#ProbeGate: Alan Wilson Melts Down

… ANGRY OBSTRUCTION IN S.C. STATE HOUSE PROBE

With his political career on the line – along with the careers of multiple state lawmakers facing likely criminal corruption charges – S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson angrily addressed reporters Wednesday regarding allegations that he has obstructed an ongoing probe into public corruption at the S.C. State House.

Oddly enough, though, Wilson’s press event may have been intended to further this obstructionism by tainting the evidence that’s been collected against multiple sitting lawmakers (many of whom are reportedly in his political orbit – a.k.a. the political stable of neo-Confederate consultant Richard Quinn).

Of interest, Wilson was joined at his press conference by Henry McMaster and Charlie Condon, a pair of former attorneys general who also received their political counsel from Quinn.

To briefly recap the situation: Wilson recused himself from this investigation into legislative corruption last summer – claiming he was “conflicted.”  He never explained his conflicts, however, he simply handed the case off to S.C. first circuit solicitor David Pascoe – who previously presided over the successful prosecution of former S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell when Wilson recused himself in that case, too.

Wilson didn’t stay “recused” for long in the current case, though …

Last December, his office quietly released an advisory opinion (obtained exclusively by this website) in which he advised Pascoe that several angles of potential prosecution against sitting members of the S.C. General Assembly were unlikely to yield indictments.

That opinion finally drew media attention to the fact that Wilson’s involvement in the ongoing investigation wasn’t exactly on the up-and-up.

DAVID PASCOE
DAVID PASCOE

This week, all hell broke loose.  First, it was revealed that Wilson was blocking the empaneling of a grand jury requested by Pascoe and the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) – presumably to keep this grand jury from issuing indictments of sitting lawmakers.

When news of Wilson’s obstruction became public – he fired Pascoe.  Next, he attempted to appoint another solicitor to take the case – but that official, S.C. fifth circuit solicitor Dan Johnson, declined to take the case citing the swirling controversy.

Wilson claimed he reentered the case out of a sense of duty.

“I cannot recuse myself from my statutory obligations to administer the state grand jury act,” he said at his press conference.

Wilson then proceeded to refer to Pascoe (repeatedly) as “tainted” – but never explained why.

Which may have been the point …

“Wilson has effectively precluded a prosecution now by calling Pascoe ‘tainted,'” one attorney explained.  “He’s cast doubt on any evidence uncovered.  In essence, he’s knowingly tainted any evidence by calling the prosecutor out.”

Yet to be determined?  Whether Wilson has the power to intervene in this case at all …

“Wilson delegated the powers of the attorney general to solicitor David Pascoe without reservation,” one former state judge told us.  “That delegation of authority necessarily included the power to take the case before the state grand jury.  Pascoe stood in the shoes of the attorney general and therefore could sign as attorney general to empanel the state grand jury.”

“Wilson’s argument that only HE could approve empaneling is specious; e.g., that would necessitate his reviewing the FACTS supporting a statewide Grand Jury, and he recused himself because of an appearance of impropriety in 2014!” the judge added.  “He can’t review and make a decision now!”

Apparently Wilson thinks he can …

Not only that, Wilson had the audacity to continue trying to portray himself as the aggrieved crusader … while lambasting his enemies as “naysayers, haters” and of course “bloggers.”

“I’m not going anywhere,” he said.  “Keep doing what you are doing.  I’ll keep doing the right thing.  You do your worst.  I will do my best.”

Sadly, two years ago Wilson had built a reputation as a crusader for public integrity … standing up to a corrupt judicial branch in an effort to advance the case against Harrell.  But he surrendered his white hat a long time ago … and now his conduct has become so transparently reprehensible, so egregiously corrupt that this website has called on him to resign his office.

Did Wilson’s show of bravado this week do anything to change our mind?

No … and apparently we’re not alone in that assessment.

“He came across like a petulant child,” a source close to the investigation told us, and that was one of the kinder criticisms.

“This is an unmitigated disaster for Alan Wilson,” a senior South Carolina “Republican” official told us.

“This is up there with Howard Dean screaming,” one prominent Democrat agreed.

Sad …

“I’ll keep doing the right thing. ”

The right thing for who Mr. Wilson?

“I will do my best.”

I don’t think anyone is impressed by your “best” Mr. Wilson.

Your problems with Pascoe & Johnson weren’t created by “naysayers, haters, & bloggers”, they were created by you.

Maybe it’s time for you to not only recuse yourself from this case, but from your office.

Not only that, he tore into John Monk from “The State”. He accused him of receiving a tip from Pascoe regarding the petition filing. Wilson’s words towards Monk is beyond the pale. The SC Attorney General accused a reporter of a crime because the reporter did not answer his question? He interrogated Monk, accused Monk, and convicted Monk.

He actually later yesterday walked back his anger towards Monk:

“http://www.wltx.com/news/one-on-one-alan-wilson-explains-decision/110878963”

He never fully explained why if Pascoe had met with him the week prior that the “tainting” could have been resolved- and his walk back suggests to me that he’s mentally unfit for this office as he admitted he was angry and that it was innappropriate to direct that anger towards Monk.

