I am truly stunned that Bobby Harrell has yet to repay his misused campaign funds and further is dictating to the ethics committee when he may or may not make the repayment.

The repayment was part of his agreement that presumably kept him out of jail for his illegal activities.

You would have to visit Alice in Wonderland to find a more bizarre legal system than this one which allows politicians, but only politicians to tell the court when they will comply with their guilty plea.

Just imagine yourself in front of a judge, telling him, “I don’t know if or when I will repay the money. But I will dictate the terms not you.”

No wonder Charleston was rated the best city to live in. You have to answer for your lack of ethics only if you want to.
