FBI agent testifies he was mystified why Quinn firm paid ex-Rep. Harrison $900,000

COLUMBIA, SC -- An FBI agent testified Tuesday that he came away mystified after interviewing ex-Rep. Jim Harrison for four hours in 2017 about what the Columbia Republican had done for a political consulting firm to justify being paid almost $900,000.

“I didn’t understand why somebody (Harrison) would be getting paid $80,000 a year” by Richard Quinn & Associates and not be able to describe “what they were doing,” FBI agent Chris Garrett told jurors.

Pressed for details, Harrison didn’t give specifics about what he did for the Quinn firm from 1999 through 2012, the FBI agent testified.

For those 13 years, Harrison publicly was chairman of the S.C. House’s Judiciary Committee, a key legislative committee. Roughly 40 percent of all House bills pass through that committee.
