RICHARD ECKSTROM’S “FAMILY VALUES” BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT

By FITSNEWS || Looks like crazy drama runs in the “Republican” family in South Carolina …

S.C. Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom – whose personal life is a well-documented disaster – bailed his 38-year-old son out of jail earlier this month after the younger Eckstrom was accused of roughing up his pregnant ex-fiancee.

Brad Eckstrom allegedly punched, kicked and grabbed his 29-year-old former fiancee Blair Pettrey by the hair, dragging her across his mother’s home during the October 10 incident.  Pettrey – who suffered multiple bruises – was nine weeks pregnant with Brad Eckstrom’s child at the time of the alleged assault, sources familiar with the drama tell FITS.

Previous abuse has been alleged by sources close to Pettrey – although it’s not immediately clear whether charges were filed related to those “four or  five” incidents.

What precipitated the latest incident?  Neither side is talking, but sources familiar with the complaint say the dust-up can be traced back to none other than Kelly Payne – a 2010 “Republican” candidate for S.C. Superintendent of Education who has been Richard Eckstrom’s on-again, off-again lover for the last four years (pre-dating his ex-wife, Peggy Eckstrom, divorcing him in 2011.

In fact the star-crossed affair between Richard Eckstrom and Kelly Payne has produced courtroom dramapolice reports, allegations of sexually transmitted diseases, wedding rings for sale on Craigslist as well as campaign finance abuse charges related to Eckstrom paying for Payne’s travel to the 2012 Republican National Convention.

The drama has had an effect on Eckstrom’s work, too … although in spite of it all he is a lock to win another four-year term as S.C. Comptroller on November 4.

Anyway … our sources say Payne played a starring role in the breakup of Brad Eckstrom and Blair Pettrey’s marriage, which was supposed to have taken place on October 4.  In particular, we’re told Payne was miffed because she was not invited to the wedding – ostensibly at the request of Eckstrom’s son.  When Pettrey attempted to calm the situation by inviting Payne to attend the couple’s rehearsal dinner – Peggy Eckstrom reportedly freaked out and refused to participate in any of the ceremonies.

That’s when the wedding was put on ice …

Brad Eckstrom and his former fiancee were living at his mother’s home in Lexington County at the time of the incident – although they were about to move out, we’re told.  On October 16, Peggy Eckstrom filed a notice to remove Pettrey from the property.

Wow …

Stay tuned.  Obviously we’re just beginning to dig into this story.

EEEckstrom along with the others mentioned here have been horrible role models and set very negative examples for their children.
Can you imagine the mindset and thought processes that go through the heads/minds of the children of these people?
Sanford and Maria
Eckstrom and kelly
Peeler and Donna
Frazier and Cynthia
All adulterers, cheating, lying spouses!
HOW WILL Thomas Ravenel’s daughter grow up? What has been the and will be the example she will have?
Will any of these children ever trust their spouse?
They will continue the cycle set by their parents. We wonder why marriage, trust, are so endangered and threatened?
These people have created disastrous futures for all of their children!

38 years old and living with mama. 38 years old, getting married to a knocked-up 29 year old bride. 38 years old and having a big old ceremony, rehearsal dinner, etc.

Hey dickhead, at 38, spare everybody you know all the hassle and bullshit.

How old is Kelly Payne? 48? and she’s living back home with her mama because her rental house had some water damage!! At 48 the women has been through how many men? Receives child support, spends all her money on botox and designer clothes. But still can’t get wrinkly old foreskin eckstrom to marry her for his money and pension! So glad my child is out of that school, doesn’t have to see her skanky butt with her thong hanging out being sent home to change into decent clothes from school anymore. #noclass

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: in the not too distant past, a woman like Hotpants Kelly Payne would not be allowed to teach and otherwise influence school children because she is such a flagrant example of moral turpitude.
That school district should be ashamed of itself.

Something about the order of those events tells me that they were doing it wrong from the beginning.

You’re too picky. What’s wrong with the order? Screw – start relationship – get pregnant – propose – break up – beat woman?

Jr. seemingly got the “entitlement” gene from dear old dad. Sociopathology can run in families. Of course Eckstrom has not modeled good behavior for his kids either. Who knows what they experienced as young kids?

I miss the significance, is Brad Eckstrom running for something? I’d also bail my son out. We’d have a discussion later but I’d bail him out.
