The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier is confirming our exclusive report regarding a criminal investigation into one of the S.C. General Assembly’s most powerful (and corrupt) leaders.
Last week, FITS reported that S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse (RINO-Charleston) was being investigated by the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) regarding “aviation contract issues” tied to his seat on the board of the Charleston International Airport.
“Limehouse – who was trounced in his bid for the U.S. Congress earlier this year – is accused of pushing contracts between the airport and ‘companies he was purportedly tied to,'” we reported.
According to the Post and Courier report, Limehouse has been accused of accepting campaign donations from companies which later received business from the airport. In fact the airport’s former director – Sue Stevens – claims she saw Limehouse carrying around a $1,000 campaign check received from an airport vendor.
Limehouse – who is close friends with the Post and Courier‘s publisher – professed his innocence.
“At the end of the day the investigation is not going to find any wrongdoing with any airport officials, past or present,” Limehouse told the paper. “It’s much ado about nothing.”
