S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson’s campaign did not report some contributions
COLUMBIA — S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson’s campaign did not report several contributions for Wilson’s 2011 inaugural gala, including a $3,500 donation from House Speaker Bobby Harrell, Wilson’s former campaign chairman said today.
The chairman, Nelson Mullins attorney Thad Westbrook, said the contributions, which he thinks number between 10 and 15, were not reported because of a clerical error.
The oversight was not discovered until this week, he said.
Westbrook said he didn’t yet know the total value of the unreported contributions.
Wilson on Tuesday said he was returning the contribution from Harrell and another $3,500 contribution from a group tied to the House speaker.
Cathy Hazelwood, an attorney for the State Ethics Commission, could not immediately be reached for comment.
