Lawmaker Could Choose Who Investigates Him

"At least one Republican state lawmaker swept up in a corruption investigation may have found a clever way to respond: Pass a law that can block the probe," the Huffington Post reports.

"South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson (R) is investigating whether state House Speaker Bobby Harrell (R) violated ethics laws. Harrell paid himself $325,000 out of his campaign's bank account as reimbursements for flights he piloted... A pair of bills introduced Wednesday in the South Carolina General Assembly with bipartisan support would allow the speaker, with his counterpart in the state Senate, to appoint a special prosecutor to look into ethics accusations against lawmakers."
