Report: DOJ may indict SC Gov. Nikki Haley for tax fraud
The Daily Caller ^ | March 29, 2012 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 03/29/2012 1:47:36 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The Department of Justice may indict South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley on charges of tax fraud, according to the Palmetto Public Record, a South Carolina political blog.

PPR reported that a “highly ranked” federal government official “privately confirmed rumblings of an investigation” and the “possible indictment of the governor.” The report said the official, however, could not provide a specific time frame.

However, two “well-placed legal experts” said the DOJ indictment could come as early as next week, according to the report.

The alleged tax fraud reportedly occurred during Haley’s time managing finances for the Sikh worship center in South Carolina run by her father, Dr. Ajit Singh Randhawa.

In addition to reports of impending federal criminal charges, a group of South Carolina Democratic lawmakers is calling on Haley to waive her right to treat confidentially any ethics complaints that may be pending against her.

Race baiting doesn’t have much to do with it if they have something illegal to hold on her.

Hey DOJ, how about investigating Media Matters or the NEW Black Panthers? Oh, never mind, they are proud members of President Obama’s Regime.

I haven’t followed what this woman has done since her election, but she apparently scares the sh@t out of somebody. I have never seen such a concentrated stream of efforts to ‘get’ someone.

The federal gov’t has been attacking SC for a long time...Striking down our Voter ID law.....they don’t like our Arizona like imigration law...and probably are angry at our AG suring over Obamacare. On top of that the Kenyan Muzzie probably doesn’t like our Sihk Gov. I would hazard a guess that South Carolina isn’t one of his favorite states! I can live with that....As long as it keeps his no good Marxist loving butt out!

Let me guess. A MAJOR media story if she is indicted, only to be cleared after the election. The MSM will make hay for months and months without mentioning Corzine or other Dem scandals.

Yep. The gloves have been off, why doesn’t the stupid party recognise it? Could it be because they’ve sunk from party over principle to personal power over party? They’re not even trying to protect their own anymore, much less their constituents.

But with Holder, if you show up at a polling place during a national election in military garb and brandishing billy clubs to intimidate voters...that’s okay, of course if you are a militant black.

We have a governemnt and administration of absolute criminals in charge and the quicker we can turn them out, and do so in an unmistakable fashion...the better.

No idea if there is any truth to this or not. But what I do know is that Bambi's buddy Corzine lied under oath and illegally shifting a couple hundred million around to plug the leaks on the SS Jon Corzine. Nothing but Crickets.

Yes, but isn't it interesting the federal government is investigating what must be the smallest Sikh religious center in the world? I mean, it's in South Carolina. Yeah, this smells.

Methinks some need to get headoutof ass with the stupidly wishing federal indictments on republicans, and I also believe Nikki was considered a hero here now you want unjustified criminal charges to help Obama, all because she supported Romney? Remove heads from butts please.

It certainly does when you look at how black “churches” operate with impunity.

If Obama is goin’ down he’s gonna take a whole lot of opponents down with him.

That worked in Alaska; cleared after the election (I don;t know if that was what you were referring to).

Never, Holder is on record as saying black on white will not be prosecuted. By the way, Obamarama Ding-dong or Obamaralamadingdong is my very favorite nickname for the Imposter in Chief. It seems to symbolize the whole circus-like behavior of this farcical administration. Liberals or Progressives are such clowns. Evil as all get out, but still clowns. Obamarama Ding-Dong is the head clown. What a joke.

Sorry Mr(or Miss) Dude, Nikki Haley is definitely NOT a RINO. It’s true that if it came to a choice between her and Tim Scott to “take out” the wobbly Lindsey Graham in the 2014 Republican primary, I’d go with Congressman Scott. But that’s mainly because she was an early endorser of Mitt Romney.

Nikki Haley is now getting the Senator Stevens/Sarah Palin treatment from the national and South Carolina Democrats—including the Obama-Holder Department of INJUSTICE.

If you are a true conservative, you’ll try to build up a CONSERVATIVE Republican party instead of trying to tear it apart (I’ve seen some of your “3rd Party” postings in your history). That’s my opinion anyhow on how we can best DEFEAT the Democrat Oppressors.

Democrat election strategy for destroying opposition:
1. Hostile IRS audits of GOP pols and supporters.
2. Black Panther vigilante squads
3. Destroy commercial sponsors of conservative media.

Taken right out of the Stasi, KGB handbooks.

Their “war on women” GOP Governors continues.Why do the Dems hate women so much? Look at all of the men who have been given a pass. (Just thought a little back at them was appropriate). They can’t stand for people in leadership to be Republican while woman or while black or while hispanic. The list is long.

I really don’t care if I offend your sensabilities: the RINOS in the GOP and the GOP-e have pretty well run this party (and country) down.

You don’t like it?

I am just sick of them all around. Wasn’t a 3rd party guy till the GOP started 1)Betraying the Tea Party almost immediately after the 2010 election and 2)Pushed liberal Rino Romney on us.

Nikki Haley endorsed ROMNEY that’s RINO enough.
