Origins Of SC State House Probe Unearth Additional Corruption Allegations

THE DAWN OF A SCANDAL …  

By FITSNEWS  ||  An internal investigation into a corrupt U.S. Attorney is reportedly what led the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) and the S.C. Attorney General’s office to uncover – and begin investigating – a veritable smorgasbord of public corruption at the S.C. State House.

Months ago a federal law enforcement source who fancies himself as a modern day “Deep Throat” (the name given to Watergate informant Mark Felt) approached FITS with the story of this internal USDOJ investigation – which reportedly began several years ago.

According to this “Deep Throat,” the feds stumbled into a web of alleged “pay-to-play” campaign contributions after they followed up on a specific allegation made against this government lawyer – who was based in the agency’s Charleston, S.C. office.

Specifically, these alleged contributions were made to influential lawmakers by a “powerful Charleston business interest” which had a vested interest in a pending court case.

“(It’s) an open and shut case of judicial corruption,” the source told us at the time. “They weren’t even clever about it.”

At that point, the seeds were planted for the larger corruption investigation – the existence of which this website exclusively reported on back in September.

FITS was advised against publishing anything at the time due to the fear our reporting might compromise an ongoing investigation.  However recent revelations – most importantly the go-ahead from a well-placed source within Attorney General Alan Wilson‘s office – have resulted in our decision to share what we know about the origins of “the probe.”

According to our sources, the court case that prompted the internal investigation into this corrupt U.S. Attorney involved powerful and politically connected Lowcountry real estate interests – a “follow-the-money” trail that not only wasn’t followed, but was actively buried in an effort to protect these interests.

“(The case) ran into road blocks behind the court house doors that were so numerous that they got attention of local investigators who presented the case to the (U.S. Attorney) in Charleston,” one source explained.  “When the USA informed the investigator that he had already met with the victims of the fraud on several occasions as well as reviewed the victims complaint and determined it a civil matter, the investigator went back to the victim to ask the victim why he didn’t tell him about the meeting with the USA.”

Well guess what …

“The victim told the investigator he had never met the USA nor ever given him anything,” our source said.

Wow … straight out of a Law and Order episode, right?

At this point, the internal investigation began – which according to our source uncovered “significant false statements” made by the attorney to both the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and a USDOJ deputy director, Norman Wong.

But that’s not all it uncovered …

“Further investigation into the fraud case found conflict up and down the halls of justice in Charleston and Columbia,” the source added.

And that, we’re told, is what started the current investigation … which has already brought down (and secured the ongoing cooperation of) powerful S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell.  The probe is also said to be closing in on other powerful state lawmakers.

And yes … a central thrust of that investigation involves judicial corruption (including specific cases already exposed by this website).

FITS is continuing to dig into the specifics of all this, naturally … so stay tuned for much, much more.

Nothing new here really. Just more proof that legislation and justice is for sale in SC. When one party controls everything it has absolute power and “absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Whether they admit it or not, Republicans are the party of big business. Big business pays to elect them and then pays them for legislation that benefits big business at the expense of SC citizens. Nothing will change in SC so long as Republicans control everything. Arresting a legislator is like killing a cockroach, ten more will be there to replace him or her.

There is no material union presence in SC. By the way, it was Nazis that called unions Marxist. Ronald Reagan was a member of a union. Get a brain that doesn’t just record and repeat Fake News and Glenn Beck.

Ronald Reagan was a member of the Screen Actors Guild, in fact he ultimately was the president of the SAG and engineered a strike in 1960 that dramatically altered the way actors were reimbursed for their efforts. Previously, actors got very little (if any) of the residual income from the movies they had appeared in.

However, to imply that he was “pro unions” in general is to stretch the truth to the point of breaking it – air traffic controllers anyone?

“By outlawing Solidarity, a free trade organization to which an overwhelming majority of Polish workers and farmers belong, they have made it clear that they never had any intention of restoring one of the most elemental human rights—the right to belong to a free trade union. ”
Ronald Reagan

The Colonel December 4, 2014 at 1:12 pm

I didn’t say he thought union members should be rounded up and shot…

And I wonder if you could come up with a reason why supporting “Lech Walesa and company” was a good idea that has absolutely nothing to do with supporting “the human rights of union membership” and everything to do with “sticking it to Ol’Gorbie”.

Bill December 4, 2014 at 1:26 pm

So you are saying Ronald Reagan was an opportunistic liar, who did not mean what he said? What else do you think he lied about?

The Colonel December 4, 2014 at 1:30 pm

Hardly – he continued to support the Solidarity movement and ultimately got Mr. Gorbachev to “…tear down this wall…” (if only through the mistake of an East German news announcer).

All politicians, in order to be successful, are opportunists. (“…you never let a serious crisis go to waste…” R..Emanual)

Tom December 4, 2014 at 1:37 pm

So how in your mind how does calling the right to belong to free trade unions an “elemental human right” get translated “unions are bad but I don’t think we should imprison union members?”

delete the second “how.”

The Colonel December 4, 2014 at 2:44 pm

Join us here in the real world for a minute – Reagan supported “Solidarno??” because it was strategically useful to do so – not from some altruistic belief in “unions” as “the last best hope of man”

Buz Martin December 4, 2014 at 2:35 pm

Reagan often cited the thuggish nature of some of the most powerful unions, as well as the extent of communist involvement in them, as being what ultimately turned him against them — and against leftist politics in general.

