Quinn, 51, represented S.C. House District 69 (map) from 2011 until his resignation on Wednesday. Prior to that, he represented S.C. House District 71 (map) from 1989-2004 – serving as majority leader during the final five years of his tenure.
According to prosecutors, Quinn failed to report millions of dollars in income – and participated in a vast pay-to-play network aimed at servicing the well-established corporate and government interests of the political consulting firm run by his father, Richard Quinn.
The younger Quinn is expected to plead guilty to at least one of the charges filed against him at Wednesday’s hearing, which will reportedly involve the presentation of “extensive evidence” from S.C. first circuit prosecutor David Pascoe.
