Controversial Ex-SCGOP Official’s Domestic Dispute Goes Viral

“HONEY BADGER” FREAKS OUT … 

|| By FITSNEWS ||  Todd Kincannon – a former South Carolina “Republican” party official who brands himself as “the honey badger of American politics” – is making national news again.  Only this time it’s for something other than his controversial social media pronouncements …

The prominent Columbia, S.C. attorney – whose deliberately provocative tweets have inflamed America’s liberal intelligentsia – was involved in a domestic incident on Thursday evening with his wife, Ashely Suzanne Griffith.

According to The (Charleston, S.C.) City Paper – which broke the story – Kincannon threatened Griffith and refused to let her out of his car after the two had an argument.

“After leaving (a) work function, (Kincannon) began screaming at Ashely while they drove in their car,” a police report obtained by the paper revealed.  “Ashely told (Kincannon) to let her out of their car to which he refused.  Ashely proceeded to roll down the window and scream for (Kincannon) to let her out, hoping a bystander would call 9-1-1.”

It gets crazier …

“Ashely … called her mother for help and attempted to call 9-1-1 with an open line in order for the dispatcher to hear (Kincannon),” the report continued.  “While driving, (Kincannon) saw a police vehicle and ‘freaked out.’ (He) threatened he would drive the car into a concrete barrier if the cops became involved.  In addition, (Kincannon) also threatened to kill himself if Ashely left.”

Damn …

According to Kincannon, he doesn’t remember anything that happened because his body was “accidentally overdosing” on the drug Benzonatate – which he claims to have taken in an effort to deal with an upper respiratory infection.

“Basically, I went completely crazy after taking it,” he told the City Paper.  “I don’t even remember all of it. My wife called 911 because she was worried about me and my behavior was way out of character and erratic, and she was afraid for her safety and mine.”

ASHELY GRIFFITH
ASHELY GRIFFITH

But was his behavior really “out of character?”

In her statement to police, a visibly “trembling” Griffith said Kincannon “has made several threats in the past to kill himself, her, and her family.”

Griffith also told police “she has past incidents of domestic violence and threats of homicide/suicide recorded.”

Whoa …

Kincannon did not respond when the City Paper quizzed him about those allegations – which obviously call into question his whole “accidental overdose” theory.

Sources close to the relationship – including a close friend of Kincannon’s who participated in his wedding two years ago – tell FITS they are concerned for Griffith’s safety.

“It’s a toxic relationship,” Kincannon’s friend told us, declining to place the finger of blame on his buddy but adding, “she should probably get out now.”

Another Palmetto politico told FITS he was concerned for Griffith’s safety because Kincannon was “crazy” and “heavily armed.”

“(Kincannon is) the type who’d show up somewhere and pull her out by her hair,” the source said.

Of course one of Kincannon’s fellow “Republicans” told FITS he wasn’t “a bad guy, maybe just a little off.”

“She doesn’t have anything to fear from him,” another former SCGOP staffer told FITS.  “He’s harmless.  He’s not going to hurt her – or himself.  All that’s being overblown in liberal rags to hurt his image.”

We’ve always liked Griffith – a sweet, smart, stunningly attractive young woman who works in the health care industry.

Of course we’ve also always liked Kincannon.  He’s a brilliant guy – and we’ve always felt his participation in the marketplace of ideas (however crazy) was a good thing.  He stirs the pot – and his over-the-top rhetoric drives the far left apoplectic.

We can ‘t help but enjoy that part of his persona … to the extent the insanity remains confined to tweets.

Of course we’ve also heard plenty of stories about his erratic nature in real life … including allegations of “controlling” and “threatening” behavior toward Griffith which now have been corroborated by Griffith herself in a police report.

Obviously there’s a lot more to this than just an “accidental overdose” to a drug – which leads us to believe Griffith would be wise to extricate herself from this marriage, and Kincannon would be wise to let her go with a minimum of fuss.

Toxic relationships cannot be fixed … they can only add explosive force to existing combustibility.

Yeah, of course there are abusers on the left, the middle, etc.,as well. That’s a given. But Todd is far right and home-schooled the “conservative Christian” way. So that’s where I went, talking about another nut-job with similar leanings.

No worries. Regardless, I hear you on the home schooling, but I still stick with my point about the spectrum- neither the home schooled far right nor the fringey left have a lock on stupid. Wife beating pussies litter the entire spectrum of human existence.

Buz Martin March 29, 2015 at 6:57 pm

No argument on that.

CharlieChan March 30, 2015 at 9:28 am

I have a friend who went to “church counseling” with her husband because he had hit her. She was told to stop doing things that annoyed him and to focus on making him happy rather than challenging him because he had the responsibility to “provide” for the family and that was stressful for him. A non-religious “liberal” counselor would never give such terrible marital advice. Of course he hit her again, and they are divorced now after he spent some quality time behind bars. We can say “it happens on both sides” but the fact is there is one side that it’s a lot more accepting of abusive assholes than the other. Let’s not kid ourselves.

