Senate Sues McMaster Over Santee Cooper Appointment

posted by Gary Barboza - 

(Columbia, SC)  --  Timing appears to be at the heart of a lawsuit filed by the state senate against the governor.  

The senate yesterday sued Governor Henry McMaster over McMaster's decision to appoint Charlie Condon as chairman of Santee Cooper.  

McMaster says he had the right to appoint the attorney general because the senate was in recess at the time of the appointment.  

The senate, though, says it was in session, but it never voted on Condon's appointment before the session ended.
