Statement By Attorney General McMaster On Calls For Investigating Mark SanfordColumbia, S.C. June 26, 2009 – “I have confidence in the professionalism and objectivity of SLED. If there is anything we don’t know, or if there is any credible evidence that any laws have been broken, then appropriate action should be taken.

At this point, none of the facts appear to be in dispute. The governor has freely admitted everything he has been accused of. Clearly, his actions were personally and professionally unwise and inappropriate.

However, criminal investigations should never be politically inspired. I hope all sides will resist attempting to use the investigative and prosecutorial powers of law enforcement for political purposes. Mixing politics and law enforcement is never a good idea.”
