Three members of the troubled Greenville Disabilities and Special Needs Board have resigned, two of them citing harassment by board Chairwoman Roxie Kincannon and her son, Columbia lawyer Todd Kincannon, in their letters of resignation.

Maureen Kriese and former board secretary Judith Gibson resigned on May 2; Maggi Bailey filed her resignation on May 3.

Roxie and Todd Kincannon visited the Journal’s offices on Wednesday for a two-hour session to discuss the resignation letters, allegations of harassment and the state of the agency since the firing of former executive director Brent Parker and hiring of Patrick Haddon as interim director.

The two also discussed dozens of Freedom of Information requests Todd Kincannon said he filed with county DSN boards around the state in the name of state Rep. Eric Bikas, demanding years of information concerning Chris Clark, author of a critical audit and management letter directed at the Greenville DSN board. Additionally, Kincannon filed FOIs for information on former GCDSN director Brent Parker, former board member Kriese and others.

Kincannon said he filed the requests to give Clark and others a taste of “what it feels like” to come under pressure over actions taken during the past couple of years and to correct errors he said were contained in Clark’s October 2011 management letter. He also said he anticipates filing legal actions for his clients: Roxie Kincannon, former board Chairwoman Connie Holmes and board member Vena Lease.

The resignation letters of Gibson and Bailey were provided to the Journal by county officials.

In her resignation letter to Gov. Nikki Haley, Bailey wrote:

“Recently, members of the Board have taken actions that may violate South Carolina’s Freedom of Information Act and have created substantial conflict within the Board itself and between the Organization and its clients.  As a result, I and other members of the Board who have objected to these activities have been subjected to intimidation and have not been provided with the information necessary to responsibly carry out our duties.

“Due to this conflict, intimidation, and lack of openness by the Board’s leadership and the organization’s management and the conflict with the parents and family members of those consumers served by GCDSNB, I do not believe that the consumers are being afforded the advocacy and protections they deserve.”

In addition to her resignation letter to Gov. Haley, Gibson wrote a letter dated May 2 to Beverly Buscemi, director of the state Department of Disabilities and Special Needs, saying:

“In my opinion there is little need for me to continue on this board because any and all decisions and actions are made by Roxie Kincannon and her friends and family. She brought in her good friend to be Chair of the Nursing Practices & Policies Committee, a committee recently created by Roxie herself acting alone. Then Roxie attempted to get the board’s approval to hire this friend at an exorbitant salary as Assistant Executive Director, a position which does not exist. Roxie unilaterally provided the board with an Interim Executive Director, Patrick Haddon, who she has attempted to have hired on a permanent basis without a proper job search. These actions were taken by providing a surprised board with scripts to follow (copies enclosed) in lieu of the proposed agenda.”

Gibson continued, “But by far the most disturbing thing to me is the involvement of Roxie Kincannon’s son Todd, a lawyer, who is now attending most if not all committee and board meetings. His influence can readily be seen in the flurry of ‘Chairman’s Rulings’ issued between February 20 and February 29, 2012, which she has asked be attached to the board minutes. I find Todd’s behavior threatening to members of the board and to the families in the audience. It is my understanding he has caused one board member to be subjected to harassing orders to provide years of emails and also records pertaining to her employment. This employment has nothing to do with GCDSNB. He has frightened clients’ family members with veiled threats of legal action and demands for personal emails.”

A spokeswoman for Buscemi said the state DDSN had received Gibson’s letter and attachments on Tuesday but had no further comment.

Gov. Nikki Haley has not commented directly to the Journal on the DSN controversy. However, at a question and answer session at a Greenville Rotary luncheon Wednesday, she said, “It sounds like you have a problem up here in the Upstate with some disabilities issues, (and) we are working closely with (County Council) on that to see what needs to be done to correct that problem.”

Todd Kincannon told the Journal he filed FOI requests for board member Maureen Kriese’s entire email account with Spartanburg School District 5 “because she uses the District 5 account to conduct board business.”

He said, “I’ll tell you one thing, there are no veiled threats of legal action. The threats of legal action are very explicit and they are going to continue as long as people are defaming innocent folks … I did not bully anyone. Have I threatened people with lawsuits? Absolutely. I have threatened people who have defamed my family and my clients with lawsuits. There is nothing wrong with threatening actionable defamation with a defamation lawsuit. That’s what lawyers are for.”

Roxie Kincannon told the Journal she acted quickly to hire Haddon because the DSN agency was in dire straits after firing former director Parker and could not afford to wait to get a new director in place. She said she had known Haddon for years and knew he had considerable financial experience. “I know him and he has the skills and talents that we need to help turn things around,” she said.

