HENRY McMASTER TRIUMPHANT IN S.C. LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR’S RACE … “WHITES ONLY” COUNTRY CLUBS REJOICE

“Boy I Say I Say I Say!!!”

Get ready to hear a lot of that sort of talk on the campaign trail …

South Carolina “Republicans” have selected Henry McMaster – a less feathered, less politically correct and far less intellectually curious version of “Foghorn Leghorn” – to be their nominee for lieutenant governor.

The thick-accented (and thicker-skulled) former S.C. Attorney General and SCGOP chairman easily defeated Mike Campbell – son of former S.C. Gov. Carroll Campbell – in the GOP lieutenant gubernatorial runoff this week.

McMaster’s win was widely expected seeing as Campbell finished in third place two weeks ago and only earned a spot in the runoff after Pat McKinney – S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s hand-picked candidate for the post – dropped out of the race.

McMaster will now face centrist Democrat Bakari Sellers – a fourth-term lawmaker from Bamberg, S.C. – in the 2014 general election.

In fact the votes hadn’t been completely counted before Sellers issued a press release challenging McMaster to a series of debates.

“My opponent represents the status quo and is a decades long career politician who has been running for office for close to thirty years,” Sellers said in a statement. “This election is not about what was South Carolina was, nor what South Carolina is, it’s about what South Carolina can be. We have an opportunity to retire the ‘good-ole boy network’ in Columbia. Fresh leadership and fresh ideas is what I will bring to our great state as our next Lt. Governor.”

That could wind up being an interesting race … and not just because Sellers is more fiscally conservative than your typical Democrat.

Sellers also happens to be the son of a former civil rights leader.

McMaster?  Ummm … yeah.  He’s been a member of several “whites only” country clubs and debutante societies in his hometown of Columbia, S.C.

In fact here is a screen shot of McMaster’s name appearing in the 2008 directory of the Forest Lake Country Club – which was featured in a series of exclusive reports we published on these “whites only” groups.  During the course of our investigation, FITS also uncovered McMaster’s membership in another “whites only” social club.

THE SOUTH CAROLINA ATTORNEY GENERAL ALAN WILSON IS AT A LOSS FOR WORDS…..”The attorney general’s office had no comment after Tuesday’s hearing at the South Carolina Supreme Court.”

Speaker Harrell, who came to court with his wife and children, said afterward: “The justices made it clear to us that, from what they’ve seen, the attorney general was simply trying to convict me in the court of public opinion because he can’t seem to get it done in the courtroom.”

It’s soooooo obvious that AG Wilson went down in flames, check the Wilson hair line index, it was a perfect indicator as to Wilson’s defeat, it works every time. If Wilson goes after many more public corruption cases, he won’t have a stitch of hair left on his head.

Of course Harrell was talking and carrying on like he won. He OWNS Jean Toal and she is going to protect his sorry ass no matter what. Poor Alan Wilson’s connection to the state’s second most political powerful person – Toal behind Leatherman – Toal’s senile muse – was Jakie Knotts who ALWAYS voted as Toal told him – but he f’ed up and lost his seat. So he is no good to Toal….. Pathetic situation in South Carolina.

Any publicity is good publicity… especially when it has to do with corruption in South Carolina!

Feds are next June 25, 2014 at 7:27 am

If you watched the testimony Harrell’s own attorney admitted that if they stayed Manning’s order that the AG could open another investigation based on the SLED report. He also could not explain the “where do we go from here?” questions from the court. In other words, this was reduced to a single battle and everyone in the courtroom, including the justices, acknowledged that this is simply an attempt to buy some time.

I watched the entire video twice and what I came away with was that the justices now realize that they have gotten themselves into a corner and the only way out will be to let the AG continue. Manning, on the record, asked for evidence and then refused to allow the AG to present the evidence, then ruled against him.

The SC justices, mainly Toal and the angry brother, interrupted Waters each time he was about to make a valid argument. Their strategy will backfire. #3-2 for the AG.

Take that to the bank SCOOTER (othewise now known as Jr.)

euwe max June 25, 2014 at 12:23 am

Ashley Landess, president of the S.C. Policy Council, which has raised issues with Harrell’s conduct, said that a complaint she gave to Wilson’s office should not matter. Justices implied that her complaint should have been taken to the House Ethics Committee.

