Governor Elect Haley tells Oprah No Susan Smith interview

South Carolina’s governor-elect says she won’t allow talk show queen Oprah Winfrey access to Susan Smith, serving life in prison for killing her two sons.

Nikki Haley’s decision Thursday not to grant Winfrey access to Smith continues the state Department of Corrections’ policy of prohibiting inmates from conducting interviews, The (Charleston) Post and Courier reported Friday.

“While Gov.-elect Haley has great respect for Oprah, let’s be clear: Ms. Smith got enough press when she killed her two children and lied about it to the country,” Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said. “South Carolina suffered enough from this tragedy, and we are now focused on the positives in our great state.”
