Sheriff's candidate slammed with 33 campaign finance violations

DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) The State Ethics Commission says they've found probable cause to charge a candidate for Darlington County sheriff with 33 counts of campaign finance violations.

Lamar Chief of Police Charles D. Woodle has been hit with the charges following a 3-month investigation into his campaign activities during the June 2012 primary.

A 13-page Ethics Commission charging document details the charges lobbed against Woodle.

According to that document, Woodle accepted $5,000 worth of campaign contributions, but did not deposit them into his campaign account.

The document goes on to say that Woodle also accepted $2,000 worth of cash contributions and did not report them to the Ethics Commission.
