Pornographic email investigation: WIS asks for records, gets $30K bill instead

From WIS:  FAIRFIELD COUNTY, SC (WIS) – A WIS investigation into allegations that the Fairfield County administrator had disseminated pornography from his tax payer-funded computer has ended with a $29,395 Freedom of Information Act charge.

In February, State Law Enforcement Division agents closed an investigation into administrator Phil Hinley's county email account after agents got a string of emails from an informant. The emails were sent from Hinley's "" account, which is a tax payer provided account for all county employees.
