Speaker Of The House Re:Ethics Complaints


By Eric Weisfeld

Columbia, SC (WOLO)- The Speaker Of The House does not want the state's top attorney investigating ethics complaints against him.
Speaker Bobby Harrell's Chief Of Staff testified today that Wilson threatened the speaker during a meeting last year if he refused to support legislation dealing with a public integrity unit.
The state grand jury is considering the south carolina policy council's allegations that Harrell used his position for personal gain.