You simply can’t have a man who’s decisions are dictated by emotion holding the office Wilson does IMO…at least without the potential for abuse.

I can’t help but remember Wilson saying yesterday “Grand Jury’s are scary things.”

Yes Mr. Wilson, they certainly are…for those who’ve done something wrong.

LowCountryBoiled March 30, 2016 at 10:48 pm

Just how did monk know to ask for those files less than 30 minutes after ….and before AG Wilson knew of the filing? I think the question was justified and a great move on AG Wilsons part. Clearly Pascoe filed then called Monk. And that is a low move and not a sign of integrity.

Bible Thumper March 30, 2016 at 10:58 pm

But if those files are freely available, why would it be inappropriate for Monk to be told. Often, the press is told things anonymously. That doesn’t mean it was illegal or unethical. There were proceedings in the Harrell case before the grand jury met that were public.

Buzz Martin March 31, 2016 at 8:48 am

Yeah, it’s no BFD at all. Happens all the time. Wilson has made a total ass of himself.

Town Crier March 30, 2016 at 10:59 pm

You must be joking and/or not from these parts. Monk has an exceptional network of sources. He is shrewd. And he doesn’t back down. Most likely, he got several tips from different sources about the filing. NOTHING is secret or sacred in this town. Wilson would do well to review the long list of scandals and scofflaws Monk has taken down in his long career. Wilson may be next.

Buzz Martin March 31, 2016 at 8:42 am

Monk was an investigative reporter for The Sun News in Myrtle Beach for many years. I believe it was in the late ’70s or early ’80s that a prominent attorney was arrested on a minor charge, but did not leave the MB jail alive. I was friends with both of the sons of the attorney, and they were my classmates. I see them both at regular social get-togethers of MBHS alumni that we have every couple of months. I had also been friends with the cop (also a classmate, now deceased) who slammed Fleming Jensen’s head in the concrete floor of the holding cell. He’d actually been kind to me when I was arrested for drunk and disorderly, just a few years before the Jensen incident. Fleming was not so lucky.

The city tried to cover it all up, and there was no real investigation to speak off. It was like “our guy did no wrong. Nothing to see here. Move along .. .”

Monk kept digging and reporting on inconsistencies and irregularities in the way the case was handled. He did his job, in other words, just as he did on other abuses of power and rampant public corruption in the area. The powers that be wanted him gone. He was sued, just as the award-winning investigative reporter David Wren was sued many years later.

Not sure of how that case turned out, but I do know that Monk left The Sun News and went to another paper, in another state. Then several years later, he returned to SC. Ever since, he’s been doing excellent work for The State.

Alan Wilson has violated his oath to the people of SC… Resign… You lie and we do not trust you..

TroubleBaby March 30, 2016 at 8:23 pm

Thank you so much for that link!

How can Wilson recuse himself, yet still have power to determine if the grand jury goes ahead? How can that not be a conflict of interest if he’s a potential target of a grand jury?

I can’t see how that conflict of interest can be allowed regardless of how the state law reads. Isn’t that in the least a legal ethics issue that the bar(or SC judicial dept) should address?

I’ve never seen an AG throw a prosecutor under the bus like Wilson has, let alone one that he selected.

I can’t help but wonder how him and his staff can’t recognize their hypocrisy in decrying how Pascoe is tainted because of case leaks, yet Wilson himself at the start cries about his own internal leaks when he was doing the investigation. Amazing.

Even further, he invalidates his own argument about not proceeding over Pascoe’s “tainting” due to leaks when he says if there was simply a meeting last week between him and Pascoe last week he would have signed off on a grand jury.

How would that have rectified the “tainting” he claims?! He actually contradicts himself!

I can only see a Federal solution to this…if Alan Wilson really wants to protect what’s left of his reputation(and truly do the right thing) he should hand this whole ball of wax over to the Feds. I’m not buying his indignant/angry act either. He doth protest too much IMO.

Thomas March 30, 2016 at 8:26 pm

Wilson said Pascoe wasn’t even his 5th choice. Evidently, five others declined? Listening to Wilson explain it Pascoe volunteered!

Alan Wilson’s job is to make it easier, not harder, to convene a grand jury. If a duly appointed prosecutor, a well respected Circuit Court judge, and the Republican appointed SLED chief believe that is what is necessary for justice, Then Wilson should be unlocking the jury room and starting a pot of coffee, not waving his arms like a petulant child and trying to miscarry Justice.

Either Wilson’s ego can’t handle the fact that someone else is doing his job or he is completely obstructing justice to protect himself and his political adviser. Isn’t that why he recused himself in the first place- because of a “conflict”?

He chose politics over Justice months ago.

Reading the transcript at the bottom of “The State” article or viewing the video if audible (I have seen the question period) should be assigned to students. I felt a little awkward about McMaster, Condon and Medlock. Wilson looked flustered and out of control. How could McMaster explain this to voters if he runs for another office?

Pascoe needs to call in the FEDs, as the SC Supreme Court is also Supremely Crooked.
