NATIONAL BRIEFING / SOUTH CAROLINA

Ethics panel wants hearing on Sanford

November 19, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An ethics panel says that South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford should face a hearing on potential violations of state law found during an investigation into his travel and campaign finances.

Questions about the Republican's use of state, private and commercial planes arose after he disappeared in June and later admitted that he had been in Argentina visiting his mistress.

The decision by the State Ethics Commission follows a three-month investigation. Commissioners did not reveal details about their findings or how they concluded there was probable cause for an ethics hearing early next year.
