PROSECUTORS PROBE FORMER SPEAKER’S SPIN MACHINE 

|| By FITSNEWS || We posted an update this week  on the joint-federal state investigation into corruption at the S.C. State House.

The nickel tour?  Reformers are livid at what they perceive to be a lack of progress in the investigation.  Meanwhile sources close to the “probe” tell FITS investigators have been increasingly focused on a group of consultants who worked for the Palmetto Leadership Council – a political action committee (PAC) affiliated with former S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell.

Harrell resigned his office as part of a plea deal with prosecutors last fall – but not before political operatives loyal to him erected several websites with the intention of waging non-stop political warfare against the Speaker’s opponents.

Chief among those opponents?  S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson – who initiated the prosecution against Harrell.

Why would investigators be targeting these operatives now?  There are two theories … one is that these blogs ruthlessly savaged Wilson (and his wife, hospital executive and former television news reporter Jennifer Miskewicz Wilson), and that Wilson is now exacting his revenge against those involved in the attempted character assassination.  The other theory?  That these operatives are intimately aware of illegal activity perpetrated by members of the S.C. General Assembly – and are being targeted by state and federal investigators in an effort to elicit their cooperation moving forward.

Either way … the operatives involved are feeling the squeeze.

The two most prominent of the “Bobby Blogs” – GOPWrite.com and HolyCityPolitics.com – remain visible online but have been effectively shuttered.

GOPWrite.com announced it was shutting down in the aftermath of the November 2014 election, while Holy City Politics hasn’t posted any new original content in more than two months.  During the height of the Harrell scandal, both websites were churning out content on a daily basis.

A third website, Between The Chambers, has scrubbed all of its online content.

Nothing – and I repeat – NOTHING is going to happen to anyone else in the legislature or to their cronies. Everybody who is following along with what the sacks of shit are doing, see they are still doing the same old shit they have always done (just like Bobby Asswipe as done ).
Stop trying to bullshit the citizens of South Carolina. My side hurt from laughing about it.

The Feds now have the people and companies who were writing the checks to Mr Harrell. They also know what the checks were for. There are documents floating around that detail the lengths at which several AUSA’s in Nettles office persisted to keep Mr Nettles from getting the details that would have exposed the criminal activity 2+ years ago. The Feds left enough rope out there for more prosecutors to hang themselves. Documents show a Charleston AUSA’s not only bit on the hook, but swallowed it. Two more senior prosecutors in Columbia probably have big scars from biting on the hooks after they had this information in their hands and pushed it under their rugs. ( Idon’t know how you could walk on that carpet). Well the Feds were watching the whole time. One of the Columbia cover uppers was the 1st. Assistant to Mr Nettles.

So Mr Nettles may not be the bad guy that all these fingers have been pointing to. Theres a possibility that he is actually just finding out.

By the way, same thing seems to have happened in Mr Wilson’s office. Several Assistant/ Deputy AG actively were sweeping hard.

Apparently the Fraud cover up was to protect the Past Chair of the Real Estate Ethics Advisory Panel for the SC Bar, Higgins. How high it goes is yet to be determined but the first complaint was made to the SCSCDC who had everything in her hands then gave it to the Charleston lawyer across the street from the fraudsters to investigate. When the lawyer failed to look into the fraud and submitted a report noting “Nothing here and no further investigation needed”, a harsh reply was sent to SCSCDC. After the Feds got involved and the fraud came to light another document requesting that the SCSCDC reopen the case with the facts included…

After heavy sweeping and and elephant size mound under the rug inside the SCSCDC office, a letter detailing is sent to the SCSC. Each SCSCJ individually with a request to help and notice of the refusal to acknowledge the corruption. The subject of the letter was to make note of the appeal coming.

Well the money started flowing to Harrell and to Judiciary members after each letter to SCSCDC and followed as the lawyer/ Charleston Representative 115 reached out to intercept court documents. Then more $$ began flowing to Harrell & Associates. All from same family and friends that committed the fraud. The new Judge in Charleston County would completely disregard all documents filed on the court. (After money again shows up). False Orders are signed (After money again shows up). Documents are removed from court record (After money again shows up). The case in dropped of the roster (After money again shows up). Then the case is dismissed (After money again shows up).

The case is appealed. Between the dismissal and the time that the case makes its way to the SCCA, the judge has now been nominated and sitting on SCCA.

the case makes its way though the process at the SCCA and when its reviewed, the same court documents that are ignored and conveniently omitted from the lower court with Ol McDonald sitting are now conveniently omitted from the SCCA review of the case. The same day that the case order is signed by the SCCA completely dismissing the case in a one page order, money again shows up in Mr Harrell and friends accounts. However this time its after the indictments.

What do you call donations to a FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE after Indictments????

HUSH MONEY !!!!!!

No, they just really like him..

Well guess who was watching???

HeHeHeHe. You Guess it..

I don’t understand 3/4 of what you’re talking about. But, it was pretty obvious at Thomas Ravenel’s sentencing when the US Attorneys told an almost dumbfounded sentencing judge that Ravenel had ‘cooperated’ when he had not provided them with any actionable information that there were corruption issues at the Charleston US Attorney’s office.

Nettles and Toal have been quietly telling people since last February 2014 that they knew nothing about Harrell buying votes for Toal against Pleicones. It’s a bald faced lie, but hey, they have Eric Holder’s minions approval of their lies, so they believe they are done. Toal sold out Harrell is laughing her ass off about it.

The personal attacks on Wilson and his despotic cunt of a wife are completely justified. Cry babies send their mercenary armies after others because they just can’t handle the truth.

GOPWrite.com was always a shill for RINO candidates. They backed shit like Lindsey Ghramnesty and pseudo-pro-gun Representative Mikey Pitts to the hilt. Opposing viewpoints were heavily censored on that site.
Good riddance to bad rubbish!

This is not good at all! My buddies at gopwrite.com are the best, most eloquent fascists that I’ve ever encountered. In fact, they inspired my website: https://becausefascism.wordpress.com/

I recently wrote about their demise here: https://becausefascism.wordpress.com/2014/12/28/politically-induced-depression/

And I wrote about my fellow fascist, Bobby Harrell being in trouble here: https://becausefascism.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/sc-house-speaker-bobby-harrell-our-fellow-fascist-is-in-trouble/

Dunno, I just don’t think anything’s gonna happen. It’s under the rug and will probably stay there.
Move along, these aren’t the droids you’re looking for.