The Colonel December 4, 2014 at 2:48 pm

Buz has it right – Reagan was against the “all powerful union” and the political games they played, not against unions in general.

Buz Martin December 4, 2014 at 3:18 pm

His main “union-busting” action that I remember was against the Air Traffic Controllers’ union. On the basis of the fact that they were far too essential to transportation and commerce in the USA to allow them to strike and practice selective bargaining, etc — as well as to allow them to protect the jobs of total incompetents. A defensible position.

The Colonel December 4, 2014 at 3:38 pm

I think most of who are viewed as anti-union are “anti-union” for the very reason you cite: many of them exist to protect incompetency. The UAW is the single biggest reason that American car companies struggle so much (number two is their idiotic corporate mentality)

The second reason I have trouble with them is the blatant political shenanigans they pull ostensibly “in protection of their members” but in reality to just garner more power.

amused December 10, 2014 at 7:52 pm

Interesting. I can’t say I’ll an advocate for unions, but rather more in opposition to management structures that create an environment that allows unions to come in for worker protection. There is more than enough history past and present where corporate greed makes the threat of or actual formation of a union a appropriate counter response. Add far as corruption goes,There is not much worse than or current government. It is rampant. You may want to re-read animal farm. “All animals are equal, except pigs; pigs are more equal. ” BTW; Reagan open the flood gates on narcotics trafficking; shifted shorts to the street level dealer. .. So the tax payer took a beating funding the war on drugs, while the affluent and politicians got very rich. When you see a large content crashed from congress and the Pentagon, such might indicate there is an actual war on drugs. Well at least the subterfuge did simulate the economy.

Native Ink December 4, 2014 at 1:04 pm

I just finished reading a history of Nazi Germany. Hitler rode blue-collar anger on his way to power and initially supported unions and socialist policies. Then when he gained power, some of his early supporters like Ernst Rohm became angry that Hitler seemed to be siding with powerful business interests against the working class. Hitler responded with the Night of the Long Knives. Rohm and all the “socialist” Nazis were murdered along with other politicians who criticized Hitler. Then Hitler staged the Reichstag fire to discredit his biggest remaining enemies, the German Communist Party.

So in the end, Hitler was an extreme version of the typical demagogue politician. He rode populism on his way to power. After he got there, he sided with the powerful establishment against his former supporters.

When one takes in the totality of politics and crime, any party in control or even in non control can be corrupt. Any elected or non elected government official can engage in corruption and criminal conduct. I am not splitting hairs here nor mixing apples and oranges together. I am, however, pointing out that what party a politician is affiliated with really is not something to rationally consider. Corruption and paybacks/pay offs gone on everywhere – and at ever level. In South Carolina, the white collar criminals in politics and land development – unless policed often – always run afoul of the law. Even the SC State Ports Authority (an independent State Agency), the talk on the street – suspected of being engaged within wire fraud and bid rigging – showing favoritism with multi million dollar contracts always to certain contractors who are not necessarily the lowest bidders.

The best time for Charleston politics was right after the real estate crash. Suddenly, a major group of local politicians started to act like they were listening to the people they represented. This brief flowering of democracy ended as soon as developers were back in the area looking to make money. I’ve attended city and county council meetings and watched politicians twist their tongues into knots telling lies and using idiotic talking points to justify unpopular decisions that were supported by developers.

To sum it up, I am not surprised that Charleston is full of corruption. And it will be a huge weight off my shoulders to see at least some of these people pay for their crimes.

Does anyone remember Al Parish? He was a very prominent Charleston-area economist who would roll into council meetings (literally, the guy was a 400-pound P.O.S.) and spiel out these glowing reports about the benefits of whatever land development was under consideration.

Then he was busted for running a Ponzi scheme that took in over $50 million. Now he’s doing 24 years in the federal pen. That’s the kind of justice I’m looking for with the rest of these crooks.

Reply
What I Predict December 4, 2014 at 3:55 pm

I followed the Parrish case. He was a charming and charismatic psychopath (much like how Joe Riley is). I would think that as long as there are no super powerful entities in D.C. that give orders to stand down, I would expect dozens in the Charleston clique to be served by FBI and Federal Marshalls. I would also expect the I-526 extension project to be stopped due to all the indictments; and, that land development to come to a halt on John’s Island as a result.
The entire state of SC has been watching this case closely. Moreso since Harrell has fallen. Most everybody in the state seem to be anticipating hundreds of indictments and arrest warrants. I think that is going to happen. I also think we should see lawyers, judges, politicians, land developers, land investors, real estate agents, builders, etc, charged in this wide spread out of control pay to pay organized crime ring.

Hard to say, and obviously he is playing it close to the vest at this point. Just saying enough to let us know he’s got something, but saving the “scoop” for when it’s crunch time. Makes sense to do it that way. And of course, Daniel having a practice in Charleston would not matter, as it could have been an attorney assigned to the office but not from there. Not THE US Attorney, but one of them in the office.

Would have been a great irony for the US A who brought down the Operation Lost Trust perps to have been dirty, and to have helped a bunch of new cockroaches get their fowl nest going. But that would be too South Carolina even for South Carolina.
