In with the new

Out with the old!  In with the new! Senator Nikki Setzler has been “serving” in the South Carolina Senate since 1977.

His Superfluous Excellency

Power corrupts.  And absolute power corrupts absolutely. South Carolina State Senate president pro tempore Glenn McConnell demonstrates this little maxim quite well.
