South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley wasfined $3,500 by the State Ethics Commission and given a "public warning" for failing to report the addresses of eight donors during her 2010 campaign for governor, The State newspaper reported.

State law bans political candidates from depositing a contribution unless it contains the name and address of the contributor — a regulation meant to stop potentially illegal contributions.

"The 2010 campaign made its best effort to report all the required information from the more than 7,000 donors who contributed," Haley’s campaign manager Tim Pearson told the newspaper.

"But the requirement is to report 100 percent and, as such, the Ethics Commission has elected to issue the campaign a public warning," he said.

The ethics investigation arose out a complaint filed two years ago by Bridgett Tripp, a former Democratic Party staffer now employed by state Sens. Vincent Sheheen and Creighton Coleman.

Tripp accused Haley, a Republican, of misreporting $1.3 million in contributions.

Haley has promised the commission she would not deposit future contributions unless she has all of the information required by law, according to The State.
