Alan Wilson Punts On State House Probe

SOUTH CAROLINA ATTORNEY GENERAL RECUSES HIMSELF IN ONGOING CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION || By FITSNEWS || S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson is recusing himself from an ongoing state-federal investigation into corruption at the S.C.

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson is recusing himself from an ongoing state-federal investigation into corruption at the S.C. State House.

Again …

For the second time in as many years, Wilson is handing off prosecutorial authority in a public corruption case to S.C. first circuit solicitor David Pascoe – citing potential conflicts of interest related to the probe.

“Out of an abundance of caution, (Wilson) has designated Solicitor Pascoe to handle any matters involving certain legislative members,” a statement from Wilson’s office read.


According to The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier, Wilson’s latest handoff – well, “punt” – took Pascoe completely by surprise.

The probe” – exclusively unearthed by this website last September – has already brought down powerful former S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell.

Last October, Harrell pleaded guilty to six ethics-related counts, resigned his office and got three years of probation.  Harrell also signed a cooperation agreement with the government agreeing to assist investigators moving forward – although it’s not clear if (or how) he’s been called upon to honor that agreement in the months since he cut his deal.

Pascoe handled Harrell’s prosecution after Wilson recused himself from any matters involving the former Speaker, citing undisclosed conflicts.

Numerous state lawmakers have been rumored to be under the probe’s microscope – although it’s been several months since the investigation was on anyone’s radar.

At least publicly …

In fact things had gotten so quiet in recent months many believed the investigation was over.

Clearly that’s not the case …

Wilson’s statement referencing “certain legislative members” indicates an ongoing investigation.  In fact many political insiders believe his recusal indicates at least some of those members could be affiliated with the neo-Confederate political empire of Richard Quinn and Associates – which manages the political destinies of numerous state lawmakers and elected officials, including Wilson.

Wilson’s office did not immediately respond to our request for comment on his recusal, however a statement distributed by Wilson’s press secretary Mark Powell indicated he would “not comment on ongoing criminal investigations.”

What are state and federal prosecutors looking for?

Cash doled out by political action committees is said to be at the heart of the investigation.   In fact these alleged disbursements were rumored to be among the items discussed in a heavily redacted S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) report on Harrell – news of which also broke exclusively on FITS.

Stay tuned …

Whatever information we receive on the investigation we’ll be sure to pass along.

I hope hey get all the crooked bastards. And then the handful of others can turn this thing around for us.

However, experience tell us that any infraction will be technical in nature, or campaign related. As we all know, no one ever stole a penny from the government or the taxpayers. Wink, wink.

Dot August 1, 2015 at 1:05 am

You are right Metts got a year. Frazier is still walking around free. Amodio got an ankle bracelet…real punishment for all of those years of corruption!

SCJR July 31, 2015 at 9:42 pm

And Wilson thinks he is going to Governor someday? He’ll punt on all the decisions–letting Rick Quinn make them. Let Pascoe do the dirty work, clean out the corruption, and Pascoe for Governor!! A guy who will do something.

flip July 31, 2015 at 9:58 pm

I will vote Wilson for Governor if he can explain why with Obama/SCOTUScare the federal funding for Planned Parenthood is no longer needed.Why would Planned Parenthood need ANY money with Obamacare in place?

The SC AG should shut these clinics down.I don’t give a shit about these delusional witch hunts for information that matters NOT!

nitrat August 1, 2015 at 8:48 am

Smart move.
Vote for a governor based on national issues a governor can’t do a thing about except make meaningless political gestures that will only get us sued and be overturned.
That mentality – or, lack thereof – has been working out so well for SC since 2002.
But, apparently every GOP voter falls for it.

flip August 1, 2015 at 9:27 am

lol…answer the question…why does Planned Parenthood need federal funding with Obamacare in place?

sally August 1, 2015 at 3:10 pm

LOL?.. The Hyde Ammendment prevents federal funding for abortions unless rape or incest. Any abortions that occur as a result of Medicaid are state funded at the discretion of the state..

Right Wing Bullshit August 1, 2015 at 4:11 pm

Decision August 3, 2015 at 11:24 am

Let’s see.. Allen Wilson for Governor.. Curtis Loftis for Governor… Rick Quinn for Governor… Oh, be still my heart.. I need to make a decision between corruption, corruption and corruption. And this is a very important decision…

Frank August 4, 2015 at 7:39 am

Or ook in the mirror and vote “coward.”

