We recently received a note from a reader expressing sadness that Ricky Driggers did not win the primary election for sheriff in Berkeley County. The reader tells us Driggers wouldn’t have made a good sheriff given all of his issues, but it would have been fun to see him take the primary, then get indicted by the feds and watch the county have to go through the election process all over again. Some folks are apparently gluttons for punishment.
As it stands now the election is down to two candidates - the Democrat Anthony Smalls and the winner of the Republican run-off, Duane Lewis. Given what we know about Lewis and his cronies, we have to go with the Democrat on this one. Unfortunately, this is Berkeley County we are talking about and a black Democrat has no chance of winning. Trust us on this, the shenanigans are not yet over.
In addition to his backing from the disgraced former sheriff, Lewis was also backed by every other ethically challenged Republican candidate. Chief Fuda of the speed trap fiefdom of Bonneau had this to say after the primary.
Fuda likes to say he “did the right thing” in attempting to disqualify a fellow candidate for a clerical error on a filing document. Too bad he committed an ethical breach by using the resources of the Town of Bonneau to do so. He also did not mind committing ethics violations when he plastered his campaign signs on property owned by the Town of Bonneau.
Fuda, like most of the ethically and morally challenged criminals featured in these pages turns to blaming others for his actions. Then he invokes God.
Maybe God can help him out of the jam created by his own unethical actions. Need some proof of those violations? Here ya go.
We find it interesting that a man who wants others to live by the letter of the law is not willing to do so himself. But really, what would you expect from a guy who is intimidated by fake bull testicles?
