SCDP STATEMENT ON INDICTMENT OF REP. JIM MERRILL 

Columbia, SC – The South Carolina Democratic Party released the following statement today on the indictment on State Representative Jim Merrill (R-Daniel Island) on 30 counts of ethics violations:

“Today’s indictment is just the latest manifestation of the Republican culture of corruption that has taken hold over 14 years of GOP rule in South Carolina. First a Republican Lieutenant Governor, then a Republican House Speaker, and now a Republican former House Majority Leader: three strikes and South Carolina Republicans will be voted out. If Donald Trump wants to drain the swamp, he should start with his Republican supporters in South Carolina.”