Please, read the links below… Entertaining and very informative on Loftis 2003…. He cannot change his personality… Poor thing.!topic/!msg/

Manray9 July 31, 2015 at 11:39 pm

Shocking! The Republican AG with ambitions for higher office refuses to do his job in the investigation of other Republicans in the State House. And why do things never change in SC?

nitrat August 1, 2015 at 8:36 am

There used to be a time when a corruption busting AG was on his way to fame and almost endlessly high office.
But, in the 21st century SCGOP, all the AG wants to do is wimp out time and time again.
Of course, this is SC, and he figures as long as he has the R after his name, the same voters who missed that Nikki Haley never paid a local, state or federal tax on time or at all unless a lien was imposed, will give him their votes, too.

Manray9 August 1, 2015 at 10:49 am

Unfortunately corruption is exposed in SC only when the feds come in and do it. We refuse to clean up our own house.

Well-Paid Takers August 1, 2015 at 12:48 pm

Yep, too true.

Same with state-agency incompetence. It takes a citizens’ revolt, lawsuits, and media coverage to get things close to fixed.

Manray9 August 1, 2015 at 6:52 pm

There’s no “upside” to good government in SC. Why bother? Elected officials may be incompetent, lazy, or corrupt and the sheep will go to the polls and reelect them.

Kelly August 1, 2015 at 7:53 pm

Elected officials do not run SC.

Bureaucrats run state government. They run it by leading the elected officials around by the nose, feeding them with the info that best suits the bureaucrats interest.

They run SC by making issues more complicated than they really are, so that the officials and the public can’t understand them.

They run SC by forming alliances with the press to leak stories unfavorable to the good officials that care, and favorable to the lazy and aloof official that could care less about their constituents.

They run SC such that they maximize their power and prestige and salary to the detriment of the interests of the citizens of SC.

Elected officials enable the bureaucrats by being lazy. And when an elected official is not lazy and is in fact energetic, the bureaucrats remove him from office, or damage him in the effort, which amounts to the same thing.

Manray9 August 1, 2015 at 8:06 pm

I don’t agree that the politicians are passive elements in the system. They could control the bureaucrats if they wanted to. As I said above: There is no “upside” in it.

Kelly August 1, 2015 at 8:55 pm

Yes, they could do something if it was in their best interest.

However, if an elected official does nothing but smile, be nice to the press and toe the party line ,he will be in office till the day he dies.

Why would a pol in SC do anything? There is no upside to meaningful action, only downside. The moment they take on the status quo they are eviscerated by the status quo and their friends, and usually the press. (When is the last time the press supported a reformer?)

The best thing a pol can do is sit quietly and collect his pay and benefits.

Love August 2, 2015 at 1:46 pm

Loftis is collecting his pay and benefits… for sure. And he takes care of his intimate friend Mike Montgomery and he takes kickbacks like vacations in Italy in the villa of Ed McMullen. Ed handles advertising for the Future Scholar 529. Love me , I love you back… The tax payers are violated… But who cares?

Steve August 2, 2015 at 4:23 pm

Such deception. Really incredible.

Love August 2, 2015 at 5:51 pm

I don’t know about that. Check out Loftis on this: Looks racist to me. But then, to Curtis, it is never Curtis’s fault. The worst kind of racist is the one who deceives himself that he isn’t racist. Model for that: Curtis Loftis.

Racist August 2, 2015 at 6:06 pm

Loftis is racist to the core…Dangerous and vicious. What a fine elected official!! Vomit.. He needs to resign or be “fired” as soon as possible.

Lenny August 2, 2015 at 6:11 pm

Your wisdom is incomplete, your judgement is ill-refined. Is that why you were fired from the Treasurer’s office?

Melody August 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm

Oh well, I have wound up the anti Loftis brigade. Time for me to rest and chuckle.

Pete, let me know if you need screen shots of the older stuff. I have them all.

Winston August 2, 2015 at 6:09 pm

Yes, please go to a gay, democrat activist to see what matter here in SC.
Daniel Brennan and his gay mafia are after Loftis. That is why I like Loftis even more!

Gay August 2, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Winston, are you saying that Loftis is NOT GAY?

