Haley Agrees To Pay Fine, Forward 8 Donations

COLUMBIA, S.C. -

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has agreed to pay a $3,500 fine for not properly identifying eight donors to her 2010 campaign.

In a consent order signed this week with the State Ethics Commission, Haley also agrees to forward the combined $4,200 in donations to the Children's Trust Fund and reimburse the ethics agency $2,000.

It resolves a complaint filed in July 2011 by a state Democratic Party employee. It accused the Republican governor of violating state ethics law by not disclosing the addresses of dozens of donors.

The commission determined eight addresses weren't supplied within the required seven days of receipt. Only one donor who gave $200 was not eventually identified.

In the order, Haley says her campaign's non-compliance with the law's strict requirements was inadvertent.
