Former Charleston County Representative Wallace Scarborough
and Beaufort Senator Catherine Ceips got legal recently, after years
of “living in sin” on the sly. The two married Republican lawmakers
had a long-running affair even as they held seats in the Statehouse
and supported legislation regulating other people’s sexual behavior.
I first broke the story of the affair in Charleston City Paper in August, 2006.
Since then, Scarborough and Ceips have been defeated and are currently
out of politics. Here is the story of the happy nuptials as reported in the Hilton
Head Island Packet at www.islandpacket.com/1482/story/1067818.html.
Let us wish them the best.
