As The Trenches reported last night, an anonymous young woman, we’ll call her woman #1, stated that Todd Kincannon had sent her pictures of his penis. Todd is an attorney and former South Carolina GOP Executive Director.
The Trenches are also in receipt of information from another young woman, woman #2, who claims that Mr. Kincannon solicited nude pictures from her. She also claims that she didn’t oblige those requests.
Here are some of text messages woman #2 shared which she alleges are of a text chat with Kincannon. The texts between the two appear to have started June 30, 2012 – almost 6 months after the email we published from woman #1 yesterday. Looks like a long-term pattern. For a conservative man with very public political aspirations, and a fiancé, this would be some very inappropriate behavior.
This looks like woman #2 is being solicited for a “fun” picture. We know what that means, and if there’s any doubt, scroll down to see what “fun” really means.
Why would an engaged man who’s representing political cases for the GOP and regularly appearing on his local Fox TV channel as a legal expert, ask a woman if she’d ever had aggressive sex in public?
And finally, there’s this text the next day, July 1, 2012, where woman #2 is asked for “naughty” pictures. Someone’s definition of fun, eh?
Does the smiley face make it a request instead of a demand? Ladies, care to chime in and provide some insight?
After our initial report, there were concerns by some people that Todd Kincannon was being setup or entrapped by political foes. However, if these texts are from Todd, they would indicate that he’s not being setup, but is soliciting nude pictures of young women that he doesn’t know of his own accord. Public figures should be held to a higher standard, right? Todd certainly thought so in his tweet about Anthony Weiner that we highlighted in our post yesterday.
I’m typically a very skeptical person, but this situation doesn’t look good. Does the conservative movement have its very own Anthony Weiner? There were plenty of Weiner jokes at that time. Is it time to break out the Rod Kink Cannon jokes, or is it too early?
To date, Mr. Kincannon hasn’t responded to any of our inquiries about this situation. We’ll let you know if he responds.
