The state attorney general has requested a review of a Midlands prosecutor after it was reported by the P&C that Solicitor Dan Johnson (Richland/Kershaw) spent large sums of state money on sporting events, private memberships, and Uber Black rides. The records were originally obtained by a group called Public Access to Public Records and first reported by Fits News three weeks ago before the P&C picked up the report yesterday.

SCANA executives took tickets to expensive and hard-to-find sporting events from contractors doing business with the publicly-traded utility as it asked S.C. politicians to raise power rates for state residents. The business says it "does not prohibit" executives from taking the perks. The VC Summer project, which SCANA held the majority stake in, failed last year after spending $9 billion on the joint project with Santee Cooper. Source: P&C

Gov. Henry McMaster held a press conference yesterday to support a proposal to find and root out sanctuary cities in S.C. even though there are none. One House member called the initiative a campaign year stunt. Source: The State
