“CULTURE OF CORRUPTION IN SOUTH CAROLINA HAS TO STOP”
Columbia, SC – The South Carolina Democratic Party released this statement from Chairman Jaime Harrison today following the indictment of Speaker Bobby Harrell:
“The Grand Jury and prosecutor have made the decision to move forward with charges against Speaker Bobby Harrell, and while the cases are pending the Speaker should resign from his role as Speaker of the House of Representatives and abide by state law as it relates to his suspension from the House of Representatives.
“This culture of corruption in South Carolina has to stop. Leaders on both sides of the aisle must be held accountable for ethical wrongdoing. Elected officials who break the law hurt the reputation of our great state and feed into the general mistrust of the state government. We can begin to rebuild the people’s faith in their government, but for that it takes honest leadership.”
