Scheming and Scamming
The scheming and scamming continues in Berkeley County as the polls are about to open. Last night the BC Republican executive committee decided to take the prudent course of action, follow the law, and leave candidate Brian Adams on the ballot. Bonneau police “chief” Franco Fuda had filed a complaint about a clerical error on Adams’ paperwork. The vote was 23 to 10 to keep Adams on the ballot.
We love how some of the local media still refuse to give you details of the actual complaint. For example, WCSC News will only say the complaint, “…contained an allegation against Adams.” You have to ask yourself, why is WCSC trying to give the impression Adams did something terribly wrong instead of telling you he missed the block on the form to put in the date he graduated from high school? Because they have an agenda, as usual. That agenda does not include telling you the truth about anything having to do with BCSO.
Fuda committed an ethics violation by filing his complaint using the resources of the Town of Bonneau. Of course, when the town is run by relatives you don’t even give that a second though. Just like the campaign sign he has posted up on a fence owned by the town. Oh, and he had his wife notarize his documents to get into the election. That is a definite no-no. Any notary can tell you that. That is called a conflict of interest. Outlets like WCSC don’t think you need to know all that.
As we have pointed out many times before, the deceit and deception run deep in Berkeley County and many in the local media are complicit.
It seems certain candidates have also had a lot of campaign signs stolen during this campaign. Curiously, some of those signs have now reappeared and they have shown up way too close to the polling places. The acts of sabotage are continuing right up until the time polls open. We think the victim candidates should treat those signs like a crime scene - secure them and have them fingerprinted. Let’s see what that turns up.
We can’t wait to see how this turns out.
