Republican members of the South Carolina state legislature are furious at the husband of Governor Nikki Haley. While on duty with the National Guard, Major Halley posted on Facebook comments which termed any member of the state legislature who voted against a bill proposed by his wife to be a coward. State Senators were further infuriated at her husband for inferring that those who died fighting for their country would have backed his wife’s ideas.
Military regulations forbid anyone in uniform to become engaged in political activities. Haley published those comments while on a National Guard military exercise. At least this is one example in which Barack Obama will not be blamed for Republican anger toward one another. The major should be dismissed from the National Guard so he can return home to guard his wife.
