While the Blogland has no reason to believe that Clarendon County Democratic Represenative Cathy Harvin is planning to switch parties, this picture, which was taken at the recent Striped Bass Festival in Manning, clearly shows her meeting with some of the GOP big dogs in the region: Clarendon County GOP Chair Moye Graham, Sixth Congressional District GOP Chair Tommy Grimes, and June Brailsford, Treasurer of the Clarendon GOP.
This group's associations with the Blogland have been the subject of some discussion. Reportedly, Brailsford is a well-known BBQ kingpin in the region. Reportedly Brailsford and her family are responsible for supplying the BBQ addiction of the Blogland, while Graham - a delegate to the recent Republican National Convention - has reportedly bought several beers for Blogland staff. Sources have also alleged that the publisher of the Blogland, along with Graham and Grimes, are three of the Four Horsemen of the Political Apocalypse.
Being seen in the company of these GOP politicos certainly opens the door to speculation about what Harvin may have been discussing at the time this photo was taken. As always, we simply present what we know, and allow our readers to reach their own conclusions.
