LIBERAL JOE McCULLOCH’S “SAY ANYTHING” CAMPAIGN ADVANCES …

By FITSNEWS || S.C. Rep. Kirkman Finlay has issued a “negative campaigning alert” after his opponent in the race for S.C. House District 75 – liberal trial lawyer Joe McCulloch – disseminated an attack mailing that was long on rhetoric but short on sourcing.

In fact McCulloch’s hit piece – in which Finlay was falsely accused of supporting legislation aimed at bringing in additional out-of-state waste – attempted to fool trick into thinking a local newspaper had been quoted on the issue when in fact the quote was provided to the paper by McCulloch himself.

According to an email from Finlay, McCulloch’s ad “distorts my voting record and misleads the public about an important issue.”

Specifically, Finlay said the legislation he supported “did not affect the inflow of out-of-state trash,” but instead allowed providers with more flexibility as to how they administered solid waste disposal.

Finlay also noted that McCulloch’s negative mailing attributed a statement to a local newspaper when in fact the comment was actually a quote McCulloch gave the media outlet.

Here’s the quote …

“I had to reread the article to see that he is quoting himself,” Finlay noted.  “When Joe is in court, I wonder if asks and then answers his own questions?”

Indeed …

Finlay’s email alert also made mention of our exclusive reporting on the theft and vandalization of Finlay’s political signs.  Democrats have denied any association with the as-yet-unidentified vandal, who goes by the name of “Eric.”  They also claim Finlay is making a big deal about the issue because his campaign is in trouble.

“Campaigns complaining about signs being stolen are campaigns that know they are about to lose,” one Democratic operative told FITS.

Not so, a Finlay advisor responded.

“Campaigns that steal signs are campaigns that know they are going to lose,” the advisor told us.

Most of the polling we’ve seen on this race shows Finlay with a double-digit lead.  In fact Finlay managed to defeat McCulloch in 2012 despite voting irregularities that exacerbated wait times in Republican-heavy districts – driving down GOP turnout.

“…attempted to fool trick …”

Is that like a “hat trick” for idiots?

Dissatisfied with the results he got from his family doctor, the balding man sought out alternative treatment for his hair loss. A friend referred him to a scientist who had been testing a chemical that showed great promise. Within a week after taking the recommended dosage, hair began to grow uncontrollably all over his body. The suddenly hirsute fellow returned to see the scientist.

“What the hell did you give me?” he demanded.

“It was DNA from a woolly mammoth.”

“Aha,” the hairy man exclaimed. “That would explain the size of my balls!”

If McCulloch asks questions in court it’s because he doesn’t ask a question when he already has the answer. I like Joe McCullough, he’s a straight shot and almost always tells the truth.

Joe ought to be better than this. Politics brings out the worst in people. Joe, stay in the courtroom, you will be better off. Your honor is more important than partisan politics

Yes, it does, it brings out the hypocrisy of Kirkman being on the federal dole for over $1M but opposing Medicaid expansion

I used an oversized Joe McCulloch post card to scrape some dog shit off of my shoe yesterday afternoon. Could he be as useful in office?

That would be more useful than Kirkman “I’m Bobby Harrell’s buttboy” Finlay has been.

Can I scrape dog shit off of my shoe with that? Sounds more like rhetoric than a thin rigid surface suitable for removing fecal matter.

Speaking of lawyers………”The sweet young thing was visiting her GYN for her annual check-up. When finished the doctor told her everything was fine and did she have any questions. Yes she said. Her new boyfriend was into anal sex and could she get pregnant that way. Certainly, the doctor replied, where do you think lawyers come from?”
