Outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley had up to $1 million in debt in 2017, raising the possibility she could be leaving to boost her salary by joining the private sector.

According to federal ethics reports, Haley’s debt last year was somewhere between $525,000 to approximately $1.1 million last year, South Carolina’s Post and Courier reports. Specifically, Haley owed between $25,000 to $65,000 since 2016 on a couple credit cards and had a mortgage and a line of credit each for $250,000 to $500,000.

The article goes on to state the following:

Haley noted she accrued approximately $10,000 in January 2017 as South Carolina governor before she was confirmed as ambassador to the U.N. and reported having between $1,000 to $15,000 in her bank account. Additionally, she reported income from her memoir Can’t is Not an Option was “not readily ascertainable,” and therefore did not list that she made any income from the book.

    I also pray she can get out of debt. And I doubt the the money she spent can outweigh what she has done for our country. And may I point out all the politicians, (Obama’s “dates” and vacations, and the Clintons all became billionaires off the backs of taxpayers)?

    Is 1m a lot of debt making 200k+ a year?

    line of credit each for $250,000 to $500,000….so who says that she is in debt for that whole line of credit. Geez…. We had a line of credit with our mortgage loan but never used a dime of it. A statement like this without checking to see what the facts are is just trying to smear her. Well, at least we know she did not become a millionaire while she held that position like all those in Congress.
