S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley wasted little time framing her controversial exoneration by the S.C. House Ethics Committee as a broader vindication of her administration.

“Shocker!” Haley wrote in response to the news on her Facebook page.

“I’m amazed at how naysayers continue to fabricate things to try and create distractions,” she continued. “At some point they will realize I don’t care about their wasted energy. My focus will continue to be on jobs and the economy of our state.”

So let’s get this straight …  Haley gets caught red-handed illegally lobbying (and committing a host of other violations), threatens lawmakers with reprisal if they come after her, gets off on a technicality and we’re supposed to believe that she’s the victim?

Yup … that about sums it up.
