School Board Member Violates Ethics Law

The State newspaper reports today that Lexington-Richland 5 school board chair Jan Hammond violated South Carolina ethics laws by using the District's email system for political purposes. Read the article here:

Are ethics laws to be dismissed? Can a board member just violate them and say, So what? Or say they don't agree?

Have you ever received a political email from the Richland 2 board member, sent from a Richland 2 email address? If you have, please send it me at 

Hopefully, someone in L-R5 has filed a formal complaint with the S.C. Ethics Commission. That will trigger and investigate, hearing, decision and fine. As well it should.
