LIBERAL LOBBYIST RAKING IN CASH FROM NON-PROFIT …
By FITSNews || The median household income in South Carolina stood at $44,163 in 2013 – a number we took note of last week. Good jobs are increasingly difficult to find – as evidenced by the fact only 57.9 percent of working age South Carolinians are currently participating in the labor force.
That’s up just one-tenth of a percent from the record low …
Part-time work is increasingly the only employment available, which is bad news … unless you’re liberal lobbyist Ann Timberlake, head of the Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC).
According to the non-profit’s latest disclosure forms, Timberlake was paid $82,000 in 2012 – or 26.5 percent of all the money the CVSC took in that year. Not bad for an employee who worked only 22 hours a week.
FITS ran a post last week on Timberlake’s diminishing influence at the S.C. State House, where lawmakers tell us she has become increasingly irascible (and decreasingly trustworthy) in recent years.
Timberlake’s “advocacy” is hurting the conservation movement, we’re told, as these officials tell FITS they are less inclined to work with the environmental lobby due to her tactics.
Oh well … at least she’s getting paid, right?