Faye August 2, 2015 at 6:37 pm

I don’t know such things. But I do know Dan is an openly gay man running a conservative political action group. Just wait till the veterans of SC see the photos of Dan’s grinder page. Whew, and they thought they saw sick crap in Iraq!

Drunk August 2, 2015 at 6:44 pm

I see that Loftis is drunk, very drunk. What a role model !

Billy Bog the Gay August 2, 2015 at 7:46 pm

Please come over for a drink. A Cosmopolitan with you would be divine. I could make little finger sandwiches and we could watch Ru Paul and the Drag show contest!

Fabulous! Simply FAB!

Drunk August 2, 2015 at 6:59 pm

Loftis is drunk….

BC78 August 2, 2015 at 7:35 pm

I have known Curtis since high school and know that to be false. You Loftis haters can turn any thread into a anti-Loftis thread. That is sick.

Hello August 2, 2015 at 8:15 pm

Hello, Mike Montgomery.. nice to hear from you. How is your business association with Curtee going these days? I hear that it is very lucrative. You have known Loftis since HS? Really?

Minz August 2, 2015 at 6:41 pm

Is this the same Daniel Brennan that tweets bad stuff about Donald Trump, Curtis Loftis and Nikkin Haley? And protested to have the flag come down? The same Dan that was fired from the Treasurer’s office?

I did not know he was employable.

Gameisup August 5, 2015 at 8:25 am

Curtis Loftis is a bully and a vicious cyberbully. From way back. In 2004 on Alt. talk.royalty Curtis Loftis was exposed as “gay, dick head and UR one evil guy, trying out of jealousy to ruin something positive…” and The Saluda Foundation was exposed as a”Buckshit Organisation , no one takes seriously… Lets write to Loftis church and tell them of his evil and the Saluda Foundation. Close down his charity…” Loftis had many false names and posts : RichinUS2003, Chris Richards, Cloftis,.. On 1/20/04 Under Serbia: Orthodox church.. “This guy Loftis started an attack on Princess Linda…He accuses her of embezzlement but offers no proof….It is obvious that this guy Curtis Loftis is wired and probably mentally unstable…Mr Loftis, go away you are a pariah..” Yes, Loftis is experienced in cyberbullying and false accusations without proof, He must resign now

Rob August 2, 2015 at 6:13 pm

Loftis clear reported what he saw. There is a video to back it up. left wingers just never miss a chance to split the races. Too bad really. Just too bad.

Corporal Brotherly Love August 2, 2015 at 8:08 pm

How nice. Poster named Love, casting hate. That’s like a gay man with no military service heading a veterans group in SC.

(“heading?” Get it?)

Vulgarman August 2, 2015 at 8:26 pm

Your jokes are sick .. When Loftis is drunk, he talks like you… penis, balls, sexual innuendoes. You lost all credibility.. Vulgar man, not to be trusted, ever. Yes, Loftis is a gay man with no military service and no education..

Allen August 2, 2015 at 9:11 pm

blah blah blah. You are like a second grader writing on a bathroom wall. Such BS.

Take a clue. Nobody is listening to you and your little group of malcontents,

clemsonguy August 2, 2015 at 4:55 pm

Loftis is a typical tea party dope. His recent tweet that rightfully so got him some bad press was moronic and racist.

Missy August 2, 2015 at 8:06 pm

Such silly little lies you tell.

RogueElephant August 2, 2015 at 8:18 am

You are dead on right about this and Curtis Loftis is the perfect example. These bureaucrats get a “gubment”job and after a few years of getting into the job they learn how to manipulate the process to their base beliefs. Most bureaucrats couldn’t hold down a real job but screw the system and good politicians.

Ellie August 2, 2015 at 12:06 pm

It’s true. Loftis came in as an outsider for reform. Now he is a bureaucrat of the first order. over 80% turnover in his office since he came. Many of those disillusioned were hired by him and were not entrenched bureaucrats. Too bad.

Fake August 2, 2015 at 1:16 pm

Curtis Loftis has assault charges against him, violent temper beyond control, a vile life style, lies and false accusations too numerous to count, He hopes to get browny points from the tea party ladies by posting pictures of churches on his Facebook!!! What a fake man. sick and mentally unstable.

Alec August 2, 2015 at 2:20 pm

What a little deceptive little creep you are. Too bad real names of posters are not required.

