The 2010 Discusties: Person of the Year countdown #1 Nikki Haley

by William Moultrie

Charleston – Who else could be number one on our list of persons of the year for South Carolina? A year ago she wouldn’t have even made our top ten, but sex allegations and endorsements by a couple of Sanfords helped propel Nikki Haley the GOP nomination and ultimately to her current spot as governor-in-waiting.

Governor-elect Nikki Haley had one hell of a year.

Governor-elect Nikki Haley had one hell of a year.

We’ve had a lot of fun with Nikki over the past eight months or so, but she’s made it pretty easy on us. There’s the sex scandals she doesn’t do enough to deny, her exceedingly loose definition of “transparency,” her self-touted-yet-widely-discredited accountant skills, and all sorts of other sorta sketchy details that would have derailed most campaigns. In fact, if she’d been running in any other year, she likely would have lost to Vincent Sheheen, as she performed much worse in the election than any of her fellow GOP statewide candidates.

Yet, she’s going to be our Governor. Of course, she has promised to resign if Will Folks’ or any of the other sexual allegations are proven to be true, but we’ll have to wait on his book to see what happens next in that story.

The good bet would be on seeing a lot more Nikki Haley coverage on this site for the foreseeable future, so thanks for everything Nikki, we’ll be seeing you soon.

    The sex allegation was so poorly timed, too unbelieveable at this point. Face it, the enduring power of Palin gave her this seat.
