Washington (eTruePolitics) – “This is very disappointing news,” said Lindsey Graham after learning that fellow South Carolina Republican Nikki Haley was of Punjabi heritage. “I had no idea,” claimed Graham about rumors in Republican Party circles that Haley’s maiden name, Nimrata Randhawa, indicated she was of Indian descent.
“There goes the DAR endorsement,” a South Carolina Republican told eTruePolitics. Haley is reportedly eyeing a run for the Senate from the deep red state.
“I am very proud of my lamb korma and the Confederate flag,” said Haley in a written statement apparently meant to address charges that she was ashamed of her ancestry or South Carolina’s history of racism.
