South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson

COLUMBIA - Attorney General Alan Wilson was cleared by the S.C. Ethics Commission of 29 campaign finance allegations late last month.

The Post and Courier's Jeremy Borden reported the ethics commission said Wilson refunded improper or excessive campaign contributions.

Commissioners also dismissed the complaints because they couldn't reach the woman who filed them, Krista Thom of Kansasville, Wis.
