Those who voted ‘aye,’ and those who voted ‘nay’ on flag

Y’all can get this from various other sources, but it took me a few minutes, so for your convenience, here’s who voted “aye” in the S.C. House on moving toward taking the flag down:

house yea

And here are those who voted “nay,” those who were absent, and those who just did not vote:

house nay

The Senate pass the amendment by a voice vote. The only ones making a point of registering their dissent were:

  1. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg
  2. Tom Corbin, R-Greenville
  3. Danny Verdin, R-Laurens

People used to say of the eccentricities of the Lowcountry that “there’s something in the water” down there in Charleston. I wonder what they’re drinking in the Upstate…

    Bill Sandifer is my rep. and I’ve noticed that he has opted not to cast a vote on several issues important to me in the recent past. I had about a 15-minute chat with him on the phone a couple of years ago about an issue that he was waffling on and he eventually DID vote on the matter and in the way I’d hoped. It may be time to rattle his cage again….
