Local Governments Asking General Assembly to Obey the Law

Counties and municipalities throughout South Carolina are again asking the General Assembly to obey state law with respect to the local government fund in the state’s general fund budget.

State law Section 6-27-30 requires the General Assembly to put 4.5% of the previous year’s base general fund revenue into the local government fund in the upcoming fiscal year budget.

But, the General Assembly has not fully funded the local government fund since 2008 – in violation of state law.

Obamacare Nullification Fails, the Revenge of James L. Petigru

Somewhere James L. Petigru has a little smile on his face today as South Carolina’s latest attempt at nullification of a federal law went down in the S.C. Senate earlier this week.

Petigru, a 19th Century lawyer, legislator, S.C. attorney general and judge, was a leader of anti-nullification forces in South Carolina before the Civil War and critic of secession, yet a well-respected Charleston resident both before and after the war.

When South Carolina voted to secede from the Union in December 1860, Petigru uttered his most famous quote, calling the state “too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum.”

Vincent Sheheen Calls Out Chris Christie

Sen. Vincent Sheheen, the presumptive Democratic nominee to challenge Gov. Nikki Haley for the governor’s seat in the upcoming November general election, called out New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for hypocrisy.

Sheheen’s reasoning? The ad attacks Sheheen for taking a position, regarding federal dollars for Medicaid expansion, that Christie shares and has already accomplished in New Jersey.

Judge Early Facing High Noon Challenge Tuesday

“People have got to talk themselves into law and order before they do anything about it…” – Gary Cooper, High Noon

By Pat Shannan

In 1952, Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly starred in a Hollywood Classic where a single man faced a returning deadly group of criminals at High Noon and the whole town turned its back and refused to help.

At noon this Tuesday, 2/25/14, following fourteen years of frustrating litigation where evidence was never allowed to be presented publicly, two members of a group of judicial criminals involved in statewide public corruption are scheduled to face off with their protagonist in a court of law in Richland County Courthouse in Columbia, South Carolina.

But the indefatigable plaintiff, Jim Spencer, can never be sure just what “legal” sidetrack avenue of avoidance these legal manipulators will take next. Any mob that would kidnap a man’s 90 year-old mother and secret her in a state facility as ransom until he dropped his lawsuit cannot be predicted.
