Minions or Heroes?

minions for leatherman

Friends of South Carolina,

Today, I don’t have time to write much, so this is short and to the point.

Below is a list of eleven Representatives.

Are they heroes for the people of South Carolina?

Are they minions of Leatherman and Harrell?

Who can tell?

I only ask, because they have not made a commitment to sustain the Governor’s veto of the I-95 Corridor Authority.

Those who are following this know the Authority will perhaps be the biggest growth in South Carolina government intervention in a generation.

But, if you need to know more, you can read the details by following this link.

Until they make a stand against the I-95 Corridor Authority, I’m counting them as minions!

These aren’t the only minions, but the following eleven are sometimes mistaken as heroes of the people.

Nine even scored a B on a popular conservative score card.

I want to make sure you are aware that they have yet to take a stand.

In my experience, that means they are planning to vote for the other side.

By refusing to take a stand to support the governor’s veto, they leave their allegiance in question.

Contact them and let them know they are making a big mistake!

Encourage them to stand and be counted as a representative of the people!

Be polite!  But be firm!

P.S.  Are the above listed Representatives the minions of Leatherman and Harrell?  They refuse to take a stand against the I-95 Corridor Authority!  Contact them today and tell them they are making a mistake.  They must take a stand and let their constituents know whose side they are on!  The people?  Leatherman and Harrell?  Who knows?

Update: Since posting this article on the evening of Jan 2 and sending the accompanying e-blast early morning Jan 3 I have received written commitments from four of the below listed representatives.  Mike Pitts, Ann Thayer, Don Bowen, and Roland Smith have all made written commitments to support the veto.  I have word of a verbal commitment from another, but verbal commitments from a politician… well, I don’t count them. –TB 1/4/12
