EX-SCGOP LEADER, SOCIAL MEDIA PROVOCATEUR SUSPENDED FROM PRACTICING LAW AFTER “MAJOR MELTDOWN”
|| By FITSNEWS || The S.C. Supreme Court has suspended the law license of Columbia, S.C. attorney, former SCGOP official and social media provocateur extraordinaire Todd Kincannon after he allegedly suffered a “major meltdown” this week. Not only that, the court has placed Kincannon on “incapacity inactive status” and assigned his client’s files and financial accounts to another attorney.
News of the suspension/ transfer was posted to the court’s website on Friday afternoon.
What happened? According to sources at the court’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC), Kincannon’s meltdown occurred during a court appearance this week. Following this alleged incident, the self-described “honey badger of American politics” is said to have sent “multiple emails and facsimile messages” reportedly containing “menacing language and images” to a variety of different recipients.
Among the images? Pictures of Kincannon with a gun pointed to his head.

Kincannon has reportedly been sent to a Columbia, S.C. mental health facility for an undisclosed period of time in the aftermath of his alleged “meltdown.”
What prompted all this? It’s not immediately clear.
We know Kincannon was charged with criminal domestic violence in April in the aftermath of a bizarre incident involving his wife. According to a police report, he grabbed his wife’s arm during a March 26 argument inside their parked car, “squeezing it tightly, thus preventing her from exiting the vehicle.”
Kincannon’s wife told police at the time that her husband threatened to kill her, himself and her family during the incident – threats he is accused of having made previously.
According to our sources at the court, Kincannon’s latest missive contained similar suicidal threats.
Kincannon has inflamed the far left for years with his over-the-top social media pronouncements – prompting liberal websites across the country to gleefully document his troubles earlier this year.
Our guess? They’re going to have a field day with this report …
As politically incorrect provocateurs ourselves, this website has always appreciated Kincannon’s role in the marketplace of ideas – even when we haven’t agreed with him. Unfortunately, it’s becoming increasingly clear to us that he’s got some real issues that need addressing.
We hope he gets the help he needs …
