FITSNews Co-Owner Issues Statement
By FITSNews || In response to the barrage of media requests that have understandably followed our founding editor’s acknowledgment of an “inappropriate physical relationship” with S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley, FITS co-owner Nancy Mace has issued a statement on behalf of this website.
Here it is …
STATEMENT FROM NANCY MACE, CO-OWNER OF FITSNEWS.COM REGARDING THE WILL FOLKS/ NIKKI HALEY STORY
Circumstances beyond his control compelled our founding editor, Will Folks, to address a personal matter Monday morning on FITSNews.com. He has nothing to add to his comments regarding this matter and will not be conducting any further interviews on the subject.
As the state of South Carolina’s premier political news and opinion website, FITSNews.com will continue to do its job of speaking the truth on behalf of the citizens and taxpayers of the Palmetto state.
A brief point of clarification is obviously in order here. In his post addressing this issue earlier today, our founding editor stated that he would not be “granting any additional interviews to members of the media beyond what (he had) already been compelled to confirm.”
This is a reference to an interview that Sic conducted prior to the publication of his story with Jim Davenport of the Associated Press, one of several reporters who had contacted him about the rumors in the weeks leading up to this story breaking.
We obviously have no control over the release of that information.
