A South Carolina Democratic Party official has been reprimanded for calling Gov. Nikki Haley a "Sikh Jesus" on the social networking site Twitter.
Phil Bailey, the political director for South Carolina Senate Democrats, was apparently reprimanded for the tweet at a luncheon today, according to the Associated Press.
Bailey's Twitter account has since been closed, and he has apparently admitted the comment was inappropriate.
Haley, raised in a Sikh, Indian-American household, is now a Methodist.
