Green in SC Congressional race vs Colbert sister, disgraced ex-Gov

April 5, 2013. Charleston. Get ready for the most television-driven Congressional race of 2013. In one month, voters will go to the polls in the South Carolina Special Election featuring a disgraced former Governor against an unknown, inexperienced sister of a popular Comedy Central host. But there is a third option – the Green Party’s Eugene Platt. And he’s serious, experienced and credible.

Eugene Platt

A native of Charleston, Eugene Platt is a retired Federal Civil Service employee. He’s also the son of a South Carolina Naval shipyard worker and a veteran US Army paratrooper. He’s nobody’s push-over. And unlike his two opponents in next month’s Special Election to replace newly-appointed US Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Platt has spent the last 20 years serving his local community as an elected member of the James Island Public Service District Commission. In fact, he’s the Green Party’s only elected official in the state.

It’s safe to say that public service is a life-long passion of Eugene Platt. His sincerity and honesty comes shining through with little doubt. Strangely, that’s yet another characteristic that his two opponents seem to be lacking. Through their powerful friends in the corporate media, the Democrats’ Elizabeth Colbert Busch and the Republicans’ Mark Sanford have already taken their fight to New York – to a playing field of celebrities and lifestyles that Platt and the rest of the 1st district are rarely welcomed or invited.

    Why do you call Sanford disgraced? So he had a mistress in Argentina, he’s sill a great friend of small government.

    I like Sanford and I’m strongly supporting him. He’s a good friend of liberty. He said he would have endorsed Ron Paul in 2012 had his Fox News contract not prevented him from doing so. He has also been endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC).

    That said, having an extramarital affair, using state funds for it and lying about it does make a person disgraced to a certain extent. But as a Christian I believe in redemption and forgiveness. And quite frankly, I could care less about his personal life, it is his politics that matters.

    “I like Sanford and I’m strongly supporting him. He’s a good friend of liberty.”

    With “friends” like him, no wonder liberty is in so much trouble.

    “He has also been endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC).”

    Many not-so-libertarian Republicans have been endorsed by the RLC.
