GREENVILLE, South Carolina (AP) -- South Carolina Republicans say the Democrats owe them beer money.How sad is it when a beer maker has a regional director of governmental affairs? A regional director. Meaning there are more.
In April, Anheuser-Busch Co. -- based in St. Louis, Missouri -- wrote a $5,000 check intended for the state Republican Party.
Instead, the envelope was addressed to the state Democratic Party, which promptly deposited the money.
Now, state GOP leaders say the South Carolina Democratic Party needs to return the beer money they are owed.
Democrats say the check is in the mail.
Katja Zastrow, Anheuser-Busch's regional director of governmental affairs in Washington, said in an e-mail statement that the check went astray "through a series of administrative oversights."
