Dear Friend,

On Wednesday I received an award that was meant for YOU. The “Friend of the Taxpayer Award” is yours, not mine, because you elected me and I am your employee. Without your continued support, my staff and I could never have accomplished so much.

Your strong commitment to transparency and accountability has allowed me to fight fraud, waste, and abuse. It has allowed me effect real change in state government by refinancing debt, renegotiating contracts, and demanding tougher and more frequent audits.

Your support, both morally and financially, allows me to ask the tough questions that make a lot of people uncomfortable. And believe me, a LOT of people are uncomfortable. The special interest insiders are up in arms about my efforts to use transparency and accountability to rein in their shady practices. But I don’t care about them because I work for you!

Bringing transparency and accountability to state government will save taxpayers billions of dollars over the coming years and ensure the solvency of South Carolina’s treasury.

Will you join me in continuing this fight? Donate $25 or more, and together we can reform state government. I need your help and hope you can assist me today.
