Ernest Yarborough

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - On January 27, 2010, we reported that the Fairfield County School Board had voted to hire Ernest Yarborough as a lobbyist.

Later that day, we learned and reported that the State Law Enforcement Division was investigating the Fairfield County School Board.

We did not report, nor did we intend to imply, that it would be illegal for the school board to hire Mr. Yarborough as a lobbyist or that the SLED investigation was connected to his hiring.
