In case you missed last week’s episode of our popular ‘Week In Review‘ program, I called for a renewed focus on the corrupt judges who enabled the ‘Murdaugh Murders’ crime and corruption saga – and who have enabled other scandals in South Carolina.
“We are still waiting for the accountability on that corruption side,” I said, specifically calling out circuit court judges Carmen Mullen and Perry Buckner. “A lot of these judges who were thick as thieves with the Murdaughs – we need to continue to keep the heat on that side of this investigation.”
Well, ask and you shall receive …
Less than forty-eight hours after our episode aired, we filed a report detailing the escalation of an ongoing federal probe into multiple South Carolina judges – an investigation which according to our sources has “made significant progress.”
That was just the beginning of an incredibly busy week at our media outlet, too … one which included news of another investigation into a prominent legislative leader (one who appoints judges in the Palmetto State).
Will the joint state/ federal probe of powerful attorney Todd Rutherford bear fruit? Countless politicos are watching it very closely … and planning for every eventuality.
Finally, I penned a lengthy article providing our audience with an update on the status of the abortion debate in South Carolina. Many (including me) suspected this issue would likely take a backseat to other issues in the aftermath of last week’s big state supreme court ruling … but boy were we wrong.
Turns out the debate state leaders wish would go away is coming back with a vengeance in 2024 …
