Bad News for the Kennedys

Bill Would Require Drug Tests for Candidates

People filing for public office would also have to submit to drug testing under a proposal pitched by a state senator.

Senate Republican Leader Harvey Peeler filed his bill a day after news broke that former state Treasurer Thomas Ravenel had been indicted on a federal cocaine conspiracy charge.

The June indictment came just six months after the Republican Charleston real estate developer took office.
