SC House Speaker dodging WIS open records requests


COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) — Despite state law that says such records are to be kept for four years and two public records requests, one of which delivered directly to the Speaker himself, Bobby Harrell refuses to allow WIS to see his spending records for the previous four years.

The Speaker of the South Carolina House of Representatives is under investigation after a conservative policy group requested the state’s Attorney General’s office look into how Harrell spent more than $325,000 from his campaign account.
