SENATOR CHOSEN FOR COVETED REALTORS’ AWARD

S.C. Sen. Tom Davis will receive the 2014 “Legislator of the Year” Award from the South Carolina Realtors, sources familiar with the forthcoming presentation tell FITS.

The award is a big deal to state lawmakers because the Realtors are one of the largest, most powerful (and most politically active) professional associations in the state.

Davis will receive the award at the organization’s annual conference and expo – scheduled for September 18-19 at the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort and Spa.

Established in 1944, the Realtors boast more than 14,000 members.  The group is among the most influential, organized and effective advocacy organizations in the state – especially in the legislative arena.

Davis, 54, is in the middle of his second term as a State Senator from Beaufort County, S.C.  Prior to that he served as chief of staff to former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford.

AKA the “tallest midget in the circus” award, formerly called the “Gold medal in the Special Olympics” award until polling said that was too unpopular due to those those that felt it was a slam on retarded people.

Tom Davis needs to receive the Biggest Sell Out in the 2014 Legislature Award for voting for Jean Toal. That act showed Tom’s true colors as another self-serving legislator who will do what he can to help himself and not the State of South Carolina.

Getting an award from realtors is like getting an award from terrorists, lobbying terrorists.
This is an unattributed press release from Davis or the lobbyist, right?

How are you missing Rep. Gerry Smith being awarded ALEC Legislator of the Year?

Do us a real favor by employing your legendary political contacts and print a list of all South Carolina legislators who recently fed at the ALEC trough in Dallas last week. You can start with Alan Clemmons and go from there.

He’s actually from New Jersey, not Beaufort, but he’s the type of transplant we need.