Baby punks like u would go away in a minute. You are, after all, a coward. Why else would you lie on a blog with the soul purpose to hurt someone. ?

Liars lie. That is what they do.

Scott August 2, 2015 at 4:22 pm

Just that Homosexual Daniel Brennan carping at Loftis. Loftis let him go because of poor performance and he is mad.

Daniel and his boyfriend are just back from Iceland where the legal age of consent is 14.

Wow, wonder how Daniel liked that? I mean 14 is awfully young.

Jealous August 2, 2015 at 4:47 pm

Heard that Loftis is homosexual and that he likes young men with a big bulge.. How many PR guys left the STO? FIVE, Five…Something very sordid about that.. Why do they leave ? Is Loftis preying on young men? Curtis could not have them, so…they left.. Nothing to do about poor performance at work… Poor performance in other areas.. Rejection makes a State Treasurer very mad, and very jealous, indeed.

Pete@concernedveteransfor amer August 2, 2015 at 5:24 pm

What a pack of deception. What a fertile mind you have, full of nasty little vices and sins.

I see it is time for me to take care of this.

Bruce August 2, 2015 at 6:16 pm

You have Curtis confused with Dan Breenan, who just returned from a vacation where the legal age of gay sex was 14! hmmm, i wonder how much cash Daniel and his boyfriend spent? I wonder if the Concerned Veterans for America financed any of that trip.

There might be photos. If anyone gets photos post them, especially if there are 14 or 15 year old boys in it.

Movie Producer Pat August 2, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Are there videos of Dan Brennan and boyfriend in this vacation sex land where the legal age is 14?

R. Lime August 2, 2015 at 7:43 pm

It may be on Grindr called little piggy porn. I have watched it over and over, but hard to see anything. Size is evidently not important while on vacations in countries where the age of consent for gat sex is 14

Sam August 2, 2015 at 8:26 pm

Legal consent to gay sex at the age of 14? Wow, Daniel must have searched all the porn sites to find that out.

That is what I like about Daniel. If you want to know about gay sex laws he is the guy!

Orphans August 3, 2015 at 7:31 am

Rumors are rampant that Loftis used his Saluda Charitable foundation in Ukraine because it provided easy access to young orphans boys… How sick is that? He knows all about sex laws in Ukraine! Sick, sick..

Wilbur August 3, 2015 at 7:47 am

Ask Daniel Brenan. He knows about such things. See grinder videos for fresh info.

Projection August 3, 2015 at 9:02 am

Wilbur, You can bet that if Loftis talks about violence against women, he has done it. See police report. If he talks about sex with 14 years old, he has done it. If he talks about lies, false accusations, he has done it. If he talks about grinder videos, he has done it. If he talks about traveling with a gay man, he has done it. Logan Simmons and many others? This is a peculiar personality trait called “projection” in which a person projects his own behavior onto others. Many narcissistic people have it.

Andrew August 3, 2015 at 7:36 pm

Daniel, your mind is soon wonderful. How perfect that little world just be. Your fantasy capture my young heart.

Cum see me this weekend.

Videos August 4, 2015 at 6:19 pm

Are there videos of Curtis Loftis and boyfriends and more for his vacation in California and many other places? We, the tax payers of SC want to see them. Loftis needs to come clean, CLEAN. He needs antibiotics, beach, and more , as he is infected with a vile, loathsome Incurable disease. Are there any videos with the male orphans in Ukraine and Serbia? Did Loftis use the Saluda Foundation to have access to young boys?

Mako August 4, 2015 at 7:57 pm

Daniel, Daniel Daniel,

What are we going to do with you. You write nasty lies about other people yet are going to a vacation spot where 14 year old boys can have legally have gay sex.

I heard a rumor your boyfriend Steven had a great with the stack of $20.00 bills you took. But I guess a 14 year old does not know about business and may charge only a little bit. Or maybe you pay by the inch?

Someone said there were photos of you guys with the local boys but I have not seen them. Your Grindr site has me locked out. Hope you are not mad a me.

Oh well, if it is legal at 14 I guess it is not a sin. But still, it is kinda creepy to me.

hope you took the condoms. Those boys are kinda ruff.

Travel August 2, 2015 at 6:26 pm

Curtis, what do you have to gain by posting such things. You are a disgusting , vile man. A rejected gay man with the decency of a roach. Oh, the bug man of West Columbia with many traveling gay companions ..We know you.

