HUGH LEATHERMAN’S POWER OVER SOUTH CAROLINA IS COMPLETE … BUT HOW LONG CAN HE HANG ONTO IT?

Hugh Leatherman – a big spending, infinitely corrupt “former” Democrat from Florence, S.C. – has reached the apex of his power over the people of the Palmetto State.  In what his dwindling opponents described as a mafia-style “hit,” the diminutive leader was elected president of the State Senate last week – adding this title to his chairmanship of the chamber’s influential finance committee and his seats on numerous powerful state financial boards.

Leatherman wields unrivaled influence in state government …

In fact even before his ascension to the presidency of the State Senate, he was already viewed as the most powerful man in state government.  By a country mile.

But just how equipped is the 83-year-old to exercise his newfound omnipotence over the Palmetto State?

Most say Leatherman is ready to roll …

In fact State Senators who work with the liberal lawmaker – including his Democratic allies, “Republican” supporters and Tea Party antagonists – all swear he is at the top of his game.

“He’s absolutely all there,” one Senator not inclined to speak favorably of Leatherman told FITS. “He’s not slowing down. He appears in better shape, too, physically.  Even more so than in previous years.”

Other sources aren’t so sure, though … and the coronation of Leatherman as “Palmetto Caesar” has prompted a flurry of discussion regarding his health.

Leatherman is at his sharpest during the mid-to-late morning hours, sources familiar with his daily routine tell FITS, but as each day wears on his mental capacity starts to slip.

“He starts forgetting things later in the day,” one source told us. “He has to be reminded of things.”

Additionally, multiple sources have relayed embarrassing stories about Leatherman losing control of his bodily functions at the S.C. State House.

South Carolina is a state known for the longevity of its political leaders (most notably former U.S. Senators Strom Thurmond and Fritz Hollings).  And the consensus is that Leatherman will seek – and win – reelection to his State Senate seat in 2016.

That would keep him in power through January 2021 – the year he turns 90.

“By Strom Thurmond standards he’s just getting warmed up,” one Pee Dee Republican operative told FITS.

And while there are rumblings of a concerted Tea Party/ “conservative” Republican coalition aimed at taking Leatherman out, any challenger in his Senate district would face a likely insurmountable climb.

Stay tuned to FITS for updates regarding Leatherman’s health – and more importantly details regarding the circle of advisors who would run the state in the event his capacity diminishes further.

How does this work? June 24, 2014 at 10:55 am

Question: How do you get away with labeling someone corrupt and staying out of court.
1) They know that you can prove it if forced to?
2) They have been proven to be corrupt in the past?
3) You have something on them that gives them pause when considering their options?
4) You are winging it and hoping that they don’t get pissed enough to sue you and smother you with legal bills.

Don’t get me wrong, I find it all enlightening and often entertaining. I’m just curious how you continue to get away with it?

Saying a pol is corrupt is a form of general criticism. It is not a specific crime to be “corrupt.” Even in South Carolina, everyone still has the right to criticize public figures, including elected legislators. The burden of proof, should they choose to sue, is on the plaintiff to prove that the defendant did not honestly believe the opinion stated.

Put some meat on the bones June 24, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Sounds about right. I guess the real question to FITS would be then for him to explain in what way Leatherman is corrupt, i.e. some backup.

Cause, right now the news is all about the ongoing “PUBLIC CORRUPTION” trial with Pinson. You are right, they go on to state the crimes that form the basis for the “public corruption” so corruption may in and of itself not be a crime but to state that someone is corrupt the details should back up your argument. Then, of course, this website would be at risk of stating as fact certain crimes that this or any other individual has or may be committing on an ongoing basis. And that, I do believe is where the rubber meets the road.

So, I am ready to hear some details about this so-called corruption and where it extends beyond skillful and artful politics and gets to the level where it affects me the taxpayer. Short of this, what is happening here is no different than calling the SLED tip line and pointing the finger at someone and hoping that they initiate a probe and that that unlikely investigation generates charges.

