Bolton: Richland lawmakers should take blame for voting mess

If those calling for Richland County’s voter registration and elections director to resign over Tuesday’s voting debacle are justified — and they just may be — then what should happen to the lawmakers who shoved her into a position she apparently wasn’t ready for in the first place? The buck ultimately stops with Richland County legislators, some of whom have declared they’re going to get to the bottom of this mess in a hearing next week. I hope they’re prepared to look in the mirror.
