I swear, who needs soap operas when you have the GOP? You’ll remember, when last we visited, Robin Smith had decided not to endorse Chip “I love parodies about Negros” Saltsman for chair of the national party and had instead thrown her weight behind Katon “I got into politics because the government made me go to school with black kids and I hated it” Dawson.
Now, he was already a more interesting character because he had a narrative–the librul government butted into his life, forced him to go to school with black kids, and one of them beat him up. Oh, the tragedy! Oh the humanity! I mean, he was running around telling college kids this tale of woe, about the evils of the government stepping in and causing folks to get beat up, like that really meant something.
So, really, I have to ask you, is it any ANY surprise to learn that Dawsom seems to have, in his government-role, stepped in and caused someone to get beat up and run out of state?
Via Pam’s Blend, we learn of the rumors of said incident:
After divulging the nature of the incriminating material, the blackmailer is said to have requested $200,000 dollars to furnish all copies of the material in their possession to Dawson.
According to our sources, after viewing a sample of the material and receiving the extortion demand, Dawson reportedly told the blackmailer to give him twenty-four hours to come up with the money.
The next day, the blackmailer is said to have returned to Dawson’s home, only they didn’t receive the money – but were instead taken away and given a savage beating by three SLED [S.C. State Law Enforcement Division] agents.
Well, well, well. One wonders if it gives any Republicans pause to learn that Dawson thinks he’s above the law–that he doesn’t have to report an extortion attempt, that he can direct law enforcement agents to unlawfully administer beatings to people.
But who knows? Maybe the national GOP has a whole lot of people who know a whole lot of their secrets and maybe it’s a plus for the Chair to be willing to abuse his power in order to keep that stuff from coming out?
