We can all breathe a sigh of relief.

The mystery man who filled out Gov. Nikki Haley’s job application with the Lexington Medical Center — you know, the one where Haley listed her income as $125,000 instead of $22,000 as she claimed to the IRS — has been apprehended, according to a FITSNews report.

And evidently, the application apparition is none other than … wait for it …. Nikki Haley. (And she would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling kids.)

Here’s what Will Folks says:

Now, according to the hospital’s latest FOIA response, we find out that the two-page section of the application (which Haley admits filling out and signing) and the five-page section (which she denies filling out) were actually part of the same online application.

“Based upon a review of LMC’s information systems, it appears that the application was completed electronically on August 5, 2008 beginning at 5:39 p.m.,” hospital attorney David B. Summer wrote to Rainey. “The ’2-page section’ and ’5-page section’ to which you refer are both part of a single electronic application.”


According to the hospital, Haley personally signed the two page section at a later date — and that this signature covered the entire seven pages of information that she submitted.
