The Palmetto Liberty PAC Scorecard
The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee, a conservative pro-limited government think tank in South Carolina, releases its Scorecard for South Carolina Representatives and Senators once a year. The Scorecard gives each a legislator a score based on how they voted in the two-year legislative term prior to the election on specific issues which the Palametto Liberty PAC thought were anti-limited government. "Most of the votes shown on the score card are votes that we lost. Now we can identify the Legislators that caused us to lose these votes. These Legislators are the ones who need to be replaced if we are to achieve the vision of having the most free state in the nation."
David Mack received a score of 7% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 117th out of all 124 South Carolina House of Representatives members. His score was followed by representatives Joseph H. Neal (7%), Julia Parks (7%), and James Rutherford (7%).
In August 2012 the The Post and Courier of Charleston revealed that in September 2011, a dozen legislators used $10,000 in taxpayer funds for a conference held at the Charleston Place Hotel. Speaker Bobby Harrell (R), the event's official host, defended the expenditures, saying "the overall impact for the Charleston economy and the image of our community to leaders around the country was huge." Harrell's personal tab for his stay at the hotel came in at $1,519, while Mack's was $560.
When asked about the expenditures, Mack said that he didn't see a a problem, and offered that it was valuable because "You’ve got speakers from around the country. You’ve got legislators from around the country. Just the sharing of ideas makes for a better situation for gathering information and doing our jobs."
Mack and his wife, Sheryl Ann, have three children.
