S.C. GOVERNOR’S NATIONAL ITINERARY RAMPS UP AGAIN

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley isn’t wasting any time getting back into the swing of promoting herself on the national stage.

The part-time Palmetto State chief executive – whose cross-country itinerary was delayed for a few weeks by a massive security breach at one of her cabinet agencies – has resumed her political travel with a vengeance.

As reported exclusively by FITS, Haley is at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Chicago, Illinois this week given the keynote address at a luncheon sponsored by the Heritage Foundation. ¬†Later this week she will travel to Washington, D.C. to give a speech to the Republican Governors’ Association.

We know what these speeches will do for Haley … but what will they do for South Carolina?

That’s a good question …

In related news, it was revealed that a pair of international trips taken by Haley earlier this year – including one which took place during the recent S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR) security breach – cost taxpayers an estimated $134,000. ¬†Haley traveled to England in July and Tokyo in September on “economic development” missions.

Haley’s September trip took place several weeks after hackers began infiltrating her agency’s computer network – making off with 3.8 Social Security numbers, 3.3 million bank account numbers, tax info for more than 650,000 businesses and nearly 400,000 credit and debit card numbers.