Nick August 2, 2015 at 6:34 pm

Oh Dan,

Don’t be silly. This is not Curtis, this is the guy you sent a penis pic to 2 weeks ago on Grndr while you were in a Concerned Veterans for America meeting. I was offended by it, so small and smelly looking. I told you I would get you back. B

Besides, I like seeing you mad at Curtis!

Goaway August 2, 2015 at 6:50 pm

Loftis is drunk… Typical Loftis … after too many drinks, he talks penis and balls. Mike Montgomery and the AG should tell him to resign.

Smelly August 4, 2015 at 6:45 am

It appears that we have our version of Anthony Weiner sitting in the State Treasurer Office. Loftis is obsessed by certain body parts and takes pictures of them!! He will be caught .. Sordid

Peter August 4, 2015 at 7:37 am

Daniel, Daniel, Daniel,

Your Grindr photos have disappeared. But I have screen shots. Over a year of them. Silly you.

Max August 4, 2015 at 5:47 pm

Oh, Curt.. This is Max.. I thought it was you.. I got the same picture.. Hope to see you back at the Phoenix Bar, in NY city. We had a hell of a time last week.

Brian August 2, 2015 at 6:22 pm

Daniel Brennan being placed in charge of a Veterans organization is a hoot. Wow, he has no military service and he is openly gay, He is making lots of money while traveling on vacation after vacation while veterans are suffering from their wounds and unemployment . This development makes me sick.

While is he playing with his bf, in a vacation country where the age of gay sex is 14, vets are hurting! This is disgusting.

Mouth August 2, 2015 at 6:32 pm

Loftis, STFU. Shut your vicious mouth. Jealous and so mad you are… Mike Montgomery should tell you to STFU… and stay away from social media.

Scott August 2, 2015 at 6:35 pm

Haha, oh Danny boy. Keep guessing. You are not even close.

Andrew is your desire August 3, 2015 at 7:34 pm

California August 4, 2015 at 5:34 pm

Curtis Loftis being placed in charge of the STO is a hoot. Wow, He has no military service and he is gay. He is making lots of money while traveling with his gay companion.. This make me sick. While he is playing with his gay friends in California , the tax payers of SC are getting screwed…. This is disgusting.

Jealous August 2, 2015 at 7:27 pm

Have another drink, Curtis… You need to be drunk… You have lost all credibility

Dan August 2, 2015 at 5:22 pm

Wow, what a pack of lies.

Alec August 2, 2015 at 2:15 pm

How funny. Loftis is still working hard against the system. He has just been quieter about it.

I know for a fact that PEBA and RSIC think, talk and meet regularly just to fend the guy off.

He is the only guy that fights for the taxpayer.

LLC August 2, 2015 at 2:27 pm

You speak for yourself, Mr Anonymous.

Faye August 2, 2015 at 5:21 pm

Seems like Loftis has run the lousy employees off and replaced them with much better ones. I thin that is what is called attacking the status quo.

Some state employees are fat, lazy and always faking some injury. Some are great people that work hard. The trick is to fire the former, hire the latter.

Good job, Mr. Treasurer.

Life August 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm

Have you seen Loftis? Fat, ugly, lazy, infected with an incurable loathsome disease, with an ugly life style… Fat fingers and a fat ass. Take a good look at him, please

Scott August 2, 2015 at 7:31 pm

Lying Internet troll as profession of lifestyle?

Daniel August 2, 2015 at 8:24 pm

I have and find him rather pleasing. I think about him often. I may love him.

Goodriddance August 2, 2015 at 10:25 pm

The greatest illusion of 2015 is that Loftis thinks that his infected butt and oozing penis are a source of envy and desire. Young men with a bulge, the Koch brothers and the veterans will squash any political burp named Curtis Loftis. Bye, Bye Loftis and good riddance, Loftis.

Puddy in your butch hands August 2, 2015 at 11:52 pm

Daniel Brennan, it turns me on when you drop the Nellie routine and go butch.

That is hot, Danny, simply hot. Butch it up some more. Please please please!

I bet those young veterans love it too. I guess this is your “special mentoring” you offer. Nice!

Ken August 2, 2015 at 2:25 pm


Curtis has had all sorts of charges, claims etc made against him yet he keeps on fighting. He beats them back but still has to out up with the stupid charges.

