A GOP group that formed last week to question S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley on a variety of issues finally got around to launching its website this week.
“Conservatives for Truth in Politics” – or “TIP” – is demanding that Haley answer several questions related to her questionable “consulting” contracts, multiple tax problems and curiously non-conservative tax proposals.

Created by former SCGOP First Vice Chairwoman Cyndi Mosteller and Clemson University political scientist Dave Woodard, the group is also demanding that Haley release all of her legislative emails – not just a select batch. Additionally, the group has requested affidavits from Haley and two men who claim to have had affairs with the married GOP gubernatorial nominee – accusations which Haley has repeatedly denied. Both men – lobbyist Larry Marchant and our founding editor, Sic Willie – have agreed to provide the organization with affidavits.
Haley has declined.
Meanwhile, another anti-Haley site – TheRealNikki.com – launched last week. It is unclear who is behind that website, although we’ll let you know what we find out on that front.
Haley has enjoyed huge leads over S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen in her bid to replace S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford in 2011, however recent polling data suggests that the race is tightening.
UPDATE: We’ve had a few people ask where our “just the tip” quote (used in our previous coverage) came from. Duh … like way, way too many of this website’s references, it’s from the movie Wedding Crashers. Click here to watch the clip.
