Hey, Another Post “Capper” Got Wrong
(Oh, who the hell am I kidding?)
COLUMBIA – The Internal Revenue Service determined last fall that an investigation of the Sikh Religious Society where Gov. Nikki Haley’s parents are leaders was not warranted, according to a letter the IRS provided the Governor’s Office Friday.
“After further consideration of your organization, we have determined that an investigation is not warranted at this time for the above tax period,” the letter states.
“We did not conduct an examination for the above period.”
The tax year the letter refers to is 2009.
“It’s incredibly frustrating when unaccountable bloggers will take money to smear trash about somebody and the mainstream media will pick it up and run with it,” Haley said Friday, alluding to the coverage that followed an initial post by a South Carolina political blogger this week claiming the IRS had been investigating the temple since March 2011.
A spokesman for the governor said Friday’s letter represented the closure of the case that the blogger posted initial documents about.
So, to recap, Gov. Nikki Haley is not going to be indicted anytime soon, and the mea culpa from the left-wing blog — which has lost any and all creditability — can be read here.
