RICHARD ECKSTROM AND KELLY PAYNE ARE ENGAGED … AGAIN

By FITSNEWS  ||  The toxic, metronomic relationship between S.C. Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom and his fiancee Kelly Payne is back “on.”

According to a tweet from Payne, she and Eckstrom have set December 21 as the (latest) date for their wedding.

Will it stick?

Probably not … “Keckstrom,” as they are collectively known, have been engaged (and un-engaged) several times over the last few years.  Their wedding dates are about as firm as the Jell-O the aging Comptroller will soon be slurping down at the nursing home.

We’re not Las Vegas odds makers, but we put it at less than 20 percent that this wedding comes off as scheduled.  Which is generous, given this couple’s history.

Eckstrom and Payne’s star-crossed affair has produced courtroom battlespolice 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.

It’s also 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.

The news of Eckstrom’s latest engagement comes less than a week after it was revealed that he bailed his 38-year-old son Brad Eckstrom out of jail for alleged criminal domestic violence against 29-year-old Blair Pettrey, the younger Eckstrom’s former fiancee.

Try and keep up with the drama, people …

Here comes the bride.
Her mouth is duck-taped and her hands are tied.
Her gown, designed by Dolly Parton,
Is desert camouflage with a thick black hem.
Her polyethylene petticoats resist fartin’.
Let’s throw some rice at them.

Just imagine the honeymoon!
Five days at Viagara Falls;
Into a Motel Six at noon,
And nowhere to be seen until an auditor calls.
Jes’ rednecks stayin’ at their Ritz again.
Let’s throw some grits at them.

What will Motel Six do with the bed?
After “With this rash, I thee wed!”

Ya know……what Ms Payne needs to do if she is serious about this engagement is to come here to Fitsnews and ask SMIRKS and GT and the Colonel and the mongrel rest if they would be so kind to offer their Iphone camera services to take pictures…!! Make it one huge “social” event and have an Instagram Photoshoot…!!

Talk about Fitsnews mileage across our state……..every hack in every newsroom would die to cover the story…!!!

They should give Z-TAC a 25 year old head shot of him and a 15 year old head shot of her and let him do his Photoshop magic.

Richard, a hairy scrotum of a man, should not be re-elected to office. Instead, he should be installed as the head clerk and peep hole advisor at the Lions Den Video store on 26. He would look marvelous with a tool belt of paper towels, windex and condoms.
