It seemed as if he lost no time in attempting to sic the State Ethics Commission on the breakfast club:
“I am calling an ethics investigation,” Arnette said. “We are not going to associate ourselves with that breakfast club.”
The call for an investigation came on the heels of a weeklong war of words between Arnette and breakfast moderator Charles Schuster. It also followed the latest GOP breakfast in Goose Creek, which saw Arnette asked to leave the podium as he addressed the gathering.
It would seem that if Wade Arnette can't control the group, he'll simply smash it. We thought games like this only took place in elementary school.
Arnette seems hell-bent on making the crybaby joke apply on a bi-partsian basis. One should not be surprised that he's turned on Schuster and this club, just as he turned on former County Supervisor Jim Rozier, whose campaigns he once managed.
While Arnette's actions have been of grave concern, even more concerning are reports that the "Breakfastgate" situation goes even higher. Over a dozen individuals have approached us and informed us that they believed state GOP chair Katon Dawson has been guiding Arnette's efforts. We certainly invite him to present his side of the story - and hope he does it soon.
