Berlin Mayoral Hopeful On Prescription Drug Charge: ‘It’s Very Unfortunate That We Have Lowered Ourselves To This Level Of Campaigning’

BERLIN – A mayoral candidate in Berlin’s coming election shared her side of the story this week following news of a drug possession charge.

According to South Carolina’s online judiciary case search, Berlin Councilmember Lisa Hall was charged with possession of the drug flunitrazepam on April 29. She says it’s being brought up now, months after it happened, because the town’s election is next week. Hall is running for mayor against incumbent Gee Williams.

“It’s very unfortunate that we have lowered ourselves to this level of campaigning,” she said. “I have purposely been taking the high road.”

Local media outlets were provided with a copy of court documents related to the charge with an anonymous letter this week encouraging the press to dig into Hall’s background.

Very sad. I believe her story. Foolish of her to have had her husbands meds in her car. I could see this happening to me because my wife sometimes has her blood pressure meds in my car when uses it. It's no wonder we can't get enough good quality people to run for office. They will try to dig any dirt they can on you. Anything you do or say now is public record and they go back to the beginning of time to try and destroy you!

I believe her also that is what the drug is used for in some circumstances. I ride around with Xanax in my purse so would I also be charged if stopped?

It's an insomnia drug, so what?

Flunitrazepam, also known as Rohypnol among others, is an intermediate acting benzodiazepine used in some countries to treat severe insomnia and in fewer, early in anesthesia. Wikipedia

Rohypnol is not approved for medical use or manufactured in the United States and is not available legally. However, it is legally prescribed in over 60 other countries and is widely available in Mexico, Colombia, and Europe where it is used for the treatment of insomnia and as a pre-anesthetic.

This is how gee operates. He is a former media person and still has connectionsome. Anything that doesn't go his way he gets the media to put his spin on things. Ever been at a town meeting when someone questions something he supports he cuts th r m down and shuts them off quickly and loses his temper. Look at many of his articles most times it contains some smart remark or curse word. Most photos have him around or holding an alcoholic beverage. We need someone who will stop all these back door deals. Rumors have it he is just waiting to hire the Tyndall candidate for a town job.

At least gee stands up to the trash in the Berlin Fire company. He saw right through the Trimble's, Holloway's and Fitzgerald, and stood for us, the citizens! I'll take him any day!

5:25 I've heard he's a drunk. He looks like one. Always has that red face going. I've heard him speak. The word halfwit comes to mind as well as crude and vulgar. He's definitely of a lower class type so what you say isn't surprising.

Something tells me this has Gee Williams dirty finger prints all over this.

Is Gee Williams who you really want for your elected representative??

Gee Williams is a filthy, dirty Democrat who has stooped so low just like his idol Hitler Clinton just to win a small town election.

She should have never been charged. It was in a bottle and had her husbands name on it. Shame on SC LEO!

I'm sure he knows what that has been used for. It is not a rape drug but it may have been used for that.

But seriously do you see her wanting to rape someone?? Get a life Gee Williams!

Gee Williams got fired from his job at the State of Maryland because he got caught as a Dirty Democrat trying to screw with then Governor Bob Ehrlich.

6:32 You should be a comedian or a least a speech writer for Clinton. You failed to point out this info: "Rohypnol's sedative effects are approximately 7 to 10 times stronger than Valium". To say it is nothing more than everyday Valium is an out and out lie. Not to mention that Valium is a major legal drug of abuse. Also why not question why her bags were checked for a simple speeding traffic stop? How many times have you been pulled over for speeding and had your bags checked? Much more to this story than what the lady or the reporter is saying.

By the way I am not from Berlin and don't know either of the participants in this story(for that matter don't care who becomes Mayor). Matter of fact have only been to Berlin about 10 times in my life even though I lived in OC for over 20 years. Just read the story and thought the lady's excuse sounded like something out of the mouth of Clinton.

I actually feel sorry for the people of Berlin to have such poor choices to run their town. One thing I've learned from these comments is there are a lot of people that hate Gee Williams(or at least 1). Also I wrote the 4:48 & 4:50 comments to show the truth behind the lies of some of the apologist comments such as yours.

Gee Williams has filed Bankruptcy and it should be pointed out!! He is not worthy of being a Mayor. He was once a Butt Buddy of Jim Ireton's so we have 2 pee's in a pod.

No Sh!t Sherlock!! Any sedative can be used as a date rape drug. Just ask Bill Cosby. Do you really think the council woman or her husband had and plans to use it as a date rape drug? Get real! As she said it was prescribed for insomnia and guess what? I have the same script!

10:42.....that's it tell them to shut up just because they don't live in Berlin. Who cares where someone lives as long as the truth comes out

1. Rohypnol is specifically called "The Date Rape Drug."
2. It was prescribed for her husband not her. Use/possession of another persons controlled substance is against the law and is punishable by jail time.
3. Rohypnol is not approved for medical use or manufactured in the United States and is not available legally. If you have a scrip for this then you are in possession of an illegal controlled substance and belong in jail.
4. A script is something you read from for a play,show, or speech.
5. Since you know so much, tell me why the police were searching through her bags?

10:42 Grow up. Since when is pointing out the truth or discrepancies wrong. Sounds to me that there are a lot of Lisa Hall apologists on here. Seems to me that some reporters should be looking into her background. She might have been stopped for speeding, but a $350 fine is not a speeding ticket. Although a death of a spouse is a traumatic event, running away with a bunch of drugs is not a proper way to cope.

12:48 Thanks. If I lived and voted in Berlin I would be seeking a write in candidate to put on my ballot.

Gee Williams has a lot of run-ins with the law and that needs to be addressed to the public. He needs to be outed like he did the Council Woman.

If a person stoops so low to claim this woman is a criminal then he is afraid. He needs to be put out of office.

Can a person with a criminal history and Bankruptcies under his belt is that who you want running "America's Coolest Little Town?"

Wrong loser. I don't even live in Berlin or know any of the participants. I only commented because the whole thing sounds fishy to me.
