As media reports from a small political blogger that Gov. Nikki Haley was about to be indicted spread through the online world on Thursday, the first-term governor and her office remained quiet.
But as more and more mainstream media, including The State newspaper, began to pick up the story, Haley took to social media late Thursday night to strongly deny any such allegations.
"Sorry fellas. I'm not going anywhere no matter how many lies you put on a blog. The days of dirty blogger politics will come to an end when people stop paying these guys to spread trash," someone posted to Haley's Facebook account at nearly midnight.
The same post was copied to Haley's Twitter account.