Even the Koch Brothers and their Concerned Veterans for America are after him because he want take their orders!

The investment commission has spent a fortune in time and effort to get rid of Loftus and he is still there, slugging away.

Fool August 2, 2015 at 3:46 pm

Ken…Slugging away? You mean fucking the tax payers of SC and filling his pockets and the pockets of his friends. Loftis lost over 200 millions from the trust fund of retirees of SC… millions have gone to his intimate friend and others.. Ethics violation coming up soon… What are the orders of the Koch Brothers and the concerned veterans for America? Please explain, you fool…

Cal August 2, 2015 at 4:18 pm

You are a liar. The investment commission lost over $200 million in 2008 and 09.

Loftis began his service in 2011. Your lie does not pass basic smell test.

As far as Ethics Commission, Loftis had a complaint filed on him by an investment common stooge. The hearing is scheduled. He has not been convicted of anything. It is a technical violation at best.

The Commissiom has lost, overpaid on fees, and underperformed billions of dollars. Yet u cast lies about Loftis.

Clearly, u have an agenda other than one of truth and honor.

Ellie August 2, 2015 at 11:32 am

You haven’t offered one piece of proof for anything you said so it is just opinion. My opinion is 180 degrees from yours. I have posted no proof for my opinion either. So how do we know who is right?

Let me know when this blog becomes an academic paper.

I don’t hate ’em.
I just think they’re really, really stupid.
And, since they don’t have the capacity for independent thought, live in the con-servative echo chamber and constantly regurgitate the talking points they find there, it’s doesn’t take much critical thinking to figure that out.

LMAO!!!! Just like all those indictments involving the MBACC and those ‘envelopes’ you stated as FACT were right around the corner… and never happened?My God son, when will you finally get it-that nobody buys the lies and scum you peddle?

Only thing that came out of that debacle was Mark Kelley suing The Sun News and its writer for the defaming bullshit/ libel it published and winning a SIX figure judgement.

Here we go again?

The Buzzman August 1, 2015 at 1:17 pm

How much of that has Kelley collected?

Correct answer: ZERO

How often is the the winning of that suit by Kelley cited as case law in the USA?

Correct answer: NEVER

Good reason for that. And you know exactly what that reason is.

This site is a damned troll magnet from hell.

Political and other forms of intrigue, no moderation, the ability to post anonymously and the fact that many of “Powers That Be” read the articles and comments here (and some post anonymously), I surprised it isn’t worse than it is at times. Even Will says it’s like Lord of the Flies in here it times though.

All true, but it is fairly easy to tell the lie from the truth. In fact, I look for the lie as that almost always points me to the right direction.

Deception is difficult to pull off and when you see an attempt at it, know there is a reason for it, and if you figure out that reason you have found a real gem of info. Often, these dumbs asses posting on here trying to ruin someone but aurorally leaving a trail of vengeance and arrogance that leads right back to them!

Remember he is Joe Wilson’s son! He and Joe have an incestuous relationship with Danny Frazier, illegal gambling ring leader in Lexington, adulterer and disgraced Lexington Councilman.

They also have an cozy relationship with the other infamous adulterers and associates of the Ring, the Peelers, Metts, etc. Donna Peeler worked in Wilson’s office while married to another man and having an affair with Bob Peeler.

Randy Halfacre’s relationship with this bunch defeated him as Mayor and when he ran for Frazier’s Council seat.

Soft Sigh from Hell August 1, 2015 at 12:43 pm

There is that “whiff” about them all.

I hate creeps August 1, 2015 at 3:30 pm

It is easy to create whiffs about elected officials. The law makes it a heavy burden for a elected official to defend himself.

Some of the most rotten, lying, miserable people in SC are the ones creating the whiffs. They know that creating the whiff, dragging the official through the newspapers, etc, is in fact a win. What the Ethics Committee or Ethics Commission does is just a bonus.

Some officials are bums, but many are not. Too bad a creep can create a whiff for the price of a postage stamp or an anonymous post.

see your reflection? August 1, 2015 at 8:53 pm

Ethics my rear. The House Senate Ethics Committees and the State Ethics Commission is a farce and a joke. They do nothing. It has been well written about here and makes a mockery of the process.
You are obviously one of the officials who benefit from the Throne of Power. When you have the political connections, you can pretty well get away with anything and do it at the expense of the taxpayers!!!
When you mention creeps look in the mirror! You will probably find one of those you attempt to defend and spin the narrative in their favor!
it is called abuse of office and abuse of process!

