EASY, LADIES …

|| By FITSNEWS || A dashing young deputy solicitor in Greenville, S.C. has reportedly spoken with South Carolina State Senator Mike Fair and informed him of his intention to challenge him in next spring’s “Republican” primary election.

William Timmons – who works in the office of “God Squad” prosecutor Walt Wilkins – will reportedly challenge Fair for S.C. Senate District 6, which includes the northern suburban region of Greenville (including the town of Travelers Rest, S.C.).

Timmons may not be the only one challenging Fair, either …

Sources tell FITS several other “Republican” candidates may run against the 69-year-old, who has represented the district since November 1995.  Prior to that, Fair was in the S.C. House of Representatives for more than a decade – meaning he’s been in Columbia, S.C. for the past thirty years.

In addition to working for Wilkins – the nephew of former U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins – Timmons is an entrepreneur who runs a CrossFit gym and a clothing company, according to his corporate bio.

Who are the other candidates eyeing this seat?  Sources tell FITS one is a sitting lawmaker and the other a former appointee to a statewide board.  Both candidates are said to have “considerable resources.”

“They would both be credible in a primary battle if they wanted to be,” one GOP operative told FITS.

Stay tuned … when we get more information on this looming primary race, we’ll be sure to pass it along.

Maybe his electronic (Morse) keyer is stuck and will only send “dahs” ( – ).

Great! Not only is he another damn blue nose, he is tied to the ethically questionable Wilkins empire. Just what we need…

He does just own a clothing company, he owns Southern Tide.

Pretty impressive resume.

I believe he is Asst. Solicitor…not Deputy. He’s only been practicing for like 2/3 years. He comes from a VERY rich/well known Timmons family in Greenville. His attorney job is a “hobby” considering he has too much money for his age, thanks to being born into wealth and buying into Southern Tide from H.S friend ties before they blew up.

I work with this man, in a sense. I represent defendants and he prosecutes them. And there’s no need to cast aspersions on him. He’s a fine man, very honest, practical, tough and he has good moral character. He’s not in my district and I’m not an active republican but I’m more conservative than 90 % of the repubs in this town. He would make a good senator.

Fairly simple. Rich kid goes to small law school, works 3 years while starting up small businesses with gramp’s millions, joins several charities of which he contributes little other than a fat donation, then bolts to run for office. Yeah, couldn’t see that coming.
