FORMER STATE TREASURER TALKS EXCLUSIVELY TO FITSNEWS
FITSNews – March 15, 2008 – In his only public comments since being sentenced yesterday to ten months in a federal prison on drug charges, former State Treasurer Thomas Ravenel spoke exclusively with FITSNews this morning.
“I accept it,” Ravenel said when asked about his 10-month sentence. “I want everybody to know I’ve accepted it.”
In his brief conversation with our founding editor Sic Willie – who advised Ravenel during his successful 2006 campaign – the former Treasurer spoke mostly about his family and friends in a calm, even voice, thanking them for their support and reiterating his courtroom promise to “make amends” for his misbehavior. Ravenel also said he wouldn’t be granting any media interviews anytime soon, but that he did look forward to talking to the pressÂ about his experiences when the time was right.
