Nikki Haley Ripped For Lying About Judicial Race

GOVERNOR ACCUSED OF LYING ABOUT HER PREVIOUS VOTE IN SUPPORT OF A LAWMAKER’S SPOUSE

|| By FITSNEWS || Maybe next time S.C. governor Nikki Haley will just keep her mouth shut …

As FITS reported earlier this week, Haley’s decision to hypocritically wade into a judicial race had dire repercussions for the candidate she supported … or to be more precise, it spawned a flood of votes for the candidate the governor opposed.

That’s too bad, too … we believe, like Haley, that state lawmakers shouldn’t elect their spouses to judgeships (or any other appointment).  In fact we said so repeatedly in the days leading up to this contentious election.

But Haley – as is so often the case – didn’t have a leg to stand on in making that argument.

In fact another example of her hypocrisy was uncovered by reporter Jamie Self of The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper (although Self’s story was inexplicably held until after the vote).

According to Self’s story, in 2009 Haley – then a state lawmaker – “voted with an overwhelming majority of lawmakers to defeat an attempt to remove (Supreme Court Justice Kaye) Hearn” from a legislative ballot.

In other words, Haley voted to keep Hearn’s name on the ballot.

Questioned at a press conference this week, Haley denied voting for Hearn.

“Did I vote for Kaye Hearn? Did I vote for Kaye Hearn? I did not vote for Kaye Hearn because I remember that election very well,” Haley said.

So do others …

“She was for Hearn,” a fellow member of Haley’s county delegation told FITS.  “It was no secret.”

Not only that, Hearn’s election was by acclamation – meaning it required the affirmative consent of every member of the S.C. House of Representatives.

Don’t believe us?  Just ask S.C. Rep. Dan Tripp – who in 2005 was the only member of the S.C. House to vote against the nomination of Bobby Harrell as the chamber’s new Speaker.

Asked whether she protested the unanimous vote for Hearn, Haley told the reporter she was “offended that you’re asking this.”

“Offended?”

Democrats pounced …

“When Governor Haley was in the House, she clearly voted to elect spouses of Republican legislators to judicial posts,” S.C. Rep. Todd Rutherford said.  “We’ve always known Haley was a hypocrite, but she continues to prove it on an astonishingly frequent basis.”

Rutherford wasn’t done …

“It isn’t often that you see a politician blatantly lie about a previous vote when roll-call votes are public record,” he said. “I was flabbergasted when I saw Governor Haley try to rewrite history and then call it ‘offensive’ that the reporter would even bring it up.  But people often act erratic when they’ve been caught in a lie. Governor Haley owes the entire General Assembly an apology for this unbelievable display of hypocrisy.”

Wow …

Rutherford shouldn’t hold his breath for that apology, though.

After all, we’re all still waiting on Haley’s explanation for this bald-faced lie … and many, many others.

Oh well …

“At least Haley didn’t call (the reporter) a little girl,” one administration critic told FITS, in reference to this incident.  “(It’s) progress.”

So many lies, yet so little time to defend them all. Where’s my gimp? I have frustrations that can only be solved via some anal penetration, nipple clips, & a whip.

“Have one of my aids make sure the gimp is wearing his uniform too. No, not the military one,you dumbass!”

I am no fan of Haley; her incompetence seems to know no bounds. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Nikki Haley is the best thing to happen to the democratic party in SC in decades. That being said, what does it say about the status of the democratic party in sc that they haven’t managed to beat her in an election for the sc house or in a gubernatorial race?

Does not bode well for either party. The democrats have run weak campaigns, and the republicans have run on cliches about “liberals.”

All one really needs to know about the electorate is that a visit from Palin propelled Haley to the governorship.

It doesn’t matter who the Democrats run.

SC is rock ribbed Republican like it used to be Democratic.

Historically ,South Carolinians seem to like a One Party system ,while demonizing those of the other party for no reason other than they are not part of the present majority.

For the foreseeable future statewide elections are meaningless ritualistic exercises.The REAL election is the Republican Primary.

Other than that,

It’s a Great Day in SC!

Is this really news??

You know Haley is lying: “every time her lips are moving.”

It’s just unbelievable how many people refuse to even look into the high crimes Haley has committed. The Lexington Church goers (among many others) can’t even accept her crimes, when Haley actually takes bribes directly from Walmart to keep out Amazon.com from hiring 1000s of Lexington county citizens.
It’s just plain SAD!

Governor Haley is not a liar. She tells the truth. I remember, and my mind is like a steel trap. Why, I remember just exactly one year ago how she single handedly kept the roads clear of ice, and the Ravel Bridge open 24/7.

Just for fun I read the House Journal for May 13, 2009, to see what the fuss is about. A bunch of nonsense as it turns out. I have no recollection of why Sen. Bright’s panties were in a bunch over this election, but when it was apparent that Judge Hearn had the votes to win, he moved to reject the entire slate (Judges Few and Jefferson had dropped out). Rep. Haley voted with the overwhelming majority to table that motion. The Legislature then elected Hearn by acclamation. Having actually participated in those elections, I can tell you that a couple of people said “aye” and the rest said nothing.

Good luck finding any evidence of whom Haley supported. The race was decided before the joint session started.
