HOUSE JUDICIARY CHAIRMAN BLASTS OUTGOING SENATOR FOR WHINING ABOUT UN-PASSED LEGISLATION
We’ve always said the real anger under the S.C. State House dome wasn’t between “Republicans” and Democrats – they are generally in agreement on growing government – it’s between Representatives and Senators.
Lawmakers love to blast each other for not “getting stuff done,” although let’s be honest: The less accomplished by state government, the better.
This week there’s a big spat between outgoing liberal Senator Ray Cleary and the chairman of the S.C. House of Representatives’ powerful judiciary committee, Greg Delleney. The drama began when Cleary sent Delleney an angry letter saying he was “stymied” at the House’s failure to pass one of his bills – a piece of legislation aiming to provide immunity to physicians providing free (i.e. government-subsidized) health services.
Delleney responded, saying he, too, was “stymied.” As were other members of his committee, apparently (seems we’ve got an epidemic of people being “stymied” going on here).
“Much of my committee is ‘stymied’ by the fifty pieces of legislation that we reported out of the House Judiciary Committee and then subsequently passed by the entire House of Representatives which have yet to receive final consideration by the Senate,” Delleney wrote.
Delleney added that he was further stymied “by the idea that a single bill could be so essential to you that you are willing to turn a blind eye to the diligent work my Committee has done over the past year.”
Here’s the exchange …

What about the two Constitutional Carry bills, the better of which was the House version, that were in play last year? Lying Jay Lucas promised gun rights proponents that he would have it brought to the floor in the remaining days of the Legislative session, yet he conveniently kept adjourning early in those days, ignoring his promise.
Are you familiar with Palmetto Gun Rights? They are based in Lexington.
I was getting regular e-mails from them last year about this. I haven’t been able to access that e-mail account from this phone so I don’t know if they’re still active or not.
They are. They sent a notice about a Constitutional carry bill and a request for a donation. Don’t want to fund if they are just looking for pocket money on the cocktail party circuit.
They seem legit. Not in a position to contribute a lot. I realize it takes money to run any organization but I so tired of the NRA and their “crisis of the day”, kind of like a TV televangelist. Each week, the NRA had a new crisis and the need for moar money from you. I think this group is more legit than the NRA.
FWIW, I do call when I get an alert and they ask us to call our elected officials.
Ummmmm….Kemosabe…let’s see now…Deleney voted NOT to rip down the flag of patriots and Cleary gutlessly voted to rip it down
And just like almost-competent General George Armstrong Custer…soon spineless Cleary and his fellow cowards will NOT be around !!!
The voter’s spoke with Trump here…lawmakers better wise up the people have had enough of these selfserving assholes.
Cleary has been nothing but a Leatherman Butt Boi for a long time now. Glad to see his bankrupt ass going home.
“As the Petty World turns”
SC’s Republican Lawmakers refuse to legalize Sodomy! God Nose those poor House and Senate Pages are butt sore enough as it is…
