Horry Candidates Could be Disqualified

A total of 15 Horry County Republican candidates for state or local office could be left off the ballot in June because of a failure to file the required Statement of Economic Interests with the S.C. Ethics Commission on time.

South Carolina Code of Laws Section 8-13-1356 (B) states, “A candidate must file a statement of economic interests for the preceding calendar year at the same time and with the same official with whom the candidate files a declaration of candidacy or petition for nomination.”

Filing for candidates closed at noon March 30, 2012. The Statement of Economic Interests form needed to be filed electronically with the Ethics Commission by the closing deadline for all candidates except incumbents.
