Adam (Andrzejewski) just explained what I've been waiting for someone to do-- which is (to show) just how corrupt all of this is
- top to bottom." 
The Charleston Meeting, South Carolina, April 21, 2014

Adam Andrzejewski, founder of Open The Books, addressed Mallory Factor's Charleston Meeting last Monday.  Gov. Haley Barbour (MS), Congressman Tom Rice (R-SC), Congressman Pete Hoekstra (ret.), Democratic strategist Pat Caddell and Andrzejewski spoke to a group of 300. 
At, we've posted online 1 billion lines of government spending. What have we found? 
  • Big government is subsidizing big corporations. 
  • Farm subsidies paid to "urban" farmers.
  • Government spreading wealth to the wealthy.
  • Even media "journalists" paid with tax dollars.
  • Illinois's #1 manufactured product is corruption. 
The next morning in South Carolina's capitol city on local FOX TV, Andrzejewski exposed local spending. Here are the highlights of the Good Day- Columbia program:

Gov. Nikki Haley's salary is only $106,078 (41/50 states). But... 
  • Two state pension "investment managers" collectively "earned" $1 million
  • 15 local City of Columbia employees- including a PR Director- out-earned the state governor.
  • $16,000 "Cosmetology College" tuition is subsidized by millions in Federal Pell grants & loans.

    And more... Watch the video to find out what Andrzejewski revealed regarding the South Carolina Gamecocks football coach- Steve Spurrier's compensation.

Democratic strategist Pat Caddell was right- the country is corrupt from top to bottom.  It's up to all of us to stop the "legal, but stupid spending."
