SC-1: Teddy Turner’s “Traditional Marriages”

Teddy Turner – son of liberal media mogul Teddy Turner – is running as a “conservative” in the 2013 special election for South Carolina’s first congressional district.

We get that … so are the other fifteen GOP candidates seeking this post (most of whom are far from “conservative”).

Anyway, in his television ads Turner also brands himself as “a husband” and “a father,” while staking out his support for “traditional marriage.”

Again … that’s not surprising in a GOP primary, but it does strike us as a bit ballsy given the fact Turner is currently on his third marriage.

“Traditional marriage?” a source recently wrote to FITS. “Is that why (Turner) knocked up his nanny and had to marry her? The wife and kid in the commercial is his NEW wife … she was the nanny and he got her pregnant. His wife of the other two kids divorced him and he married the nanny.”

“Very ‘traditional,'” the source added.

Turner’s first marriage – to his high school sweetheart – lasted seven years. His second marriage – to Charleston, S.C. attorney Leslie Turner – lasted ten years, although we’re told the couple separated after seven years. Turner has two children from his second marriage.

Here’s Turner’s third wife, Blair, and their son …

In a statement provided to FITS, Turner flatly rejected the allegation he “knocked up the nanny.”

“I left Leslie,” he said. “I was never caught cheating on Leslie as has been rumored by another candidate in the race. Further, my wife Blair was never our nanny. She worked for another family.”

Ah, rich people problems …

Anyway according to Turner’s campaign manager, Michael Smith, the “other candidate” was confronted about spreading “personal rumors” about Turner two weeks ago. Smith claims the heated confrontation ended with the other candidate admitting his fault and promising to apologize to Turner.

“That apology has not been issued,” Smith told FITS this week.

Smith refused to identify the “other candidate,” but multiple sources have confirmed to us that Smith engaged in a “shouting match” with former S.C. Sen. John Kuhn at a campaign event approximately two weeks ago.

“It was very animated,” our source recalls. “They were yelling at each other.”

And while Smith declined to identify Kuhn, he offered up some harsh words related to the spat.

“When it comes to that candidate’s behaviors … truth is certainly crazier than fiction,” Smith said. “If ever there was a poster child for the long-term effects of a lead paint diet, this guy is it.”

Ouch!

Smith also made clear the Turner campaign is considering the possibility of legal action against the “other candidate.”

Sources close to Kuhn denied leaking a story about Turner’s alleged infidelities.

“They accosted John a couple of weeks ago,” a source close to Kuhn tells FITS. “One of Turner’s campaign staffers yelled at him – cursed at him, actually – but he never told John exactly what it was he allegedly said. Michael is very confrontational. He has accosted several of our staffers about this. Obviously we have heard the rumors but our campaign is not spreading them. John’s kids and Teddy’s kids know each other and like each other. John’s wife even picks them up from school. This is bizarre.”

So … what really happened here?

Source familiar with Turner’s divorce from his second wife tell FITS the court records associated with the case have been sealed. We were recently promised access to the file by one of our sources, however they have yet to turn over those documents to us. If they do turn those documents over, we will publish them (we’re not particularly scared of the judges in this state).

Infidelity is a major issue in the first congressional district race given that former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford – the most infamous adulterer in Palmetto political history – is one of the candidates. Personally, we don’t care whether candidates remain faithful to their spouses. Or whether they support “traditional marriage” or not. We care whether they will consistently protect taxpayers the way U.S. Reps. Jeff Duncan and Mick Mulvaney have done in Washington, D.C.

That’s what Duncan and Mulvaney based their endorsements on … and it’s what we’ll be basing our endorsement on as well.

I hoped that Turner might be the one sane candidate in the running for that seat. Sad to see him buying into the dogma of the faux “moralists”. Do they really have to go there? Why can’t they run on issues that rightfully concern government instead of this “moral” agenda?

What is traditional marriage? King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines and God didn’t seem to care enough to smite him for it.

I guess strict marriage parameters are for the serfs.

Yes, and when you are a serf and righteous God shows us how he rewards you with the story of Job. He elevated King David, but destroyed Job…but then gave it all “back” to Job(except for some psychological damage)…except for those first 10 kids of Job God killed, but hey, screw them-God had a point to make.

“I was never caught cheating on Leslie”

What a resounding denial…lol

“Personally, we don’t care whether candidates remain faithful to their spouses.”

If they fuck around on their wife, what do you think they will do to the “taxpayer”, to which they haven’t even made written promises that are binding in any sort of contract?

You really should re-think that.

If someone wants to screw up their life by cheating and they aren’t on the public dole via being a “public servant”…fine…it’s no one’s business but theirs.

However, all that changes when they decide to take one of the rings of power and have the ability to rule in various ways over all of us.

So the guy that teaches at a little bible school has a nanny? Oh, right, he’s just another trust-fund baby with nothing better to do than run for office.

And clearly chicks dig money. That guy’s a chubby little flop head.

EVERYBODY screws everybody sometime, wives and husbands and nannies and poolboys and neighbors alike! Especially in the hot and sticky lowcountry. ridiculous hypocrisy in the electoral process. funny though that Teddy says he was never “CAUGHT cheating on Leslie”. hahah. And does anybody REALLY care or put any weight into what John Kuhn says? honestly, this guy was about as worthless a State Rep as there comes and he thinks he has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning a US House seat? This whole race is a laughing stock. Only Sanford and Limehouse (jeez) have any viable political experience or weight to throw around. I think Sanford has the best shot in the long run. Say what you will about the personal choices he made late in his Governorship, but no one can argue his political resume is quite good and he is a fiscal conservative if nothing else.

Teddy does believe in traditional marriage as opposed to cohabitation, times three; just like his daddy. Sanford as you say may be the most viable candidate in the long run but I don’t think those personal choices only occurred late in his governorship; some were just exposed then. I don’t believe he is really a bona fide SC-1 representative. It feels more like a reentry to get back on track for consideration for a higher political or international office. I don’t believe he has ever set aside his ego-driven aspirations. If he attains this office he knows it will just be easier to get the next. His buddies at C-Street will help propel him into an international set where lapsed ethics, a string of mistresses and ex-wives, and a sense of entitlement are de rigueur. Having a wealthy, cosmopolitan Argentine multi-lingual journalist /commodities broker(???) on his arm to smooth his rough spots shouldn’t hurt either.

Didn’t 75 members of the GOP sign on to a legal brief to the Supreme Court two days ago in support of gay marriage? So why are these local yokels going the other way. What a fucked up party.

Do Republicans read the newspaper? Do they watch national news on NBC, CBS or ABC? like normal people do?

Morality or at least alleged morality is important to Repubicans right now, because it is all they have left. The public has rejected most of their agenda. Which in a nut shell is:

Gut Medicare; gut Medicaid; cut Social Security; cut taxes on the wealthy; increase taxes on the poor, make all abortion Illegal; deport the hispanics; make it difficult for minorities to vote; kill the unions; put women back in the home where they belong; put gays back in the closet; make sure every white maile who wants one can have an assault rifle with a 500 round clip; and speak for god.

Pierre Manigault’s wife caught him fucking the nanny, too, and kicked him out of the house. The yelling & screaming — we could hear it down the block. Pierre’s father, Peter, and Teddy’s father, Ted, were friends, BTW. (Peter died a few years ago.) Sometimes we didn’t know if it was the nanny having orgasms or the wife screaming at Pierre about fucking the nanny. Anyhow, screaming stopped when Pierre moved out (nanny went with him).
