Mount Pleasant, SC 29466
Dave Schwartz, President
I’m a Christ-follower, a patriotic American, and an unapologetic conservative. After seeing up-
close and personal how corrupt politicians run for office as conservatives, but vote like liberals in
the Statehouse and make money on our backs, I wanted to find a way to fight back. That’s why I
started FAN of SC in March 2017 – to give my fellow South Carolinians the tools to hold their
politicians accountable and take control of our government.
I can be heard every Wednesday on the Bob McLain Radio Show’s (WORD 106.3FM - Greenville) “Statehouse Watchdog” segment and every Monday on The Afternoon Drive with Keven Cohen (WQXL 100.7FM - Columbia). I’ve been interviewed on Fox, NBC, CBS, in USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.
One of the highlights of confronting my government: when Corrupt Hugh Leatherman, the most
powerful and corrupt politician in the state, personally attacked me on the floor of the Senate
after I alerted activists around the state about his bill to legalize corruption and restrict our right
to free speech.
My wife Casey and I live in Mount Pleasant and are proud parents of three children: Darby, Delaney, and Caleb.
