Andre Bauer: Making Moves?

FORMER LITE GOV MULLING ANOTHER CAMPAIGN? Former two-term S.C. lieutenant governor Andre Bauer came up short in his bid for governor in 2010 … and also in his bid for the U.S. Congress in 2012. Many believed his political career was over after those defeats … Is it, though? Bauer’s…


Former two-term S.C. lieutenant governor Andre Bauer came up short in his bid for governor in 2010 … and also in his bid for the U.S. Congress in 2012.

Many believed his political career was over after those defeats …

Is it, though?

Bauer’s website – – appears to be prepped for an upcoming campaign.  In fact, the newly-designed website’s reference to Bauer being “born in the Holy City of Charleston, South Carolina” could signify his intention to compete in this year’s “Republican” primary election for the South Carolina first congressional district.

That seat is currently held by former S.C. governor Mark Sanford – who won it in a special election in 2013 (and then promptly surrendered it to the “Republican” leadership in Washington, D.C.).

The notorious “Luv Gov” – whose insufferable personal life has continued to rear its ugly head since he won the seat – has already drawn one challenger, S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne of Dorchester County, S.C.

Will Bauer make it two? 

Bauer was in a position to win the race for South Carolina’s seventh congressional district four years ago, but a late endorsement by S.C. governor Nikki Haley swung the race in favor of fiscally liberal Horry County politician Tom Rice.

Rice also quickly surrendered his seat to the “Republican” establishment.

This website was exceedingly harsh on Bauer during his tenure as lieutenant governor.  Perhaps unfairly so.  In recent years, however, we’ve come to respect him as an adept businessman and quick study when it comes to policy issues.

He’ll need to apply both of those skills in the event he wants to pull off a successful return to the political arena.

fits, you get this chance to be important every four years, as of today, you could give Barnie Frank lessons on how to blow it.

The Colonel (R) February 16, 2016 at 8:51 pm

I’m not sure who the bigger joke is, Andre “stray cats” Bauer, Jenny “Jefferson Davis” Horne or Mark “the luv gov” Sanford. If we have to have one off them, I’d keep Marky Mark.

Mike at the Beach February 17, 2016 at 12:08 am

Mark’s definitely the tallest midget in that circus…not much choice other than to hang on to him until a sane person decides to run against him. Hasn’t happened yet.

Nick Theodore…empty grinning suit, loser
Ken Ard….Ethics violator, criminal loser
Bob Peeler…adulterer, home wrecker, amoral, unethical loser

Why did you leave out racist country club, bandwagon Trumpster, Henry McMaster?

Lady Di February 17, 2016 at 8:44 am

There are so many cretins who’ve been Lt. Gov, could not remember all. You are correct with your 3 additions. Thanks

Bible Thumper February 17, 2016 at 10:04 am

It is interesting that the last eleven Lt. governors have not become governors. John West was the last in 1971.

Don’t forget drunk when talking about Bauer. What was his blood alcohol level when the infamous plane crash occurred?

Cube Warrior February 17, 2016 at 3:20 pm

Don’t forget their Chiefs of Staff either. Mark Plowden (McMaster’s CoS) got a DUI last year, didn’t lose his job, and is still collecting a six figure government paycheck.

shifty henry February 22, 2016 at 6:34 pm

‘infamous plane crash occurred?’ — You didn’t hear it from me: Andre forgot to release the hand brake …..

You 3 idiots(Idioduncr,ColFlake and Tazpuss) couldn’t pick the right candidate in an election if Jesus told ya who to vote for.At least Bush was honest and raised his hand that he is a Democrat.

You need to stop harassing these people, they have done nothing wrong.

Andre is straight. I will diss him all day long for his bad deeds, but it’s just stupid to call him a faggot.

Buffalo Bill February 17, 2016 at 12:02 pm

Is he straight because when he’s doing gay sex on you, you think of yourself as a girl?

Bible Thumper February 17, 2016 at 7:06 am

Facts are that Bauer’s and Gresham Barrett’s association with Will Folks lies about Haley have destroyed all three’s political careers. You can cheat on your wife and lie about it like Sanford, but you can’t be part of a conspiracy to accuse a woman of adultery.

By the way, Andre, how did that Huckaby endorsement work out?

just a fact February 17, 2016 at 7:29 am

Haley never proved what Will said was false.Haley was just lucky Folks is apparently despised by most or her political life would have ended.

Bible Thumper February 17, 2016 at 7:36 am

When those accusations surfaced, Haley’s career blasted off. She didn’t even have to disprove them. As long as she is a victim, it works in her favor.

The only place Haley’s detractors can be heard are Fitsnews and liberal media.

just a fact February 17, 2016 at 8:22 am

Hate to tell ya but I attended two political fundraisers yesterday in south Florida and she is NOT well liked and is unacceptable as a vp candidate,In Tallahassee and Pensacola today and will report back to ya.

