If one wants to administer an intelligence test to Charleston County politicos, ask them about the political affiliation of school board candidate Henry Copeland.
Even though Copeland's vocal support of Obama should make it obvious to one and all that he's a liberal Democrat, there are still some Charleston County Republicans seem to buy what he's selling - and who would therefore fail the aforementioned intelligence test.
While what he's selling should be of concern, what he's taking from taxpayers should be even more concerning.
The Blogland received a copy of an invoice where the Charleston County School District was billed for an event fee for Henry Copeland. While Copeland is currently running for a seat, he has never served on the board, thus shouldn't be attempting to have anything billed to the school district (see below for a snapshot of the invoice).
Also on the invoice is Elizabeth Kandrac, an outgoing board member well-known for leading the expense budgets for board members and a Copeland supporter.
We've been told this has happened more than once and we're looking into this to get copies of the invoices. Watch for those as we receive them.
Kandrac had no place bringing her buddy along for a trip (and taking taxpayers for a ride - again) and Copeland should never have sought to freeload because politicians aren't supposed to be able to screw taxpayers until AFTER they're elected - which should give you an idea how he'll treat taxpayers if he actually is elected to the school board.
But we're not the only ones who are concerned about Copeland. Others have set up a Facebook group to discuss Copeland's politics: https://www.facebook.com/HenryCopelandIsADemocrat. We think you should check it out.
