Editorial Cartoonist Depicts Haley In Muslim Garb 7-21-2010

By FOX Carolina Staff
COLUMBIA, S.C.An editorial cartoonist has published a cartoon depicting South Carolina Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley wearing a burqa, clothing typically worn by Muslim women.
Robert Ariail posted the cartoon on his website Tuesday.
The first frame reads, “Nikki Haley: What She Promises.” The picture shows Haley dressed as a beauty queen with the words, “Miss Transparency” on her sash.
The second frame reads, “What We Get.” The illustration shows Haley dressed in a burqa.
On his website, Ariail writes that he is contrasting Haley’s campaign message of open-door government with her recent closed-door meetings and refusal to release e-mails. The cartoon is not an ethnic or racial slur, Ariail said.
Haley’s campaign has declined to comment.
