Here Are Nikki Haley’s Seventeen “Consistent Conservatives”




|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley made quite a stink at the 2015 SCGOP convention when she went on the warpath – again – against the “Republican-controlled” S.C. General Assembly.

According to Haley, only seventeen of the 105 “Republican” members of the state legislature were consistent conservatives.  Frankly, we’d put that number much lower … and we would question many if not most of Haley’s choices (to say nothing of her credibility in compiling such a list).

For example, former Democrat Larry Martin made the grade with Haley … a guy who once got an “F-minus” from the fiscally conservative S.C. Club for Growth.

Does he belong on a list like this?  Seriously … just because he’s carrying Haley’s water on a ridiculous “ethics reform” bill (one that would actually do more harm than good), does that make him a “consistent conservative?”

Please … Larry Martin isn’t a conservative.  Nor is he even really a “Republican” (although the border on that latter designation has obviously moved considerably).

And here, in all their glory, are Haley’s seventeen “consistent conservatives.”
