In her appearance before the Cherokee County GOP vetting committee, candidate Jackie Archer answered “No” to a question about whether or not she had ever filed bankruptcy. You can see the answer for yourself right after the 17 M 30S mark in this video:
Simple enough. But since it’s oppo-drop season, we were shown a bunch of documents that purport to show that Ms. Archer did in fact file for a bankruptcy shortly after or maybe during her divorce, and that during her second marriage she managed to somehow convert the bankruptcy from one kind to another kind and then transferred real estate becauzzzzzz… And then we fell asleep. Because as much as we admire detailed opposition dirt-digging from 1999, too many facts make any story boring.
Ms. Archer’s answer will no doubt enrage (some of) the voters in Cherokee County, who will no doubt angrily demand answers, but they should at least be grateful that their local Republican party has a “vetting committee,” a mechanism to virtually guarantee that all their primary races will contain at least one “gotcha” moment for everybody.
Don’t ever change, Cherokee.
