Lawmaker, legislative caucus get paid by Steyer campaign

As South Carolina neared its 2020 presidential primary, a colleague and I uncovered that the head of South Carolina’s Legislative Black Caucus received more than $40,000 from the Tom Steyer campaign. The payments lead to a major controversy at the State House — which even made its way to the debate stage — as black lawmakers accused another lawmaker who tweeted about the payments of a pattern of racist actions. Later, I uncovered that caucus also received a payment from the Steyer campaign.
