In 2003 the Port of Charleston, S.C. was the world’s 42nd largest – and the fifth largest in the nation. Today? Charleston has surrendered its coveted spot on the world’s top fifty ports list to its closet rival, the Port of Savannah.
Don’t believe us? Take a look at the data for yourself …
Savannah is now the [...]
In a last-ditch effort to pass a watered-down ethics reform bill, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – perhaps the most hypocritical good government reformer in political history – has reportedly cut a deal with two tax-hiking “Republicans in Name Only.”
Multiple sources in the S.C. Senate tell FITS that the governor – who is desperate to secure [...]
A Democratic memo obtained exclusively by FITS alleges that S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley has a white supremacist on her 2014 gubernatorial steering committee.
Roan Garcia Quintana (above, with former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour) was one of several SCGOP partisans named to Haley’s grassroots steering committee in February. The Mauldin, S.C. native is executive director of a [...]
White Supremacist Serving on Nikki Haley’s Statewide Grassroots Steering Committee
Roan Garcia Quintana, Executive Director of the “Americans Have Had Enough Coalition” will be holding a press conference today with Sen. Tom Corbin and Rep. Mike Burns at the state house at 10am to oppose the S744, a federal immigration bill. A quick Google search will show that Mr. Garcia-Quintana is [...]
Governor Haley will be holding a press conference this morning and attached is a document to help you decode the Governor’s real position on ethics since her actions tell a far different story than her words.
Without ethical leaders, we’ll never have ethical government. The Governor has failed to meet the standard of conduct that South Carolinians [...]
When S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley unveiled her ethics reform proposals last August, we had to laugh … after all, her plan proposed doing away with many of the loopholes she has habitually exploited over the years in order to maintain and expand her political power.
“Trusting Nikki Haley with ethics reform is like asking Amy Winehouse to be [...]
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley - then running as a “Tea Party” reformer – pledged on the campaign trail in 2010 that she wouldn’t stop until South Carolina had a “conservative House” and a “conservative Senate.” Of course she has yet to back up that rhetoric – endorsing just one candidate in the 2012 primary cycle. Not only [...]
A day after South Carolina Republicans made some nice hay over a dubious endorsement by the S.C. Democratic Party’s likely 2014 standard bearer, they found themselves on the receiving end of a similar “burn.”
On Thursday, Republicans pounced on the fact that S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden) – the Democrats’ presumed 2014 gubernatorial nominee – endorsed [...]
South Carolina’s unemployment rate dropped from 8.4 percent in March to 8 percent last month, according to data released this week by the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW).
That’s it’s lowest level since October 2008 – news which was immediately touted by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.
“This drop in unemployment is yet another piece of [...]
Earlier this week FITS reported exclusively on the latest boondoggle taxpayer-funded conference being held by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW) at some luxurious coastal location.
According to our sources, one of the speakers at the event was Haley’s hand-picked chairman of the S.C. Workforce Investment Board (SWIB) – a 31-member advisory [...]
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley was supposed to be different … but in so many ways (big spending, faux reforms, lack of transparency, crony capitalism, nepotism, etc.) she’s proven to be every bit as bad as the status quo she campaigned against three years ago.
Worse, actually … because she promised us she was better.
Anyway, the latest [...]
Once again Governor Nikki Haley has wasted taxpayer dollars by illegally using the state airplane for politics and flying her campaign staff around. Read more about it here.
We have seen time and time again that Nikki Haley cares more about expanding her political career than doing right by the taxpayers of this state.