Mike at the Beach March 30, 2015 at 9:39 am

Sorry, but you’re kidding yourself if you can make the logical leap from the fact that a few right-wing kooky church types provide stupid counseling advice all the way to something akin to “right wingers beat their wives more than other folks.” In my prior life many years ago I snatched these wife beating assholes out of their houses and I can assure you that the sociologists are right (for a change) on this one- it’s psychological, not political. Churches just piss people off and create visceral reactions with stupidity like that you mentioned, but the old “man is the head of the household and can do as he pleases” thing is not the major driver behind male-on-female domestic violence. Asshole men are the primary driver, and that’s been the case for thousands of years. I’ll spare you the lecture I give first-year Sociology students…

CharlieChan March 30, 2015 at 9:59 am

The “right-wing kooky church types” are the ones setting the GOP agenda, not a few crazies no one is listening to.

Mike at the Beach March 30, 2015 at 9:53 pm

I get it, but you and Buz are proving my point that when a home schooled fatass claiming spiritual legitimacy for domineering over his wife makes news, it sets the left (and middle) on freaking fire. Those clowns are, well, clowns, but they are nowhere NEAR the majority of wife beaters. I don’t have research in front of me (I usually do) on the incidence of right-wing home schoolers and CDV (if that research even exists), but in my experience they’re not even over-represented in the sample, much less a majority. I guess it’s the old man-bites-dog thing, which makes sense. However, when you look at prosecutions, shadow reporting, UCR numbers, whatever…CDV cuts across all social strata. Within the middle- to upper income bracket, I’ve thumped just as many liberal jackasses as I have guys like this Kincannon jackass (again, assuming the story occurred as related).

Looking at the NCVS (Nat’l Crime Victimization Survey- much more accurate that the FBI’s UCR numbers, and I do keep this around every year) in regard to Intimate Partner Violence, African American males generally offend at rates three to four times that of white males. Lots of fcators there, but these are not your whitebread, soft-assed, homeschooled right wing types.

What’s happening here is a litany of logical errors…proof by assertion (repeating it over and over doesn’t make it true), cum hoc ergo propter hoc (although the variables here don’t even really correlate), post hoc ergo propter hoc, etc., but the bottom line is that these clowns piss people off. There’s more than a little irony / schadenfreude when one gets popped for smacking the wife around, banging a hooker, etc, but that doesn’t equal correlation or causation.

Buz Martin March 30, 2015 at 7:21 pm

Yeah, but unfortunately, that “Christian” POV you mention is what a lot of guys on the right use to justify the abuse.

Buz Martin March 30, 2015 at 7:19 pm

I don’t kid myself about that. In fact I’ve mentioned it frequently. This is why I admire Taylor. She’s a conservative Christian Republican who doesn’t make excuses for that shit. No matter how much she is shamed by other Repubs. That trumps ALL her hotness, and makes up for some bad opinions on policy, etc.

I guess he stays out of jail by Ashely not pressing charges. Threats about killing her and her family may convince her to let it all go, especially if she’s being snubbed by divorce lawyers. If she pressed charges, he would definitely go to jail, especially if the line about the threats being “recorded” means actual audio recordings and not just journal notes or something.

Kincannon is a time bomb waiting for someone to pull the trigger. He got no Twitter love from me. But….let’s look closely at what is being said. Ashely was able to roll down the window and scream for help, I can believe that. But….she called people?

Every time I have been in confrontation with a man, I did not have time to make a phone call. The ONE time I made it too a phone, the cord was ripped out of the wall. Had it been in my hand, it would have taken a fall.

I got no love for Kincannon, nor his mama, but….sounds suspicious.

Jackie March 29, 2015 at 5:39 pm

Its not suspicious. She had her mother call Todd to distract Todd while she dialed 911. When that failed FOUR TIMES… she actually attempted to jump out of the moving vehicle, but when she opened the door, he accelerated. This is not the first time he has attempted to harm Ashely, and he has a long history of emotional abuse towards her. Voicemail ramblings telling her about what a small brain she has, how stupid she is, how awful of a job her parents did of raising her. He actually bragged about his “cough syrup” defense, stating how brilliant it was. Todd is a narcissistic abusive piece of sh*t who doesnt deserve a companion, especially as someone as wonderful and sweet as Ashely. And for the record, three different divorce attorneys- refused to take this case on behalf of Ashely-stating they either are friends with Todd-or dont want to get involved in a case with someone as nasty as he is. The mental checkup he was taken to and received that evening…In and out within an hour because Todd threatened to sue everyone. South Carolina needs a wake up call in reference to Domestic Abuse. Either that or every battered ( whether physical or emotional) woman needs to move the hell out of South Carolina.

The Republicans in SC are not the Republicans I thought. They don’t mind expanding programs or even creating new laws, if it promotes their social conservative agenda. I am more of a social moderate bordering liberal.

