Nikki Haley Is Investigating Corruption, Too!

GOVERNOR SEEKS SPOTLIGHT AMID CORRUPTION PROBE

By FITSNEWS  ||  S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley is not going to be outdone by what could wind up being the largest anti-corruption investigation in South Carolina history.

The first-term governor – who should have been indicted on corruption charges two years ago – is weighing on the matter in a variety of different ways.

First, Haley is unloading on S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell – her longtime nemesis who was indicted on nine counts of state-level corruption earlier this month (and arraigned on those charges earlier this week).

“This is a good example, along with several others, that we’ve had on why we need to do (ethics reform),” Haley told reporters this week in responding to questions about the Harrell case.

Really?  For those of you with short memories, Haley is a total ethics reform hypocrite.  Second of all the “ethics reform” legislation she championed this year was terrible – and would have actually moved South Carolina backward on this critical issue.

Anyway … Haley’s other play?  Touting the “work” of her Inspector General’s office – which according to multiple sources is conducting its own investigation into “the budget process and legislative earmarks” in the S.C. State House.

Hmmmm …

Obviously we support any effort by any agency to expose corruption in government.  There’s certainly no shortage of it in South Carolina.  But Haley exposing corruption?  That’s a good one …

I call BULL SHIT on this feckless liar Haley!
I seem to remember when the Ethics Bill was being debated, she was in New York at the Waldorf with Her Rock Star Joan Jett!! Why was she not in South Carolina showing some leadership and pushing to get Ethics reform Passed?
She certainly sent he minions and sycophants in an attempt to cover up the child murders at her DSS!
Nikki, you know me and you are a pathological liar!!
You asked my help when you ran for the House and again when you ran for Governor!
I was at the Capitol City Club on primary night. Spent a great deal of time talking with your brother and other family members!
You cannot tell the truth and DO NOT deserve reelection!

Don’t worry … all of these corrupt fools will be pointing fingers at each other and slinging dirt very soon. The temperature seems certain to become even more uncomfortable for the house and the senate. US Attorney Bill Nettles stuck his neck out. The people of South Carolina are now fully expecting federal arrest. They expect nothing less.

South Carolina needs term limits and recall elections!!
These people refuse to Police themselves. We get lip service (sorry Nikki) and nothing more. They talk a good game; but, talk is ALL we get NO action on ethics period!
Vote them OUT, start over and give us term limits and the ability to hold recall elections.
Senator Larry martin was quoted as saying, “We don’t need recall elections. It will make elections too difficult”. Too difficult for whom?
Not the Voters/taxpayers! The slime seeking reelection!
VOTE THEM ALL OUT, STARTING WITH HALEY!!!

Haley needs to burn in hell, as far as I am concerned. This is nothing more than a political smokescreen of hers. Throw her in prison with Harrell. They can share a cell together.

“Haley is a total ethics reform hypocrite.”
What? She’s not a hypocrite. She wants to make illegal all the unethical things she did legally in the past.

Reply
nitrat September 30, 2014 at 10:30 pm

She did not do them legally in the past.
She just threatened to expose all the others who were doing what she was doing and the House Ethics Committee just let it all pass.

Reply
Bible Thumper September 30, 2014 at 11:36 pm

If they were going to find her guilty for those charges, then her threat is legitimate and morally justifiable. If the ethics committee found her actions violated ethics rules then everyone else who violated them should be exposed.

Yeah…that kinda makes her a hypocrite.

Bible Thumper September 30, 2014 at 11:56 pm

Hypocrite? It’s an overused word. I may be opposed to a tax break, but if I’m eligible, I’ll take it. I may be for a helmet law, but until it’s law I won’t use one. I may support a law preventing legislators from heading a PAC, but wouldn’t want my legislator to put himself at a disadvantage by not heading one if allowed by law. Nothing hypocritical about any of these positions.

The only entities that should be doing investigations are law enforcement officials. Not politicians. What are they attempting to do? Find evidence that can be used against them, and then alter it or make it vanish into thin air? They are all squirming with worry. And it shows.
