Former Party Chair of the South Carolina Republican Party, Todd Kincannon, says that a drug he’s been taking all month suddenly made him go all nuts and abuse his wife.

His wife says, “Hold on there, cowboy.”

Todd Kincannon, a Columbia attorney and former executive director of the S.C. Republican Party, has been accused of threatening his wife and refusing to let her out of his car Thursday night, according to a report from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.…

The officer then spoke with Kincannon’s wife, Ashely Suzanne Griffith, who said that they “have a history of unreported domestic violence.” She said she was “extremely fearful” of Kincannon and described him as being “extremely ‘traditional’ and controlling, thus becoming very upset due to embarrassing him,” according to the report.

She also says that her husband “is very controlling” and has threaten to kill her, her family, and himself in the past. A Republican man who is very controlling? I’m shocked, just shocked I tell you.

Kincannon blames the drug Benzonatate for his behavior. He says that he’s been taking it for a cough since March 5th but this time he chewed it and that caused him to overdose. He added, “You’d think a guy with my IQ would know better.”

No, Honey, I think exactly the opposite.
