Wow, this has gone beyond ridiculous. I’m starting to think Nikki Haley must be the most honest politician in history. With all of these charges, investigations, hearings, etc and her political opponents still can’t find anything that will stick. I would venture a guess that most of them could not stand up to the same level of scrutiny.

I just wish John Rainey would get a grip on himself and quit wasting the time and money of the tax payers. Whatever might have been found is surely not going to be found. If she did anything wrong, it's been long covered by now and any further distraction is just Mr. Rainey's way of satisfying his group of supporters at the State House who simply do not want ANY woman in charge or involved in any decisions in this state. I did not support her, but frankly enough is enough. Is this state not among the bottom 5 in the nation? Why don't we just try and move forward.
