TREY HARRELL ISN’T RUNNING FOR THE S.C. STATE HOUSE

|| By FITSNEWS || One of the hottest rumors in Palmetto political circles at the moment involves Trey Harrell, son of former S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell (who resigned his office last fall after pleading guilty to ethics charges).

According to the S.C. State House buzz, the younger Harrell – an attorney at the Charleston, S.C.-based Peper Law Firm – has been mulling a challenge to freshman S.C. Rep. Mary Tinkler, who was elected to represent S.C. House District 114 last fall in the aftermath of his father’s fall from grace.

Republicans are targeting this seat as their top “pick-up” priority in the 2016 legislative elections.

So … are the rumors true?  Is the former Speaker’s son really running to reclaim his father’s old seat?

No.

A confidant of the younger Harrell told us the rumors are “absolutely not true.”

“He would win, without a doubt – but he would be coming to Columbia to be part of a complete sh*t show,” the source said.  “That’s the way I look at it.”

The advisor added that Harrell would likely be placed on terrible committees “forever” and “always be a target.”

We can see that …

Harrell, whose wife Amber is expecting the couple’s first child this fall, also doesn’t live in the district.

According to our sources, he reportedly bought a house in the Belle Hall neighborhood of Mount Pleasant, S.C. recently.  That area is represented by S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse – who has another pitched battle on his hands after narrowly surviving last year’s GOP primary.

Will, no story on The Nerve reporting Harrell used campaign funds to repay campaign funds he used illegally?

Just want to point out that it was the source that said Mr Harrell would win. Get your facts together. And name calling? Are you still stuck in the 5th grade?

Harrell was aggressively trying to sell a life insurance
policy to Mrs. Livingston. “Don’t let me pressure you. Why don’t you sleep on my offer and call me in the morning. If you wake up.”

Good for him for staying productive instead of joining “the shit show” while living off the taxpayers.

He obviously has more ethics than the old man.

A young politician from the North sought to relocate in the South. He wrote to a friend in South Carolina, asking him what the prospect seemed to be in
the area for “an honest young politician and Democrat.”

In reply, his friend wrote, “If you are an honest politician, you will have absolutely no competition. If you
are a Democrat, the game laws will protect you.”

Why would he run? He has a great job, smoking hot wife, baby on the way, lives in Charleston, etc. If I was him I would just stay down there and rake it in!

I wouldn’t call working for Mark Peper a “great job.” He’s practiced law for probably a decade and has already been publicly reprimanded by the SC Supreme Court for some shady conduct. http://www.sccourts.org/opinions/HTMLFiles/SC/27441.pdf

I also wouldn’t call his wife “smoking hot.” She’s not unattractive but most of you guys are easily fooled by hair, makeup, and a smile.

He must be a real dumbass if the only job he could get was working for Mark Peper.

A recent return to the Charleston area for the young Harrell as the lovebirds were last living in Columbia.

And isn’t he a Charleston School of Law grad? These jokes really write themselves.

His daddy was speaker of the house and he couldn’t gain admission to USC Law. Mull that over for a moment.

If Mary voted to take my beloved flag down she dont deserve to be voted back in office in 2016.

Mary Tinkler was a welcome, calm presence last Wednesday night from hell. She made a few sane statements somewhere in between Wailin’ Jenny’s [what a great name whoever came up with that]/Mt. Horneus’ eruptions. She stays.

Plus, who doesn’t love a good snicker whenever anyone says “Tinkler”.

I wet myself every time.

John Stineberger is most probable there if he doesn’t run against Mary’s dad for Mayor
