Greenville County GOP Chair, Jeff Davis, introduced Orangeburg Special Prosecutor David Pascoe (D) at last night’s Greenville County GOP business meeting.
Pascoe is best known in the state for his efforts in getting convictions against campaign consultant Richard Quinn and his son Richard Quinn Jr.
At the business meeting, Jeff Davis mentioned Davis’ censure by the state GOP party. He also made claims that the SCGOP used its data list as collateralization for loans applied for by the SCGOP.
At the meeting, Pascoe named names, and took no prisoners.
Key targets included: Republican Representative G. Murrell Smith, Jr. of Sumter County, Horry County Senator Luke Rankin, The JMSC, The Savanah River Settlement, and S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson.
“We need to clean up our own house,” said Pascoe. “Don’t hate the player. Hate the game,” he added.
His comments caused a backlash from establishment Republicans at the State House in Columbia, S.C.
Sources in Columbia informed us that Murrell Smith had a visceral reaction to being singled out in a video clip where $325,000 was funneled from the state to a charity.
A video of Smith was posted with his verbal response to questions about funding a private plane for Senator Todd Rutherford (D) (Also on the JMSC).
