Apprently when you're Education Superintendent candidate Elizabeth Moffly, looks are everything.
Which might explain why she spent hundreds of dollars of campaign cash on ... haircuts?
And almost six hundred dollars on clothing.
We knows this sounds a little out there, but we couldn't make something like this outraegous up if we tried. According to the S.C. Ethics Commission's website, she spent 1,465.15 of the total $24,458.57 spent by her campaign to date on clothing, haircuts, and drycleaning:
While this looked really stupid, we didn't know if it was illegal, so we went to an expert. According to Todd Kincannon, an expert election lawyer and former Executive Director and General Counsel of the South Carolina Republican Party:
It's illegal to use campaign funds for personal expenses, and it's also downright stupid. People read campaign finance reports and see these sorts of things.
So spending money like that is not just dumb, it's illegal. But since Moffly raised less than $4K in contributions, we're pretty sure people won't be mobbing her for their money back.
