Has Thomas Ravenel no shame? Is there no limit to what he will do to embarrass himself and South Carolina?

He betrayed the public trust as state treasurer, committing crimes for which he was imprisoned. He gets work in reality TV to portray the kind of person South Carolinians most definitely are not. To top it off, he fathers a child out of wedlock, in a very public way.

And now he thinks he should be one of South Carolina’s two U.S. senators? It would be laughable if it were not so disgusting.
