Someone wants popular Governor Mark Sanford impeached in South Carolina for not taking Obama’s tainted stimulus funds.
But, it’s not the GOP.
The signs are part of a small backlash against Sanford for refusing to take $700 million in federal stimulus money for South Carolina. So who are behind these signs? The most likely culprits would be state Democrats says the Palmetto Scoop.
Democrats are playing dirty politics in South Carolina and posting fake “GOP Impeach Sanford” signs.

Anger is fomenting in certain establishment (i.e. government) circles over Sanford’s refusal to take $700 million in federal bureaucratic bailout funds.
And while most of the “anger” is really taxpayer-funded bureaucratic manipulation aimed at perpetuating a failed status quo – that hasn’t stopped some insiders from getting creative in exploiting Sanford’s rift with prominent GOP leaders.
Like pinning the “impeachment” message on the tail of Republicans, for example.
In fact, the South Carolina Republican Party had to come out today and clarify that red-and-white yard signs cropping up recently bearing the message “Take the Stimulus Funds, Impeach Sanford” (with the SCGOP’s name and phone number) are fakes.
“These are NOT SCGOP signs, not authorized by the SCGOP and not paid for the SCGOP,” party executive director Jay W. Ragley said in an e-mail distributed to Republican activists. “It’s shameful politics by the Democrats.”
No one knows yet who is behind the fake signs, but Republicans are urging their supporters to “pull them out of the ground.”
Wasn’t Andrew Breitbart just talking about these dirty tricks yesterday?
Political leftists play for keeps. They are willing to lie, perform deceptive acts in a coordinated fashion and do so in a wicked way – all in the pursuit of victory. Moral relativism is alive and well in the land of Hope and Change and its Web-savvy youth brigade expresses its “idealism” in a most cynical fashion.
