South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is biting the bullet on bullying, the Huffington Post reports. Haley battled the childhood problem, and with that in mind became a key participant in October’s National Bullying Prevention Month, visiting schools across South Carolina to bring awareness to the issue. On Monday evening, Haley’s message added some adult flavor. While addressing a group of seventh graders at the Daniel Island School, the Charleston Post and Courier reports, the governor brought bullying to a government level.
“We’ve got a couple senators in the Statehouse who are known as big bullies,” she told the students. “It doesn’t ever stop. The thing is, those people aren’t respected.”
