“Lame” House Amendment – FAILS!!! On Purpose???

Published

https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=340596693825818

Well, when it came out on Wednesday September 16th that Rep. Herbkersman was going to submit and Amendment to help “fix” (not so) Exceptional SC … and it was going to include INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS … we knew the “paid” OPPOSITION would come out strong.

They did just that … postponing the amendment until the last day … until it was too late!!!

Not the Democrat opposition … but the “conservative” Republican / ESA / Palmetto Promise Institute opposition.  You remember … the same people that proposed / supported the DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE taking over the program.  Because it would be “BIGGER.  BETTER.  FASTER.”

The same ones that keep blaming the FAILURES of (not so) Exceptional SC on the tax law changes or COVID-19.  The ones that HIRED (the now FIRED) Chad Connelly!!!

Oh … and the same people pushing the SAFE Grant debacle as well.  The ones willing to do ANYTHING except what is proven to work in EVERY OTHER STATE for 300,000 children each year and for the past 20+ years.  Experimenting with YOUR Children!!!

Well … that is EXACTLY what appears to have happened this week.

Watch the first minute & 1/2 of the video:

PASSED 100 to 0

And, don’t forget … they LITERALLY WAITED UNTIL THE LAST DAY OF SESSION.  The last two hours before the Senate adjourned for the YEAR.  Watch what they DO … not what they SAY!!!

BUT, WAS THE AMENDMENT EVEN REAL?:  Look at what it included.  Some minor “half” tweaks that would help fundraising … A LITTLE …

But the MAIN CHANGE … bumping up the FEE for the (not so) Exceptional SC Board from 2% to 5%.

NOT for the Kids … but for THEMSELVES!!!

That is the only change the “opposition” was willing to really give.  #FollowTheMoney!!!

HOW DO WE KNOW IT WAS A SET-UP???:  Rep. Herbkersman asked my personal house rep, Jason Elliott (R – Greenville) on Wednesday September 16th to send me a copy of Rep. Herkhersman’s Amendment.

Jason REFUSED!!!!  Probably did not want us getting a copy of something with INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS INCLUDED.

Plus … look at the date of Jason Elliott’s “Amendment” … he had that one since September 16th as well … but Jason REFUSED to send us a copy of that one either.

Rep. Herbkersan told us HIS amendment would include INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS … but JASON ELLIOTT’S “Amendment” DID NOT.

Rep. Elliott did not want ALL YOU PARENTS CALLING him … our your legislators all weekend … INSISTING his amendment include INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS.  So, he HIDE IT.

We even had SC House Reps reach out to us after the 100 to 0 vote … EXCITED WE FINALLY FIXED IT!!!  They too were TOLD … by Rep. Jason Elliott … that the Amendment had “Independent Non-Profits” … but they were LIED TO AS WELL.  They were not happy to find out the truth.

Watch what they DO, not what they SAY.

We reached out via Text to Rep. Jason Elliott for comment.  No Comment!!!

What does it appear Rep. Jason Elliott DID???  He inserted himself in the process … and KILLED THE AMENDMENT!?!?!?  He knows that is how we feel, so if it was not true he would comment.

ESAs people … he LOVES the “paid” advocates / “monied” special interest Government Run ESAs!!!

#FollowTheMoney!!!

Jason Elliott has been wrong for 4 YEARS now … all 4 years he has been in office … and he is still putting $$$ above your children!!!

$8 MILLION “lost” by (not so) Exceptional SC!!!

Published

on

Well, the final numbers are in for 2020. 

Exceptional SC raised “only” $4,045,107.80 (out of the available $12 MILLION) in 2020.

As such … $8 MILLION has been lost forever … AGAIN!!!  Exceptional SC “lost” $7.45 MILLION in 2019!!!

THE BANK STATEMENT:  We were able to get the bank statements this past week via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. 

These bank statements revealed (among other things) that $2.1 MILLION was from one donor.  Had it not been for the generosity of this one donor … it would have been even more disastrous.

Palmetto Kids FIRST Donor:  And no … this $2.1 million donor was not a huge victory for (not so) Exceptional SC.  This was a Palmetto Kids FIRST donor we first brought to the table in 2014. 

Exceptional SC is still living off all the work the “independent non-profits” did and not adding any new value to the situation.

Nothing has changed for the better … 

Independent Non-Profits … just like every other state … is the ONLY solution!!!

Exceptional SC Legal Status EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Published

on

Seriously … can this be happening again??? 

Granted, I am a tax attorney / CPA … so I think about these things all the time … and one of the VERY FIRST THINGS they teach us “tax people” is BEFORE YOUR CLIENT DONATES TO A NON-PROFIT … check their legal status.  If not all in order, and you let your client donate … it could be LEGAL MALPRACTICE!!!

First you check that the non-profit is actually an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit … and then you check the Secretary of State’s Office to verify the organization’s legal status is current.

(not so) Exceptional SCs Status?  EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Why, Why, Why???  Remember this from JANUARY 2020 … we mocked the incompetency back then … but no, the #FireTheBoard!!! at (not so) Exceptional SC let their legal status expire AGAIN!!! 

Board Malpractice!!!

Legal Status Expired in January 2020 & AGAIN in December 2020

This says it all … WE know how to FIX ALL OF THIS … but the (not so) Exceptional SC Board won’t do anything … won’t talk … won’t meet … just blame others.  STOP THE INSANITY!!!!
