Nikki Haley Could Be Indicted
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley could be in severe legal jeopardy.
The Palmetto Public Record (“Haley indictment imminent? Stay tuned…“)
Two well-placed legal experts have independently told Palmetto Public Record they expect the U.S. Department of Justice to issue an indictment against South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on charges of tax fraud as early as this week.
A highly ranked federal official has also privately confirmed rumblings of an investigation and possible indictment of the governor, though the official was not aware of the specific timeframe.
Yesterday, Palmetto Public Record exclusively reported that the Internal Revenue Service has been investigating since March of 2011 the Sikh worship center run by Gov. Haley’s father. At least five lawsuits have been filed against the Sikh Society of South Carolina since 2010, alleging that the group bilked contractors out of nearly $130,000 for the construction of a new temple.
The Feds don’t indict sitting governors unless they’ve got a rock solid case. Stay tuned, indeed.