I hate creeps August 1, 2015 at 9:05 pm

Silly you. You have not a clue what I think.

I think there should be one Ethics entity that has police like powers to investigate ethical wrongdoing!

As it is now, officials can be dragged through the mud because one person files a complaint. That person has no liability for his complaint, but the official has to respond and be the focus of the press. It can cost an official 25 to 50 grand to defend himself and to win, yet the complainant has spent only the cost of a postage stamp and the time to write a complaint. Even when the complainant has been shown to be dishonest or wrong nothing happens to him.

Many complaints are just junk. I know because I studied many of them for a project. But they are treated as if they were legitimate, which of course I understand. But nonetheless, where does the pol go to get back his reputation?

I hate crooks in politics, but we need a system to deal with that, not to allow crackpots with grudges to run wild.

Nelly August 2, 2015 at 11:28 am

Sounds like you got an ethics complaint against you. Nobody to blame but you. You are the one that broke the law. Quit trying to find a scapegoat and man up!

I hate crooks August 2, 2015 at 4:12 pm

I am not covered by the Ethics Act. I am free of those silly people

Your comment is illogical.

B does not necessarily follow A.

Let’s pretend that a Democrat, with whom you share ideological tendencies, was elected. He starts to change the old boy GOP way of doing things. Then, a crackpot, closet KKK member file ethics charges against the Democrat. Your Democrat friend is a working man, so he can’t afford the 20 to 50 thousand dollars to defend himself.

Either he is not properly defended and suffers the possibility of loss or he mortgages his house to raise the money.

Even if he finds the money and wins the Ethics case, the negative publicity ruins his career and he can’t get re-elected.

Change in SC starts by allowing real leaders the ability to make change. Our petty laws harass those seeking that needed change and ensure that the status quo remains.

euwe max August 2, 2015 at 9:55 am

any harm that befalls a Republican is a deserved reproof from God.

I hate creeps August 2, 2015 at 10:03 am

Alas, the system is rigged. The GOP has the status quo protected and it, cleverly, uses left wing hate to fuel their scheme of protection.

Hate, an unattractive quality that is rarely appealing on anyone, is a constant source of protection for the GOP in SC. They raise money on it, they are elected on it, and certainly, thank you for supplying such an unrestricted supply of that valuable resource.

Pissed off voter August 1, 2015 at 11:02 am

Alan Wilson has Danny frazier’s criminal case in his office which is completely improper. Alan party with Danny when they lived in wood creek subdivision together.

I find it very suspect that jimmy Mets and Jason amodio has already entered pleas and serving their sentence, but Alan has yet to bring Danny Frazier to trial.

When Alan Wilson moved Danny fraizer’s criminal case to his office and has yet to bring him to trial, I lost all respect for him and his inaction to bringing his friend, Danny Frazier, to justice.

Follow the Dots August 2, 2015 at 8:49 am

I find it disturbing and interesting.
1)Wilson, Frazier lived in Wood Creek.
2)They then moved to another subdivision off Mineral Springs road Frazier lived next door to Bob Peeler, Wilson lived right up the street.
3)Frazier, P.eeler and Amodio partied, golfed and vacationed together together, with Mayor Halfacre, Jason Amodio.
4) Peeler and Donna worked in, campaigned for, stood at the polls with and ran Frazier bumper stickers for Frazier in Town Council race, and Fraziers attempt to win a legislative seat.
5) Donna worked for Joe Wilson, peeler campaigned for Wilson.
6) Frazier, Amodio, and the Peelers all supported and campaigned for Metts.
7)Greg Leon, who gave the bribe money to Frazier, for Metts, was also an associate of Frazier and Peeler.
8)Frazier gave bribe money to Amodio for the illegal gambling machines.
9)SLED never moved on the Lexington Ring illegal gambling and only started an investigation, six months after receiving a copy of the FBI affidavit and only after news of the Illegal Ring and bribery Conspiracy was reported publicly in the news.
10)Peeler is an associate of Leon, Metts, James, Amodio and Ring leader Frazier.
11)Frazier is recorded on a secret tape talking of how he has “Law Enforcement on Lockdown”.
12) Amodio, Metts and Leon are investigated by the Feds. and plead guilty.
13)Fraxier still walks free!?
14) The people you run with, play with and associate with illustrates the kind of character and morals you live by.
15) Frazier is an adulterer cheating on his wife, who had cancer!
16) Frazier testified in the divorce proceedings of Peeler and Donna, when they were sued for divorce, on adultery charges. To which they plead guilty. Amodio wrote a sworn affidavit for Peeler and Donna and was later convicted to lying to the Feds, in the Illegal Crime Syndicate Lexington Ring!?
17) peeler’s brother a ranking Senator, Number 2 in the Senate, Donna’s Aunt is Jean Toal.
18) Frazier publicly advised Gresham Barrett to drop out of the runoff with Nikki Haley. Frazier raised money for Haley.
Simple to see how all is relative and depraved and incestuous.

