curtis June 10, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Omg Mary – you are curt too!

Eddie June 8, 2014 at 7:57 pm

I get it. You are a teenager. A stunted one at that. That explains the low IQ, inability to think for oneself, needing a liar and a repaid like Reynolds Williams to give you opinions and a reason for living. You should drop Williams and stop being jealous of Loftis. You can do it. Surely you can!

Vote him out! June 8, 2014 at 7:35 am

Me either. I don’t make a habit out of voting for crooked, corrupt hypocrites. Most times you don’t find out until they are already elected. In this case we know what he’s all about due to the past four years. Why would anyone with a brain vote for someone as paranoid and nutty as Curtis Loftis? Does anyone really still believe his allegations after 4 separate agencies and an audit firm (from another state) have proven him wrong? Even if “the good ole boys” system was in play, do you really think the out-of-state guys would go along with it and put their reputations on the line? For what reason? But we do know that Curtis Loftis would put his reputation on the line for a $2 mil payout to a personal friend. Changing the terms of a legal contract without the consultation of his peers at the investment commission only proves that he thinks he is above the law. What other ridiculous decisions will he make on his own if re-elected? And anyone who watches the news has witnessed him storming out of meetings, claiming he wasn’t allowed to speak. When in reality he was told to wait his turn to speak. I have never seen such erratic behavior from a constitutional officer. Curtis Loftis is an embarrassment to our state, and a danger to state employees/retirees’ futures.

Sorry, curt – I’m not sure what the native language of curtland is. But obviously “vote him out!” struck a nerve that you clearly understood. Did somebody’s little superhero feelings get crushed.

Nice try, Melvin. Take a look at Adams’ campaign disclosure. Do you see contributions from members of the investment commission, or any other big contributions? That’s right, theres none there. but you also won’t see over $700,000 debt like you have accumulated. So tell me again who you thnk the smarter guy is? You’re such an immature loser, Mel.

Looks like the General Assembly has some serious questions about the so called great deal personally negotiated with the Bank of New York Mellon, 1 Wall Street, New York, New York. It appears to some observers that while pounding on the table to get a good deal for his personal attorney and close friend, the Treasurer may have violated his fiduciary responsibility to the members of the Retirement System. The following Proviso easily passed the Senate and the House:

105.13. (PEBA: Litigation Review) The Public Employee Benefit Authority shall submit to the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, no later than December 1, 2014, a report on the settlement between the State of South Carolina and the Bank of New York Mellon that provides review and comment upon the benefits of the settlement for the employees and retirees of South Carolina. In conducting the review and preparing the report, the Public Employee Benefit Authority may use appropriated or available funds as necessary to retain independent expert assistance, including legal counsel of its choosing.

The last sentence about retaining expert assistance and legal counsel should be particularly troubling to the Treasurer.

Chris June 10, 2014 at 11:29 am

I have friends all over state government. Here is what I hear.

I hear the Treasurer is pleased at this. It gives him the opportunity it be heard in a format that allows people that lie to be prosecuted and or disbarred. The problem the Treasurer has had in the last that these so called investigation are just conversations. When people are sworn, and lawyers have to attest to truthfulness, all will seem quiet different.

I hear the investment staff, many of which hate Reynolds Williams and were not even here when the real loos occurred, fear that the negligence of the Investment Commission will be shown. The loss of $200 million will be shown to be by the Investment Commission and this will reflect poorly on them.

Reply
Wayne B June 10, 2014 at 1:41 pm

Maybe your friends should read this Proviso more clearly. It focuses on the BONY Mellon settlement and how that settlement benefits members of the retirement trust fund. Treasurer Loftis took full control of that settlement so must now take full responsibility for the results.

David C July 13, 2014 at 9:27 am

Mr. Loftis,

I may have jumped to conclusions concerning your character, and must apologize for taking part in the personal attacks leveraged by the website. I felt justified in doing so, especially after I was paid a visit by some scary looking guys the day before my last post. The truth is I don’t know you and should not have allowed a difference in opinion to trump the “anything nice to say” adage. I hope you will forgive me.
