BUT … WHY?

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term as governor of South Carolina … so why is she raising cash for her campaign committee?

That’s a good question.  But after receiving a tip this week from a source in the “funded community,” we can confirm Haley has been reaching out to several donors in an attempt to replenish her campaign account.

Haley raised more than $8 million for her 2014 reelection effort – most of which was spent on advertising and consultants.  According to the latest campaign finance reports, she had a little over $370,000 left in her campaign account after spending roughly $170,000 during the first quarter of 2015 ($100,000 of which went to the company owned by her longtime advisor, Tim Pearson).

Why would Haley need to replenish her account if she’s not running for office again? After all, the governor wouldn’t be able to transfer the money to another race – nor would she be able to use the money as leverage in her ongoing battles with “Republican” state lawmakers.

Haley could, however, use campaign funds to pay for various travel-related expenses that aren’t covered by the state – which would be wise given her history.

Or she could use the money to run for governor in 2022 ….

Don’t laugh!

Former S.C. governor Mark Sanford is still sitting on more than $1 million after his 2006 reelection over Democrat Tommy Moore – which has fueled speculation that he might re-seek the office he held from 2003-11.

Oh well, if we get any additional details on Haley’s latest fundraising efforts we’ll be sure to let you know …

How about this?
If a person can no longer run for any specific office for any specific reason (term limits, disgraced out of office, jailed etc), they are required to legally disperse all the funds within a year of their last election or date they were forced out?
And, they certainly should not be allowed to continue to raise money for a campaign fund established for them to run for a particular office if they can no longer run for the office again for any reason.
That little loophole is what makes a campaign account a slush fund.

Looks like she continues to “disperse” her “Nikki Haley for Governor” funds to play politics and for the 2016 election cycle. I recall she used that account to fund her bashing of the Machinist Union’s attempt to unionize Boeing.

Likely, she is perhaps she is positioning herself for a post-2016 situation.

“Paid for by Nikki Haley for Governor”

Or, maybe she will go the Sarah Palin route:
* Resign the Governorship after the election.
* Build her brand.
* Host a reallity TV show.
* Go on the speaking circuit.

The thought of Nikki running against Sanford is delightful.

Just about ANYBODY could win, after they have effectively canceled each other out by spitting the douchebag vote.

Isn’t she allowed to use campaign funds for a criminal defense lawyer to represent her for charges stemming from her service as governor?

Dynegy energy seems to be running a rate “shell” game.

Nikki can run all she wants; but the energy doesn’t lie……..

Nikki Haley and the rest of the idiots in this state are maggots that feast off of the rot in this state.
