Hit men: Another SC pol claims affair with Nikki Haley

posted at 8:40 pm on June 2, 2010 by Allahpundit

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.

The allegation made Wednesday by lobbyist Larry Marchant is the second leveled at Republican state Rep. Nikki Haley in the past two weeks. Her campaign vehemently denies both allegations.

Neither claim has come with proof.

Marchant says their one-night stand happened in 2008 during a trip to Utah. He was married then and still is.

Funny coincidence one: The author of that AP story is Jim Davenport, the same reporter who showed up in Will Folks’s archive of text messages sniffing around for dirt on Haley. Funny coincidence two: Marchant resigned earlier today from his position as a consultant to … Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, who also happens to be the guy Erick Erickson suspects of coordinating with Folks to take down Haley before the gubernatorial primary. And now a question: Assuming that Bauer knew what Marchant was planning to say, and in light of the fact that Bauer declined to press Haley about the affair allegations at last night’s debate, why didn’t he refuse Marchant’s resignation and tell him to keep his fat mouth shut instead? Does anyone not think Bauer’s fingerprints are all over this?

Here’s Haley’s new ad, aimed squarely at Folks’s charges against her. Contain your surprise upon learning that he’s now looking to cash in with a book deal.

Update: More from Davenport. Haley’s denying the new accusation, of course, and with good reason. Here’s Marchant’s ridiculous explanation for why he had to come clean:

“I did not have any intention of going public,” Marchant said Wednesday. “I kept getting calls from different people. I just felt like I owed Andre to disclose it to him. I did not do it until two days after I disclosed it to my wife.”…

Marchant said Bauer asked for his resignation after a newspaper reporter began asking questions about the alleged tryst this week. Bauer declined to comment about it, but his campaign did take the unusual step of announcing the resignation for “inappropriate conduct not in keeping with the goals of this campaign.”

So instead of keeping quiet about an alleged affair of which, by his own admission, there’s zero proof, he felt duty bound to disclose it right before the primary. And Andre Bauer felt duty bound to mention in his press release that Marchant was let go for “inappropriate conduct,” which isn’t at all a signal that we should believe something really did happen between him and Haley. We’re hip-deep in filth here.

While it may be true that other blogs have dealt with this news, this is the first that I have read about the second accusation. Plus, Allah seems to be very skeptical of all reports, old and new. He also works the evening shift, I am sure he gives us as much new information as is available. I can understand that you prefer Ed’s writing but I think the power to control that is in your court.

The water in SC must be awash in Viagra. First Edwards, then Sanford and now these two wannabes.

In HS they were probably the pathetic losers who claimed to nail the homecoming queen when they were never closer to her than they could get with a hall pass.

Why don’t you have the decency to wait for these slimebuckets to come out with any type of substantiation before you start repeating these crappy innuendos as though they are newsworthy?????

Settle down scooter. The short-term “benefit” Will Folks received, FItsnews received, etc are short lived and ultimatley are thier career killers.

The best way to overcome a slimballs accusations – is publically out the slimeball and let the market bear its fruits.

For instance – 90% of Fits are anti-Folks, and his latest poll (until the trolls get there) 80% would not buy his book.

Due to Allah, RedState , Other McCain and Ace – these scumbags are being outed.

They want silence.

I do think it’s fishy, although I also thought it was odd that Haley wouldn’t admit the affair right away if Folks’s allegations were true, knowing that there was a paper trail. That cuts against believing his claims.

Suing scumbags like these political tools is worse than a waste of time. By suing them you accomplish the following: 1) You extend their time in the limelight, which only encourages them. 2) You focus more attention on the sleazy allegations, which also serves the purposes of the scumbags and their political daddies. 3) You open yourself up to the discovery process, including requests for production of documents, answers to written interrogatories under oath, and the taking of depositions. Those depositions extend to anyone who might have knowledge of relevant facts. Even if you have absolutely nothing to hide, the entire process is an invitation to the scumbags to rummage around in your life looking for something to exploit.

Even if you win a judgment, how likely are you to collect? More likely you will have paid fees and costs out of pocket and will never recover a dime.

These guys are enemies who must be fought, but the courtroom is the wrong battleground.

And there hardly needs to be any proof. Conservatives are notorious for abandoning their candidates at the first sign they might not be morally pure.

A woman who doesn’t subscribe to the NOW platform and a woman of Indian ancestry to boot….that strikes at the heart of the Democratic party. She’s wandered off the liberal plantation and must be stopped by any means necessary.

Why would you even say something like that?!

Haley is happily married and the mother of 2 elementary school children and isn’t running for your sex partner.
Grow up and shut up about your base desires!

Jenfidel on June 3, 2010 at 9:32 AM

Bauer looked like a 10 year-old kid at the moment he first realizes Mom and Dad aren’t buying his story.
`
The whole sleazeball operation of Shealy, Marchant, Bauer, Donehue, and the rest is all over this stuff. Will Folks is a cheesy opportunist whose bar boast of bedding women he only wished he had came back to haunt him, but he made it count in website hits.
`
Haley is the only reform candidate in the race, which is why the corrupt power structure needs her destroyed. They’ve had to fight Sanford for eight years now, and while most of his vetoes were overridden, it brought unwanted attention to the pork spending.
`
The best thing about all this is the support it’s building for Haley – she has a shot at winning the nomination outright, without a run-off, in a field of four where her three opponents are well-established GOP figures in SC. Hmmm, reminds me of the 2002 primary . . .
`
And better still, reformer Haley will take office not only owing nothing to the establishment, but even carrying a fully justified grudge against them. That’s exactly what this state needs – a royally-ticked conservative woman Governor to bring the Good Old Boy network down to earth.

Adjoran on June 3, 2010 at 9:32 AM

I don’t want to give the impression that the SC legislature is all corrupt. In reality, not more than 90% of its members could be fairly described as corrupt. It’s not a political thing, both parties cooperate beautifully in dividing the spoils.

OK, if you can come out of Puritan land, lemmie make the point of my joke more clear. Halley is gorgeous, I would imagine that she is a friendly person, often with beautiful people the people around them misinterpret friendliness because there perception is clouded by those “baser instincts”. This makes her an easy target for this sort of attack and makes it easy for people who know her to believe it. I have seen it a million times with competent, good looking, female sailors.

The truth never surfaces just days before a primary, but scum always stays on top of the pond.

Yes and yes.
Treating those who seek public office and who exhibit conservative leadership like beefcake is wrong, no matter what sex is doing the appraisal of their physical looks.

I have no idea why you think you’re excused or justified in your sexist thinking.

Again I say, grow up!
If you can’t keep your base thoughts to yourself, don’t share them.
We’re trying to get a person, who happens to be a lovely LADY, elected to be SC’s next Governor.

Nikki needs to take a lie detector test and then invite the semi-illiterate slobs to do the same. It is incomprehensible that these attacks are solely based on “politics”. If they are lies and this is common in South Carolina politics, then the voters in the state are not worthy to be considered lifeforms. It would explain Lindsey Grahamnesty being a senator from the state though.

Nikki doesn’t need to take a lie-detector test. You don’t lower yourself to the level of the filth, you dismiss it to the gutter with swift contempt and never look back.

Wish I was in SC so I could vote for her.
