Rudy Giuliani named today as his South Carolina co-chairman Arthur Ravanel, the father of Rudy's former chair, South Carolina Treasurer Thomas Ravenel, who was indicted last week on a federal cocaine charge.But, UH-oh! Something tells me something else is a-comin'!
Ravanel's tongue has gotten him in trouble in the past.Even Macaca Face himself had more self-control than that.
On October 18, 2006 The Post and Courier of Charleston, SC wrote " Arthur Ravenel Jr., who is running for an East Cooper seat on the board, caught flack 16 years ago when he was in Congress and made a comment about white committee chairmen who operated on 'black time,' which he said meant fashionably late."
As recently as January 2000, the Post and Courier reported in an article headlined "Ravenel stepped outside 'civility,'" that Ravenel called the NAACP the "National Association For Retarded People."
