|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley has suspended the mayor of Lyman, S.C. in the aftermath of his indictment last week on two criminal counts – misconduct in office and wiretapping.

Lyman mayor Rodney Turner was arrested earlier this month on those charges – which sources tell FITS stem from our exclusive reporting on the alleged illegal dumping of polychlorinated biphenyls (or PCBs) in sewage systems along the Interstate 85 corridor in Charlotte, Spartanburg, Greenville and Lyman.

That investigation – a joint effort of the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – is ongoing.

To view Haley’s executive order suspending Turner, click here …

South Carolina governors are constitutionally empowered to suspend state and local elected officials in the event they are indicted on crimes of “moral turpitude.”  Turner’s suspension lasts until he is either acquitted or convicted of the crimes leveled against him.

As with any American accused of committing a crime, Turner is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

“Illegal Dumping,” sounds like something you do when you are out camping the woods.
Is there such a thing as “Illegal wiping.?”

Recently scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that
100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, couldn’t drive, and refused to apologize when wrong. No further testing is planned.
