To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All records between the staff of the Office of the Governor of South Carolina, including Governor McMaster, and Moelis & Company (also referred to Moelis & Co. or just Moelis). Additionally, I am requesting all records between the staff of the Office of the Governor of South Carolina, including the Governor, and Mr. Eric Cantor.

As used above, the term “records” includes, without limitation, all communications, correspondence, records of phone conversations, transcripts of testimony, minutes or notes of meetings, electronic mail, PowerPoint or other similar presentations, memoranda, reports, maps, photographs, drawings, data, tables, spreadsheets, formulas, notes, observations, impressions, contracts, and policies or directives, whether in an electronic or print medium, original or copy, or draft or final form.

The timeframe of this public records request is between January 1, 2017 and the date of this filing.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. Therefore I am requesting a waiver of any fees.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business days, as the statute requires.
