The S.C. House Ethics Committee will hold a hearing Tuesday in the case of Rep. Harold Mitchell, a Spartanburg Democrat.
The 10-member committee decided in February that it needed more time to review a case against Mitchell, accusing him of misusing campaign money. The allegations came about while Mitchell was under investigation in 2011 for tax evasion. Mitchell pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of not filing his 2007 and 2008 taxes on time, the Associated Press reported.
Bruce Byrholdt, Mitchell's attorney, said Monday that he has not seen the information the House Ethics Committee will bring forward Tuesday.
In February, Byrholdt said Mitchell was only guilty of poor accounting and helping a family displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
