On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson is joined by the Associated Press's Meg Kinnard to discuss the latest news about the South Carolina Statehouse corruption probe and Richard Quinn, who at one time was considered one of the state's top political consultants.

Quinn has been charged with 11 counts of lying to the state grand jury, despite pledging cooperation as part of a plea deal involving his son, former Rep. Rick Quinn (R-Lexington), who last year was found guilty of misconduct in office.
