FOLLOW THE MONEY … IF YOU CAN

|| By FITSNEWS || Last week this website busted open a major scandal at the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) involving audit reports that were hidden from state lawmakers – and the public.

Looks like that’s not all the agency is hiding …

According to a report from Rick Brundrett at The Nerve, the agency’s collective cash balances mysteriously soared from $269 million at the end of July to $518.7 million a week ago.

Wow … did somebody get lucky in Vegas?

According to Brundrett, SCDOT’s budget has grown by more than $700 million over the last three years to $1.84 billion – a whopping 54 percent increase after adjusting for inflation.

Remember that the next time “Republicans” at the S.C. State House tell you we have to raise gas taxes …

Can they fix the SR-555/ Farrow Road bridge over I-77 now? Please?

No. We need a new expressway from Aiken to Allendale to spur economic growth:)

No, I want a super-highway from Pelion to Swansea.

Rocky, would your proposal include Bub Schumpert Road? If the connectors are in the right place, the Grand Turnip could open a 24 hour mini-mart, and become a millionaire.
But he would have to change his name to” Mahmoud Mojooly” and name his store the “MoJo Gas and Pet Playground Park” ….

NO! First comes Aiken to Salley for the Chitlin’ Strut, together with additional paved parking, handicapped ramps, and additional porta-potties with plenty of paper supplies.

There was a rootin’-tootin’ cowboy who sashayed to the outhouse in back of the saloon. He heard a noise coming from inside, so he look down the hole. Sure as shootin’, there was an old Indian
looking back up. The cowboy offered him a hand and said, “Poor fellah. How long have you been stuck down there in that awful hole?”

The Indian answered sadly, “Many
moons.”

Amen to that Colonel!…. That area is the worse. I lived in NYC for 18 years and thought I had seen the worse roads/streets imaginable, until now.

The need screams for a federal forensic investigative audit of this place. I guarantee if it is done, dozens will end up indicted.

Nobody in SC government wants a real audit.

Cindy Ross Scoppe thinks any auditor that speaks up is “creepy.”

Explains a lot. Scoppe, a big government liberal, does not want anyone to identify fraud or waste because she wants a big, taxpayer paid road bill to pass next year.

Funny how liberals will over look wasting tax dollars to get the nice things they want.

Who gives a shit what Cindy Ross-Scoppe thinks. I have not read her column in 5 years. So predictable and completely uninspiring.

That bitch needs a make over. The Japo-Chino- Car and Body Spa on two notch road could give her a detailing. Wax that face, bleach the lice out of that hair, and replace those Pipi long stockings with a Hillary pants suit. Then, and only then, should she be allowed out in public.

She needs an air valve in her neck so we can blow the shit out of her nasty head.
