Haley's resignation comes amid allegations that she took "seven private flights...that were paid for by South Carolina business executives," according to the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

According to The Hill:

The seven free flights were between New York, Washington, D.C., and three cities in the former governor's home state of South Carolina.

Federal ethics regulations ban employees from soliciting or accepting gifts because of their official positions, and Haley asserted on her financial disclosure report that she was personal friends with the three South Carolina businessmen involved.
