Ethics Complaint Filed Against Upstate Senator



|| By FITSNEWS || A South Carolina State Senator with a history of tax problems is the subject of an ethics compliant filed this week by a resident of Greenville, S.C.

According to the complaint – filed by Shielder E. Pressley – S.C. Senator Karl Allen of Greenville, S.C. conspired with local real estate agent (and former state lawmaker) Ennis Fant to allow a property to go into foreclosure.  The property was then purchased out of foreclosure by Sarah Fant, the agent’s wife.

Pressley resides at the property in question, and alleges Allen has been trying to evict her.

In addition to “mortgage fraud” and “conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud,” Pressley alleges in her complaint (.pdf here) that Allen also lied in an October 2014 deposition about his relationship with the Fants.

Pressley said she filed the complaint because Allen is manipulating the law and negatively affecting her “residential status” and “credit status.”
