Only 150 attend pro-Moore rally

Mar 23, 2011 2:43:00 PM - thestate.com
With signs and song, about 150 people gathered at the State House Wednesday to protest Gov. Nikki Haley’s decision to replace Darla Moore on the University of South Carolina’s board of trustees.

Haley replaced Moore, the largest financial benefactor in USC history, with a campaign contributor, Lexington attorney Tommy Cofield.

The organizer of Wednesday’s protest, Katherine Muller, called on Cofield to resign so Moore could be re-appointed.

That called drew cheers from the crowd, made up mostly of students.

"As a citizen of South Carolina and a student at the (Darla Moore School of Business), I feel that removing her is a grievous error," said Chis Campbell, a 21-year old junior. "Gov. Haley is thinking too much about her political career and not enough about the students."
