Richland 2 trustee-elect Amelia McKie made the news today.
In a Post and Courier article published late this afternoon, McKie is mentioned for - wait for it - her $57,000 debt to the South Carolina Ethics Commission.
Great way to get news; right? Richland 2 School District should be so proud. Her friends on the board should be proud, too. Even her fellow trustee-elect, Teresa Holmes, should be proud of McKie.
Why aren't some of McKie's proud friends harping on her to PAY HER DEBT?
Ask them. Ask Holmes, Caution-Parker, McFadden, Manning and Scott (Elkins)
Reporter Avery Wilks spread the fame around quite a bit. He didn't just pick on McKie.
