STATE TREASURER’S BROTHER SHILLS FOR TRIAL LAWYER VOTES IN LOCAL HOUSE RACE
FITSNews – October 24, 2007 – We’ve known that Dorchester County was a political cesspool ever since the Beattygate scandal rocked South Carolina politics earlier this year, but the corrupt little Lowcountry clique of State Treasurer Converse Chellis and former House Majority Leader Annette Young is at it again. This time the Dorchester Mob Squad is pressuring a bunch of local trial lawyers to support their hand-picked State House candidate, realtor Jenny Horne, saying that their “livelihoods are at stake.”
In an e-mail to the Dorchester Bar Association obtained exclusively by FITSNews, Treasurer Chellis’ brother James, who is angling to receive a S.C. Circuit Court judgeship per the Beattygate scandal, tells his lawyer buddies to “Pledge your support to Jenny Horne … Pledge that you will ask your clients and friends to vote for her! Please. Our livelihoods are at stake. Let me here from you that you will undertake these pledges.”
Their livelihoods are at stake? Jeez. Aside from using the ostensibly non-political local bar association to spread their political messages, God forbid that a bunch of rich, Democrat-leaning trial lawyers backed by a corrupt syndicate of rich, Democrat-leaning politicians have to miss a friggin’ meal, or at least have to start eating farmed caviar as opposed to the more expensive naturally-occuring variety.
Horne is facing former State Rep. Heyward Hutson for the S.C. State House seat formerly held by the original Sock Puppet Converse Chellis himself, with voters scheduled to go to the polls this coming Tuesday, October 30.
