An alternative explanation for Ethics Commission gag?

Most of the speculation about why Gov. Nikki Haley’s new pick as Ethics Commission chairman decided to gag the agency’s outspoken attorney has a directive coming either directly or indirectly from the governor. You may recall that when the governor took a trip to North Carolina last year for what she called an official event, Cathy Hazelwood begged to differ, called it a political event and said the governor needed to repay the state for the cost. The disagreement didn’t end there, but you get the picture.
