Sex Education?

S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford may be an amateur Romeo, but it looks like he’s got nothing on his appointment to the S.C. State Board of Education. Kristin Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolina’s most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governor’s closest education policy advisors…

S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford may be an amateur Romeo, but it looks like he’s got nothing on his appointment to the S.C. State Board of Education.

Kristin Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolina’s most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governor’s closest education policy advisors for years.  She’s also Sanford’s appointment to the S.C. Board of Education, which last year elected her its Chairwoman.

What else is she?

The prolific author of hardcore erotic fiction on the Internet, according to documents provided to the governor’s office earlier this summer and later obtained by FITS.

Maguire, a professed Christian who home-schools her four children, declined to comment for our story but did not deny that she had previously frequented websites that feature such X-rated material.  Maguire believes that a former friend is leaking the information to the media in an effort to ruin her political career.

As for the specific writings alleged to have flowed from Maguire’s pen, most have been deleted from the Internet.

FITS was able to use conversations in various Internet chat rooms, however, to link at least two “erotic stories” to Maguire’s alleged pen name, “Bridget Keeney.”  From there, numerous similarities between “Bridget” and Maguire emerged, including commonalities in age, geographic location, engineering background, hobbies (knitting, for example) and number of children.  One comment left in an erotic chat room by “Bridget” even reveals the name of a professor who was at Clemson University’s College of Engineering at the time when Maguire was a student there, while another comment references a specific medical procedure that Maguire underwent several years ago.

Confronted with these numerous identifying markers, Maguire spoke to FITS of difficult times in her life and acknowledged that she had visited certain websites where such material was posted and reviewed.  She did not admit to authoring erotic fiction, however.

A source familiar with Sanford’s response to receiving this information tells a different story, however.  This source says that Maguire emphatically denied that the writing samples were hers, and that she and the governor’s chief of staff, Scott English, immediately set about to ensure that none of the material remained on the Internet.

None of the writings attributed to Maguire are illegal, obviously, and none of them coincide with her tenure as Chairwoman of the State Board.  But they do coincide with her extensive interaction with the Governor’s Office during Sanford’s first term.

That part of Maguire’s life is now facing intense scrutiny – especially in light of the way Sanford’s office appears to have helped put a lid on the information being leaked about Maguire.

For example, several sources have related to FITS an incident involving Maguire and Scott English at a Columbia area bar at the end of the 2004 legislative session.

“She was giving him a lap dance,” says a witness at the bar. “There’s no other way to describe it.”

Another former Sanford staffer tells FITS that Maguire once unbuttoned her blouse and hiked up her skirt in front of him to show off her see-thru, light blue underwear.  This incident allegedly occurred not at a bar, but inside the governor’s office – at the unoccupied desk of First Lady Jenny Sanford, no less.

“Lies, lies, lies, lies,” a friend of Maguire’s told FITS. “These are all lies. That is not Kristin and shame on any person who says that it is.”

Maguire’s involvement in S.C. politics goes well beyond her leadership of the S.C. Board of Education or her involvement with the Sanford administration.  She is an executive committeewoman of the S.C. Republican Party, as well as the woman responsible for drafting the party’s education platform.

Prior to being elected Chairwoman, Maguire led the panel responsible for approving education standards taught in South Carolina classrooms, including what textbooks were to be used and how teachers were to be certified.  She has been a strong supporter of “abstinence only” sex education, as well.

When Maguire was elected to lead the S.C. Board, her appointment was hailed as a victory for social conservatives and feted on Christian blogs and websites across the Southeast.

Maguire’s alleged alter-ego would obviously be quite a contrast from her carefully-cultivated public persona.

“I fantasize about being the ‘second’ F (female) in a MFF (threesome) where the other two are in a committed relationship,” the sultry “Bridget” writes on one post. “I would like to focus on pleasuring her and ‘enhancing’ their intercourse …”

So, did Sanford’s office help Maguire engage in a cover-up of this highly-sensitive information? Or, as English told FITS, was the Governor’s Office simply reeling from the distraction caused by the governor’s own sex scandal?  Who knows, but shortly after Sanford’s office was informed of the alleged connection between Maguire and “Bridget,” her writings began disappearing from the web.


(Editor’s Note: These are samples of the erotic fiction written by “Bridget Keeney,” who is alleged to be S.C. Board of Education Chairwoman Kristin Maguire. Please note that these documents contain EXCEEDINGLY GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF SEXUAL ACTS and as such are NSFW – or NOT SAFE FOR WORK).

