My Latest Work

The Dark Side of Republican State Representative Matt Leber

Republican nominee for South Carolina’s State Senate District 41 Matt Leber’s website reads:  “​​Rep. Leber is a decorated combat veteran, husband, father, patriot, and limited government constitutional conservative who is dedicated to promoting South Carolina values and helping ordinary Americans thrive.” It should also add that he’s been accused of domestic violence, arrested for assault and stalking, and had his firearms seized by law enforcement.
