We can all breathe a sigh of relief.
The mystery man who filled out Gov. Nikki Haley's job application with the Lexington Medical Center — you know, the one where Haley listed her income as $125,000 instead of $22,000 as she claimed to the IRS — has been apprehended, according to a FITSNews report.
And evidently, the application apparition is none other than ... wait for it .... Nikki Haley. (And she would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids.)
Here's what Will Folks says:
Now, according to the hospital’s latest FOIA response, we find out that the two-page section of the application (which Haley admits filling out and signing) and the five-page section (which she denies filling out) were actually part of the same online application.
“Based upon a review of LMC’s information systems, it appears that the application was completed electronically on August 5, 2008 beginning at 5:39 p.m.,” hospital attorney David B. Summer wrote to Rainey. “The ’2-page section’ and ’5-page section’ to which you refer are both part of a single electronic application.”
According to the hospital, Haley personally signed the two page section at a later date — and that this signature covered the entire seven pages of information that she submitted.
