South Carolina House Majority leader Gary Simrill requested SLED and the State Attorney General investigate emails sent to legislators he suspects didn’t come from the people they claim to be.

Simrill said he got suspicious when he received several form emails from people he knows who told him they didn’t send them.  According to Simrill people’s names and home addresses were used in the messages, but not their correct email addresses, which made him suspicious.

He said he suspects the names and addresses came from voter registration information, but so far that’s not been confirmed by investigators.
