Ard says he won’t quit

Jul 26, 2011 1:53:00 PM - thestate.com
Embattled Lt. Gov. Ken Ard arrived at the State House today, saying he will not resign from office despite a pending state grand jury's investigation onto his ethics violations.

“I have no plans to resign,” the first-term Florence Republican told reporters as he walked into his office at the State House in advance of the Senate's 2 p.m. special session to take up redistricting. “We are cooperating fully with the AG's (attorney general’s) office to bring this thing to a conclusion.”

The State Ethics Commission fined Ard $48,400 for illegal use of campaign contributions. State Attorney General Alan Wilson along with State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel have requested a state grand jury investigate Ard's case to see if any crimes occurred.
