As the new year begins, South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster continues with an investigation into Governor Mark Sanford’s business trips and other actions while in office to determine if there has been any criminal wrong doing.
“We’re reviewing a mass of documents and doing research in my office,” says McMaster, “and other than that, it would be inappropriate for me to comment about the investigation, because I may be called upon to make a prosecutorial decision.”
McMaster talks about the possibility of his using information in his case from the ongoing investigation by the state Ethics Commission. “It depends on the thoroughness of that information and any gaps or lack of gaps that may be there,” says McMaster. “There may be additional information that’s needed, or there may not be. That’s what we’re determining.”
