IS ANOTHER AFFAIR ALLEGATION ABOUT TO SURFACE?
A former employee of the S.C. House of Representatives resigned their post after allegedly catching then-State Rep. Nikki Haley in flagrante delicto with one of her former colleagues … twice. In fact the former staffer may have recently confirmed these encounters in an affidavit tied to an unrelated case.
According to a source familiar with the staffer’s story, Haley and her as-yet-unnamed legislative colleague were observed in a compromising position in Haley’s old office on the third floor of the Solomon Blatt Building, which is located on the grounds of the S.C. State House.
Haley was a member of the S.C. House of Representatives from 2005-2011.
In the first instance, the staffer alleges that neither Haley nor her colleague were aware that their liaison had been observed. In the second instance, both Haley and her colleague were said to have been “interrupted” in the midst of a sexual act.
The staffer resigned the following day.
Before we go down this road (again), it’s important to acknowledge that no one – not even our founding editor – has ever provided any conclusive proof that Haley has ever engaged in any extramarital sexual activities. Nor is any “proof” expected to emerge in this case … it would (once again) be somebody’s word against Haley’s.
And the governor is teflon, people.
Still … the rumor has the S.C. State House buzzing, and all of the legislative sources we’ve spoken with who worked with Haley at the time say that she and the lawmaker in question enjoyed an unusually close relationship.
“I didn’t see (any) fire,” one lawmaker tells FITS. “But there was always plenty of smoke.”
Other lawmakers indicated that they knew it would only be a matter of time before an allegation involving Haley and the lawmaker in question was leveled.
Obviously we’re doing our best to track down additional specifics related to this story but unless the employee in question snapped a cell phone picture of either of these encounters then our guess is that this story is about to go absolutely nowhere … fast. Unless of course the governor’s public relations team believes that her victim complex is in need of yet another feeding.
In that case it’s likely to turn into another example of the governor slamming those unaccountable bloggers spewing this, that or the other … particularly this blogger.
So why did we write it? Knowing full well that it would only spawn another round of people calling “bullshit!” That’s easy: Based on the people we’ve interviewed (and our founding editor’s personal history with Haley during this time period) we believe the allegation to be the truth.
