Best Misuse of Taxpayer Funds 

Confederate Relic Room and Museum

Readers Pick

When the initial estimate drew harsh criticism, the Confederate Relic Room and Military Commission cut the cost to $3.6 million for a plan that includes expanding the current facility and creating a digital display featuring South Carolina soldiers.
