Surprise, Surprise

Looks like Giuliani’s RINO values have trickled down to his campaign staffers:

South Carolina Treasurer Thomas Ravenel, a former real estate developer who became a rising political star after his election last year, was indicted Tuesday on federal cocaine charges.

Ravenel is also the state chairman for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign.

Ravenel has stepped down from his volunteer responsibilities with the campaign, according to a statement released by Mark Campbell, Giuliani’s political director.

Campbell said the campaign has no information about the accusations pending against Ravenel.

The millionaire is accused of buying less than 500 grams of the drug to share with other people in late 2005, U.S. Attorney Reggie Lloyd said.

Ravenel, 44, is charged with distribution of cocaine, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

It seems to me that the underlings in an organization receive their values from the man on top. If he’s a thrice-divorced adultering cross-dresser, they’re unlikely to have a problem with being the same. Also, people with loose morals, like Mr. Ravenel, will tend to gravitate toward campaigns that offer the same sort of atmosphere. Giuliani’s campaign certainly seems like one where cocaine usage would be tolerated, far more so than even the campaign of a Huckabee or a Hunter, much less Brownback.

Anyway, kudos to South Carolina law enforcement for nabbing this crook! The great State of South Carolina deserves better than to be represented by Giuliani scumbags like this one.

  1. We can just sit back and watch Guilliani and his crew end up in jail or droned out on drugs, and, ultimately, end in eternal damnation. I pray that I will have the Godly strength to refrain from dancing on their graves.

  2. Rotten Rudy probably has his nose in the candy dish too. All of those LIEberals and RINOs are sniffing something. If it isn’t something illegal that enhnaces their perverted sexual desires it’s each others butts.

    I pray that one decent Conservative reporter will find something really bad on Rudy and post in in the paper!

    YIC,

    Mrs. T.D. Gaines-Crockett

  4. “Rotten Rudy probably has his nose in the candy dish too. All of those LIEberals and RINOs are sniffing something. If it isn’t something illegal that enhnaces their perverted sexual desires it’s each others butts.”

    I had the same thought.

    Reminds me of that drunk, coke sniffer in the White House, bush”

    Whatever Bush did in the past, he’s more than atoned for it. He’s repented, and found his way to God. More than can be said for any Democrat worth naming, “Iamanatheistmoonbat.”

    He probably needed it for a Satanic coven of some sort. I think illegal drugs are a major factor in those events.

  7. PRESS NOTICE
    REGINALD I. LLOYD
    UNITED STATES ATTORNEY
    DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA

    1441 Main Street, Suite 500 * Columbia, SC 29201 * (803) 929-3000*

    June 19, 2007

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    CONTACT PERSON: KEVIN F. MCDONALD
    (803) 929-3000

    SOUTH CAROLINA STATE TREASURER THOMAS RAVENEL
    INDICTED ON FEDERAL DRUG CHARGE

    Columbia, South Carolina —- United States Attorney REGINALD I. LLOYD stated today that South Carolina State Treasurer THOMAS RAVENEL, age 44, of Charleston, along with another man, MICHAEL L. MILLER, age 25, of Mt. Pleasant, were charged in one-count Indictment this afternoon with conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute.

    The Indictment reads as follows:

    THE GRAND JURY CHARGES:

    That beginning at a time unknown to the grand jury, but beginning at least in or around late 2005, and continuing thereafter, up to and including the date of this Indictment, in the District of South Carolina, the defendants, THOMAS RAVENEL and MICHAEL L. MILLER, knowingly and intentionally did combine, conspire and agree together and have tacit understanding with each other and others, both known and unknown to the grand jury, to knowingly, intentionally and unlawfully possess with intent to distribute and to distribute a quantity of cocaine, a Schedule II controlled substance in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(C);

    All in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 846.

    Mr. Lloyd stated the maximum penalty RAVENEL and MILLER could receive is a fine of $1,000,000.00 and/or imprisonment of 20 years.

    Mr. Lloyd stated that the case was investigated by agents of the FBI and SLED, and that he has assigned the case to Assistant United States Attorney William Witherspoon of the Columbia office for prosecution.

    Mr. Lloyd stated that all charges in this Indictment are merely accusations and that all defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The Indictment reads as follows:

    I DON’T SEE ANY LANGUAGE IN THE DOCUMENT THAT SAYS….HE WAS “JUST SHARING WITH FRIENDS”……..
    ……………IT STATES: ” AND TO DISTIBUTE A QUANTITY OF COCAINE”
    You can try to sugar coat an indictment if you want to, but “cocaine distribution” IS “Cocaine Distribution” IT IS WHAT IT IS!

  8. The federal mandatory sentencing for first offenders is 500 grams or more for a 5 year mandatory sentence.

    Under SC law 44-53-370

    between 400-500 grams of cocaine is a mandatory sentence for first time offender of no less then 25 years and up to 30 years.
    Gee… I wonder why SLED bowed out… (f’ing snark)

    SLED investigates and brings charges, Ravenel gets 25 years… FBI investigates and brings charges, Ravenel doesn’t meet mandatory sentencing.

  9. ..but you can’t hide.

    If Ravenel is convicted of distribution of cocaine, he can serve as much as 20 years in prison. I would say that it is more likely that he will cut a “plea deal” to serve a short amount of time behind bars along with probation.

    If Ravenel cuts a “plea deal”, in other words, “pleads guilty” then the Feds should insist that he roll over on a “Bigger Fish” If he does not roll over, then he should do some serious jail time with the rest of the “Cocaine Distributors”.

  11. […] That’s a good thing, right?  Er, no.  He’s hired wonderful people over the years like druggies and Bernard Kerik.  Not even Mittens Romney can compare.  And when it comes to the criminal […]
