Chip Limehouse - whose personal life has been all over the news this year - has retained his seat on the powerful S.C. State Transportation Infrastructure Bank , a glorified slush fund that has contributed mightily to the ongoing mis-prioritization of highway resources in the Palmetto State.

    The taxpayer-funded entrapment of dancers at at Upstate, S.C. strip club was far worse - and far more costly - than it has been portrayed in court, sources familiar with the situation tell us. According to prosecutors, law enforcement officers spent $26,000 on multiple visits to Platinum Plus - a strip club located in Greenville, S.C. Upstate solicitor Walt Wilkins targeted this club for closure last year - and the Greenville County sheriff's office conducted multiple " raids " against it in an effort to shut it down.

    We've written previously about Upstate solicitor Walt Wilkins ' "God Squad" and its efforts to shut down a strip club in Greenville, S.C.

Of course authorities in the Upstate spent plenty of taxpayer time - and taxpayer money - trying to bring down Platinum Plus and its employees.
