Commissioners erupt over PAC

Published: Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 12:23 PM.

Williams said the PAC was “out of control” and acknowledged that he had also cooperated with the State Attorney investigation by wearing a wire to obtain incriminating evidence about the alleged blackmail.

Williams, a Republican, added his hopes that the candidate singled out by McElroy, Joanna Bryan, “loses” and said the State Attorney investigation is the public’s business.

Williams and Bryan are both Republicans and the local Republican Party is endorsing Bryan.

According to a Public Information Officer with the State Attorney’s Office, the investigation was closed without any charges being brought on Oct. 16.

The PIO said it was reopened after last week’s meeting.

Commissioner Ward McDaniel said to McElroy that anybody had the right to make campaign contributions as they wished.

Williams said the PAC’s campaign had become too personal.
