Report: South Carolina Governor to be indicted on tax fraud charges
Well, this is out of left field: According to the Palmetto Public Record, the Governor of South Carolina will soon be indicted by the Department of Justice for tax fraud. While Haley generally keeps a low profile, she’s without question one of the GOP’s rising stars, and has been mentioned both by Republican strategists and Mitt Romney himself as a possible running mate. Details of the tax fraud allegations are still being put together, but they supposedly involve a Sikh temple run by Haley’s father, unpaid contractors hired to build said temple, and the possibility that the unpaid money made its way into Haley’s campaign coffers. But all that’s unconfirmed at this point. Stay tuned on this one.  source

I’m having a hard time being funny about this when mysterious forces bigger than you are shoving you around.
Frustrated Carolinas resident Frederick Berlinger • Discussing learning that his residence, where he’s lived for 15 years, is not actually in North Carolina but South Carolina. The new changes are the result of modern surveyors redrawing the lines using modern tools and correcting minor errors in the original maps that stood for centuries. The changes affect the owners of 93 properties along the North Carolina/South Carolina border, some of whom are gas stations that could find the fireworks they sell illegal and the gas they sell suddenly more expensive to buy. Sucks to be them.

Anonymous: According to a recent poll conducted by Winthrop University, the above percentage of adult residents of South Carolina couldn’t name the current Vice President of the United States. In fact, 3% of those polled claimed Dick Cheney was still roaming the halls of the White House. Sounds like Joe Biden has some work to do on his name recognition, no?

South Carolina AG sues Justice Department over voter ID law

  • then The U.S. Justice Department blocked enforcement of a new law in South Carolina, which would have required government issued photo identification in order to vote at one’s polling place; Justice says the law would have inordinately disenfranchised minority voters.
  • now The attorney general of South Carolina, Alan Wilson, has sued the Justice Department, hoping to get it overturned. The Republican Party has supported the law as anti-voter fraud, with many Democrats opposed, saying it amounts to voter suppression. source

Speaker Gingrich had a good week. It was not a great week for me. We spent a lot of time talking about tax returns and the changing result in Iowa.
Mitt Romney • Discussing his loss in South Carolina and revealing that he would finally release his tax forms after much goading. His dad, George, famously released his own tax returns when he ran for president in 1968. “I’m not going back to my dad’s year,” Mitt said, but he would (on Tuesday) release his 2010 return and an estimate of his 2011 taxes. We will not be happy until he tells us where his money pit issource (viafollow)
