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."
Tommy Pope received a score of 20% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 70th out of all 124 South Carolina House of Representatives members. His score was followed by representatives Ronnie Sabb (20%), James E. Smith, Jr. (20%), and Lawrence Kit Spires (20%).
Pope is married to Kimberly Greenwood. They have four children -- Logan, Jacob, Preston and Kaylen.
