Martel for Attorney General hero

The People’s Attorney General

Corruption Fighter, and Champion of Transparency and Accountability in Government

  • Transparency promotes accountability, making government more efficient and effective
  • Keeping corruption in check boosts stability, the rule of law, and order.
  • The people of South Carolina deserve an Attorney General who will defend the law and the rights of all citizens

Meet Lauren Martel

I am running to be the next Attorney General for the state of South Carolina because the Republican Party – and the people of South Carolina – need a fighter, not a talker. After 20 years of Republican control of South Carolina government, the time is over for excuses as to why we cannot roll back the overreaching agenda and make South Carolina a sanctuary for liberty.

I have been dealing with judges and parties for 30 years as an attorney. I know how to fight. I know how to use litigation selectively and judiciously to advance conservative values. Just look at my record as an attorney – I have chosen to take on fights to stop vaccine mandates, I have taken on fights to allow South Carolina citizens the choice to use Ivermectin when their doctors prescribe it, and I have taken on the fight to use the Heritage Act to preserve monuments that liberals are attacking. Regardless of what new fights await, I will continue to take those on as well

Where has Attorney General Alan Wilson been on these fights? No more than a “me too” backbencher on one of the vaccine mandate cases, and otherwise silent. Just as the Republican Establishment has been. We need more from a Republican attorney General. SC deserves an Attorney General who will…

4-25-2022 - Lauren's Quote of the Day
“Given the huge inflation in grocery prices it looks like the stores are taking advantage to claim that shortages are causing price increases when in fact the big grocers are price gouging and price fixing. As the next Attorney General, I will open an investigation of the real causes of inflation which may be criminal or civil price fixing and price gouging.”

Lauren’s POSITIONS:

(click each topic below to read my detailed positions)

Fight Covid Tyranny and Protect Medical Freedom:
I am the conservative lawyer who fights for medical freedom. I have taken on hospitals that won’t administer Ivermectin. I have successfully sued an employer that tried to force the Covid vaccine on its employees against their will. I’ve successfully challenged mask mandates. Medical Freedom is the pro-life issue of our time. If you can’t control what goes into your body and if you aren’t allowed to breathe freely, you don’t have the right to Life. I will always fight for my Pro-life Pro Liberty values set out in a constitutional Republic.

  • I will fight for each individual’s right to choose whether or not to wear a mask
  • I will fight for each individual’s right to decide whether or not to take a Covid vaccine
  • I will fight for each individual’s right to use alternative therapeutics to fight Covid, including Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine
  • I will fight to protect each individual’s medical privacy from disclosure to any third parties
  • I will fight to protect every doctor’s right to practice medicine as his or her own medical judgment informs, and to protect every licensed doctor from retaliation by medical review boards and other licensing authorities
Defend Voter and Election Integrity
Ensuring the integrity of elections is a high priority for the maintenance of a free republic. The legislature must create laws that protect the public from fraud and that don’t enshrine fraud into the process. It is the Attorney General’s job to enforce those laws. When I am elected Attorney General, I will work vigorously to enforce all the laws designed to protect the integrity of elections and ballots in South Carolina.
Protect the people of South Carolina from unlawful federal overreach:
  • I will take affirmative steps to resist the Biden Administration’s unlawful trafficking of illegal immigrants to South Carolina
  • I will take affirmative steps to resist unlawful federal mandates, including but not limited to any further efforts by the federal government to coerce South Carolinians into taking Covid vaccines that they do not wish to take voluntarily
  • I will take affirmative steps to challenge any federal takeover of state electoral systems
  • I will institute a review of whether the federal Motor Voter Law has unconstitutionally limited South Carolina’s ability to police and prosecute voter fraud in elections, and bring legal action if so warranted
Criminal Justice Reform:
  • I will instruct all persons working for the Attorney General that its job is to get violent criminals off the streets, and that it is not their job to find ways to release violent criminals
  • I will institute a review of all Soros-elected local prosecutors, and take action to protect the public where those prosecutors put the interests of criminals ahead of the interests of the general public
Defend Traditional South Carolina Values:
Historical monuments memorialize our cultural history. The Heritage Act prohibits local officials from removing any monuments of our cultural heritage without our express permission from the legislature. As a private attorney, I have brought lawsuits to enforce the Heritage Act when the incumbent refused. When I am elected Attorney General, I will work vigorously to protect South Carolina's Heritage by enforcing the Heritage Act.

  • I will vigorously enforce the Heritage Act and use the Attorney General’s power to oversee charitable trusts in order to protect cultural relics from South Carolina’s history
  • I will vigorously defend the rights of parents to have ultimate responsibility and authority for their children’s education and health care
Fight to End Human Trafficking:
The problem of child and adult sex trafficking and labor trafficking is vast, and it is increasing here in South Carolina. Now, abusers are co-opting new and emerging technology to hurt people and increase predatory acts. Understanding how is key to stopping the abuse.
