MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach attorney and former Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce chairman faces 167 state ethics charges.

According to WMBF’s news partner, My Horry News, Robert “Shep” Guyton is accused of funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations through more than a dozen corporations in 2009.

Most of the violations stem from excessive contributions to candidates for local and state offices, according to My Horry News.

Guyton, a former chairman of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce board, has yet to comment. He could be fined up to $2,000 per violation, My Horry News reported.

None of the candidates who received the contributions, including Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes, have been accused of ethics violations.
