Another South Carolina Politician Guilty of Tax Charges

There must be something in the water in the Palmetto State: Yet another politician in South Carolina forgot about filing his taxes.

This time it was a Democrat, State Representative Harold Mitchell (D-Spartanburg) who claimed he just filed late. He had been accused of felony tax evasion; today he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of not filing his taxes timely. He’ll owe the amount of the tax due (just under $6,000) and court costs. His three-year sentence will be suspended provided he makes the payment (which he has promised to do).

South Carolina voters appear confident about Mr. Mitchell. He was reelected…without opposition.
