Three Berkeley County Republican officials fire back after being censured for supporting a Democrat. The Berkeley County Republican Party censured Berkeley County Supervisor Dan Davis, and County Councilmen Bob Call and Jack Schurlknight on Monday. They endorsed Councilman Caldwell Pinckney during November’s elections.
In the censure resolution, it states the three men also allegedly misrepresented a call to be more transparent to reorganize council committees.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the three officials said the allegations are…
…a complete violation of due process…It is astonishing to us that the executive committee–the leadership–of a political party would so blatantly violate a pillar of our country’s fundamental Constitutional rights.
The men also pointed out that other Republicans have supported Democrats without being criticized.
The Berkeley County Republican Party’s vote to censure the three was unanimous.
