UNBELIEVEABLE: Nikki Haley Accused of Having ANOTHER Affair

June 2, 2010
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Just when it looked like this story had run out of twists and turns, another accusation of an affair arises!

Once again, the Haley campaign is quick to respond;

“This is a false and outrageous desperate attack from a losing candidate’s campaign consultant in the final week of the race.”

From AP via The Other McCain:

A lobbyist who resigned from a rival political campaign is claiming to have had a tryst with a South Carolina lawmaker trying to become the state’s first female governor. . . .
Marchant says their one-night stand happened in 2008 during a trip to Utah.

Interestingly, like Will Folks, Larry Marchant has a criminal record.

And yes, this is the same Larry Marchant that was fired earlier today;

[South Carolinian] Republican gubernatorial hopeful Andre Bauer said today he has asked for and received the resignation of a political consultant for “inappropriate conduct” but would say little more.

Lt. Gov. Bauer announced that adviser Larry Marchant gave him his resignation at noon today.

What makes this whole ‘confession” stink to high hell is that Marchant has been working for Haley’s closest competition in the South Carolina Governor’s race.

Honestly, I do not know what is coming next with this story, but stay tuned, South Carolina is rather exciting this time of the year.

Keep checking in here for updates.  I also suggest continually checking in with:

The OTHER McCain

Palmetto State Politics


UPDATE: 6/2 9:45 pm – I thought I would add these observations from Melissa Clouthier over at Liberty Pundits.  First, on South Carolina politics;

Stories like these make me hate politics more than I normally do. And most days, I really hate politics. It is a nasty, necessary business. In South Carolina’s case, their political culture stinks to high heaven. Another political aid comes forward with no proof making an allegation against Nikki Haley. I wonder if he’s carrying her baby?

And how they treat women in SC politics;

Where are the feminists? Oh right, she’s a Republican.

UPDATE II: 6/2 10:00 – Allahpundit over at Hot Air is beginning to show the frustration that many covering the South Carolina sleazefest are feeling;

At this point I half-hope that all these charges against her are true, just because that’d actually be less depressing than the thought of this many lying scumbags running around South Carolina smearing innocent people.

UPDATE III: 6/2 10:50 – Nikki Haley gets tough and goes after Andre Bauer at a candidates forum in West Ashley, South Carolina tonight.  Here is the WCSC News 5 Live video.

UPDATE IV: 6/3 12:15 am – Ace over at Ace of Spades HQ offers his assessment, dripping with Holy sarcasm;

Funny how these guys could live with this dark secret for years and years but only now as the primary approaches do INTEGRITY, CONSCIENCE, and SACRED HONOR, not to mention the MOVE-AH-MENTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT INSIDE AH’ ME, HEE-AAH, suddenly make their irresistible commandments known.

UPDATE V: 6/3 9:40 am – Red State’s Erick Erickson on the accusations by Folks;

At the end of the week? Nothing. Not even the alleged picture which may or may not be a picture of Nikki Haley’s car parked in front of his house wherein he had his office in which he worked as Nikki Haley’s speechwriter.

On Larry Marchant;

Enter, stage sewer, Larry Marchant. He tries to get a newspaper to run a story that he too slept with Nikki Haley. The media does not take the bite. Andre Bauer fires him.

And on Andre Bauer;

Thus we see Andre Bauer’s entire campaign strategy — ignore the issues, ignore the experience, and go straight to calling Nikki Haley a whore. I really and truly hope South Carolina voters will not reward the man for something so disgusting.

More on Andre Bauer from Stacy McCain;

Gail Collins of the New York Times makes a point when she say Lt. Gov. Bauer “is pretty much a walking explanation for why Governor Sanford was never tossed out of office.”

And you know that Will Folks has got to be eating this up.  Finally he gets to sit back and watch someone else take the heat for unfounded claims while at the same time ripping into Haley and boosting the hitcount over at FITSnews.

UPDATE VI: 6/3 11:30 am – More from The Other McCain.  It seems as if Nikki Haley’s husband Michale still supports her;

A supportive Tweet from Nikki's husband Michael

Election day is Tuesday June 8th, expect things to get even nastier over the next few days.

    watch the longer version of this interview. he gets grilled by some hack reporter, and stands his ground. he asks, rightly, why aren’t reporters asking nikki or her campaign these questions:

    was she with larry marchant at a conference in slc on june 14th, 2008?
    did she stay at the marriott in slc on the same date?
    did she go out to dinner with larry on the same night?
    did she go to two separate bars for drinks / dancing after dinner?
    did she return to the hotel on the same night?

    the burden of proof is not with larry and will. they are NOT running for public office. if she is clean, she should provide phone records. if she is clean she should provide details to above questions.

    she is stonewalling. transparency, my ass. she’s a fraud.

      The reason they are not asking those questions is because they are completely irrelevant.

      Did someone see Nikki enter a room with a man other than her husband?
      Does someone have pictures of the 2 of them together in private?
      Did she admit to anyone that she had an affair?

      I can go on and on, all that has been given from Folks and Marchant are innuendos and accusations.

      I do not know what goes on in South Carolina, but in America, we require EVIDENCE before convicting or even accusing anyone of anything.

      Get me some facts!

    Of course the questions are relevant, you Haley-apologist, teabagger, cracker moron. Asking them is how you get the “facts” that you apparently so desperately want “gotten” (in all honesty, I don’t really think that you care a hoot about what the facts actually are).

    Bill Clinton lied pretty well and effectively about Monica Lewinsky for a while. Then the “facts” came out. Good luck trying maintain your ego and your dignity as you wipe the egg from your face once Haley “comes” clean, and admits that she was just another in a long line of dissembling politicians that cheated on their spouses, got caught and then tried to lie their way out of it.

      Show me a fact and I will agree with you. In America, even under Obama, people are innocent until proven guilty.
