SC Senate District 42 Special Election Antics

South Carolina elections never fail to produce drama and the special election to fill the SC Senate District 42 seat, vacated by the resignation of Sen. Robert Ford in May, looks to continue this tradition.

Ford resigned his seat during a May 2013 Senate Ethics Committee investigation into his alleged misuse of campaign funds for personal expenses and failing to report expenses, donations and personal loans.

Ford, a Democrat, served 20 years in the SC Senate representing what is considered a safe Democratic district.
