Kershaw County School Board Trustee Joseph (“Joey”) Dorton and Kershaw County Council write-in candidate Willie Mickle, both owners of Gags Liquor Store on Wylie Street in Camden, are facing foreclosure of their business and have allegedly failed to pay sales taxes since 2009. Dorton is Mickle’s son-in-law. According to a legal filing by TD Bank, Dorton and Mickle, as Domick LLC, have defaulted on a nearly $224,000 loan for their commercial property, including a neighboring car wash, and failed to pay more than $16,000 in sales taxes.
