Darby out at Palmetto Policy Group

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

The common thought is that politics is one of the industries that is pretty close to recession-proof, since there will always be elections and legislation.

Well, tell that to J.J. Darby (or John J. Darby III, if you’re nasty), who put out a widely-circulated email today announcing that he would be leaving Palmetto Policy Group. Why would this be? As a lobbyist for PPG, he represented a number of clients, including PPG’s building mates, South Carolinians for Responsible Government.

Word on the street is that Darby had to be let go because — hold on to your asses — NYC libertarian financier and school choice clown Howard Rich is pulling his lobbying cash out of South Carolina.

If this is true, it marks the ultimate referendum on the ’08 General Assembly elections — a significant defeat for Rich and his heimwehren in this state.
