Columbia, SC – State Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter (D-Orangeburg) filed a letter with the House Ethics Committee on Wednesday asking for an advisory opinion on whether or not it is appropriate for a member of the South Carolina General Assembly to access the state plane to transport subcommittee witnesses, and if it is appropriate to receive compensation to provide testimony to a legislative subcommittee without registering as a lobbyist. The questions were prompted by the news of Representative Bill Chumley authorizing the use of the state plane to transport a well-known Tea Party radio host from Washington, DC for testimony in favor of the Obamacare Nullification bill.
