House Democrats want Gov. Nikki Haley to take a confidentiality cue from an unlikely source: disgraced former Gov. Mark Sanford.
A circuit court judge dismissed an ethics lawsuit filed by Republican activist John Rainey against Haley last week, but that case could still land in front of the House Ethics Committee. If it does, Democrats want Haley to waive her right to confidentiality.
"The public deserves to know if their governor is under investigation," said Minority Leader Harry Ott. "If a complaint is filed against the Governor and she has nothing to hide, this is a great opportunity for her to live up to her 'transparency' rhetoric."
