make the highway department allow Clemson to repaint the tiger paws on the off-campus roadways coming into town. That should only take one phone call from our governor.


Unless her family can profit from it, she's not

She can't do that. She's already addresed this. It is a law. She does not have power to allow people to break the law....

One subject she won't be discussing on the road is her family's scandal with the IRS. Her parents are being accused of raising funds for her gubernatorial campaign through their non-profit Sikh Temple. That's a political no-no. The Palmetto Public Record reports:

According to documents obtained by Palmetto Public Record, the Internal Revenue Service has been investigating since March 2011 whether the Sikh Religious Society of South Carolina illegally supported a political candidate during Haley’s campaign for governor, violating the organization’s tax-exempt status.
As a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Sikh temple is “absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for elective public office.” According to the IRS, even written statements of position in favor of a candidate “clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity” and may result in revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.
But documents which appear to be the temple’s own newsletters clearly advocate for Haley’s election, asking (and later thanking) members for their political and financial support. The organization also seems to have held a September 2010 fundraiser for Haley’s gubernatorial campaign, with four of the five organizers listed on the temple’s board of trustees.
And that's only part the family's problems. There is the mystery revolving around a large bank loan the Randhawa family took out to help finance a new Sikh Temple. Contractors were never paid, and the temple was never completed, but at the same time Nikki Haley was elected Governor and her family built a huge new lake house. The The Palmetto Public Record reports:

In 2009, the Sikh Society of South Carolina took out a $750,000 loan from BB&T Bank with the help of bank president Mike Brenan. The purpose of the loan was to build a new temple on the Sikh Society’s land in Chapin, but for some reason the contractors never got paid. At least five lawsuits have been filed against the Sikh Society since 2010, alleging that the group bilked contractors out of nearly $130,000.Meanwhile, the new temple sits half-complete off Broad River Road as weeds take over the abandoned construction site.
In order to recoup their money, the contractors have asked a judge to foreclose on the temple and sell the land, leaving the Sikh Society without a place to worship.
So what happened to the money? Did it “disappear” into the Randhawa family’s million-dollar waterfront home on Lake Murray, or (as our sources have speculated) did some of it go into the governor’s campaign account? Whatever happened to the money, we do know what happened to Brenan: Gov. Nikki Haley appointed him to the state Board of Education.
Yesterday, Haley appeared on ABC's The View, which was...interesting...

The IRS investigated her family. Proof is right there.

key word is "investigating"....they've found nothing and none of these ridiculous investigations that have happened have found nothing....so again, back to my point....you got nothing....

The legislature makes laws, but it is up to the executive branch to enforce them. There are plenty of laws that go unenforced now.

Why key lime? As a Floridian, I know there are two Floridas, and Orlando on northward has little to do with key limes. Tallahassee is southern Alabama. Why doesn't Scott offer up something more indicative of the area, like some meth, froglegs, or a partially assembled 1984 IROC?

Nikki Haley haters and their media arm "The State" have been sniping at our Governor before and since her resounding election with all sorts of sordid, ridiculous, fabricated, and unproven charges and innuendo. She is doing a great job for SC. That is what we elected her to do!

GO NIKKI!
