The Department of Justice may indict South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley on charges of tax fraud, according to the Palmetto Public Record, a South Carolina political blog.

PPR reported that a “highly ranked” federal government official “privately confirmed rumblings of an investigation” and the “possible indictment of the governor.” The report said the official, however, could not provide a specific time frame.

Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey told The Daily Caller on Thursday that ”[i]t’s sad in this day and age when anyone can post un-sourced nonsense on blogs and the mainstream media runs with it.”

“No truth to this whatsoever — it’s as real as the tooth fairy.”

But PPR reported that two “well-placed legal experts” said the DOJ indictment could come as early as next week.

The alleged tax fraud reportedly occurred during Haley’s time managing finances for the Sikh worship center in South Carolina run by her father, Dr. Ajit Singh Randhawa.

In addition to reports of impending federal criminal charges, a group of South Carolina Democratic lawmakers is calling on Haley to waive her right to confidentiality concerning any ethics complaints that may be pending against her.
