Ethics probe of SC lt. governor goes to grand jury
SC prosecutor sends case of lieutenant governor's ethics violations to grand jury
By The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ' An investigation into South Carolina Lt. Gov. Ken Ard's violations of state ethics laws is heading to a grand jury, raising the potential for criminal charges against the politician.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said Wednesday the state grand jury should review the accusations against the first-term Republican.

Ard spokeswoman Julia Foster said he would cooperate with authorities.

The lieutenant governor paid a $48,000 fine earlier this month after being hit with 107 civil counts of using campaign cash for personal expenses. Those included a family vacation, iPads, a flat-screen television, clothes, meals and a trip to the SEC championship football game last fall.
