A new social media group has formed in opposition to S.C. Rep. Todd Rutherford – the ranking Democrat in the S.C. House of Representatives (and a prominent Midlands, S.C. attorney).
The group’s beef? Rutherford’s legal advocacy on behalf of a student at Spring Valley High School who was involved in last week’s controversial arrest of a female black student at the school.
According to the group, Rutherford is “perpetuating a fraud” and “using his political influence to solicit funds unlawfully, while in office.”
The group urges its members – of which there were 237 as of this writing – to report Rutherford to the S.C. State Ethics Commission (SCSEC) and the South Carolina State Bar Association.
Rutherford said the criticism was “ridiculous” and “completely unfounded.”
“People are upset over this case, I understand that, so they are seeking to attack me and anyone connected to the girl,” he told us.
Wonder how much of Rutherford fortune has been at the expense of South Carolina tax payers?
“…they are seeking to attack me and anyone connected to the girl”. Gee, never heard that one before. When are people going to learn that this defense just exposes the fact that they have been exposed. Come up with a better defense.
Todd has a pebble in his wallet, maybe?
So will this same group be going after Leon Lott too?
/// According to the group, Rutherford is “perpetuating a fraud” and “using his political influence to solicit funds unlawfully, while in office.” ///
So. He’s being accused of being a typical member of the South Carolina Legislature, then?
More like a typical lawyer. Unless there is some rule that Todd can’t practice law while serving in the legislature, I don’t see where that has much to do with anything. What I’m picking up is they are po’ed that he set up a gofund me acct and that he said bad things about Fields.
Damn.That sounds a lot like what TSN, you and Wren said about Mark Kelley?
How did that work out for ya’ll?
Quit bending over for Rutherford.
So will the gofundme money be used to pay her legal fees??
“Report Rutherford to the State Ethics Commission.”. Go ahead, no problems , no actions ,no results from the State Ethics Commission… A joke ..
I’m actually THRILLED that Rutherford is openly showing who, and what, the Democrat Party stands for…
And doesn’t FITS break his neck to tell us how he “Likes” Rutherford???…his rare judgement of Rutherford, answers the question…as it does for ANY Democrat mentioned by FITS…
Need to speak with you as soon as possible. Quit hiding who, where, and what you are. You have no problem responding to just about anybody who responds to you on here, so you shouldn’t have any problems responding to my office. Thank you for your cooperation.
Damn.Practicing law without a law licence. A felony.
Ever wonder why that call it “practicing” instead of “playing” or “doing”?
I have my Seinfeld moments.
Karma is out there waiting for this Cockroach crawl under its shoe
Definitely is “Misconduct in Office” and AG Wilson should indict Rutherford.
Mr. Rutherford is South Carolina’s greatest human rights leader. Why didn’t they arrest that bunch of hooligans who demonstrated for that asshole cop at Spring Valley High School? That incident disrupted the entire school.
Because they were mostly middle-class whites is my guess. The scions of Spring Valley.
If you took the time to look at the footage of the protest, you would see that the crowd was diverse.
You are delusional! The only thing Mr. Rutherford is worried about is lining his greedy pockets. As an attorney he is supposed to uphold the law, not take on every black case that has media attention. Black women climbs a pole, Rutherford. Black student in Lexington Stabs and kills a Black DFHS student and Rutherford tries to get him off on stand your ground. Basketball Seniors screwing underage girls so Rutherford gets the legal age of consent changed so his star black athletes get off. Rutherford makes up lies about orphan student to gain sympathy for belligerent student at SVHS, cop looses job Rutherford starts GOFUNDME account which rewards belligerent students and ramps up thuggery in schools diminishing teachers ability to have authority. The hooligan is Rutherford and the parents that rallied around there belligerent children. VOTE him out, suspend him from SC State House.
Attorney Rutherford does not need to line his pockets, sir, he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth. Indeed, you are a pathological liar. Of that, there is no doubt.
People that have money tend to thirst for even more Money. Todd plans on running for Governor and thinks that being the black man’s champion will ensure the black vote shows up on election day.
Never let a political opportunity go to waste.
Especially when there is money to be made.
Ol Scar Head is trying to be another Al Sharpton. Just another greedy shyster.
