FULL TITLE: Nikki Haley was facing a formal complaint over ethics after series of private jet flights funded by businessmen from her native South Carolina.
UN ambassador Nikki Haley, who stunned Washington with her surprise announcement she is resigning her post, was facing an ethics complaint over her acceptance of private travel between South Carolina and Washington, D.C.
Haley had disclosed the flights on her government form for 2017. But the issue of improper private jet uses has dogged multiple administration officials, and led to the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed the complaint against Haley, who has earned high marks for navigating global affairs and the challenges of the Trump administration, on Monday.
The complaint noted she accepted flights from three separate businessmen from her home state of South Carolina on luxury aircraft between the state and Washington, D.C. She was accompanied by her husband on the flights.
Haley claimed exceptions due to personal relationships with the jet owners.
Federal ethics regulations prohibit employees from soliciting or accepting gifts given because of the employees official position. They also direct employees to consider declining otherwise permissible gifts if they believe a reasonable person would question their integrity or impartiality as a result of accepting the gifts,' according to the letter from CREW seeking an Office of Inspector General probe.
'Ambassador Haley asserted that each flight qualified for an exception to the rules for gifts based on personal relationships with the donors,' according to the letter. 'It is not clear, however, that the personal relationship exception applied to these gifts.'

Flying commercial doesn’t seem right either...
The only surprise is the elitists who think the laws don't apply to them still do this stuff.
Well....I guess its good she left.
Why are these people so stupid about these things?
So, she fully disclosed the information and apparently whichever department that is responsible for reviewing such things determined that it was okay. Then a liberal hit group that has harrassed the Trump administration from the beginning complains ....
She also brought a lot of business to South Carolina and ran a clean administration. She had to endure a lot of racism and slurs against women. There are still too many people dreaming of the Ante Bellam South.
Thr Marxist left has put a target on Trump’s administrators when their out and about in public.
I can't say I blame them, flew in a G3 once 37 minutes for what was normally 8 hrs of driving.
After what Rand Paul went through the other day at the airport with the crazies harassing him, maybe it should be a security perk from now on.
More importantly what does it say about flying commercial, no one wants to do it anymore, it sucks....
Anymore a lot of these ethics rules are just a set-up for Liberal activists to take down Republicans whenever the mood strikes them.
a la Sarah Palin.
Wanting to preserve our heritage is NOT dreaming about ante vellum South
Our ancestors fought in that war and are buried in those graves....
Dont even think about erasing history!
Haley disclosed it. And the govt saved costs. The REAL problem would have been if it hadn’t been disclosed and the money was pocketed.
But, the piranha press would have tasted blood in the water... and even the slightest impropriety would have been hammered on until the press had a mutilated Trump admin official hanging in effigy.
CREW - yet another Soros funded hit squad
That she became part of the US being on the wrong side in the Mideast?
And because of that ME stance she was thanked by Bibi. Not Abbas. And thanked by the rest of us who do not like the ultra-violent Palestinians (aka, cannon-fodder) - the scum of the Arab world according to other Arabs.
I am sketchy about South Asians who talk thru their teeth ( and hate Confederate heritage)
this is a joke. She disclosed. Tom Price didnt or at least totally flaunted his extravagance.
She told Trump months ago that she was going to leave...
She’s cute, but after the Confederate Flag debacle, I have no use for her.
What next, defend the Antifa flag? Why not? Same party, same entitlement mindset, and same use of violence against its opponents.
