“Please don’t insult us liberals by including Leatherman among our ranks …”

RE: FLORENCE, SUMTER RANK AMONG POOREST US METRO AREAS

Dear Editor:

The facts presented in your article are indisputable.  However, your characterization of Senate president Hugh Leatherman as “liberal” is quite the stretch.  Senator Leatherman is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican who could never remotely be considered “liberal” by today’s standards.

Please don’t insult us liberals by including Leatherman among our ranks.

Thank you,

Kim Massengill
Florence, S.C.

Kim: Thanks for submitting this letter.  Personally, I believe a guy who presides over the obscene expansion of government taxingborrowing and spending – yet fails miserably to improve outcomes for taxpayers or citizens – is a “liberal.”  You are correct on one point, though.  By current South Carolina standards he is indeed a “dyed-in-the-wool Republican.”  Oh well, glad to have your input!  Look forward to more letters from you in the future.
