    A South Carolina woman was found guilty of kidnapping charges stemming from the 2013 disappearance of her husband’s 20-year-old lover. Tammy Moorer was sentenced Tuesday to 60 years in prison on kidnapping and conspiracy charges in the case of Heather Elvis, a hostess who went missing from Myrtle Beach in December 2013. Elvis allegedly had an affair with Tammy’s husband, Sidney Moorer, before she vanished and abandoned her car at a local boat landing. Nearly five years later, the young woman has not been found. Moorer — who testified at the trial — maintained her innocence, claiming she never met...

    Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, both considered top potential 2020 presidential candidates, were only in South Carolina at the same time for about two hours last Friday morning, but their individual visits offered a preview of a potentially historic presidential primary featuring two leading African-American candidates. If they do decide to enter the race, they are likely to spend even more time in South Carolina, whose Democratic primary is traditionally one of the first on the calendar. It is also a state where African-American voters have been a decisive factor in elections.

    Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) was blasted on social media for comments he made about Canada being more American than the United States was. Booker was speaking to students at Allen University in South Carolina to help get out the vote for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. He said that other countries, including Canada, were “out-Americaning” the U.S. by providing cheaper college opportunities. “Other people talking about college debt, you’ve got to be kidding me,” Booker said. “Every country we are competing with is driving down the cost of college,” Booker claimed. “Germany – it cost between zero and four...

    SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. — A man was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Thursday for biting off his ex-girlfriend's lip in Simpsonville, solicitor Walt Wilkins said. Seth Aaron Fleury, 23, plead guilty to assault and battery of high and aggravated nature, Wilkins said. Fleury will have to serve at least 85 percent of the 12-year sentence before he becomes eligible for parole, Wilkins said. On Oct. 21, 2017, Fleury met his former girlfriend, Kayla Hayes, in Simpsonville to discuss their relationship. Fleury became angry when Hayes refused to resume the relationship. When he attempted to kiss her, she pulled away...

    AMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) - Workers at the Charleston Water System Plum Island Facility had their hands full over the weekend when the system was clogged by a massive amount of wipes. "It took a few days for us to get divers in here to actually dive down about 80 feet into raw sewage with their bare hands and feel around in total darkness," said Mike Saia, Communications Manager, Charleston Water System. Those divers found mounds and mounds of flushed wipes. They clogged the system and caused a huge backup. While the system is clear now, there are still wipes...

    I object to the reference in a recent Joe Cunningham article that Archie Parnell had “no credible opposition” in his primary for the fifth congressional district seat in South Carolina. I was his opponent. I graduated from Dartmouth. I’m good on the stump. I know what the hell I am talking about. Parnell spread the rumor that I was a Republican plant. (S.C. Democratic Party chairman) Trav Robertson told me everyone was saying that (there was only one place that rumor could have come from). Parnell stared so menacingly at my wife that she was upset and told me about...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does. “I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.” Graham said he would reveal the results on the show in a couple weeks.

The South Carolina Department of Commerce announced Tuesday that Linde Hydraulics Corp. will invest $13.4 million and create more than 60 jobs when it opens a new production site in Rock Hill. Linde is a global hydraulic and electronic drive system maker. “Linde Hydraulics is the latest industry leader to select our state for its operations, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to our dynamic business community,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement. The new 67,200-square-foot site at 1679 Overview Drive in Rock Hill should be up and...

    The former talk show host was slammed on social media Thursday for tweeting, "If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay. Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC." Many on social media were not amused and derided Handler’s joke as homophobic, tired, and lazy. “Not sure homophobic insults are the cleverest means of attacking opponents… Yikes.,” wrote one Twitter user. As for Graham -- he doesn't care what Handler has to say. "I don't think much about what she says at all," Graham told TMZ. "If she wants to live her life that way, that's up...

    Senator Lindsey Graham criticized Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and the Democratic Party on Wednesday for their behavior towards Brett Kavanaugh and their recent rhetoric during his appearance on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum. MacCallum began the conversation by showing the clip of Hillary Clinton saying there’s no room for civility in politics, which originally aired during a CNN interview on Tuesday. “I would say that if you think what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was civil, we have a definite different view of what civil means. Civil means that you do not destroy a good man because you want power. You...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...
  • South Carolina sees massive stink bug invasion: They're looking to 'move into people’s homes'

    Normally, when the weather begins to cool, stink bugs look for shelter. But in this case, the shorter days have likely promoted the critters to seek shelter in advance of cooler temperatures. “This is the time of year when these bugs start to look forward to shelter and move into people’s homes,” Benson said, adding the brown marmorated stink bugs — which were first reported in the United States in the 1990s and in South Carolina roughly six or seven years ago — “aggregate in large numbers in sheltered locations.”While it’s not an issue when these insects aggregate in a...

The Colorado Republican also said someone posted the names and addresses of his family members online. Gardner is the latest GOP lawmaker to be targeted with the intimidation tactic known as “doxxing” in recent weeks. Jackson Cosko, a former Democratic aide, was arrested last week...

"This is a list that was compiled in November, but he actually put it out during the campaign," Graham told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, as he held up the list. "Twenty something people on this list, asking Chuck Schumer, name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you." Schumer and fellow Democrats tried to pressure Trump and Republicans to withdraw then Supreme...
