Now this is strange: “A political blogger is claiming he had an ‘inappropriate physical relationship’ with Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley,” of South Carolina. How can this possibly be true? South Carolina Republican political bloggers are wayyyyy too busy jerking off to bulldogs and muppets on the Chatroulette to ever hunt down fancy human ladies, even if they do have cool Tolkien collections to show off. Pics or didn’t happen.
Haley has “categorically” denied the accusation by Will Folks, a former spokesman for Gov. Mark Sanford who now blogs and has done paid public relations work for politicians – including Haley.
“Several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki,” Folks wrote on his site, FITSnews.com. “It is what it is, and aside from the Haley family – Michael, Nikki, Rena and Nalin – I feel no need to apologize or explain myself to anyone. People are human. We make mistakes.”
In a statement, Haley denied an improper relationship.
“I have been 100 percent faithful to my husband throughout our 13 years of marriage,” Haley said in a statement sent via her campaign this morning. “This claim against me is categorically and totally false.”
Who should we trust?
Folks is a controversial figure in South Carolina politics. He pleaded guilty to criminal domestic violence in 2005, and then built FITSnews.com into a an influential blog among South Carolina’s political community. The site often relies on anonymous sources, and Folks shrugs off accusations that he is paid to publish certain stories.
