Tom Corbin: Delegation … Or Dereliction?

MISOGYNIST SENATOR AT IT AGAIN …

taylor brown|| By TAYLOR BROWN || One of the hottest issues in the South Carolina Upstate this year is a proposal by Duke Energy to cut a 45-mile path for a new 230 Kilovolt transmission line from Campobello, S.C. to Asheville, N.C.

This article is not about the pros or cons of the transmission lines, but about the bizarre behavior of misogynist S.C. Senator Tom Corbin.  You may recall earlier this year when Corbin made national headlines by referring to women as “lesser cuts of meat” during the debate to strengthen our state’s antiquated domestic violence laws.

This remark came after he told S.C. Senator Katrina Shealy that women should stay “barefoot and pregnant.” But what do we expect from a man who said during a debate over abortion that “a woman always has the right to choose at the time of conception.”

Really?

There are no instances in which a woman doesn’t consent to sex? Really??

Anyway, Duke Energy recently held a public hearing to present some details about its transmission line plan.  At the beginning of this meeting, Corbin stood up and announced that he had to leave for a previous engagement.

Obviously public officials do have other responsibilities, although this issue is of utmost importance to many of Corbin’s constituents.

What’s bizarre is that in announcing his departure before the meeting even began, Corbin said his representative at the meeting would be upstate political “consultant” Kerry Wood.

For those of you unfamiliar with Wood, he’s the guy who has turned trashing his ex-wife – S.C. Rep. Donna Hicks – into a cottage industry.

Wood is a confident of Corbin’s – his political muscle, if you will –  but he has no official position with the state nor is he a staff person in Corbin’s office or on any of the committees on which Corbin serves.  Additionally, I’m unaware of any special expertise Wood has concerning energy issues, power transmission, engineering or any of the other professional fields involved in what is estimated to be a $320 million project.

Even more troubling, Wood does not report who he represents or what issues he may be working on, so the public has no way of knowing about any potential conflicts he may have regarding a project of this magnitude.

But back to Corbin: This is sadly just one more example of why he is unfit to serve.  He could have easily had a staff person or member of the delegation attend this meeting – taking notes or recording the proceedings for later review.

One has to wonder: Was he just shilling so his advisor could land an easy consulting gig?

John White is an Upstate attorney who is thinking of challenging Corbin next spring.  White has deep connections in the community; his family used to run the world famous Beacon Restaurant in Spartanburg.  He could be a big problem for Corbin.

Especially if Corbin continues allowing paid political hacks to do the job he was elected to do …

Taylor Brown is a 20-something Wofford College graduate who somehow got sucked into politics at an early age.  She is easily won over with Rush’s fast food, wine, and spirited political arguments.

Tom came home one night and said “I’m gonna eat in bed tonight, baby.” His wife was thrilled. She got on her best nighty, slid under the sheets and waited. Tom showed up with a pizza.

From Fox News:
“Donald Trump is under fire yet again after insulting the physical appearance of fellow GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

‘Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president,” the Republican frontrunner said in the interview. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?'”

Nothing here and Trump is actually the one that got her in the CNN debate.

Now if Trump would have said she looked like Michelle Obama or a gorilla or a monkey or Debbie WasserMAN Shultz….that is a WHOLE nother thing!

Trump will fix everything – he’s a great deal maker. Just look at his West Palm Beach condo development, where he handed it back to the bank and defaulted on his loan. Stunningly great. Hugely awesome. A fantastic businessman.

Hell, the way he’s going to build the Mexican “wall’ is to build 1,000 Trump Towers and have them fall end to end from Texas to California!!!!!!!
Plus he’s going to build a ladder to the moon to create more jobs and for the Hispanics and Muslims to have somewhere to migrate to………….amid the wild cheers from his pathetic supporters in the background
You bet-cha!!!!!!!!!!!

If I was Ms. Fiorina all I’d say is:
“My husband and or brother (if she has one) will be paying a visit to Donald in about an hour…..
Trump would hide behind his security “goons” like the cowardly draft-dodger that he is…I guarantee….
I’d pay good money to see it fold out…………………..

flip September 10, 2015 at 12:53 pm

?? I know my prediction was correct.All the media did was talk about Trump while his poll numbers rise.

Be funny as hell to see the Hillary aide take the 5th today.That should end her campaign!

Ms. Brown:
Usually I don’t agree with most of your postings but you are spot on with this one…
“Senator” Corbin represents my area (northwest Spartanburg County) and I got a post card in the mail two weeks ago from him stating that he would be at the meeting in Landrum. The card stated something about he could see no use for the power lines, he was standing up for the concerns of his constituents, etc.
I did not attend but I’m not surprised that that demagogue cut out before the meeting because he is so damn gutless and to learn that he stated that he would have that slime Kerry Woods stand in sounds just like something Corbin would do.
I didn’t vote for the dipshit the first time and sure as hell won’t the next time either.
However, Corbin and that other slime “Senator” Lee Bright are darlings of Spartanburg Tea Party’s queen Karen Martin and if I’m not mistaken she and Kerry Woods are joined at the hip and their minions vote just the way they want them to……………………Kindly keep that in mind……
Quick news update from Spartanburg H/J: Landrum City council has gone on record opposing the power line………..

Taylor, I’m curious… does Trump get a free pass on his recent remarks about women?

You don’t give a shit about women.All you care about is projecting your ugly looks and demeanor as a femi-nazi onto other women that are successful and have a life.

Life dealt you a pile of shit and you want other women to feel guilty about it. Grow up. You sound like you are in 6th grade.

Shut up, pussy. You can dedend a sexist pig like Trump? Mama has a goid question, you just have hyperbole.

“Look at that face,” he said, according to Rolling Stone. “Would anyone vote for that?”

“Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?” he added.

Fuck you.The nag mamatiger92 wants to try and intimidate a 20 year-old college student with a 6th grade whiny question yet gives Hillary a pass for supporting her husband that intimidated and used his position to rape a young, college intern in the White House.

No, shit for brains, she asked a 20 something basically why she gushes over Trump even though he’s doing the same shit Corbin. Read much?

Never given HC a free pass on anything. Not an HC fan. I challenge you to find where I’ve posted anything to the contrary.

Kerry Woods is a psychopath. He does not know the difference between right or wrong, truth or lie. He can make up a lie quicker than the average person can tell the truth.

He is bad news.

Good choice. A rattlesnake has more personality and is less likely to pick your pocket.
