Thomas Ravenel? Or The NSA?

ALLEGED “PHONE TAP” LATEST DRAMA TO BEFALL U.S. SENATE CANDIDATE …

By FITSNEWS || One of the reasons this website was so supportive (initially) of Lowcountry businessman Thomas Ravenel‘s U.S. Senate candidacy was his strident opposition to America’s domestic spying program.

You know … the multi-billion dollar National Security Agency (NSA) initiative championed by his opponent, liberal anti-liberty U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“I care about two things,” Ravenel boasts on his website.  “Your liberty and your prosperity.”

Same here.  In fact those are the two guiding principles of this website – the yardsticks by which we measure the worth of any candidate for elected office.

Of course what’s good for the gander may not be good for this particular goose …

“I think Thomas may have access to my phone,” Ravenel’s 23-year-old ex-girlfriend and reality television co-star Kathryn Dennis wrote in a text message to a friend late Monday.

Accompanying the message was a screen capture indicating that “Thomas Ravenel’s iPhone is now using (Dennis’ number)” for instant messaging.  Another screen capture indicated Ravenel’s cell phone number was attempting to access Dennis’ personal email address for instant messaging.

Take a look …

Wow …

Sources close to the Ravenel campaign tell FITS the candidate had nothing to do with efforts to monitor Dennis’ messages – blaming the situation on a campaign staffer with access to the candidate’s phone.

Ravenel and Dennis’ breakup – announced by the former on his Facebook page (via a since-removed entry) – made mainstream media news this week.  Of course the circumstances of the split remain up for debate.

According to Ravenel, Dennis did not come to his defense quickly enough in the aftermath of a recent assault allegation made against Ravenel by Dennis’ hairdresser, Lauren Moser.

In that October 17 incident, Ravenel was accused of repeatedly slamming a door into Moser and knocking her down several steps.  A police incident report also alleges Ravenel fell into the pool while carrying his daughter in his arms that same evening.

Dennis stood by her man but according to Ravenel she didn’t do so fast enough … hence “his” decision to break off the relationship.

Of course less than 24 hours after “dumping” her in public, Ravenel seems to have rethought his decision …

ravenel come home

Awwww …

Maybe there’s hope yet for a fairy tale ending!

As for this website, we cut ties with Ravenel over a month ago when it became clear his candidacy was more about reality television ratings, not real world political issues.

(For our report on that metamorphosis, CLICK HERE).

It’s sad, really … because Ravenel had the potential to drive some much needed narratives this election cycle.

Ravenel showed flashes of his policy brilliance during a recent radio interview with former S.C. lieutenant governor Ken Ard – reminding us of the vast potential he had as a candidate. In fact internal polling from multiple campaigns showed him pulling between 12-15 percent support as recently as August – well within striking distance given a sufficient financial investment down the campaign’s homestretch.

“The numbers were there for him,” one GOP pollster told us recently. “Ravenel could have had (Graham) on the ropes with a credible and well-funded candidacy.”

Hopefully these two get their act together for the sake of their kid.

If they were really smart, they’d drop the political campaigns & TV shows and focus on their kid and their relationship.

T-Rav is a moron if he beat up the stylist. She’s the only person who can make Kathryn Dennis tolerable to look at. When she’s au natural, she is hideous. When she has makeup caked on, 10/10 would fuck her.

For someone that “cut ties with Ravenel over a month ago” You sure run enough stories on him all the way to election day.

I think its all a bunch of manufactured crap, doing anything and everything to keep Ravenel in the news–including everything Fits says / does.

The whole ” there is no bad publicity” thing.

You know, I didn’t think that at first, but you may just be right. It’s too bizarre for any other explanation with the possible exception of the old standby “It’s all about the page views and buying da go-shries!”

OK, OK, we get it. You’re embarrassed that you didn’t see T-Rav’s meltdown coming (when everyone else did). Stop trying to paper over that with recitations of things he said a while back that didn’t suck. He had no chance fro the beginning, no matter what any self-admiration society has to say on it. No way incumbent Graham loses an election where Democrats and Republicans from outside of a few upstate counties would be allowed to vote. Now, get back to the salacious details of his meltdown. That’s the fun stuff.

These two are both mentally unstable attention whores. The difference is Thomas is likely an addict and he is old enough to know better. If she gets away from him and this “lifestyle” she and the baby might have a chance at a healthy life.

Even bad press is good press. Keep getting his name out there. I believe he is STILL on the ballot next week. FITS: ‘Hey, I really don’t support this guy anymore, but he has some great policy that is the best I have ever seen. Too bad I don’t support him anymore’.

Reply
E Norma Scok October 28, 2014 at 4:37 pm

This guy gets it.

Noone “cuts ties” with someone that “threatens his family” but continues to run story after story on him.

T-Rav is doing anything to keep his name in the news, probably with Folks help. Hey..Folks id teh same thing for Haley right before the last election, maybe the scandalous news network can do it again. Maybe both of them think there is a section of folks that will vote for him no matter what he does..even if he’s really not doing anything.

All manufactured crap. My guess is after next week, magically he goes away as do the daily stories on here about him. Its all a little too convenient.

He is using his lady and his lady is using him. They are both needy people, both immature, both drawn to fun and play instead of serious living and thinking. I do not think T-Rav has an original thought of his own. This soap opera of his will continue to devolve into chaos, and he will end up being taken to the cleaners for child support. Think BIG BUCKS. The woman in these situations always wins.
