Those Columbus County good ol boys sure do not want Mr. David as DA. The entire defense bar politicked for Rex Gore then later for Butch Pope. So it does not surprise me that this lawyer's newspaper is trashing the new DA. And who is this Chris Batten to comment? He has made all sorts of comments since going into office, some even racist. Since getting caught with his slanderous comments and being sued he often says one thing in public and another at the county diner. So this too is no surprise that he got caught running his mouth. You have to know a little about Columbus County to understand Chris Batten. It is all bad. Batten is a name not thought highly of and the only reason he got sheriff was that Jeff Etheridge, the local banker through a lot of money out, as did RC Soles, Mitchell Tyler and Rhone Sasser, a past banker. And it also helped that the sitting sheriff, Ferguson had lost touch with everyone. Any time someone runs against Batten, the Highs with the News Reporter (some other supporters) will run a trash story in favor of Batten and against his opponent. It is all bad in Columbus County.
