Seriously? You couldn't come up with any better names then that? You can go ahead and cross Marty Lewis off, he'll never work in law enforcement again. Mark Lewis isn't any better and Chris Batten is a joke.

county justice you are right Marty Lewis will never work in law enforcement again. But this is Columbus County!! Chris Batten is a joke, and its time for him to go. And Mark Lewis is better than Batten ever thougt of being. I know he was a good deputy and was straight up about his job. He would at least be honest with you about things. HE arrested me several times from where my ex would take warrants out on me for some bullcrap. But he was always honest and straight up. He would say if you did do what it said on the warrant, you should be a man and take my punishment for it. But if you didn't do it,get a lawyer a fight to prove you didn't do it. He still talks to me today when he see me, and asks how is everything going these days. At least he would do his job the way it was suppose to be done. I know I would vote for him.

Batten is a thug. He cares little about the law and does all he can to supplement his income behind the scenes if you know what I mean. He will eventually go down in history just like former Sheriff Gerald Hege, former Sheriff Glenn Maynor, former Sheriff Bill Rhodes and former Sheriff Ronald Hewett-in prison where they deserved to be.

Ok the only one I would vote for is Mark Lewis. He was a very good deputy for many years and worked hard. I would say he was the best Columbus County has ever had. He got done wrong by some of those crooks that work for Chris Batten. Now one of them has his job after they lied on him. He did all the work for years to get the traffic unit. And when he gets it he gets a knife in the back for his job. So if he runs he will have mine and all my families vote, because we know how good a man he is. Go for it Mark... God please bless Columbus County with a good man like Mark. He will be a hard worker to make our county safe

Mark Lewis is a joke and a liar there is no way he could be an honest Sheriff. The man cheated on his wife and lied to his daughter while cheating with a much younger girl and knowing him couldn't keep his mouth shut about it so when the rumors spread he started blaming everyone else and it got him in trouble. Yeah Mark Lewis for Sheriff that's like putting a rooster in a hen house. Lol

Mark Lewis? Please the man cheated on his wife with another woman that was dating a man that got busted for growing marijuana. The is like 10 years younger than him and he was seeing her on duty. Plus he sent false reports to the state about the traffic grant and the grant people told Batten if he didnt do something that they were going to drop the Sheriffs office and make them pay all the money back. O yeah let's get him in there he will really stay on top of things or someone else's woman one. Lol

The reason I would not vote for him is not because he is an adulterer. I wouldn't vote for him because he is a habitual liar and he's not very intelligent. And if you know him you know I'm telling the truth.

Anyone besides Chris Batten.
Well you can speak about Tabor cops all you want. But let's talk about our not-so-honest reputable sheriff Chris Batten. I invite anyone to Google sheriff Chris Batten and see what sort of reputation the not-so-good sheriff has amassed. He is a cross section of Columbus County's reputation over the last several decades.Though he's only been around for a few terms, he has done so much to live up to the Columbus County Corruption name that we have become defined by. Arrogant, nasty, body-odored bully. He runs his department like he acted in school. This county needs term limits and fast. One of the head commissioners Buddy Byrd was just arrested last year in Horry County while another came out in the paper making money off of Waste Management, a group contracted with the county. And what of the Department of Aging director who had missing almost a million from his budget? Nothing, absolutely nothing was ever done. "Cuz" used his position, and county money, to promote an elected official- a felony. That too was swept under the rug. Gotta love Columbus County and the crooks it employs.

Anyone besides Chris Batten. Amen to that. It is a shame that such a person was ever elected. But then again look, we elected Obama. The Columbus County machine manipulates the good citizens (and black churches) way too much.

I voted for Chris two times and I thought he was a better man. I learned better. Columbus County needs someone who is of a better moral character. It needs someone who does not have a history of telling fibs. Unfortunately that person is not Chris Batten. I do not know this Lewis character but if these things I read are true-he's not the one either. These men or deputies Chris has attacking everyone who disagrees with him will only hurt him more. The folks you guys try to slander are not elected and do not have to run for office. Remember that.

What Batten needs to do is find out who you are and sue u for slanderism. I bet that would add to your hate for him. Also if u Google him all you read is this crap that people like you write. So what do you expect. If you give me your name I will write some things bout you and see what happens when your name gets Googled. Although I like your user name fits you well but you left the part that really describes you well. Haha

Tweadle Dumb,

Exactly what did "Tweadle Dee" write about Chris Batten that was slanderous? With the exception of the bully issue, I can find documents that show Mr. Batten lied, county commissioner Byrd was charged with domestic violence in SC and commissioner Russ does profit off of a company that Columbus County is contracted with etc. Your county's name is synonymous with corruption. That's easy to see. I have never been around Mr. Batten so I can't say anything about the body odor though I have seen in the paper where he has an bowel disease and he is quite large so go figure that. Large people tend to sweat more. We should pray for all parties concerned and especially Columbus County. These postings are sad but I have found that where there is smoke-there is often "fire." Thank God and our founders for free speech.

I would like to see anyone besides Christopher Lee Batten in that office. I think it an utter disgrace the way he did Mrs. Marva Scott. In these bad times, the $195,000 the taxpayers had to pay due to his lies and harassment of Mrs. Scott is ridiculous. And many Columbus County voters and taxpayers never knew about this suit, caused by the sheriff, that was settled out of court.

The people do know about the suit back in 2005 but they are not dragging it with them like others are. If Batten has done so much wrong please do tell other than the Scott suit or Frink suicide. Something new and more recent please.

This hidden out of court settelment was widely covered by the News Reporter. May want to get a subscription. And it didn't cost the taxpayers $195,000. The county's insurance paid the overwhelming majority of that money. When you get on here and your facts aren't right you loose credibility in your post.

Yep but the county's rate are affected by the amount of claims it has to pay Chris. You know that. But does that negate the sheriff overreacting and slandering a poor innocent lady, going in armed to the teeth as if to remove a bank robber and ordering people around? The "new and recent" is coming.Count on it.
