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

Published

on

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!!!

SLED UPDATE – Chad Connelly Embezzlement Matter

Published

on

Back in March, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office issued a FORMAL referral to SLED (State Law Enforcement Division) to investigate the Chad Connelly “Embezzlement Matter”.  

This is a known and disclosed fact … yet Chad Connelly has been running around South Carolina telling folks there is no SLED investigation.  Wow, this is sad. 

Well, last week we sent letters inquiring into the status of the investigation.  It has been four months, so maybe they had an update.

Well, we received a reply … and apparently the investigation is still ongoing. 

This is going to be BIG friends.  We don’t think this one can be swept under the rug.  We are told that South Carolina law enforcement knows they have to do something and they know people are watching.  South Carolina is known for it’s PUBLIC CORRUPTION

What has gone on with our school choice program is in our opinion PUBLIC CORRUPTION at its worst!!!

“SLED or any other agency”???OR ANY OTHER AGENCY???  Who else may be looking into Chad Connelly and this embezzlement matter???  Maybe just standard lawyer language … or was this a clue that other law enforcement agencies are looking into this matter.

This is a highly political matter.  Chad Connelly is friends with A LOT of political figures.  But even though some folks have tried to cover up for Chad … there are people trying to expose this matter for us, for you, and most importantly for your K-12 children.  

Stay tuned … and KEEP PUSHING!!!  Expose them all!!!

Exceptional SC’s Secretary of State Financial Report Late

Published

on

Annually (not so) Exceptional SC is required to file a TAX RETURN as well as REGISTER with the SC Secretary of State.  The latest extended deadline for the 7/1/2019-6/30/2020 tax return is May 15th, 2021.  We have been trying to get a copy of the tax return, a PUBLIC DOCUMENT, to no avail … so the situation seems VERY curious.

So we checked this week with the SC Secretary of State’s Office.  Filing the TAX RETURN with the Secretary of State is the “Financial Report”.  That was due as well May 15th, 2021.  As of today, it has not been filed.

What does that mean?  Well, technically Exceptional SC is still registered for right now, the SC Secretary of State’s Office confirmed that “There is currently a violation for that delinquent report that is accruing a fine of $10/day.”

Just further evidence the Government Appointed Board Members at (not so) Exceptional SC have no idea what they are doing.