“The complaint had about as much relevance to the process as if I had taken a coloring book in there,” she said. The attorney general, she said, should be able to investigate anyone. Harrell has been accused of using his campaign funds for personal use, including funds that paid for office-related trips on his personal airplane. She said she was surprised at the justices’ tone toward the attorney general.

“The speaker of the House is the most powerful elected official in South Carolina,” Landess said. “If anyone owed the public a little more explanation, it was Bobby Harrell.”

South Carolina is one of just two states that elects judges in the Legislature. Most recently, Harrell openly supported Toal over Justice Costa Pleicones for the chief justice position this year. Before Tuesday’s hearing, a good government advocacy group had asked both judges to recuse themselves from the case, which they did not.

That issue and Manning’s decision – which surprised many – rankled the policy council and others. “We do not any longer have confidence in the independence and integrity of our system,” Landess said.

I heard the entire hearing, and it sounded like Jean Toal was hung up on whether Manning had the authority to do what he did, and that ends it, and the Deputy A.G. didn’t do a good job explaining that the issue is not whether Manning has that right, but whether he was right to do it. Particularly in a what was initially supposed to be a SECRET hearing, not just a closed hearing. Also, he did not do an adequate job about the lack of criminal “evidence” presented to Manning. It is in the official record that Manning was offered one example, and waived it off. How can they kick this because Manning had no “evidence,” when Manning burped on the offer? Fix seems to be in, but sounded like two justices might not be in on it.

euwe max June 25, 2014 at 1:54 am

The poor showing by the AG might be a dog and pony show for the cheap seats – but I agree… on the surface, the decision was made before the hearing by Bobby and Toal… and maybe Wilson too.

Just saying when you have so openly screwed lots of women who are clearly not your hot as hell African American fiancé, it’s idiotic to subject your life to the scrutiny of a statewide campaign. Discretion would have been good. But this is a guy who hasn’t even tried to hide the steady stream of girls he’s bedding while in Columbia. If you’ve ever seen his fiancé, you know she’s pretty damn classy and hot —– nothing like the white trash he hooks up with around town. And his fiancé seems way too smart to stick around when all the girls and stories start surfacing. Shitty for him to expose her to what is likely to come out about him during the campaign.

So you’re saying you’re not a racist for saying the black guy shouldn’t be running for office because of the white chicks he’s slept with behind his fiancee’s back, because you think his black fiancee is HOT? Your last name wouldn’t be Thurmond, would it?

I hope Bakari wins. The establishment Republicans such as McMaster are what has ruined this state and allowed such rampant corruption to flourish. As a whole, I am not happy with either party, but 9.5 times out of 10, it will be one or the other of the two who wins a given race. Since the people of SC, in their ever-present zeal to be “positive” by voting “Yes” on anything put before them in a referendum, decided to piss away one means of choice, this will be the last time we will be able to elect a Governor from one party and a Lt Governor from another. The people of SC felt that it was the right thing to do with Nick Theodore two times. I think it may be the right thing to do this time, if Sheheen does not win.

AG Alan “Strange” Wilson
“COLUMBIA – South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Toal describes as “strange” the way in which State Attorney General Alan Wilson handled allegations of ethics violations against House Speaker Bobby Harrell.”

“The press releases, the public statements, the fact that the attorney general has consistently commented about allegations of criminal activity involving Mr. Harrell, has severely prejudiced him. It has severely clouded the atmosphere of all of this case.” …
Waters later attempted to talk to the justices about the press statements but Toal cut him off. …“You don’t need to go there,” she said.

Slartibartfast June 25, 2014 at 1:35 pm

SC isn’t a “Red” state. It’s a royalist oligarchy and has been since 1607. It’s politically no better than a small European dutchy. Don’t get me wrong – I love this state. But one survives here and advances by cultivating and supporting one’s friends. Most of the people who do wrong in this state are merely trying to impress the oligarchs, whom, btw, they don’t. It’s about the power of friends, and the oligarchs remaining “comfortable.”

The only other system which would work is anarchocapitalism. We’re small enough for that to work, here.

Squishy123 June 25, 2014 at 8:40 am

I think John Courson sounds more like Foghorn Leghorn.

McMaster is the “status quo”, what is Sellers? From what I can tell he’s doing nothing more than riding his daddy’s coattails and done nothing while in office except come off as a black Andre Bauer. He wants to get rid of the “good ol’ boy network” and bring in more of the network like what we’re seeing at SCSU and Columbia city hall.