Bible Thumper February 17, 2016 at 8:40 am

Who is acceptable?

That third-rate carnival barker doesn’t have a prayer against Horne. First he’s is from Charleston, then he’s from Newberry (Senate seat), then back to Charleston, then Myrtle Beach, and now back to Charleston, flipping houses like a madman. He has no brain, no class, and no future in politics.

Buzz Martin February 17, 2016 at 11:21 am

Oh, give him some credit. He also flips failing furniture stores.

tomstickler February 17, 2016 at 9:43 am

No one challenging Sanford in the Republican primary has the chance of a snowball in global-warming-Hell unless they are also opposed to seismic testing and drilling for oil and gas off the South Carolina coast. Sanford has seen the light on this issue, as his constituents have made clear.

Buzz Martin February 17, 2016 at 11:16 am

I would not hit a hog in the ass with either on of those guys. Screw whether or not Bauer has become Will’s kind of “conservative,” or whether or not he’s an astute businessman He’s a crass, self-serving, manipulative, underhanded, crooked, corrupt P.O.S. And a cheap one, too. Having worked on his behalf, with/for his abysmally dishonest and borderline evil close business and political associate, convicted felon dirty trickster Jay Specter, I know whereof I speak.

The obsession with absolute fidelity to unrealistic and unattainable “libertarian” values is what keeps this site from truly living up to its potential. It’s at its best when it exposes true corruption, graft, nepotism. and malfeasance in office — no matter what kind of ideological or partisan bullshit the perps profess to follow.

Guest February 17, 2016 at 11:26 am

Bauer having anything to do with Boz should give everyone a good reason to conclude Bauet is not fit for public service, in my opinion.

Buzz Martin February 18, 2016 at 10:46 pm

And there you have it. lol

SNAPcop February 25, 2016 at 8:53 am

Buz Martin. There you go again. Just because you must be low on benefits you are taking it on Andre Bauer. Like Donald Trump says let’s make American great again! It is people like Andre Bauer that will help Donald Trump do that. Not low life good for nothing scum bags like you and your buddy.

CorruptionInColumbia February 17, 2016 at 12:00 pm

What is this, “Whack-a-Mole”, or as Jim Lewis would probably call it, “Whack-a-Roach”? These slimeballs mercifully disappear, then resurface a few years later.

Andre is crooked as a snake. I understand that when he had his airplane crash, ruled pilot error by the FAA, he tried to sue the owner of the plane for his injuries. He is not well liked in parts of Newberry County because of the shameless manufactured allegations he helped push on a popular local Magistrate so one of Andre’s Merry Men could take that office over.

That said, I would almost be tempted to vote him over Cryin, Snot-blowing, Mark or Lying, Weeping, Jenny. At least he’d be a fresh crook in that seat until the next “choice” between a turd and a piece of shit comes along in two more years.

All that said, if I lived in the First Congressional District, I would be tempted to petition the government to delete that seat due to a chronic lack of viable candidates running for it.

Yeah, I know, and you are right. I have no room to talk since Joe Wilson is the “best” we’ve been able to do in forever. Maybe I need to start that petition.

Cbb February 17, 2016 at 1:01 pm

Bauer got three speeding tickets while lt governor-the last one he was doing over 100 mph in I 77. The hubris he showed by believing that he was exempt from the laws that the rest of us must abide by should disqualify him from any other public office.

Lone Ranger February 17, 2016 at 7:01 pm

Ummmmm…Kemosabe…let’s see now…in this corner we have
Sure-I-Left-My-Wife-And-Four-Sons-Mark Sanford himself

Lied through his RINO teeth about it of course and proved
himself to be just ANOTHER libertarian Lilliputian elf

And in this corner we have Jenny-Sure-I’ll-Sell-My-Grandma’s-Jugular-For-An-Office-Horne waxing hypocrite on the flag

Who if the truth be known should go ahead and light up two
big batons and find the devil himself and go play…tag

And in this corner we have Andre-Sure-I-Keep-ILLEGAL-Video-Poker-Machines-In-My-Warehouses-Bauer, too

Who like Lexington County’s almost “new” and old sheriffs
and Raghead wants to give voters a real good you know…

Finally in this corner we have the First District’s voters
who if corn were an enema would make very good shuckers

Because we KNOW they no doubt elected all of the above or
wanted to and make perpetual all-day dumb-azz suckers !!!

Squishy123 February 17, 2016 at 9:04 pm

Of the three, Sanford is the least objectionable.

Rebel Bill February 18, 2016 at 12:26 pm

Anyone but that lying sellout cuckservative bitch Jenny Horne.
