Column: Ex-legislator, his sister and $1M vets program

In 2017, S.C. Rep. Mike Pitts pushed for state funding to launch a veterans’ therapy program that his sister positioned herself to manage and was overseen by the state agency that employed her for years, an investigation by The Nerve has found.
Two years and $1 million later, the therapy program, called “Herd 2 Human” and operated by Jeff Patterson at his Willowbend Farm in Clinton, Mont., is yet to be implemented in South Carolina. The program involves veterans interacting with horses to help them deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
