“Mayorhood” Hand-Picked White Stripper For Orlando Fun

“MENU OF FLESH” PROVIDED TO COLUMBIA MAYOR STEVE BENJAMIN …

Columbia, S.C. “mayorhood” Steve Benjamin hand-picked a white exotic dancer from a “menu of flesh” provided to him during his secret December 2010 trip to an Orlando, Florida strip club.

And yes … he reportedly partook of everything  on her menu in a late night hotel sex romp.

Not only that, sources familiar with Benjamin’s wild evening/ morning of debauchery in Florida tell FITS the strippers who allegedly serviced him (and disgraced S.C. State University board chairman Jonathan Pinson) were “part of the entertainment package” provided by developer Richard Zahn.

Zahn – who along with Pinson was indicted for his role in a bribery scheme at S.C. State University – has testified in open court that he paid $8,000 to provide a night of entertainment for Benjamin, Pinson and two other men.

Did that figure include the “white girls,” though?

Hmmmm …

Benjamin and Pinson are the central figures in a busted development scam that received nearly $8 million in federal “stimulus” funds.  That boondoggle – which went belly-up last year – is reportedly linked to another, more powerful politician.

“And they’re all going down,” one source familiar with the investigation told FITS.

Wow …

Benjamin is married to S.C. circuit court judge DeAndre Benjamin.  The couple have two young children.

Obviously, we don’t judge him for stepping out (and we’ve long supported the decriminalization of prostitution), but what we’re dealing with here is a corrupt politician accepting undisclosed gifts from a developer who has since been indicted for attempting to bribe public officials.

According to federal investigators, Zahn offered Pinson a $110,000 Porsche Cayenne in exchange for his support of taxpayers shelling out $3 million on Zahn’s “Sportsman’s Retreat.”  Two other S.C. State officials were also indicted for their roles in the scandal – including one who testified that he was instructed to lie about Benjamin’s whereabouts during the Orlando getaway.

Guess we now know why …

There is no way this ends well for Benjamin. In fact it’s becoming pretty clear there was some truth to those reports published last December about him being the original target of this federal probe.

Do ya’ll see this on The State–mind you there has been no defense presentation, wtf is this:

COLUMBIA, SC — The judge in the ongoing federal public corruption trial is considering throwing out part of the case against Greenville businessman Jonathan Pinson.

Pinson’s status is central to the prosecution’s case, which alleges public corruption by Pinson. Prosecutors argued that as chairman of the S.C. State University board of trustees, Pinson is a public official because he was appointed to the board by the S.C. Legislature.

Pinson and Eric Robinson, also a Greeneville businessman, did not take the stand in
their own defense, and no witnesses were called for the defense.

The jury has been sent home for the day. Closing arguments are scheduled for tomorrow.
Attorney Jim Griffin asked federal Judge David Norton on Thursday morning for a
directed verdict of not guilty, arguing the government did not make its
case.

means nothing. the judge has to consider motions. and the defense is supposed to ask that the whole case be tossed. more important is that there was no defense presented at all. i would bet heavily on a conviction at this point. and pinson will be under pressure to flip on the mayor.

Jim, his attorney argued that the judge should dismiss the charges because he was not a public official (?!?). The judge smacked that down about four hours later.

If he knocks up one of the strippers, supplies “shares” cocaine with her and pulls off a few development deals, oh and lets not forget to make sure he garners a conviction – then by FITS logic he would be a great candidate to replace Lindsay Graham.

The difference it may make might be found in something a black friend told me some years ago. He liked white women but did not want it out that he had been with white women. He told me that if a black woman knew a black man had been with white women, oftentimes she would not want anything to do with him. It’s the same as a lot of white men don’t want to be with some nasty white hoe who has been with black men.

In other words, this might be a double bitch slap in Deandrea’s face.