Well, it’s a shame this is a story that FITS has quite pointedly ignored (just as with most other stories related to David Wren and his investigative reporting in the last two years, for some reason — must be a jealousy thing) but Kelly verdict is being appealed. They will take it all the way to the US Supreme Court, if need be. It was a total travesty of justice that cannot be allowed to stand if journalists and bloggers are ever to be able to do any form of true investigative journalism whatsoever. The Kelley verdict is NOT being cited as case law at this time, preciously because it is an ourtlier and on such shaky ground, legally. Legal Fat Lady has NOT sung on this one. She hasn’t even cleared her throat good.

If you are seriously curious legally speaking, because he is a political/public figure and therefore, the standard for libel/slander is significantly higher – than for say the average private citizen. Also, “corrput” is a somewhat amorphous term, and one person may say corrput means criminal, another may mean because the person turned their back on principles the person never espoused but one political blogger thinks they should stick too anyone (e.g. FITS and leatherman above).

In my opinion Buz was the reason The Sun News eliminated the Sun News Opinion Blog. His battles with local politicians professionals and business owners along the Grand Strand often degenerated into threats of lawsuits and violence on the SNOB while he was promoting his bizzare, conspiratorial theories of crimes and injustice.It apparently scared the shit out of that publication.
Buz commented above that FITS is apparently ‘jealous’ of Wren. I doubt that. Will is apparently just smart enough not to let Martin blow his blog up like Buz did at TSN or get him into some kind of civil litigation with his numerous, false allegations about others.
Just my opinion.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 3:22 pm

Total crap. The Sun News Opinion Blog was eliminated because of the insane proliferation of sock-puppet IDs. Those IDs, including several connected to “Pawleys Island Tom Davis” a.k.a. Thomas G. Davis, voting machine pioneer and (to hear him tell it) bosom buddy and biz partner to just about every corrupt poltician and “business leader” in MB. Davis himself, AS himself was bad enough. He got himself banned by TSN for threatened violence (including shooting one guy in the face) against me and others, and also for posting personal information about several others. He pretended to be female in at least one of those sockpuppet IDs, btw.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 3:25 pm

We were both banned for a while. But were un-banned when the switch was made to Facebook commenting. Since that time, Davis has gotten back into his menacing and threatening mode a few times, and has had several of his posts deleted. The sock-puppet IDs have been easier to detect on Facebook, and have been eliminated one by one.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 3:25 pm

Emily Peterkin lives in Fort Motte SC, near Charleston. She most often pretends to be male and has a blog called SC Digest (under the screen name T. Lawrence), which mainly supports corrupt mainstream GOP pols and their policies — but pretends to be a “true conservative Republican.” And GET THIS: Peterkin also posts as “Big T” a.k.a. “Grand Tango”, as well as other fake ID names on FITSNews. In that markedly crazier guise, she has increasingly sought in recent months to link me far more closely in different ways to Sic Willie than is warranted by reality. Interesting to see who her running dogs are in Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island — the supposed good buddies and ardent defenders of the “Myrtle Beach Mafia.”

TD and KaCee and whoever the hell “pogo” was can’t spam the comments (or the SNOB when they start it back) with all their insane fake personas who post hate-filled lies and slander.

I was a frequent read of the SNOB. Infrequent contributor. I do recall a Tom Davis threatening to sue you for defamation and you begging him not to do such as you apparently live with your mother and she owns the house. I do recall a successful business man in Murrels Inlet threatening to sue you for defamation and an allegation of you walking out on a tab/bill at his establishment.l recall a business owner in Pawley’s Island threatening to sue you for defamation and you begging him not to sue you.
Quite a pattern.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 5:12 pm