Most of the legislation I see created is pats on the back. Every session nears a close and bills die, but they always have time for those feel good bills. I never see any of those die.

When someone uses “traditional conservative values” as a tool for imprisonment and emotional abuse, then it’s about the party as well.

And the only way that happens is “at fault” SC does not have a “no fault” in the sense FL does.

In this case, they aren’t even “legally” married, just common law. No marriage license or anything. Check the courthouse records. The whole thing was a sham from the beginning with Todd using his money and arrogance to convince a 22 year old to be his “trophy wife” for show and then deciding he owned her. I feel very sorry for her. She made a terrible decision when she was so young and now she’s in this toxic relationship. All of this coming out publicly is a good thing for her. At least some decent lawyer might take her case now. The post that said she has been trying to get out but couldn’t get representation because everyone is afraid of Todd is dead on. This girl is 100% the victim here. Someone please step up and help her out. If I was a divorce attorney, I would take the case pro bono.

Who the hell wants to spend an year getting a divorce, particularly when an abusive situation. Even if abuse if proven, divorce difficult.

Would the new CDV bill help make Mr. Kincannon less crazy?

Fitsnews, you clearly do not know Todd if you think he is brilliant…at least not legally. He is the dumbest legal fuck ever.

I am torn between feeling sorry for her or not. She knew he was crazy as fuck when she married him, but domestic abuse doesn’t excuse that. She is the plaintiff in half his lawsuits he files where he threatens people to get his way or try to get the debts he owes dropped.

Yeah, can you find anyone who’s ever dealt with him in a professional capacity who would use “Brilliant”? He’s not brilliant. He’s got some energy and charisma. He’s a third-rate attorney on his BEST day.

Todd, you should be ashamed. I know you aren’t – that isn’t in your nature to think of someone else. It’s no longer funny. You are making an ass of yourself.

We should be as understanding and civil to him as he was to others. Get in line fellas we’re going to roast his ass on this.

If only that were true. The truth is, he’s connected and his name was on Nikki Haley’s campaign bus. He won’t get roasted, this is SC. His cronies are already circling the wagons to destroy this poor girl’s life if she leaves him. It’s pathetic the way this state lets the entitled assholes get away with anything.

It sure has become less and less believable his “joke” about how he was proud of Ray Rice for “justifiably” beating his wife’s ass was actually a joke.

This manlet is a full-spectrum pussy. And anyone who defends him is a pussy, too.

Can’t find one ounce of compassion for this assclown. He’s bad for the

Does she go by Griffith or Kincannon?

Reply
CharlieChan March 30, 2015 at 2:08 pm

I guess it depends on if she’s being a trophy wife or herself. Her official name is apparently still Griffith, since the police report wouldn’t use a maiden name like that. The police report is proof that Griffith is the last name on her license, and it doesn’t take 2 years into the marriage to get that changed. It’s funny that Mr. “Traditional Values” asshole’s wife kept her own name. I wonder how much of this marriage was an “agreement” about how they would be perceived by the public. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have separate rooms and they are just partners in the corporate image that is Todd. I mean, who would willfully sleep with this troll?

According to his Twitter comment and others I have read on this site, they aren’t married. I initially thought so too.

Know what’s most disturbing about that Charleston City Paper report? Kincannon has responded as if HE was the victim of this event: “My wife called 911 because she was worried about me,” “my behavior was way out of character,” “My blood pressure on scene was something like 190 over 130 and I was tachycardic,” “I was diagnosed,” “I’m totally fine now and not taking any more Benzonatate.”

Not a single word about being embarrassed or horrified by how he treated his wife, but he wants you to know that HE is doing just fine. What man who isn’t a dangerous psychopath physically hurts and threatens the woman he supposedly loves and laughs it off with “Phew! Glad I came out of that intact!”

Coward.

When we heard these 2 were engaged, our response was “what? This asshole tries to hook up with a different girl every day.” He definitely has a well-known temper and sinister side. His former employee, Kathryn Dennis, is quite familiar with all of his “assets.”

This Kincannon psychosis is not ‘entertainment’. He is in dire need of emergency medical attention — not now — but RIGHT NOW.
HOWEVER, this is South Carolina and he is representative of the types that are in control of this pathetic place.

It’s true, Kincannon’s incredibly racist, sexist, homophobic, and idiotic tweets are excellent examples of trolling, much like a kid in high school might do, only with just slightly better grammar. However, he’s in fact the left’s best friend on Twitter because he expresses every vile, un-American belief that conservatives hold, but which most choose to only express around their like-minded friends. He revels in spilling the right’s dirty little secrets, and manages to make conservatives look even worse than they already do, which is no mean feat. After his many tweets wishing death and suffering and trips to concentration camps for blacks, women, gays and other Americans unpopular among conservatives, I for one, hope Kincannon gets a big, black injection of karma when he ends up in prison.
