Democrats call for Haley application investigation

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Democrats say Gov. Nikki Haley's hospital job application with an inflated salary should be investigated by the State Law Enforcement Division.

Democratic Party chairwoman Carol Fowler said Friday that SLED needs to investigate who may have stolen Haley's identification and used it to falsify the application for a fundraising job at Lexington Medical Center.

The job application states that Haley had earned $125,000 at the clothing business her parents ran. She had earned $22,000.

Haley said Wednesday she had nothing to do with filling out the application, never signed it and never supplied the salary figure.

The hospital said Haley was told to fill out the application and that the hospital did not fill it out for her.
