As we reported earlier, it was during this meeting that House Speaker Bobby Harrell (R-Charleston) announced the grand jury probe into his campaign finances had not only ended but resulted in no indictment. Harrell went on to say that Attorney General Alan Wilson had recused himself from the case, handing it off to First District Solicitor David Pascoe.
According to a secret audio tape obtained by the South Carolina Policy Council's political arm, The Nerve, Harrell mentioned that his son had at one time in the past worked with Pascoe as a prosecutor.
The sources we spoke with confirmed they believe Hill not only recorded the private meeting but handed the recording to The Nerve which anonymously published its contents.
Hill's juvenile behavior prior to officially securing the title of "Representative Elect" is a warning sign to all who come in contact with him: he can't be trusted. That's a tough label to carry before even being sworn in to office.
