By AP

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) _ South Carolina House Speaker Bobby Harrell is again calling on the attorney general to immediately release a state police review of ethics allegations against Harrell
 
   He repeated his request Tuesday, shortly before the opening of the 2014 legislative session.
 
   Attorney General Alan Wilson handed over his review of ethics allegations against Harrell to the State Grand Jury on Monday. The announcement came a month after the state's chief prosecutor received the report from the State Law Enforcement Division.
 
   Wilson had asked SLED last February to review allegations brought by a libertarian group. Wilson's office said it would be illegal to release the report.
 
   Harrell calls the complaint a baseless attack and smear campaign. The Charleston Republican says he was shocked by Wilson's decision. Harrell repeated that he's done nothing wrong.
