Missing funds led Graham to dismiss aide

There are 1 comment on the Myrtle Beach Online story from Oct 17, 2007, titled Missing funds led Graham to dismiss aide. In it, Myrtle Beach Online reports that:

Bobbi Schlatterer, spokeswoman for the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division, said her agency had opened a criminal investigation into Adams' activities. She declined further comment. Read more
