    I work in research so it's unethical to guarantee that findings will go one way or another. But we have to submit a research plan. We are subject to both financial and program audits to prove that our results were obtained by actually executing that plan.

    The most direct parallel is that grant funds are usually allocated for very specific purposes. Different programs address different fields, methodologies, etc.

    You write up a plan to address problem X and accept a grant to address problem X. We'd be in a shit-ton of trouble if we issued a report saying, in essense, nevermind ... we don't want to address problem X. But thanks for the money!

    Why should the rules be any different for Nikki Haley?
