HILTON HEAD — S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis threw more jabs Monday at the state’s Retirement System Investment Commission and its chief operating officer.

Speaking at a meeting of the First Monday Republican Lunch Group on Hilton Head Island, Loftis called the commission’s work “sinful” and says it “lacks a moral core.”

Loftis, a Republican elected in 2010, and the commission, which manages the $27 billion retirement fund for state workers, have been at odds for the past two years. Loftis has criticized the commission, saying it made too many risky investments and overpaid hundreds of millions of dollars in fees.

Planting Drugs

ROME, GA—Clifford J. Joyce has been sentenced to one year and six months in prison for framing a Murray County citizen for drug possession.

“By planting drugs on an innocent woman’s car, Mr. Joyce attempted to use the criminal justice system to serve his own personal agenda,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “In the end, however, it is Mr. Joyce, and not the Murray County woman, who will be headed to prison.”

Ricky Maxwell, Acting Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated, “Mr. Joyce’s sentencing today serves to not only hold him accountable for his crime but provides him time to reflect on this terrible deceptive act intended to harm another innocent individual. The FBI will continue to work with its various local, state, and other federal law enforcement partners to identify and investigate any allegations of criminal conduct involving or adversely impacting our criminal justice system.”
