In reaction to disclosures regarding Rick Quinn’s case, former state GOP Chairman Matt Moore Tweeted this:
Classic example of what reform-minded leaders in S.C. face every day. Sadly, many of the individuals involved in this scandal are still serving at the highest levels of state government. https://t.co/2tNuJhalO1

I retweeted it, and former state Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison responded:
Always a class act!
Yes, Jaime, and so are you.
I normally don’t care much for parties, as y’all know, but I often approve of some of their members. And Matt and Jaime were unusual party chairs. They were friends rather than enemies, and worked together when they could for the betterment of South Carolina. For instance, they stood shoulder-to-shoulder for removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds.
Later, they both came out for reforming two of the greatest scourges of partisanship: gerrymandering and straight-ticket voting.
Our politics needs more guys like these two…
