Ken Ard Scandals & Controversies
  • South Carolina's Lieutenant Gov. Ken Ard, who announced his resignation 3/09/12, was charged by a state grand jury with seven violations of state ethics laws. He used thousands of dollars of campaign money for personal expenditures, including $800 at a boutique shop, $3000 at Best Buy, $2000 for travel and several other personal expenses. In addition to purchasing a number of personal items using campaign funds, Ard was charged with donating his own money to his campaign — which is allowed under South Carolina law — but making it look like it came from others to create the impression he had strong support in the state.
