FITSNews – June 29, 2007 – S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford agreed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to the family of a drowning victim in 2002, sources in Beaufort, S.C. tell FITSNews.

FITSNews is attempting to obtain copies of the settlement agreement and other related documents including a death certificate, but calls to the attorneys involved, the Beaufort County Coronor’s Office and the governor’s office were not immediately returned.

Unless you’re implying this is a hate crime, it doesn’t seem to matter much whether the poor girl was white or black. Perhaps you should also include whether she was right or left handed and her eye color.

Yeah Will, and unless this included age discrimination, or was a gender hate crime you shouldn’t have included a reference to her age or gender. Rob W. I t hink you may be being overly sensitive on this one. Apprent gender age AND race are common descriptors. They don’t appear to be egregious or overly gratuitous in this post.

How about the other local politicians and well known dignitaries that played in the snow with T-Rav. I noticed that the P&C has very little about this story, jeez I wonder why. Who are they trying to protect. I hear this story hits close to home with them, those in the know, know what I’m talking about. The party in the battery, the hidden cameras, those who flipped and mentioned names. A good investigative reporter could have a field day with this story and probably sell a screenplay. City Paper and The State-keep on top of this story because you own it. The P&C doesn’t want to get dirty with this one.
