Best State Government Audit

Post and Courier’s Capitol Gains

Staff Pick

What started as a joint investigation between the fine folks at The Post and Courier and Washington, D.C.’s Center for Public Integrity, ended up as a lengthy list of the spending habits of our state politicians. From funding numerous hunting expeditions to paying fines for ethics violations, the series provided an in-depth and eye-opening look at where the money goes in modern politics. Whether lawmakers were found to have directed campaign funds to family members or simply used the money to gas up their ride, the Capitol Gains series is the type of journalism that holds South Carolina’s elected officials accountable. —Dustin Waters