Was she writing Mark’s material to maria? Hahaha that would explain a lot

“I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificently gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curves of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of night’s light”

AdrianaTheTran August 31, 2009 at 1:20 pm

Dear Governor Sanford,

Please tell me this isn’t true, and you were the one penning those lovely letters to me. Please. Let me believe this.

By the way, she never mentioned pear jelly, Nutella or boiled peanuts in the letters. I find that interesting we spent so much time with those items.

Now you have me thinking, you kinky bastage.

With all my loins,

The real love story

HMMM August 31, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Is it true she resigned from the State Board of Education this morning?

rebel August 31, 2009 at 1:26 pm

What a fraud. When is the Republican Party going to wise up about the Ralph Reeds and the Christan Coalition types? Like Barry Goldwater said, “I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.” They have driven voters away from the party. We need fiscal conservatives who want to protect this country, not lectures from the moral majority on abstinence while they’ve got a glub-glub-glub in their mouths.

Barbie Dillon August 31, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Here’s a note she wrote to State Board of Education members this morning resigning her position. Interesting timing.

>>> “Kristin Maguire” 8/31/2009 9:11 AM >>>
Dear Board Members,

Many of you know that I have been carrying an ever increasing burden with
regards to my parents’ health. Finally, last week, as I mapped out with my
mom and her physician what our lives will look like for the next several
months, it became clear that there is no way that I can adequately meet my
family’s and parents’ needs while being a conscientious member, let alone
Chair, of the State Board of Education. The math simply doesn’t work.

I reluctantly reached the decision to resign from the State Board of
Education. I tendered my resignation to the Governor on Friday so he could
appoint someone who can fully participate in the important discussions and
policy decisions that are in the immediate future of the Board.

It has been an honor to serve with all of you. The combined experience and
passion around the Board table is amazing. There is a camaraderie and unity
of purpose that has allowed room for respectful disagreement and
constructive discussions in which the opinions and wisdom of all members are
both sought and heard. I am certain that the students of South Carolina are
better for the investment that all of us have made to this end.

While I regret not finishing my term as Chair I am proud of the work that
the Board has accomplished this year. I am confident that you all will
finish the year strong under Chairman Moore’s leadership with the continued
support of the State Department of Education.

I ask for your understanding as my family and I enter this next phase of our
journey. One day I hope to again partner with many of you to continue to
improve education for our state’s children.

Susie August 31, 2009 at 1:28 pm

I don’t care nearly as much about her online fantasy activities as I do about the fact that the Governor appointed someone who disdains public education and home schools her children to the Board of Education. WTF?

Pamela August 31, 2009 at 1:34 pm

OH my God, this SLUT is in charge of our children’ education ??
She HOMESCHOOL’s her own kids, yet tells the teacher’s of S.C. what is proper sex education for OUR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

Pamela August 31, 2009 at 1:39 pm

One day I hope to again partner with many of you to continue to
improve education for our state’s children.

I am absolutely shaking with rage, this crap must STOP NOW.

Wow! Illinois and South Carolina should be sister states for the consistency of improper actions by elected officials and their appointees.

shiya August 31, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Maybe Sanford appointed her AFTER reading her posts…

rebel August 31, 2009 at 2:05 pm

She needs to stay away from other people’s children. Sick freak. It may not be illegal to write porn on the internet, but it makes her a deviant and a pervert. Which again is fine if that’s what you want to do, but it makes you ineligible to crusade as an evangelical jihadist in politics, just like Obama palling around with his terrorist buddies should have disqualified him from being president.

Sanford couldn’t find one person to appoint instead of her? I’m puking.

HMMM August 31, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Yeah, I gotta think her children would have been better off in public schools.

Joke August 31, 2009 at 2:09 pm

I agree with Rebel. It’s the hypocrisy, Stupid.

Si Rosen August 31, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Hey Pamela, you probably didn’t learn this in the S.C. public school you attended, but apostrophes are used to make nouns possessive. You don’t need them for plural nouns or verbs.

Pamela August 31, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Thanks Si Rosen (snark)

Strom's Daughter August 31, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Maria Belen Chapur is being held in the Governor’s Mansion and cannot escape.

She managed to use Gov. Sanford’s cell phone, however, and made a call to an American friend in Columbia.

