Who wasnt subpoenaed?
There are several notable omissions.
Haley. Calling a sitting governor to testify was going to be tricky constitutionally, due to the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches. But some expected Haley to be on the witness list since the case involved her actions in the House.
Larry Marchant, who was a BlueCross lobbyist when Haley was in the House and could testify about Haleys solicitation of donations to the Lexington Medical Foundation from that insurer. Marchants attorney, David Haller, said last week that he expected a subpoena after speaking with one of the attorneys representing the House, Ben Mustian. Marchant also has claimed to have had a one-night fling with Haley, which she has denied.
The committee asked Lexington Medicals foundation for information on contributions made by 13 companies and individuals, but formally requested documentation or testimony from only four donors BlueCross, Time Warner, Jones and Denny.
What about the other nine? Four companies Michelin, AT&T, Comporium and S.C. Credit Union League said last week they have not heard from the committee.
The Ethics Committee might have limited the subpoena list to keep the hearing to two days, Thursday and Friday. Its intentions like the reasons for not having Haley testify are unknown since the committee members slapped a gag order on themselves immediately after they issued the subpoenas.
