Howard Rich’s pool boy announces his puppetmaster is in the clear

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

What a surprise – one of NYC millionaire Howard Rich’s heimwehren here gets an “exclusive” and talks to a “legal source” about Atty. Gen. Henry McMaster shutting down any chance of looking into Rich’s attempt to buy the S.C. General Assembly.

Vierdsen wonders who at the Greenville News gave Will Folks the information from the attorney general’s office. For some reason, the name “Dan Hoover” keeps knocking about. That wouldn’t be too much of a surprise.

Of course, there was never any chance of McMaster doing anything – he’s too busy checking up on his many properties around town. Ha! But seriously, his consultants have taken thousands of dollars from at least one of Rich’s front groups, and he’s going to want Rich’s deep pockets and the help of S.C. Club for Growth and SCRG when he runs for governor.

The biggest thing about this, though, is what Michael Kinsley likes to say about DC: The scandal is about what’s legal, not what’s illegal.
