CANDIDATE GIVEN SHORT SHRIFT AT GOP RALLY …

By FITSNEWS || Embattled S.C. Rep. Stephen Goldfinch wasn’t exactly given top billing at a “Republican” rally outside Nosh Restaurant in Pawleys Island, S.C. this week, multiple witnesses to the event told FITS.  The S.C. House District 108 Representative was allowed to appear on stage at the rally – part of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley‘s end-of-campaign whistle stop tour across the Palmetto State – but he was reportedly told during the event he would not be allowed to speak.

“He looked a little dismayed after the guy tapped him on the shoulder and whispered in his ear,” a witness told FITS. “Haley threw him a very perfunctory one liner about his reelection, then he was gone … poof!”

Goldfinch also failed to make it into any of the social media photos posted to Haley’s official Facebook page following the event.

“You smell that?” one attendee at the event remarked, referring to Goldfinch.  “That’s defeat.”

Hmmmm …

Goldfinch has already received Haley’s endorsement, so we’re not implying she is in any way withdrawing her support.  And Haley’s team did permit Goldfinch to stand onstage alongside her and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – a prospective 2016 presidential contender.

But it’s clear the GOP is looking at this House seat as a likely loss given Goldfinch’s many past problems as well as his failure to be completely honest about those issues.   All these are reasons why we advised voters in the district to choose his opponent next Tuesday.

Haley is a stage hog. She is keeping GOP elected officials at bay, on the back of the stage and quiet, while she gets the limelight.
Of course,if one can do her any good, such as a presidential candidate, then that is different.
She is a terrible leader of the party.

Do we have a video of this? somebody out there should….please post if you do. Haley may even earn a few points back for the treatment after her recent brainless “vouch” for this crook. Wonder what changed her mind to see the light that most of us saw back in November 2013. Waiting for Tim Scott, Tom Rice and Bruce Bannister to redeem themselves with similar actions/words….its important for their future in politics…get the stain off now…my best advice.

Miller sends three out and average four over-sized, glossy mailers a week. He sends out maybe half that number per week. The gist of the mailers are “Stephen Goldfinch is a crook”, and “Vida Miller is a Democrat.” Sure, many people might consider these to be equally damaging statements. But she has a history of being a moderate Dem, leaning conservative, and she is well-liked. He has a history of being a skeevy crook with no discernible ideology and nothing to like about him.

He’s history. Politically, he’s more of a goner than the corpses the other Goldfinches in the area put in the ground regularly.

So true..”goner than the corpses”. But I did notice a “Vote for Stephen Goldfinch” sign in one of the social media photos posted on Haley’s facebook page…so is it the trikki slicky Nikki trick….or is it just plain dumb campaign staff who picked the wrong photo? As for Stephen Goldfinch….he will come up with another scam…another story….

Buz or Bos or what ever you are calling yourself this week. Get back on your meds and think again. Voting for Vida is a vote for a liar. She says one thing when she is home here and votes with the liberals in Columbia and then denies it. She is pure Georgetown. LIAR. LIAR. LIAR

All politicians are liars. Not all are total crooks, though.

Ha ha…right about that. Our Murrell’s inlet crook’s deeds are becoming legendary, steadily drawing nationwide interest. Thanks to FITSnews for letting us all know about Goldfinch back in October 2013. Also, was wondering whatever happened to independents4goldfinch and Jan Vincent (or whoever the fake woman is) when Goldfinch need them the most. Or is it really phoney front made up by the Goldfinch campaign?

A vote for Miller is a vote for Obama and his agenda to destroy America.
Maybe in another political cycle Miller COULD be a viable choice. Not in this one.
VOTE GOLDFINCH!!!!
