South Carolina: GOP candidate sues Democratic Party for defamation

MyrlteBeachOnline.com reports: Bill McKown, a Republican candidate for the state Senate in District 28, sued the S.C. Democratic Party Monday for conspiracy and defamation about a month after the party filed a lawsuit alleging he did not live in District 28, which includes North Myrtle Beach.

McKown is the only candidate challenging incumbent Sen. Dick Elliott, D-North Myrtle Beach.

McKown s suit alleges the Democrats forged an exclusive rental agreement to make it appear as if Elliott Realty Inc., a company controlled by Elliott, had exclusive rights to lease land McKown nearly leased for his campaign office.

McKown s suit alleges that by forging the rental agreement, it made it seem as if McKown never had access to the property and lied on his statement of candidacy form, where he listed that property s address when he initially filed to run for office. -- Republican candidate sues Democratic Party - Local - Myrtle Beach Sun News
