Fowler calls McMaster’s plan for Sanford probe a ‘farce’

Columbia, S.C. – Following is a statement by Carol Fowler, Chair of the SC Democratic Party, in response to Attorney General McMaster’s call for an investigation of Governor Sanford by the S.C. Ethics Commission, a group appointed by Mark Sanford:

“A few days ago, I called on Attorney General Henry McMaster to investigate Mark Sanford’s travel and other expenses, in particular his use of state airplanes. Instead of providing the people of South Carolina with something that even resembles an independent look into the governor’s activities, Mr. McMaster has asked a committee of Republicans, appointed by the governor himself, to investigate.

“What a farce! Having the Ethics Committee handle this matter is essentially the same as having Sanford investigate himself.

“It has been clear for weeks that the attorney general has no desire to look into anything the governor has done. He apparently will go to any length to be sure Mark Sanford is able to complete his term. I guess you really have to understand the inside politics of the Republican Party to know why in the world Henry McMaster won’t just step up and do his job.”