The scripts mentioned by Gibson in her letter to Buscemi were suggested by Todd Kincannon to his mother in an attempt to help her bring unruly meetings into a semblance of order, he said.

“No one was required to follow the scripts,” Roxie Kincannon said. “And they were not distributed until just before each meeting.”

Todd Kincannon told the Journal the FOI requests filed in regard to auditor Chris Clark were both in preparation for a May 15 County Council meeting scheduled with the DSN and to correct errors in Clark’s October management letter.

He said Clark criticized the DSN board for actions Clark had himself urged the board to take 18 months earlier in a “general practices” seminar. In an April 29 email to Clark, Kincannon wrote: “Withdraw your management letter to the GCDSNB that has created these problems. Send a letter to the GCDSNB explaining that potential problems with the factual basis of the letter have been brought to your attention, that you wish to investigate them and correct them if need be, and that you will re-issue a management letter after fully investigating the matters.”

Within days of receipt of that email, Clark withdrew his management letter and issued a new one and Kincannon dropped his FOI requests.

In his new management letter, Clark acknowledged that the board was acting on his advice, given 18 months earlier during a training session, when they voted to increase then executive director Parker’s authority to execute contracts without board approval from $15,000 to $75,000.

Kincannon said he sought Rep. Bikas’ help with the FOI requests because the issues involved Bikas’ constituency. Bikas, who has not attended a legislative session since early January, told the Journal last week he became involved because he wanted to help his friend Todd get to the bottom of the issues surrounding the DSN board. He was not aware of what the issues actually are.

Contacted by the Journal, South Carolina House Speaker Bobby Harrell said Wednesday, “It is totally inappropriate for Rep. Bikas to allow anyone to use his name to make FOIA requests unless he has an intention to use the information to perform his duties as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives. Since he has not attended a legislative session since January, it is highly unlikely that he plans to use any information that has been or will be gathered in his name.”

Defamed Citizen  - Todd's Hate of Non-WASPs   |2012-05-11 06:14:09
I would agree with the previous posters. Todd really hates anyone and everyone
who is not a white male. His twitter feed is a rampant, disgusting rampage
against women, American Indians, gay people, all people of color, and
essentially anyone who disagrees with his moral or political views. He thinks he
can say any hateful, racist, misogynistic remark he wants, and then just claim
it's a joke or "satire." How the SC Bar Association continues to allow
this cretin to practice is amazing. He should be disbarred. His character is a
black mark on the legal profession.

Concerned Citizen  - Why is Todd involved anyway?   |2012-05-11 06:35:51
Todd Kincannon has no standing other than being Roxie's son. The GCDSNB Board
has an attorney on retainer getting a monthly fee. Oh, wait - the attorney is
the husband of the Connie Holmes who was a highly paid consultant following her
resignation as Board Chair. Hmm, conflict of interest?
Disbeliever  - Who's kidding who?   |2012-05-11 07:07:33
"The agency was in dire straits after firing Brent Parker" and couldn't
wait to hire another Executive Director Roxie stated. Parker was fired Thursday
night and Haddon showed up at 7 a.m. on Friday morning with Roxie & another
board member who introduced him as the new ED. Obviously this was all in place
prior to Parker's firing. Too bad she forgot to let the other Board members in
on her plan. Facts are facts - not defamation.

Isn't there another conflict of interest if Todd Kincannon is friends with
Patrick Haddon? Isn't that a little suspicious too? It amazes me that a man like
Todd Kincannon can still be in good standing with the SC Bar Association, if
anyone looks at his Twitter page it is nothing but racial/sexual harassment.

have changed, and so have my views. The question remained, however, what was
causing global warming. That question remained until now. Todd Kincannon and his
mother blowing hot air is the direct cause of global warming. Todd blows hot air
on Twitter to the tune of 50,000+ tweets, and he and his mommy blow hot air at
local board meetings to the point of causing people to resign as a result of the
harassment they suffer. These two must be stopped. Our planet's health depends

disreputable, and pathetic to practice before its honorable courts? Can you? I

Here's a hint  - The reason for the scripts   |2012-05-11 10:24:43
The real reason Roxie had to start using scripts is because she can't express
herself without contempt and venom at anyone who disagrees with her or tries to
insert sanity into the Board meetings. It was only after she became Chair that a
lawyer had to be present at the meetings b/c she doesn't know how to run a
meeting. See that dumb look on her face in the picture? That's her usual
expression. The acorn & tree...
Glad to hear  - Finally   |2012-05-11 10:29:41
When the first 4 members of the Board resigned after Parker's abrupt firing,
Roxie called them the "troublemakers" who the board is better off
without. Now two of Roxie's minions have finally seen the woman for the
power-hungry, out of control woman for what she is. If only the remaining
members will wake up and resign also. The agency was on its way to break even
when Roxie abruptly fired Parker. Finances had NOTHING to do with his firing.

