What's wrong with South Carolina

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2010 at 4:24 PM

No local connection, just yuks. A page listing the burgeoning scandals besetting the Republican Party of South Carolina. It's not just about walks on the Appalachian Trail or the uncivil Bro. Joe Wilson. Oh no.

The latest is a delicious scandal involving the Republican candidate for state education supervisor who has confirmed some romantic leaked e-mails to her came from the Republican comptroller, Richard Eckstrom. She's a divorcee. He's married, but separated. He's also a previously noted lech.

In 1997, he acknowledged he stood "awkwardly close" to a female staff member but denied charges by the woman that he tried to kiss and embrace her. The staffer sued Eckstrom, and the state settled the lawsuit for $57,500 in taxpayer money.

And be sure to catch the former Republican state rep. and assistant attorney general caught in a cemetery with a stripper, Viagra and sex toys.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
