Sunday letters: Tax misused campaign funds

March 2, 2014 

— Thank you to Associate Editor Cindi Ross Scoppe for keeping the pressure on South Carolina’s government to reform our ethics law. Not only should the attorney general stay involved but also the state and federal directors of revenue should require proof of why misused campaign funds should not be taxed to the miscreant politician at the highest level of taxation.

I will not vote for even purported ethics violators, and hope honest South Carolinians in other districts also will not vote for them.
