Sources: Ports Paying Tens Of Thousands To Neo-Confederate Consultant

CONTROVERSIAL CONTRACTS COME TO LIGHT AMID ONGOING CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION The S.C.

The S.C. State Ports Authority (SCSPA) is reportedly paying tens of thousands of dollars each year to the neo-Confederate political consulting empire of “Republican” advisor Richard Quinn.  Oh, and this money has been flowing to the firm while Quinn’s son – S.C. Rep. Rick Quinn – has supported spending hundreds of millions of dollars on questionable port expenses.

This revelation – part of a major, multi-agency public corruption investigation reportedly being conducted by a mainstream media outlet – comes to light as the port is facing criticism on multiple fronts.  The agency’s latest boneheaded move?  A controversial decision to name a proposed $700 million terminal after powerful S.C. Senate president Hugh Leatherman, whose support is essential for the terminal to secure taxpayer funding it needs.

The news also comes as a joint-federal state probe continues its investigation into alleged public corruption by state lawmakers – and as multiple media outlets are delving into how lawmakers profit off of their positions of public trust.

Exact amounts paid to “the Quinndom” weren’t immediately available – and officials at the ports weren’t talking – but a source familiar with a recent television advertising campaign confirmed the payments.  Not only that, the source told us the monthly retainers were only a part of the payoff – which is said to include commissions on advertising and additional payments for “special projects.”

This website will be filing a freedom of information act (FOIA) request this week in an effort to determine how much money has been paid.

Stay tuned …

You Democrats think if you can re-fight the Civil War, it’ll change the fact that you were the Slave owners, and a Republican outed your party for who you are…

You lost in 1865…and you are still the same Racists you were then except now you hate white people because pandering to Blacks feeds your political greed, and keeps you in power….

You were on the wrong side of history…and you’re on the wrong side of the present…(see Obama and Hillary)…

The Buzzman October 22, 2015 at 1:40 pm

Now suddenly those who fought the civil war are “you people” to you.

You being the same asshole who once (wrongly) castigated me for being a “self-loathing Southerner”, just because I said Mississippi burning was a good movie with a good message.

TARevolution October 22, 2015 at 2:44 pm

WTF…you talking about…Fool??…

Anyway: EVERY Confederate was a Democrat. The Democrat Party was the party of Slavery and race hate in 1865. And it still is today…

Why do you run from who and what you are? You’re obviously a homosexual with a scat fetish. Embrace it. Go find another homosexual to defecate on your penis. It’ll make you feel whole again.

How much you think they’re paying to the Palladian Group, K-Flo’s outfit? As a former SPA Board Member, she surely is on this gravy train, especially if the Quinn’s are.

You should be. She looked like a damn fool. And Cummings was all mixed up, and looked stupid after Gowdy got through with that idiot and liar…

The Ports Authority uses law firms as their conduits for cash. These firms pay marketing bills, travel bills, lobbyist bills and “meeting” bills (fancy parties…and I mean fancy).

BTW, So does USC. This is why USC does not list lawyers on their transparency page.

Follow the money, especially if these organizations are paying huge sums of money to the lawyers.

Using lawyers to launder or hide money seems to be an effective tactic, they are also shielded by “attorney-client” privileges.

I really would like to know how come Rick Quinn gets all these plum jobs? He has no real talent except to get appointed to things. Several of his “ideas” have had questionable results for political and commercial clients. What gives?