Here is what she said:

“Marco ees keeping me like a . . . como se llama . . . . hostage . . . in the Governor’s casa — like a keednap victeem. He says he weel keep me por many years because our souls are married, but the beeg problem ees that Marco no have a soul. He have a hole for the place of hees soul. It ees a hole like the holes he deeg on his farm for no reason.

“I want to escape from South Carolina and return to my native Argentina. Eet was a beeg mistake to arrive. My first impression of something wrong ees when I see the empty airport of your city. There ees no people here, no turistas, no nada. I think there are no people in thees place except por me and Marco. Please God help me leave thees hell-holes of Marco Sanford.”

Matt August 31, 2009 at 2:40 pm

So per Barbie Dillon (here in the comments section) Maguire has tendered her resignation letter. If true we now have a resignation on the heels of scandalous story on a reputable blog. Any bets on when the MSM picks up on this whole thing?

Republican Party, meet drain. The one you’re now circling with ever-increasing speed. Way to go, Luv Guv and Mrs. McGuire.

At least we have all this sleeze from Sanford and Friends to keep us occupied while we sit at home unemployed.

yarrrrr August 31, 2009 at 2:55 pm

“Here’s a note she wrote to State Board of Education members this morning resigning her position. Interesting timing. ”

The timing of this blog post is more interesting than the timing of her resignation… 3 hours afterward…

How long have you known about this Sic? Why did you wait till right after she resigns to publish it and not earlier? If it was because of a lack of evidence then doing it now is really, really shady…

TimeforChangein2010 August 31, 2009 at 3:02 pm

Members of the SC Republican Party Executive Committee who participated on the famous conference call to determine how to handle the Sanford problem several weeks reported that this same person — Kristin Maguire — was Sanford’s staunchest supporter. She lobbied other members hard, and was the major reason the committee censured Sanford instead of demanding his resignation.

Jonny D August 31, 2009 at 3:06 pm

In addition to the countless other abuses being heaped on the Luv Guv, now the haters will cite this as another example of his terrible wickedness and inhumanity. By not taking her along to South America with him, Luv Guv has cruelly and criminally deprived Ms. Fire Down Below of a fantastic opportunity to hook up with some latino hunks who would have turned her fantasies into reality.

Get a Life! August 31, 2009 at 3:10 pm

C’mon, people. Let’s get a life here. Near as I can figure, she is a consenting adult with an artistic streak.

And does anyone out there know how hard it is to get a good lap dance in Columbia?

The only obsenity here is the gargantuan amount of money being pissed away at the expense of our childrens’ future.

seriously, what is in the water in South Carolina? Not just this and Sanford, but it seems like there’s so much incestuousness going on in the Lege – members are sleeping with each other left and right, every other public figure has skeletons in their closets, etc. The whole state has become a joke… like some sexually repressed banana republic.

Crooner August 31, 2009 at 3:22 pm

Writing erotic fiction is hardly a sex scandal.

Got any pictures?

Not This Time August 31, 2009 at 3:24 pm

The real hypocrisy here is that her children do not attend the schools she is charged with regulating. Also it is really badly written porn.

Not Sayin', Just Sayin' August 31, 2009 at 3:29 pm

Get a life, I imagine that is as near as you can figure. Hopefully you won’t waste the Internet’s time with any more of your near figures.

Huhhh??? August 31, 2009 at 3:30 pm

What’s bad is all the people who never read about her appointment to the SC Board of (public) Education before this. It made the papers at the time, guys.

This is how people like Sanford, Davis, Ryberg, Harrell, and DeMint get elected; a total disengagement of the electorate, other than noticing the R after the name.

These are not even real people.

Start keeping up with the hypocrisy of the Republic Party, people. It’a all around you.

OnNoNotAgain August 31, 2009 at 3:35 pm

Quit posting the same crap here that you posted on The State…and I am sure other blogs. Get an original thought.

PandaChris August 31, 2009 at 3:42 pm

Reported 5 minutes ago on Blogactive…

Rumors confirmed
First to dispense with all of the right wingers who will post in the comments that I have not come up with physical proof of this case. Before commenting, I urge you to look at a few of the cases I have reported on in the past:

On October 17, 2006, I reported that Senator Larry Craig was a closet case who bashed gays while engaging in oral sex in public bathrooms. Comments on the site included:

that’s all you’ve got?
hello — what is the proof?
Put up or shut up – this is not the place to act like you have some inside knowledge without providing the facts.
It took over a year for one of my closest friends to tell me that when I first outed Craig he didn’t believe me. I explained, I have a 100% record and I don’t screw cases up.

