    I remember a time when conservatives frowned upon an executive who vetoed every other bill put in front of them.

    I just saw the 111-0 overturn of Rape Crisis funding.

    to quote from the Palmetto Public Record:
    “State representatives voted unanimously (111-0) to override Gov. Haley’s veto of nearly half a million dollars in funding for South Carolina’s 15 rape crisis centers. In response, the governor posted on Facebook, “It’s wrong and another loophole for legislators and special interests to use.”

    Because in Bizarro World, rape victims are considered special interests… Unlike companies like Boeing and Walmart, right guys?

    Lawmakers also voted 88-22 to override the veto of 0,000 in AIDS prevention and treatment funding. With such wide majorities in the House, it’s hard to see how senators could vote to sustain those vetoes tomorrow.”

    I love this part though: “In response, the governor posted on Facebook, “It’s wrong and another loophole for legislators and special interests to use.”

    Yes, Nikki, rape victims are “special interests”. However you, ya nervy bag of wind are of NO interest.

    Veto 51: Prevent Funding SC Coalition against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault – Override 111-0 (FUCK YOU NIKKI HALEY)

    I’m surprised that no one voted against the override, but really fucking impressed it was such a solid vote. Well done, representatives.