So who the hell are you really, troll? None of that is accurate. And you know damn well who Davis is, and that I never begged him for shit. Also, you know that he went on INCESSANTLY with insane lies and treats aimed at me and my family, for long periods of time over several years. The defamation threat from the businessman in question was never acted on, because he tripped up and inadvertently revealed on The SNOB a detail about the allegation that he could only know if he were in fact guilty of same. He backed off me, I backed off him, I backed off him and do not mention his name now. If he now wants to start the same shit back up again, he will find he has a hard row to hoe in proving that THE REAL VERSION of what I had passed on to his ignorant trouble-making hillbilly buddy “Thumper” was untrue and that I had any way at all of KNOWING that it was untrue when I had foolishly shared it.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 5:19 pm

Regarding the bogus bar tab bullshit — this happened one time, and was accidental and circumstantial. It was raining like crazy and I caught the first ride home, forgetting I hadn’t paid. I attempted to pay him back for having covered it (this “Summit” was NOT at his joint, but next door) , but was told “no problem, it’s on me.” It was around 12 bucks, if I recall. He later expanded that into me having skipped out on virtually every tab at our monthly “SNOB Summit” social gatherings at HIS bar, which was a total lie. I never left without paying a single one, and I always tipped over 10%. He also neglected to mention that when I attended those events, I always did the required thing of donating a bag or two of can goods to the local food bank — and that on several occasions when I DID NOT attend I either took my donation by the venue before or after — or had a friend to deliver it for me. All of this speaks to the honesty and integrity of these people. They have none. And you know that full well, because you are one of them.

joe June 24, 2014 at 8:55 pm

Tell the truth Boz. When we met in Murrels Inlet for the “greet and meet” with Gloria Tinabu that I arranged a couple of years ago , you may have left a bag of canned goods on the table after apparently eating all of the food we ordered , HOWEVER that didn’t help pay the food or bar tab!

Ask his buddy Kaycee about all the warrants that have been issued for him, for assault, when he was out of his mind is bars and assaulted people.

Buz Martin June 24, 2014 at 9:06 pm

Davis started attacking me before I’d ever posted on The SNOB. It started on Sun News article comment threads. He did not threaten to shoot me on that one, but he did threaten another guy, and threatened people other ways. That was where he posted the phone numbers of my daughter, grandkids and elderly disabled mother. He threatened and menaced one woman I know so much that she bought a gun, learned to shoot, and got her concealed carry permit. One of the contractors on his main project when he was working with Doc Lachicotte told me that he BEGGED Doc to somehow get him off of it because he was pissing everybody off so bad it was hard to keep people from walking off the job. He’s been banned now for at least a dozen bars in PI, MI and Garden City. The Marlin is the only one that will have him. No, it’s not about the fact that we “disagree.” You are defending an absolutely indefensible, detestable, reprehensible hateful-ass son of bitch and parroting his goddamned lies about me here on FITSNews.

Batshit crazy doesn’t distinguish attractive from unattractive. Look at her eyes, do they say “crazy”? Does she own cats or horses, those are usually good signs.

If it is a link to an actual post on his blog and it’s on topic, fair enough, but generic links to the front page of his blog in each and every comments section with zero context constitutes spam in my book.

Downvote, flag comment, collapse.

Will needs to start charging you for every post containing a link to your blog. From what I can tell, if anyone does go there it’s due to your link on his blog so basically the people who advertise on here are ultimately paying to draw people to your site.

I have to laugh. I imagine I should feel like FITS feels when I thrash his @$$. But the difference is: I’m very specific in my analysis of FITS, which is actually of value. And It’s his dishonesty that P!$$#$ me off, mostly.

Squishy: forgive me for saying this, but you’re just an Ignorant Dumb@$$. You Hate, but you have absolutely no ability (or you’re too lazy to put forth the effort) to express a reason for your contempt.

Same w/ Smirks, except I think reality articulated honestly, and well, scares the $#!* out of Brain-Numb, Kool-Aid liberals like him.

I’ll listen you your complaint, if you can manage an original thought and some substance. Otherwise you’re a simpleton joke.

Are you still waiting for your first response to your little blog? It seems a little disheartening to put that much effort into something and then have it ignored.

Why aren’t you working on your blog? You seem to spend more time here than over there. Why is that? Is it because it’s like going to a party and standing in a room all by yourself?

