CANDICE LIVELY FILES PAPERWORK …

The good ol’ boy network in Lexington County, S.C. is facing a formidable challenge from a fresh-faced reformer with a proven track record of locking up bad guys – and protecting children.

Candice Lively filed paperwork this week to become the next solicitor of the Palmetto State’s eleventh judicial circuit.  That’s the post currently held by Donnie Myers – who recently announced his decision to step down.

Lively is running against one of Myers’ former subordinates, Rick Hubbard – who recently resigned his post in the office of S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson to campaign for the office.  Hubbard is reportedly favored by the local political establishment, but Lively seems to be the one entering the race with more grassroots support.

“Candice is a very good prosecutor and has a fantastic track record,” one source close to the race told us.

That’s accurate … prior to taking over the reins at the University of South Carolina’s Children’s Law Center, Lively was a prosecutor in the state’s fifteenth judicial circuit.  There she gained extensive experience working with current S.C. Senator Greg Hembree.

Can Lively garner enough support to beat back the local status quo?

“My guess is she will do well with young voters, women and anti-establishment voters,” one Lexington County elected official told us.

We concur …

Lively’s pitch?  Her prosecutorial background – and her extensive experience training law enforcement officers in being more effective advocates for children.

“She’s trained over 700 law enforcement in that field across the state,” one child advocate told us.

“Nobody gets rich in child welfare and she really does try to get people to understand abuse investigations and how to better protect them,” one Lowcountry advocate told us.

“I am excited to use my experience and passion to be a leader and serve our community,” Lively said in filing her paperwork.

The eleventh circuit includes Edgefield, Lexington, McCormick and Saluda counties.  Myers was first elected to the post in 1976.

Mrs. At-the-beach is at peace with my analysis of Ms. Lively, primarily because she knows the odds of her deciding to run off with me are approximately 0.0%.

Hopefully, she will continue the clean up of Lexington County and their sick, immoral and unethical elected officials, their sycophants and associates. Some of them remain carrying on their immorality, unethical and illegal activity some are gone, some remain.
No one associated with Myers should be elected.

Oh shit! With that schnozz, Ted probably has a very unfair advantage with the ladies. I can see going down on a chick and having a nose like that, you could stimulate two places at once and drive her absolutely crazy.

Of course, he’d have to be careful not to do that if he had a bad cold or sinus infection. Otherwise, in some states, he might wind up being charged with “boogery”.

You can read the entire article in the photo of your link and, of course, it’s nonsense. Nowhere in the article does NE say they talked to anyone who witnessed or had sex with Cruz. The article admits Cruz is the victim of a “dirty tricks” attempt by an opposition campaign. All their anonymous sources are connected to an “opposition campaign”.

Never does NE claim the allegations are true or that they have any evidence. NE even calls it “rumors”. Several of the phases used are reminiscent of Fitsnews stories about Rubio. Ie. “Where there is smoke there’s fire”.

These stories always go over the top whether it’s Folks/Haley, Rubio/love child, or now Cruz.

Folks/Haley. – adults even kids in the 21st century don’t have sex in cars, especially, parked in a parking lot. There are too many more convenient places.

Rubio – There are too many ways to prevent a pregnancy, especially for adults and it is too difficult to keep secret. (John Edwards) There are many ways to confirm it with DNA, phone records, email, everyone carrying cameras and surveillance cameras at businesses.

Cruz – Is it believable that Cruz would have sex in a closet at a state political convetion? Sounds juicy, but is that realistic? May have happened in John Kennedy’s time, but the the media won’t keep those secrets now. Does Cruz seem like a guy that engages in risky behavior?

We live in a world where their are hardly any secrets anymore. Is it possible that a presidential candidate could have five affairs and no one comes forward with any evidence? Yet, rumors and lies can spead at the speed of light.

What kind of evidence are we talking about? Used condoms or text messages?

Is there anything in the article other than anonymous hearsay rumors? No one said they had an affair or witnessed it or even heard directly from a witness or heard directly from someone who heard directly form a witness or someone who heard directly from someone who heard directly from someone who heard directly form a witness.

Every source for the article is connected with an opposition campaign and anonymous. Nor does NE claim that they verified any of the rumors.

This is typical of the Trump campaign. If you’re going to tell a lie, make it a doosy. “Rubio is a homosexual womanizer.” It’s got to be YUGE. Otherwise people will ask Trump about his cheating with Marla Maples on his first marriage.

Supposedly the NE has had 5 P.I.’s on it, but I agree no evidence…yet

Let’s keep in mind that the N.E. did expose John Edwards…and they are obviously aware of the Gawker suit. Something tells me that didn’t do this lightly, even if they are the N.E.

Bible Thumper March 25, 2016 at 3:01 pm

Read the article again. NE never accuses or offers any evidence an affair. They admit in the article, that it is an opposition “dirty tricks” effort. There is nothing NE would be libel for.

TroubleBaby March 25, 2016 at 3:10 pm

Ok, stepping away from the NE article for a moment…what about he $500,000 transfer to Fiorina’s campaign? Has there ever been an explanation for that?

If it’s opposition “dirty tricks”, how the heck does Katrina Pierson’s name get dropped- yet she denied it? (assuming it’s Trump, are you claiming it’s Hilliary otherwise?)

Bible Thumper March 25, 2016 at 4:04 pm

I don’t think it is to Hillary’s advantage to hurt Cruz at this time. Maybe a false flag to implicate Trump. Very unlikely.

This seems to fit Trump’s personality and mode of operandi. The simplest explainations are usually true. Probably a pro Trump PAC that Trump can’t officially coordinate with is responsible. I’m sure Trump has several layers of deniability.

Oh dear, the National Enquirer has come out with a story claiming evidence of multiple sexual trysts by presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz.

Worse yet for the Cruz camp, the framework within the article is structurally very concerning:

Even Jesus is going to have a hard time forgiving him. Can you imagine him getting up to heaven?

Jesus: “Really dude? Really?!?!? I’m not letting you in, stay outside.”
Cruz: “But my Father said I was destined to be here!”
Jesus: “Your father’s a kook.”
