Gov. Nikki Haley stuck her foot in her mouth again last week, posting on her Twitter and Facebook pages referring to domestic violence prevention coalition and “special interests” in tandem.
In a series of tweets detailing funding vetoes, Haley mentioned The South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (SCCADVASA) as an example of groups that receive “back door” funding from the state. SCCADVASA is a group of 23 domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and response agencies across the state of South Carolina. Haley’s veto would have eliminated $435,000 in funding for rape crisis centers in the state. (cont.)
