I see that State Senator Robert Ford is back in the news again on alleged ethics violations. Several years ago there was a fire at Senator Ford’s residence. In the article, published in the Post and Courier, Senator Ford stated that his only income was that of a state senator. He was reported to have stated that he lost 100, thousand dollar, suits in the fire.† How can a state senator afford 100, thousand dollar, suits on just a state senator’s salary?† After the May 7, 2013 article, in the Post and Courier, “Ford puts blame on errors,” my question is “Are the 100, thousand dollar, suits part of these accounting errors?”
