Haley releases e-mails months after being asked

Columbia, SC -

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's Republican gubernatorial nominee is looking to bolster her key issue of government transparency by releasing her legislative e-mails.

State Rep. Nikki Haley's campaign allowed media to see thousands of pages' of legislative correspondence Friday afternoon - three months after they were requested.

The campaign required reporters view the documents at her office and make no copies.

Haley has made government accountability and transparency a main issue. Democratic opponent Vincent Sheheen has criticized her for her reluctance to release her documents.

Media outlets including The Associated Press requested a review of Haley's e-mails after a political blogger claimed they had an affair.

Haley has denied his allegation.
