Social Media Fun: Senator Paul Campbell Edition

Boys and their … toys?

Remember Paul Campbell?  He’s the Lowcountry state senator who got off on charges of driving under the influence and lying to police officers in connection with this November 2017 incident.

Prior to that, Campbell – chairman of the Senate “ethics” committee – was best known for double-dipping as a lawmaker and as chief executive officer of the scandal-scarred Charleston County Aviation Authority (CCAA).

He’s about to be known for something else …

Campbell had an interesting weekend on social media when someone with access to his Facebook account posted – and then deleted – an article from Men’s Health magazine about the Tenuto, a wearable male vibrator.

The headline of the story?  “Why Men Are Buying Vibrators – and Keeping Them for Themselves.”

Ummmm ….

Campbell’s post drew an interesting response from one reader, who asked the state senator whether his male vibrator used “AAA batteries” or if it was “rechargeable.”

Let’s put a pin in that one until the S.C. Senate District 44 debate in two years, shall we?

“I have no idea where this came from,” someone responding from Campbell’s account replied. “Certainly it did not come from me.”

“Must be another Paul Campbell somewhere,” the individual responding from Campbell’s account added.

Too funny …

Campbell’s post eventually drew some helpful suggestions from readers …

“Try to delete it,” one suggested.

“Change your password,” another chimed in.

Too funny …

“That old ‘wasn’t me’ excuse might’ve gotten him out of a drunk driving ticket but can’t really save him here,” one of Campbell’s constituents told us.

Actually, we would be shocked to discover that Campbell posted this article himself.  People’s Facebook accounts get hacked all the time.  Either way, though, it’s hilarious.
