    COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, imploring party activists Friday night to defeat this state’s Indian-American governor, predicted next year’s Democratic standard-bearer would “send Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Haley was raised in South Carolina and attended college here, but her parents were Sikh immigrants. Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage. Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.” Before being elected governor...

    The self-described "progressive" Democracy Now! news program recently interviewed Virginia Tech professor Nikki Giovanni, who taught a class in which VA Tech mass murderer Seung-Hui Cho was (briefly) a student, before she demanded that he leave the class. In the interview, Professor Giovanni advanced some rather startling notions about guns: "I think that guns are not one of our good ideas. I read the Constitution, and I didn’t see anything that said that any fool that wants a gun should have one. What did I miss?" Well, one thing she seems to have missed is that the Constitution does not...
  • Joy Behar Peppers Gov. Nikki Haley with Liberal Talking Points During Segment On Her New Book

    Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) appeared on the April 3 edition of ABC's The View to discuss her new book, “Can’t Is Not an Option.” Liberal journalist and View host Barbara Walters hoped to conduct a relatively positive interview, hailing Haley as a "true American success story." But doing a positive segment on a successful female conservative Republican politician was just not an option for liberal co-host Joy Behar, who tried to transform the segment into an occasion to further the liberal media's "war on women" meme.

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she’s being smeared once again by another blogger posting “lies” and spreading “trash” about her online. “Sorry fellas,” Haley wrote on her Facebook page Thursday. “I’m not going anywhere no matter how many lies you put on a blog.” Haley’s comments are in response to a report by The Palmetto Public Record, a South Carolina political blog, that she could be indicted in a federal investigation soon. She has denounced the post as totally false. The blog said she could be indicted in federal court over the finances of the Sikh Religious Society of...

    On the news that the job-destroying National Labor Relations Board is mandating employers in all 50 states to post notices advising employees of their rights to unionize (and destroy more jobs), South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley posted the following response on her Facebook page: Right next to that sign that is being mandated by Barack Obama’s union cheerleaders at the NLRB, I encourage all S.C. employers to put up another sign: in our state, every worker has the freedom to reject the efforts to form unions and keep their paychecks for themselves and their families instead of paying dues to...

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is facing her first big lawsuit after saying the state would try to keep unions out of the Boeing Inc. plant in North Charleston. The lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Charleston by the International Association of Machinists and AFL-CIO asked for a court order telling Haley and her director of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation to butt out and remain neutral in matters concerning union activities. "There's no secret I don't like the unions," Haley said when asked about the litigation. "We are a right-to-work state. I will do everything...

    South Carolina Republican Gov.-elect Nikki Haley challenged President Barack Obama over his landmark health care overhaul Thursday in a candid, personal exchange in front of Cabinet members and newly elected governors from across the country. In an exchange that White House aides didn't dispute, Obama rejected Haley's request to repeal the health care bill... "I said the people of South Carolina and the small businesses of South Carolina cannot afford the mandated health care law they had passed," Haley said after the meeting. "I told him that our economy is already in a tough spot, and our budget cannot sustain...

    Growing up in Bamberg, S.C., Nikki Haley was a frank girl — for good reason. By age 13, she was doing the accounting for her family’s fashion-retail business and had to keep a close eye on the bottom line. Two decades later, Haley, the Palmetto State’s 38-year-old governor-elect, pledges to bring that same business-friendly, just-the-facts approach to the state capital. This week, she sat down with National Review for a wide-ranging interview about her gubernatorial goals and the future of the Republican party. Haley, before having even taken office, is widely considered to be one of the GOP’s rising national...

    South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley is launching a new attack-- calling out Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for wasting billions of dollars by preventing the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository from going online. Haley, whose state contains two nuclear waste processing sites, said $20 billion already has been spent on the facility 100 miles north of Las Vegas, including $1.2 billion from South Carolina.<SNIP> "We are not interested in investing in any more Nevada real estate when we get nothing in return. If the feds want to renege on the promise to keep Yucca open, they must refund the...

    South Carolina's famously rough politics are testing a relative newcomer who is hoping tea-party support will help her succeed embattled Gov. Mark Sanford. State Rep. Nikki Haley has emerged from the back of the pack over the past month to take the lead in the polls ahead of Tuesday's Republican gubernatorial primary. Her message of limited government has resonated with voters, as well as the endorsements from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and one of the state's most popular political figures—the governor's ex-wife, Jenny Sanford. But Mrs. Haley is navigating allegations of marital infidelity made by two men, one an...

    A South Carolina blogger, and former aide to Governor Mark Sanford claims he had an affair with GOP gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley. On his blog Monday morning, Will Folks wrote, “several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki [Haley].“ Haley’s campaign “emphatically” denied the claim to WIS-TV in Columbia. Folks went on to say, “...within the last forty-eight hours several pieces of information which purportedly document a prior physical relationship between myself and Rep. Haley have begun to be leaked slowly, piece by piece, to members of the mainstream media. I am told...
