Elgin Mayor Brad Hanley called a special meeting Tuesday of Elgin Town Council in response to a YouTube video featuring Councilman Larry Risvold. The video was taken during a breakfast meeting of a group calling itself the Cayce Mafia and features both Risvold and Jeff Mattox, the former co-chair of the Kershaw County Republican Party, discussing what they claimed are problems with the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) conducting traffic stops. The Cayce Mafia has been meeting for breakfast to discuss current events since 1988, according to a 2009 Columbia City Paper article.
