GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

The South Carolina Democratic Party held a what organizers call a vigil in Greenville Wednesday to mark one year since the hacking of millions of tax returns at the Department of Revenue.

It was part of a series of silent vigils across the state this week.

Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison has called Governor Nikki Haley's handling of the hacking a failure of leadership.

But Haley spokesman Doug Mayer responded the governor's focus from the start has been on working to catch the hacker. Mayer says while technology always evolves, the state is safer than ever now from such attacks.
