SC House member: Send Haley ethics complaint to AG

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A House Ethics Committee member says she will propose sending an ethics complaint against Gov. Nikki Haley to the attorney general.

Republican Rep. Joan Brady of Columbia wrote in a letter to the committee’s chairman that public attention and perception that the case has become political could affect the panel’s ability to provide an unbiased review and judgment.

Brady says she will make the motion at Wednesday’s committee meeting.

The committee voted earlier this month to dismiss all charges against the Republican governor regarding her previous employers while she was in the House. The vote came immediately after the panel unanimously found there was probable cause to investigate. That vote opened the case to the public.

Two weeks later, the committee asked for more information from Haley.
