Closing in on the "Geniouses"
FITS' crack investigative staff (left) is close to exposing the identities of those responsible for the website Palmetto Voice, which last week attempted to blackmail former House Majority Leader and State Treasurer candidate Rick Quinn.
More importantly, FITS is also on the verge of proving that the April 16 blackmail threat (which was removed from the website the day after it was posted) was based on deliberately falsified information, or information that the blog's authors knew to be untrue.
Stay tuned to FITS for more on this developing story and its potential legal ramifications for Palmetto Voice's authors as well as the rest of the SC blogosphere ...
Incidentally, one of Palmetto Voice's contributors posted what they thought was an anonymous comment on the FITS' Warren Tompkins story over the weekend, rhetorically asking our own Will Folks the following doozy:
"If you're such a media genious (sic) why couldn't you bury that story of you beating your ex?"
As it turns out, the misspelling of the word genius (PV apparently spells it "genious") is the same exact misspelling featured on PV's latest post.
Way to go, geniouses.
