Best Display of Passion on the Statehouse Floor 

Jenny Horne

Staff Pick

While we can’t credit Summerville Republican Rep. Jenny Horne with single-handedly removing the Confederate flag from Statehouse grounds, it’s hard to imagine it happening without her impassioned speech on the floor of the House, a speech that seemingly embarrassed her fellow representatives into abandoning their lost cause to save the flag. Sadly, since then Horne seemingly aligned herself with the forces of bigotry, by blasting U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford for his condemnation of Donald Trump. In case you haven’t heard, Horne is challenging the Luv Guv for his First District seat in the U.S. House, and evidently, Horne feels she needs Trump’s Lowcountry army on her side to win in November, proving she’s willing to kowtow to the worst elements in America today to do it. We hate to say we were wrong about Jenny Horne, but we were. —Chris Haire
