Patterson Interview Available on Warthen's Blog
If you haven't yet seen the video of Treasurer Grady Patterson's editorial board interview with The State newspaper, click here.
You may never see anything quite like it again.
"He makes up stuff," Patterson says of GOP nominee Thomas Ravenel, but then fails to offer any examples.
"I don't have a list of it or anything," Patterson says.
Eventually, Patterson refers to the already debunked arguments of John Rainey, which it appears from the tape he may have been prompted to do by an aide.
Patterson also reiterates his refusal to debate Ravenel (despite the fact Ravenel has met his one condition for debates by pledging to serve a full term) and suggests that he will refute the Republican's well-documented claims "later - at some other forum."
Asked if that meant after the election, Patterson says "we won't have to deal with him after the election, I don't think."
Since we're already getting accused of everything under the sun here at FITS, we'll refrain from any further commentary at this point and let you decide for yourself how Patterson performed.
