COUPLE WEIGHS IN ON THEIR DRAMA … TOGETHER?

|| By FITSNEWS || Just when we thought we’d seen everything from the scandal enveloping former S.C. “Republican” party official Todd Kincannon, along comes the very last thing we expected – a joint statement issued by Kincannon and his wife, Ashely Griffith.

At first we thought we were dealing with some sort of April Fools’ Day joke … but then we checked the calendar and today is April 2.

Oh, and then we received messages from both Kincannon and Griffith attesting to the veracity of the statement.  So … it’s legit.

Kincannon is the self-described “honey badger of American politics,” an unapologetic, wildly inappropriate social media firebrand who has enraged the far left with his deliberately provocative pronouncements.

So … why are he and his wife making a joint statement?

Well, for those of you waking up from a weeklong nap, this happened.  Then this.  And then this.

Drama, drama, drama …

So … what do they have to say for themselves?

Here goes …

We appreciate the interest and concern created by last week’s incident – and we understand the attention this matter has generated in the local and national media. Our marriage is obviously not perfect, and as a result we are – individually and jointly – receiving counseling in an effort to make the best decisions moving forward. As part of that process, we both agree it is in our shared interest to remain separate from one another for the foreseeable future.

Whatever happens with our personal relationship – we wish each other no ill will professionally, and hope to support each other’s careers into the future.

We are grateful for the prompt, professional and courteous efforts of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department in responding to last week’s incident, however we wish to make it clear we will not be voluntarily participating in any further inquiries regarding this matter – nor will we be testifying in any court proceedings related to this matter.

Furthermore, we will we have no further comment to the media regarding what we believe to be a private matter and a closed case – one warranting no further press attention or expenditure of taxpayer resources.

We are thankful for the kindnesses shown by friends and family members during this period of separation and counseling. And we are thankful to God for providing us with such strong support networks as we seek to determine the next chapter in our lives.

Hmmmm ….

Yeah … we’re gonna just have to let that sit for a moment and collect our thoughts.

Our first reaction?  This is sure as hell a lot more entertaining than Southern Charm.  Or that Iranian nuke deal.

I guess the release of the recording achieved a goal–he seems know now that he is utterly defeated, he holds no cards, and will lay off the threats to kill her and her family. And that he is facing felony charges if he issues further threats. Well played Ashley. Now don’t look back. As he pulled a stunt with getting no marriage license, they still portrayed themselves as a married couple in having a wedding, calling each other husband and wife, maintaining a joint residence, and amply demonstrating intent, enough for a court to give her half of what they accumulated during their marriage. He is not as smart as he claims to be if he didn’t know this.

I’m not an insider, I just know an insider, so this is second hand and take it for what you will. My “source” indicates that Ashely just wants out and to have a normal life. She’s not looking for alimony or anything. My own opinion is, she was smart in 2 respects, 1) she gathered evidence that would make sure he capitulated when she left… and 2) she never became “accustomed” to the lifestyle his family money (not his failed law firm money) could’ve afforded her. If you followed her on twitter and instagram, her favorite restaurant is Bojangles for goodness sakes, and she still drives the same car she did in college. Anyway, she didn’t trap herself with desire for his money, and she made sure she had hard evidence to use as leverage. That, my dears, is the template for getting out of a marriage with an egomaniac. She should write a book and make a buck or two off this slob that way.

I know he plays on outrageous comments to draw attention, many I have laughed at, which I now regret. He is good sport with differing opinions. However, that recording is stuck in my mind. He will never be someone I respect in any regard.

I know medicine can have an effect, I only recently started taking advil v. doctor prescribed Celebrex. I do admit I have a bit of a pill phobia, but don’t fault those who use, as long as they are not hurting someone else.

In this case, based on recordings, his own comments, many other commenters on the page. I have no sympathy. No desire to wreck his life, he just needs to leave and do the right thing. Stop the threats. Stop the violence. Just do what is right. It’s really simple. Maybe years down the road I will think differently, if, he is man enough to do those things.

If it was a political stunt, it was poorly played.

“Emma come first. Den I come. Two asses dey come

“You foul-mouthed people,” the lady yelled. “In this country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”

True Story:
Stationed in DC going to foreign language school, a buddy and I boarded a bus going downtown. We sat behind two elderly women, one of whom was babbling excitedly to the other. My buddy suddenly realized they were speaking Russian, which is his language class. He
is listening and starts to shake trying to hold back his laugher. His eyes water and his face is red. He’s elbowing me but I don’t know what is going on. He busts out laughing and the women turn around and stare at us. He says in Russian, something like, “Excuse me, but I don’t know the girl so don’t worry!” The two women looked at each other and they busted out laughing. The one tells us, “I was telling my friend about the girl in the tv show and who she was having sex with today. My friend was working today and she missed it.”

It’s fairly obvious where she works if you are friends with her on FB, but I won’t share it here. It’s a job she appears to have just started this year. I assume getting a “real” job was one of the checklist items on her escape plan. Todd had no idea the young trophy wife he conned into a fake marriage was actually going to be his intellectual superior.

Reply
Pineapple Twist April 4, 2015 at 3:02 pm

I studiously followed the statistics of unemployment and job growth for years. At the end of the day, someone is always fudging the numbers. Seems it always has to do with political season.

I have found it is easier to look around me, much like the housing bubble, to predict growth/bubbles/decline.

Not a lot of jobs available. Sure a lot of part-time, but not a lot of full time. No matter where I look in SC, the same. Some counties have fared better than others, but we are in no way making any fast growth in employment overall.

We all have the ability to know how our state is doing in any area of growth, simply by looking outside every once in a while. Listening to other people. Making independent judgment calls, that do not rely on data that can be massaged.

Don’t get me wrong, I look at that data too, but I bounce it from other sources and personal experience to make a best guess.
