Giuliani SC Campaign Chair Arrested

Gov. Mark Sanford has suspended state Treasurer Thomas Ravenel after it was announced Tuesday the Charleston Republican had been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine.

Ravenel in April was named the state chairman for former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s presidential campaign, but he resigned that post this evening.
Rudy hasn't had the best week. First Fred Thompson, who has not even announced, has pulled within points of frontrunner Giuliani. Then Michael Sheehan, a major contributor was revealed as the head of a Vulture Fund that was trying to force an obscene judgement on Zambia and now this.

I have said it before and will say it again, it could not happen to a nicer guy.
