Thomas Ravenel To File Signatures To Run Against Lindsey Graham

INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE MAKES HIS MOVE TO APPEAR ON NOVEMBER BALLOT

Thomas Ravenel … will he or won’t he?

The Lowcountry, S.C. businessman – star of Bravo’s popular Southern Charm  reality television show – has already announced his intention to run against incumbent “Republican” U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham as an independent.

In fact Ravenel’s moves have prompted the Democratic Party to recruit – and nominate – a credible candidate to run against Graham this fall.

But unless Ravenel submits 10,000 signatures to the S.C. Election Commission by the close of business Tuesday, his name won’t appear on the November 4 ballot.

So again … will he?  Or won’t he?

Ravenel was in Washington, D.C. this week meeting with fundraisers, vendors and policy experts sympathetic to his limited government, pro-free market, individual liberty-themed message.  He’s publicly discussed his efforts to gather the required signatures.  Also, video crews were at his Edisto Island plantation earlier this month filming television commercials.

Is it all a ploy though?  An effort to boost ratings for the second season of Southern Charm ?

And if Ravenel really was out gathering signatures to appear on the ballot … did he hit the 10,000 threshold?  And if he did, when will he submit them?

According to our sources, the answer to those last two questions is “yes.”

Ravenel “has the sigs,” one source told FITS.  Not only that, he will reportedly appear at the S.C. Election Commission (SCEC) in Columbia, S.C. on Monday morning to present them.

Stay tuned …

It may be little superfluous for you to use your “sources” for this one too, Will. Thomas will give this info to you in all honesty. And for certainty.

Will was in Washington today with T-Rav. Let’s see if he will confirm it. I think they even stopped by the US Capitol to meet with an office or two. Since T-Rav likes to be so “brutally honest” let’s see if he will man up and tell us who all he met with in our nations Capitol? I heard the reaction to T-Ravs candidacy was bitterly NEGATIVE.

It is still early days for Thomas. I am sure he will run a great and spirited race befitting a man of his means and social standard. I am sure his debates will be polite, but blunt as the British on issues people care. I am looking forward to his race and always wish him the best to climbing his way back to where he sees himself belong. That’s the greatness of this country. People forgive and give a second chance, however ‘bitterly negative’ as it may start out to be.

Social standard?! Uhhhhhh, what?!

Debates?! You think Graham will submit to ANYTHING that even remotely looks like this clown standing on a stage with an incumbent who has $7 million bucks in the war fund? Every political consultant on the east coast would line and slap the shit out of LG (it would be akin to the scene in “Airplane” where everyone is slapping the hysterical woman).

Fun and politics has always a place in this, but respect should always be a starting point, in my view at least.

And hey, he is Gay Friendly – that is a definite step up for South Carolina. I’d have to look at some of his other positions before I would get on board – but could he be any worse than Graham?

Polls of a mere 750 who do not use the internet and read the liberal Post and Courier, and also watch liberal WCSC TV-5 in Charleston. I can easily poll 5000 registered SC voters this weekend, and as a result Graham will come in at 19%,

Anyone who knows Anything about SC politics knows that Hutto,just by being the Democratic Candidate will get about 43-45%.

Hell that fool Alvin Greene got 40% against Jim Demint who was much more popular than Graham in 2010.

Hutto will do better than Greene by several points at least.

2008 Graham___58%____Conley___42%

Ravenel starting to make sense July 11, 2014 at 9:10 pm

I will take Thomas Ravenel any day over Lindsey.

Here’s why:

I would take an honest human any day over a habitual liar.

Ravenel acknowledges he has faults and failures, but his politics are spot on for what is best for this country. He has made many mistakes, owned them, and still has the guts to run.

His platform: smaller government, fiscally conservative, common sense governing, less special interest purchasing of politicians, free market driven economy, and more freedom with less war.

You can hate the guy for his past, but if you hate his politics, you’re just an asshole hellbent on self destruction. THAT, or you are greatly benefitting from the plight of 95% of Americans.

LindSAY, however, is a special interest whore well versed in warmongering, routinely promotes fear and paranoia, who is selling out the middle class, advocating a restriction of all freedoms, fine with spying on Americans, votes for each and every tax increase, loves Amnesty for illegal immigrants, and is very experienced at leading a “double life” (if you know what I’m saying).

Give me a politician who acknowleges his faults but has good policy over the guy with 20+ years of lying about being perfect, special interest whoring, and constant assualt on my freedom and my wallet.