Then, On August 27 of the next year, we all learned some more about Larry Craig and his bathroom habits.

On March 4, 2005 I reported about a certain Florida congressman who had a habit of hitting on men half his age. “…Mark Foley hit on men less than half his age…” I wrote. And once again comments came in. “Where is the proof???” people asked.

On March 22 of that year, I awarded him the Roy Cohn Award for his part in contributing to anti-gay oppression from within the closet.

Then, On September 28, 2006, Mark Foley was exposed for inappropriate emails with young pages and eventually instant messages came to light as additional proof of who Mark Foley really was.

So, that’s the preamble. In other words… I’m a reporter. I meet with people and I talk to them. Then based on a review of all of the facts, I report closet cases that hurt the gay community. You may not like my style, but I have a track record of 100%.

And for those reasons I am now able to confirm a rumor that has circulated in South Carolina for years. South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer is a closeted anti-gay politician who stands to replace Mark Sanford should Sanford resign or be impeached (a real possibility as Sanford is caught in his own sex scandal.)

So, what is the deal with Bauer? I have confirmed and spoken to four individuals who I have no doubt are telling me the truth. These men have been hit on by Bauer, with one of them telling me it happened at least five times since Bauer’s election in 2003. To a varying degree I have met with and believe the sources. And, as you’ll recall, I have that 100% record.

This was still not enough for me to report on him. Then another call came in and I met with the source while he was visiting DC recently. “He’s gay,” the source told me.

“How do you know?” I asked.

“Because I’ve had sex with him on two separate occasions.” That too, was not enough for me to report on without confirmation from others. I was led on a path to chatting with acquaintances of the source and two former employees of Bauer who served on his staff between 2004 and 2007. They reported to me that on on a total of three occasions Bauer spent hours alone with men hotel rooms. Each of them explained that the visits were with younger men who were not on the staff of the Lt. Governor nor had any official reason to be with him. The two men each confirmed that they had not known each other who saw this and each described similar circumstances under with these interactions occurred. One of them confirmed that he was told by the Lt. governor’s visitor had a sexual encounter with Bauer.

The combination of the reports and the first hand experiences were what I need to maintain my 100% record of being right in my reporting on this site.

This case is particularly interesting because the governor Bauer serves has a little sex issue himself. It was Mark Sanford (a former resident of the now famous C-Street House) who decided it was appropriate to use the state’s resources to fly to South America to rendezvous with his “soul mate.” As you can imagine, this did not go over too well with Sanford’s wife, who moved out of the governor’s mansion. (I give her credit, she was not one of the fools who stood by on TV as her husband confessed his sins (see: Craig, Suzanne and McGreevy, Dina).

His record? The bachelor is a right wing Christian conservative. He’s done everything from defend the state issuing “I believe” license plates (complete with a cross on them) to defending the right of schools to use corporal punishment. In the presidential election he supported Mike Huckabee.

There have been many rumors over the years about the Lt. Governor who was endorsed, incidentally, by Mark Sanford’s wife (she must have an attraction to men with sexual secrets) but now they are, for the first time, verified on the site that has a 100% track record of this reporting. All of the other reports were based on rumors and innuendo, this one is based on individuals I have personally spoken with and met.

Let there now be no doubt.

There is another difference between this report and others. This one will be on satellite radio coast to coast! (How to listen)

Over the next week or so, I’ll be providing a variety of take action activities to make sure the right people in SC know the truth (and not the rumors) about Bauer. After all, what good is an outing if the right people don’t know about it? Ask Mark Foley… Ask Larry Craig… Ask Ed Schrock. Ask them all.

Hypocracy or not? August 31, 2009 at 3:48 pm

Since I am at work (on a “State” computer no less) I can’t legitimately go to the links provided by FITS. Nevertheless, I again find myself to be a Democrat who is unwilling to join the piling on that a Republican like Mrs Maguire is experiencing – despite the fact that I find her conservative social viewpoints to be repugnant.

Is it really hypocritical to post erotic fiction online while pushing for abstinence-only education in public schools? In my view, it is not. It is my responsibility as a parent to ensure that my kids are not exposed to inappropriate content on the internet – not hers. I would prefer a world where internet postings by consenting adults (under pseudonyms no less) are not excoriated simply for being prurient.

Having said that, I have never seen any evidence that abstinence-only sexual education has a significant impact on teen behaviour and I still can’t believe that Governor Sanford appointed a home-schooler to chair the Board of Education!

