SENATE PANEL TO DELVE INTO COMPETITIVE GRANTS PROGRAM

FITSNews – November 29, 2007 – A well-placed source within the S.C. Senate says that a formal investigation of Gov. Mark Sanford’s competitive grants “scandal” will be announced “as soon as the legislature reconvenes (in the second week of January), if not sooner.”

A source of headaches for both the governor and his sparring partners in the S.C. General Assembly, the competitive grants program has been a veritable scandal factory ever since we blew the whistle on its shady dealings eight months ago.

As we mentioned a few weeks back, State Rep. Michael Thompson is sponsoring a bill that would eliminate the program, which was created to foster economic development but has since turned into a legislative slush fund with millions in unauthorized and unaccounted for expenditures.

No word yet on whether or not Sic Willie will be called to testify, but our source for the information indicated that FITSNews was bound to be a hot topic of discussion at the hearings.

Well, since the FBI isn’t going to investigate the O-Burg Massacre, they ought to be all over this one. Hell Jake Knotts has done all the work, all they have to do is arrest. Jake Knotts, Palmetto Five-O.
