Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer’s Chief of Staff is reportedly resigning in the wake of the scandal surrounding his involvement in Senior Scam … err, Senior Shield, a callous attempt to use state resources for personal financial gain.

Jim Miles, who served as South Carolina’s Secretary of State for eight years, has been dogged by criticism over his role in the scandal, which you can read all about here and here.

Now if we can just get SCGOP Chairperson Karen Floyd – who profited the most from this scam – to resign her role.

Oh that’s right, Republicans haven’t elected Floyd chairperson (yet).

Anyway, according to the website Palmetto Scoop, Miles resignation could come as soon as next week.
