SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR LOADS UP ON GIFTS …
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley received $47,000 worth of free travel and took gifts totaling $45,000 in 2013 – not a bad supplement to her $106,078 annual taxpayer-funded salary and the $100,000 she received from the publisher of her book.
Not surprisingly, the first-term “Republican” – who campaigned on transparency and claims to be running the “most transparent administration in state history” – wasn’t in the mood to discuss details of all her goodies.
“Haley’s office did not respond Tuesday to written and phone messages,” reporter Rick Brundrett of The Nerve noted in his report on Haley’s freebies.
Brundrett also pointed out it was curious for Haley to receive payment from her book seeing as she previously stated that “proceeds from the sale of her book would go to her charitable foundation.”
Brundrett also pointed out that Haley failed to include her husband Michael’s government-funded salary on her income disclosure filing.
Wealthy real estate developers, national political organizations and other politicians padded Haley’s travel and gift accounts – including an $8,175.86 trip to Palm Springs (paid for by a Michigan-based foreclosure attorney) and a $3,750 tab for unspecified “accommodations” (provided by Columbia, S.C. real estate executive Jodie McLean).
Must be nice, huh?
Anyway, for all the details on Haley’s freebies check out Brundrett’s report HERE …
Wonder what kind of freebie Mark received on the China trip?
Yes. First class does have its perks.
I would say nothing. I tend to believe that loser falls in love with anybody who will sex with him!
Boot Haley out of office. I plan on voting for Ervin. ANBODY BUT HALEY !!!!!
Will she be indicted?
Shit…in this state?
I would say “when pigs fly” but part of that involved her taxpayer-funded flights too.
Ervin will be the first Republican I have ever given $$ to.
Who in the heck is Ervin?
That worked out really well for the Gov. of Virginia, didn’t it. Call in the feds.
They’ve been called. Thanks!
“South Carolina’s calling AGAIN? Geeze, Bob, just unplug the phone…”
Why would she need 10 Clemson football suites? There are not that many home football games and she can’t be in two at once.
$100k from her publisher? Damn, that’s a lot of dumb people.
For someone who makes a lot of money, she sure is a bum.
What do expect from a gypsy? Hell, her sister sold her house, took her kids out of school and lived in an RV until the courts stepped in. Traveled around speaking about conversations with the universe. Bunch of whackos.
I didn’t believe in witches until two summers ago when I picked up a woman hitchhiker. After driving 20 miles I suddenly turned into a motel.
Wonder how good her book is selling?
I think that is a US record price for a Fairy Tale…
When is she going to the Taj Mahal for her fact-finding mission?
I will help pay for a one-way ticket.
I hope that you have plenty of money because Nikki will take her entire tribe with her……
She ought to spend some of that cash on some good cloths. She always looks like she’s been poppin’ tags at the thrift store.
Just look at those teeth!
“Cept for that HONKER in a profile shot!
It would be a cute little button nose if she was a liberal.
She bought votes for sure
NIKKI HALEY ONLY CARES ABOUT NIKKI HALEY!!
