S.C. Rep. Williams holds press conference about fraudulent election fliers
State Representative Robert Williams (District 62) held a press conference March 18 at the Darlington County Courthouse to discuss the recent discovery of fliers fraudulently claiming his endorsement of a candidate for Darlington County Sheriff.
“There is someone out there sending out letters in my name, impersonating me… it’s very degrading and low, and we don’t need that kind of thing going on during (election) season,” said Williams.
He noted that all of the recovered false endorsement fliers have been turned over to law enforcement and the case is currently under investigation by SLED (South Carolina Law Enforcement Division).
“I have contacted SLED and they are going to do an inquiry to find out where these letters are being generated and who is behind it. We take this seriously,” Williams said. “I want those who are perpetrating this to come to justice.”