It's sickening to think Haddon is getting credit for the hard work done since

money. Staffing was drastically cut back, salaried employees were working 2-3
positions without compensation. They have terminated employees with years of

I'm a disabled Native-American lesbian who frequently relies on the assistance
of the GCDSN and its Board to provide me with the things I need to make my life
easier. I started looking into why Todd and his mother might be working so hard
to destroy the board and cause people like me to suffer. Well, first things
first I went to Todd's Twitter page to see if I could learn anything. I was
shocked and appalled to see his frequent ravings attacking women, gays, native
Americans, blacks, and literally any minority group you can imagine. Well,
suffice it to say, it is clear why Todd would girthily sit alongside his mother
and destroy this board. He is an awful human being. Also, he accused the author
of this article of supporting child pornography in an attempt to stop Mr.

citing that a male on male would be much worse than female on male. Somehow I
thought the issue was abuse. I must have been mistaken.

Racism runs rampage in the agency. Look at the new QA Director, a personal
friend of Haddon's and another one with no prior experience. It is truly sad
that the attention that is really needed is inside of those residences.
Consumers are dressed poorly, their food is horrible and unhealthy. Nurses
haven't a clue about their medications and side effects. It is a travasty that
those that cannot care for themselves have to depend on people with no
experience in consumer care, poor training is given to the staff when they are
initially hired. This agency needs to be revamped from the top to the bottom.
Gov. Haley won't do anything because Haddon is one of her puppies. Roxie should
be put out to pasture along with her son who should be disbarred. HADDON AND HIS

and depending on who is involved determines wheter or not it is reported to SLED

The agency is in a financial crisis and severe shortage in direct care staff and

I am shocked and saddened to read what is coming out of Greenville SC concerning
GCDSN. Mr. Todd Kincannon should be brought up on legal charges immediately for
abusing his power as a lawyer. He has no standing at those meetings and from his
own mouth admits to the harassment alleged by other board members. Ms. Kincannon
should be removed along with her friends and barred from any position of
authority paid or volunteer in the near future. Rep. Eric Bikas should also be
reprimanded for allowing Todd Kincannon to use his name for anything. this is
nothing but authority run a muck. The people with disabilities and their
families are suffering at the hands of these thugs. I am appalled to read that

Want to know the real truth why there are so many medication errors? It is
because the nursing staff has been cut down to bare bones and a third party
agency has been hired to fill in for coverage. These nurses have no training
with our specific clients and no corrective action cannot be taken with them
because they do not work for us, we are just contracted with them. The simple
fact is that there needs to be more nurses and Patrick Haddon, Roxi Kincannon

Late then never.

Budget cuts to direct care staff followed, then grocery and
finally huge cuts in the nursing department. The medication errors that the
Interim ED is speaking about from 2008 are not even medication errors that were
from nursing department. These are medication errors made by medication
technicians in houses that do not require nursing on a daily basis. In fact one
of the positions that was eliminated was created a few years ago as a solution
to these problems as a an of correction.

Medication Technicians were given the ability to pass medication in facilities
that are not intermediate or skilled care such as assisted living facilities,
community training homes (CTHs), etc...through a waiver from the SC Board of
Nursing....supposedly there is a shortage of nurses...hmmmm. These medication
techs have minimal training and are passing medication and administering
scheduled insulin...although they cannot give sliding scale insulin... (Skilled
and Acute care nursing requires 2 nurses to verify insulin has been pulled from
the correct vial and the correct dose has been pulled for administration.) Do we
expect non-licensed staff not make errors??? Nurses are required to take a whole
semester of pharmacology and several classes on giving medication and injections
before they are allowed to give meds and injections with an instructor present.
GCDSNB actually has or had one of the better medication technician classes...

Numerous other extremely important positions have either been eliminated or the
employees that held that potition have been abruptly fired. Meaning that even
that employees own boss did nor know the reason they were terminated. All of the
position as stated previously in earlier posts have been filled with personal
friends of the new ED. And yes these people do not have the qualifications
needed for these positions. In addition it seems that these new employees do not
have to attend mandatory training as all of the other employees in the agency
do. What we have now is a group of individuals that do not have to follow any
policies at all. In addition the positions were either never posted or were not
interviewed for.

caring for them absolutely miserable. Wake up Gov. Haley!! Get rid of the whole
lot! The staff at GCDSNB really cares. Connie Holmes is no expert or consultant.

Having a nursing license does not make a nurse qualified to be a consultant. If
they really need a consultant, they should advertise and get a qualified person!
