South Carolina activists who boosted Clinton in 2016 throw support behind Kamala Harris

COLUMBIA — In 2016, former Richland County councilwoman Bernice Scott and her “Reckoning Crew” of local activists worked around the clock to ensure Hillary Clinton won the state’s Democratic presidential primary.

This time, the group of hyper-active volunteers — predominantly African American women — are throwing their support behind U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, offering the California Democrat a valuable leg up as she looks to make inroads with one of the most influential demographics in this early-voting state.

Scott formed the group about 35 years ago as a way to keep residents of more rural parts of Richland County informed about issues affecting them in county government and to assist them with technical challenges like signing up for food stamps or paying their taxes.

With about 30 active members now, the group’s only requirement to join is a willingness to fully devote themselves to community service — from going out in the rain to spread information, to cleaning up the local school house, to delivering food from charities to residents who need it.
