State Treasurer Curtis Loftis violated ethics law when he helped in hiring a long-time friend to represent his office in a lawsuit against the Bank of New York, the State Ethics Commission says.

Loftis says he will appeal the decision and fee.

You may think Mickey Mouse or Darryl from The Walking Dead are better candidates for Unites States president than those who are currently running for the office. You may think Bernie Sanders was bulldozed during the Democratic primaries, or still want Ted Cruz to be the first conservative president in eight years.
But you won’t be able to vote for any of them Nov. 8.
South Carolina state law prohibits write-in votes for president and vice-president, the only races for which it does so.