Questions August 3, 2015 at 6:13 pm

The question that needs to be asked is: As bad as this ring incestuousness is, as horribly corrupt as things are, would their political rivals be any better? It’s possible they could be worse in the sense of general governance. Their corruption mostly affects them and others in their corrupt little ring. Huey P. Long was as corrupt as the day was long, but he is arguably the best Governor in Louisiana history.

Weakness August 3, 2015 at 10:56 am

Allen Wilson is friend with Danny Frazier.. He is friend with Loftis? He is taking money from The State Treasurer? The AG needs to come clean… He is friend with Richard Quinn? Recusing himself from sticky situations is not taking action and could be interpreted as weakness. Corruption?

term limits August 4, 2015 at 8:16 am

This the thinking that gives us the elected criminals, liars, cheats and amoral elected officials.
The definition of INSANITY, continuing to do the same thing over and over and expecting different results!
Keep electing and bowing down to these reprobates and see the same results over and over!
Send them ALL packing!
We need term limits because your thinking keeps them in office!

One suspects you are intimately familiar with scum. It seems to flow in your DNA like poop through old rusted plumbing.

Broad sweeping comments about large groups of people are made by posers. Sometimes they are people with intellect but no judgement. Sometimes people with judgement and no intellect. Sometimes by bored assholes.

Beaufort County, SC, filing suit against MERS mortgage database

Colleton County is joining the other counties in the 14th Circuit in a legal challenge to how many mortgages are handled in the United States.
The lawsuit to be filed against Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (“MERS”) seeks to have the database owned by nearly two dozen lenders follow the letter of South Carolina law in recording property records.
Each county’s register of deeds is required to keep records on the liens, like a mortgage, against properties in the county.
MERS, established in 2002, allegedly skirts that requirement. Every time a financial institution sells or buys a loan, a county’s register of deeds is to be notified and the new holder of the mortgage recorded.
The financial institutions that own MERS avoid the cost of making those changes by stating that MERS owns the mortgage, the mortgage holder and the county doesn’t know which financial institution holds the note.
The county’s case against Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems is being handled by Jim Scheider of the Bluffton law firm of Vaux & Marscher.
The suit being prepared for Colleton County alleges “The MERS System has created massive confusion as to the true owners of beneficial interest in mortgage loans and mortgages throughout the United States, including South Carolina, and has harmed U.S. counties, including plaintiff Colleton County. In short, the MERS System has eroded the transparency and corrupts the chain of title of the public recording system in the United States and the state of South Carolina.”
An attempt to obtain a comment from MERS officials on the suit was unsuccessful.
Scheider worked with Beaufort County officials to file the first local lawsuit against MERS, which holds 50,000 mortgages in Beaufort County.
After that suit was filed in Beaufort County Common Pleas Court, the defendant’s attorneys filed a motion seeking to have the case moved to federal court, where MERS has had success in defending legal challenges to its operation.
The judge who heard that motion, ruled the case would remain in the state’s court system.
Armed with that ruling, Scheider contacted officials in the other four counties that make up the 14th Circuit and sought their permission to file suits against MERS on their behalf. Vaux & Marscher will only get paid if the suits are successful.
Scheider said that he expects to see the suits removed from the Common Pleas Courts in each county and assigned to South Carolina’s Business Court.
It is a move that he will not oppose, Scheider suggested.“This is complex litigation involving business law,” he explained.
In 2007 the Supreme Court of South Carolina issued an administrative order establishing the business court.
The business court, with venues in Charleston, Richland and Greenville counties, was established to handle complex business, corporate and commercial matters
