COLUMBIA, SC - Former Charleston Sen. Robert Ford faces more allegations that he used campaign donations for personal expenses.
    
The Senate Ethics Committee issued a complaint Thursday alleging that the senator who resigned last year during a hearing over violations of state ethics laws has improperly used campaign money after he left.

The complaint hand-delivered to Ford alleges that he converted campaign funds for personal use and misstated the amounts of expenses on campaign disclosure reports due last July and October. Those covered the second and third quarters of last year. Ford resigned May 31, as the second day of his hearing began. That removed the possibility of his colleagues expelling him.
    
That case is still under review at the attorney general's office.
    
Ford's lawyer did not immediately respond to a message Friday.
