(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- A member of the South Carolina House Ethics Committe who voted to dismiss a grievance filed against Gov. Haley now wants to reopen it and send it to the state Attorney General's Office for review, the Post and Courier reports.
Rep. Joan Brady (R-Columbia) said that too many "political factors" were present when the committee dealt with the allegations that Haley illegally lobbied while a member of the House, and said the committee is not equipped to deal with criminal charges. A Democratic lawmaker who asked the committee to reconsider the grievance said that Brady's position was "baloney" and that the committee should take care of the matter itself, the paper says.
The committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon.
