Mitt Meddled in Charleston School Board Race



Harpers magazine's article on Mitt Romney, "How to Fabricate a Conservative," noted that an early effort to appeal to conservatives in South Carolina included a $2,000 donation to Arthur Ravenel's A-Team.

… a group of conservative school-board candidates in Charleston ($2,000) called, humorously enough, “The A-Team.” (One pities the fool who might oppose them.)

Considering the trouble the A-Team had, with a high-profile defection in Sandi Engleman and the arguable failure of the campaign, with Lurline and Robin both failing and Ray only successful because he ran unopposed and Arthur's later endorsement of Rudy Giuliani, I'd say that was money down the drain.
