Attorney general receives SLED investigation

  • Wednesday, August 14, 2013

The next step of the investigation into the Berkeley County School District’s “Yes 4 Schools” bond referendum campaign has taken place.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) handed its investigation report over to the S.C. Attorney General’s Office last week. SCAG Communications Director J. Mark Powell confirmed the news, adding that he does not know when Attorney General Alan Wilson will make a statement regarding the investigation.
The public voted to pass the $198 million referendum in November. Earlier this year the attorney general requested an investigation into the ethics of the campaign.
