Columbia, SC (WLTX)- Controversial volunteer, Roan Garcia-Quintana, on the Haley for Governor Grassroots Advisory Committee has resigned.

Gov. Haley's political advisor Tim Pearson sent News19 this statement:   

The Haley for Governor Grassroots Advisory Committee today asked volunteer Roan Garcia-Quintana to resign from our 164-member volunteer committee.

While we appreciate the support Roan has provided, we were previously unaware of some of the statements he had made, statements which do not well represent the views of the Governor.  

There is no place for racially divisive rhetoric in the politics or governance of South Carolina, and Governor Haley has no tolerance for it.
