Former Tenenbaum Deputy Donatin' to Staton
FITS has learned that so-called "Republican" candidate for State Superintendent of Education Bob Staton received a campaign contribution this quarter from one Molly M. Spearman, a former Deputy Superintendent under outgoing Democratic State Superintendent of Education Inez Tenenbaum (right).
Spearman, who currently heads up the liberal S.C. Association of School Administrators, is also a former state legislator from Saluda County.
Among "Republican" Staton's other contributers are Carl B. Epps III, who argued the now infamous equity funding lawsuit for the plaintiff school districts last year, and Dan Campbell, CEO of Chernoff-Newman, the liberal ad agency behind the ongoing "Beware the Wolf" campaign against school choice in South Carolina.
And let's not forget Greenville's Craig Stine, a Staton contributor affiliated with ultra-liberal political advocacy group MoveOn.org.
Count on FITS to bring you more on "Status Quo" Staton's filing, along with other campaign related news as the candidates for statewide office here in South Carolina put their financial cards on the table.
