S.C. hospital created fundraising job for Nikki Haley

In 2006, Nikki Haley's finances were a mess. The Republican gubernatorial candidate reported a family income of $40,269 on her 2006 tax returns. Then, the foundation arm of Lexington Medical Center came to Haley's financial rescue in the form of an over $100,000 per year fundraising job. That job was created expressly for Haley, the hospital says and she was paid 63 percent more than fundraisers at similarly sized charities, according to records obtained by The State and an industry group that studies nonprofit salaries.