Lots of naysayers here. Leatherman is far from perfect but I, for one, am glad he is there. He seems a moderating influence on some of the wilder schemes that pop up from some of the ideological extremists on both sides. He has a sense of priorities that are close to that of most S. Carolinians. He has a statesman’s view of the state as a whole and not just the single member district he is from as many do. He is open to change and trying new things. I have worked with him on some retiree issues and have found a sincere desire to do the right thing–not always what I wanted but certainly what he thought was in the best interests of the state and its employees, retirees and people at large. Keep on keeping on, Senator. Fits is meaningless in the long run.

So you say you have work with him on retiree issues? Really…!?

Well, the next time you see him, kindly whisper in his ear that he is like a Pharaoh who had slaves to fossil OIL instead of a LOCAL choice at the fuel pump and see what his reaction is. Instead of a statesman, he will act like a plantation owner. Ask him how much blood he has on his hands from our boys getting killed for Fossil OIL..!? He knows full well how BOEING is sitting on Algae Bio-Diesel technology and yet he failed to negotiate the production of the fuel while passing on 900 Million of taxpayer subsidies without a VOTE…!?

So, how long have you been working in Leatherman’s office? I assume you’re on his payroll, or maybe you just get kickbacks from his operations.

Reply
M326 June 24, 2014 at 4:51 pm

Do you really find it impossible to support a politician without assuming the supporter is corrupt? I support Leatherman on most issues because I agree with his opinion or approach. I don’t have to be getting kickbacks or be on his payroll for that. Are there no politicians you support because you agree with their stances on most issues? Do you get kickbacks for that? You are just a little too cynical. Obviously a majority of people in his district support him. Are they on the take? The logical extension of your logic challenges the morality of the majority of the citizenry that vote for him. Nobody takes that seriously. Or you.

Yes, when the politician you’re supporting is as corrupt as they come. I tend not to “support” politicians, as most if not all are in it for one thing, themselves. They can talk all the bullshit they want, in the end it’s all about me.

Leatherman needs to hang it up and find himself a day nurse to shake and wipe for him since the old bastard appears to be incapable of his own personal hygiene.

If anyone wants to see the pomp and ceremony in Foghorn Leghorn country, here is a hearing that was held today… you won’t believe what it’s about… or who’s involved. Irony abounds.

The supreme court of SC is actually hearing a case that tests whether or not a grand jury can be convened to determine whether an indictment can be brought against the speaker of the SC House (R) by a Grand Jury in the case of public corruption if a judge rules against the convening of the grand jury. The Attorney General claims that the judge has no authority until the indictment has been brought – if it is.

Blows my fucking mind.

Everyone in this show is corrupt. AG, the son of Joe Wilson, Speaker Bobby Harrell, and Justice Joan Toal. The power struggle here is enormous. The federal government should step in and decide for the people.

Harrell has misappropriated campaign funds to enrich himself, and got a judge to shield him from prosecution by not even letting the Grand Jury convene at the request of the Attorney General,

The argument by the corrupt system is that a judge has the power to defeat the investigation of a complaint of abuse of power by fiat. The son of Joe Wilson (YOU LIE!) is in the unenviable position of looking like a fucking moron if he can’t claim jurisdiction to convene a Grand Jury to determine whether a criminal indictment can be brought.

“Is the Godfather slipping?” What an astounding question! Hugh Leatherman pulls off one of the biggest coups in recent SC memory creating for himself one of the most powerful positions that has ever existed in SC state government and you ask if he is “slipping?” Sounds to me he is at the top of his game. Who else do you know that could have pulled this off? Your hero Tom Davis? Not a chance. This is one smart civil engineer! The key will be in how he uses that power. I, for one, do not fear to see.

Remember Sonny Corleone in The Godfather? How he met his end? Stopping to pay at the somewhat isolated toll booth. Toll taker slowly lowered himself onto the ground and … bang, bang, bang, Sonny was full of lead.

Imagine how much better our state would be without the Godfather.