You truly must be sharing some of TR’s high-quality blow. Of course, none of us is perfect, but to characterize TR as someone who exemplifies being an “honest human being” is simply comical. Didn’t he get popped by the FEC for some kind of unethical fundraising or personal spending stuff? The guy snuck around and bought and distributed cocaine (which, I’m pretty sure, is highly illegal) and wasn’t doing it as some kind of exercise in civil disobedience, either. He made the requisite public apology expressing remorse when he got caught (to help with his pre-sentencing report), then recanted that and changed his story to “I’m a big thinking libertarian- coke should be OK.” He catches the DUI in NY, says he’d had two drinks and was absolutely not guilty, then it comes out that he blew a .09 on the field test (well over two drinks), so he quietly slinks back up to NY to plead guilty. He renounces his freaking US citizenship on FaceBook like a petulant teenager during a massive hissy fit about his felon status, but conveniently doesn’t follow through with that, either. Now he wants to serve as a US Senator and swear an oath to the country he renounced not that long ago. I won’t even delve into the dude’s personal life (as totally dysfunctional as it may appear to outsiders) because I don’t know the guy, and people start edging toward the judgmental end of the spectrum there. I think we can make our decisions based solely on the self-importance, narcissism, and outright dishonesty he’s already demonstrated. You make your decision, and I’ll make mine.

When Tea Party stalwarts cry “Take back America!” we must ask from whom, and to what? They seek to take it back to the Gilded Age, and retrieve it from the lower orders: immigrants, minorities the “takers” of the “47 percent,” and their liberal enablers.

South Carolina loves fucked up people in office that’s how we got Haley.

Correct! That’s how we got Ravenel as State treasurer and his drinking buddy and cocaine friend current Treasurer Curtis Loftis! South Carolina likes them corrupt, imbalance and mentally challenged.

Someone remind me again why this guy isn’t in a federal penitentiary? The sentence for federal cocaine distribution charges is mandated as five to forty years. It was 2007, so I guess his five years are up? Oh, he only did ten months? How could forget — he’s a well-to-do and politically connected white guy in South Carolina. They don’t get five years, they get rehab.

Time to repeat this one—–

—————————–

Milo Moroni decided to run for political office, and was told he needed to hire a press agent. So he hired one at $500 per
week. The first week, no press at all. Milo called his agent and said, “What’s happening?” He said, “They’re talking about ya, baby, they’re talking about ya.”

Two more weeks go by, a $1,000 more, and no press. Milo is pretty mad. He called his agent and said, “Hey, what’s happening here?”

He said, “They’re talking about ya, baby, they’re talking about ya.”

Five weeks go by, $2,500 down the drain and not a thing to show for it. Milo was so mortified and angry that he went down to his office, barged right in, and said, “What’s happening? What’ve I got to show for my $2,500?”

He said, “They’re talking about ya, baby, they’re talking about ya.”

Milo said, “Oh, yeah? So what’re they saying?”

He said, “They’re saying, “Whatever happened to Milo Moroni?”

In a nine month period Atlantic City will lose a third of its casinos and a quarter of its casino workforce.
Gambling is not the answer for MB.

Actually this would be the time to strike while the iron is hot. Atlantic City is going down mainly due to competition from casinos in PA, MD, and likely due to rampant crime in the areas of AC outside of the casinos. Myrtle Beach wouldn’t have any near-by competition and our crime issue are minor compared to AC and more easily solved than in NJ.

Myrtle Beach could become the Las Vegas of the east if managed properly. Atlantic City was never managed to be Las Vegas. The casinos bring $$$ and other resorts follow. Las Vegas is the model to follow, not Atlantic City, but ACs failing give Myrtle Beach a market opening.

No organized crime element (aka the Mob), No entrenched gangs in Myrtle Beach proper either. The gang violence they see is spill over from Charleston and/or the Midlands.

It is an industry that is highly vulnerable to competition and economic downturns. It would not not surprise me if unemployment rates are higher in areas that have had casinos for a decade or longer.

You have to have a gimmick or it’s not going to work. Atlantic City is just gambling and not much else. Went their for work a few years ago and everything shuts down at or before 11pm. Very few thing to do if you don’t gamble and I don’t. Our resort/casino had two bars open past 11pm. Las Vegas has the whole see the entire world in Vegas thing going on along with a lot of shows, resorts and amenities. They also are continually redoing The Strip so that helps as well. Myrtle Beach would have to get a gimmick going and keep it up (Redneck Rivera isn’t going to cut it). They have the resorts and other attractions so the people are coming, this will just bring more and a larger revenue stream. Of course if NC had casinos on the coast they would kill Myrtle unless it was very well crafted and executed.

The gambling doesn’t follow organized, organized crime follows gambling and local law enforcement in the dirty Myrtle is already overwhelmed with very simple/run of the mill crimes, so there’s that…

Casinos are closing in Tunica, too.

Tunica like AC is just gambling and absolutely nothing else to do. Casinos will only make money if it’s an all inclusive resort city with attractions other than gambling. Monaco and Las Vegas are who anyone wanting to make a long term run in gaming needs to model after. By the way the Mormon Church is the largest backer of Las Vegas casinos. I’ve always found that odd.

A little off subject but this is how much Harrell spend from his campaign funds to pay for his Legal Fees:

That’s nothing. I understand that his insurance agency is a cash cow limited liability company (flow-through Section K entity) throwing off more than that in a single month. And all those legal costs will be expensed for tax purposes.

I just watched the made for movie story of T-Rav. The names and places were changed but New Jack City and Nino Brown were just on BET. Just remember once a coke dealer always a coke dealer. I guess that would make all the people that would vote for him Pookie.

T-Rav needs to pay his bar bill in Mt. P before he runs for office.
