INIMITABLE EX-LAWMAKER SEEKING STATE SENATE SEAT HE HELD FOR TWENTY YEARS

Former S.C. Senator Robert Ford – run out of office three years ago (and subsequently indicted on ethics charges) – is running for his old State Senate seat.  Ford, who received five years of probation for his various offensives, filed this week as a Democratic candidate for S.C. Senate District 42 (map here).

That seat has been held since October 2013 by Marlon Kimpson, a wealthy trial lawyer from Charleston, S.C. who is seeking reelection.  Kimpson’s claim to fame so far?  Pushing a host of anti-second amendment bills.

Fortunately, those bills are being blocked by S.C. Senator Larry Martin.

Ford lost his job in 2013 after it was revealed that he used campaign funds for personal purposes (including paying his gym membership).  He was also accused of writing checks to himself directly from his campaign – and illegally falsifying his campaign finance records as part of a deliberate effort to deceive investigators and evade accountability for his actions.

The most embarrassing revelations?   That Ford used campaign money to buy male enhancement pills – and pornography.

Ford referred to the case against him as a “public lynching.” He also pointed out (correctly, we might add) that far more egregious offenses had been committed in office by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – yet her offenses which were whitewashed by her fellow “Republicans” in the S.C. House of Representatives in 2012.

Hard to argue that point …

Mayor Berry’s crime was one shared by your last three Presidents.

GOP better damn well check there history pulling these type stunts.

Remember when Teddy Roosevelt won all the primaries and had his nomination taken away at the convention??? Remember GOP Assholes???

Let me refresh the GOP crooks memories.

Roosevelt ran a 3rd Party Bull Moose campaign.

Democrat Woodrow Wilson got elected.

He won World War 1 then had to deal with a majority hostile GOP Congress which rejected his League of Nations. That freed Germany to rebuild it’s military and allowed Japan to build its new Navy. Thus, directly causing World War 2!!!

Obviously some in the GOP are either too stupid to remember history, or willing to ignore the facts in order to put money in their greedy pockets. Regardless of how much damage they do to the GOP, our Nation or the world in general.

I liked the smart side of him… he was pro-school choice. He might even be pro-second amendment!

Wonder if his brother-in-law Robert Mugabe will hook him up with another lapel pin?
