MYRTLE BEACH – Lois Eargle felt the sting of the political whip this week when she was one of two people cut from a presidential campaign for making unpopular remarks.

Eargle, the Horry County auditor, knows she’ll be taking the lashes for a long time just by looking at the fate of the other person dropped by the Duncan Hunter campaign – Henry Jordan, whose words have stuck with him for a decade.

“I guess, darling, just to put it in a nutshell, that’s politics,” she said.

Ten years ago during a school board meeting, former board member Jordan said, “Screw the Buddhists and kill the Muslims,” adding, “And put that in the minutes.” He said it was a joke.
