For Immediate Release
Bluffton, South Carolina Lauren Martel Announces Candidacy for South Carolina Attorney General
South Carolina attorney Lauren Martel announced today that she is running in the Republican Primary for Attorney General of South Carolina. In making the announcement, Martel said that “South Carolina needs Republican leaders who are willing to act – not just talk.” Martel points out that current Republican Attorney General Alan Wilson has defaulted on numerous issues critical to the people of South Carolina. When asked for specifics, Martel did not hesitate: “Alan Wilson has failed to take any action to oppose and stop Governor McMaster’s unconstitutional consecutive state of emergency orders that illegally bypassed the legislature. Wilson has failed to take any action to investigate and stop the improper pressure being exerted on doctors to violate the doctor-patient relationship and the Hippocratic Oath when prescribing alternative Covid treatments, and he has likewise failed to take any action against pharmacies engaging in the unauthorized practice of medicine by overruling doctor prescriptions for therapeutics such as Ivermectin. And Wilson has failed to investigate the financial incentives given to hospitals to deny alternative Covid therapeutics rather than forcing patients to follow the central planning dictates of Tony Fauci. Our Attorney General needs to put the rights of the people first, not the powers of bureaucrats and health departments.” Martel continued: “The issue of our time is ending the civil liberties violations of Covid Tyranny and restoring medical freedom for all people in South Carolina. Our elected officials, particularly our Republican elected officials such as Attorney General Alan Wilson, have not protected the citizens of South Carolina from this onslaught against their liberties. I’m running because I will.”
