Re: “Slush fund allegations arise in race for RMC, an office you've (probably) never heard of

The attorney, Michael White, who is quoted in this article defending Charlie turns out to be a major campaign donor to Charlie's election campaign. He made a $200 contribution on 3/23.

Re: “Who is Rep. Samuel Rivers Jr.?

It will be interesting to see if anyone else follows up given he says his assault and battery was "thrown out" when public record shows he was found guilty. Nice to see investigative journalism lives on at The City Paper - I only hope some of the other Charleston media outlets might do their job and follow up on this.

Re: “Thomas Legare says late campaign ethics filing was an honest mistake

Actually we put out a statement because we believe everyone should follow the law and be held accountable for their actions. Mr. Legare didn't follow the law until he was called out by The Democratic Party. We wish the State Ethics Commission would have done their job and forced Mr. Legare to file but unfortunately that agency has been gutted by Mr. Legare's own party.

Re: “We need more young people on City Council

Mat - To your bigger point. Just because you've withdrawn in disgust from the process or offering solutions doesn't mean 90-97% of voters have.

I think apathy is real - and hurts the system. You admit as much when you said the problem is the "disconnect from the bulk of the population by the educated and the political class.". I wouldn't disagree with that.

I just think the solution is getting a larger and more diverse group of people to go vote so their concerns are heard. If we all just withdraw and complain in a column but don't do anything else that disconnect will only grow.

Re: “We need more young people on City Council

Mat - On the 3-10% agreed.
The editing department over at CCP kind of screwed over that line. In the smallest district 365 people voted which equals 3% turnout. In the best performing district 1,186 people voted which equals 10%. Hence the range. I was just trying to point out turnout is low no matter what council district we are talking about.
