Liberty dismisses clerk amid SLED investigation

LIBERTY — The City of Liberty is being investigated by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Davison.

SLED spokesman Thom Berry confirmed the investigation via email, saying the investigation is “active and ongoing.”
No other details have been released by SLED concerning the investigation.

Liberty mayor Eric Boughman confirmed last week that following an executive session held during the Aug. 10 Liberty City Council meeting, city clerk and treasurer Erin Lewis had been terminated by the council.

“Liberty City Council did decide to release the city’s clerk/treasurer,” Boughman told The Courier. “It was a move that was felt in the best interest of the city.

“As you know, SLED is also conducting an investigation, and when it concludes, I will sit down and issue an official statement that will hopefully explain everything that has transpired.”
