Haley takes witness stand in ethics hearing
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has been called as a witness in a surprise move by her attorneys at her ethics hearing.
Haley's attorney called her as a witness Thursday evening. She said she wants the truth to be told, adding that she's done nothing wrong.
It's been alleged that, as a state representative, Haley engaged in illegal lobbying while working as a consultant for a highway engineering company and also as a hospital fundraiser.
Haley maintains that she acted within the law in her work for Lexington Medical Center and Wilbur Smith Associates. She's said that her work on the hospital's open-heart center application was for her constituents, not an employer.
Her attorney said the Republican activist whose complaint launched an investigation and the hearing, was in the wrong.
