Chip Limehouse Sued Over Attack Mailing

Published

on

S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse has been sued by his opponent in the race for South Carolina House District 110.

Russell Guerard – who is challenging Limehouse for the GOP nomination – claims the incumbent fabricated information about his voting record in several direct mail pieces sent to voters by a third party organization.

According to Guerard, the pieces “contained intentionally false and misleading information … in an effort to slander, defame, and diminish him and his reputation in the eyes of Republican primary voters.”

Not only that, Guerard is alleging a direct link between the third party organization and Limehouse’s campaign – which would be a violation of state ethics law. In fact his suit specifically accuses Limehouse of accepting “an illegal excessive in-kind contribution by virtue of the development and distribution of this mailer.”

Guerard is represented by Columbia, S.C. attorney Butch Bowers – a longtime advisor to S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.