SC EDUCATION August 31, 2009 at 3:48 pm

The reason that education in South Carolina is so pathetic is because of people like Sanford and this woman. Why on earth was she chairing some sort of public school related entity when her children do not attend such schools? Sanford’s blatant disregard for the public school system in South Carolina is pretty clear anyway but this is another clear reason why someone who actually cares about education should be governor.

Hypocracy or not? August 31, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Sometimes it helps to be able to spell hypocrisy instead of hypocracy!

Oh well.

Strom's Daughter August 31, 2009 at 4:00 pm

“if these people would just quit being hypocrites, none of this comes out . . . ”

Hey, weighing in idiot:

If they’d quit being hypocrites, none of this would EXIST, let alone come out.

I do not see why Hypocrisy and SC Education, are at all surprised. Sanford repeatedly made it clear that he does not believe in public education. He would like to see the institution dismantled and let everyone arrange for their own education, to the extent they can.

People like Pamela are exactly what is wrong with the South. Religious fundamentalism and its obsession with sexual repression must be destroyed.

Think about it…we let kids watch graphic war and horror movies, yet lose our minds if they see a boob. My only criticism of Kristin is that she resigned. She should have told them all to go eff themselves and offered everyone autographed copies of her work. Sadly, she let the crazies win.

bob August 31, 2009 at 4:34 pm

Si Rosen, actually, my public school taught me that to make letters, numbers, and words used as words plural, one does add an apostrophe. For example, a’s, 2’s, and’s (There are too many and’s in that sentence.)

Check your private school grammar book if you don’t believe me.

Gillon August 31, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Well, it could have been worse for Marky-Mark and the state. He could have appointed her to the State Ethics Commission.

Jim August 31, 2009 at 4:40 pm

A social conservative caught engaging in illicit sexual behavior. For liberals this automatically means:

1) All opposition to the murder of unborn children should cease immediately.

2) Everyone who believes that we shouldn’t be in the business of re-defining society’s central social institution should immediately dress in drag and go march in a gay pride parade.

3) Somehow people who advocate school choice are hypocrites (this one baffles me, but liberals don’t worry too much about things like logic and consistency).

4) Those who believe the government shouldn’t pay for contraception for 12 and 13 year olds should go buy a carton of Trojans for their local 6th graders.

The list goes on and on.

Is Kristin a hypocrite? I don’t know. I suppose we all are. But what the hell does that half to do with social conservatism?

A baby who is 12 weeks old can feel pain and remember its mother’s voice, but because Kristen Mcguire writes porn we should all support the freedom to murder that child. Liberals do non sequitars like noone else.

Huh? August 31, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Jim, she was outed on a conservative blog…how does the screed about liberals apply to this story line?

SteveDave August 31, 2009 at 5:26 pm


So, a conservative person gets criticized for illicit sexual behavior. For conservatives this requires the following responses:

1. But…but…but…Abortion! (Or, ten years ago, but but but Clinton!)

2. Defend the person no matter which side the criticism is from.

3. Blame the “liberal” ___________ (choose one: media, elites, punditry, government, universe, etc.)

4. Hyperbole, hyperbole, hyperbole.

Talk about non sequitur. Where did abortion come in?

Huh, was replying to the comments.

Mary August 31, 2009 at 5:30 pm

OMG! OMG! It was sooooo worth the wait getting home to read all about our little sex freak in action. And hiking up her skirt in Jenny Sanford’s old office for all to see just what it is she talks about online. Really, who cares that someone leaked it? I admire the person who let this get out; took a lot of guts and she is getting what she deserves as we speak! I read in the article a friend saying that ‘someone’ is trying to ruin her but looks like she ruined herself…kudos to the squealer and hopefully more skeletons/liars/cheats are ratted out. It’s what needs to be done to clean the place up and get whats coming to them!

Another guy named Will August 31, 2009 at 6:18 pm

You promised “highly-sensitive information of a sexual nature pertaining to one of the highest-level appointments in [Sanford’s] administration,” and this is the payoff? A Board of Education member who, during GWB’s first term, allegedly wrote erotica, lap danced and showed her underwear? Really?

Good God on a bicycle.

When I see a post like this, the question I ask myself is “cui bono?” (to whose benefit?). Something as shallow as this “story” indicates a hidden agenda on the part of the writer. What’s your angle?

Erotica has been around for thousands of years (see the Bible’s Song of Solomon), as has domestic violence (Biblical references in 1 Peter 3:7, Galatians 5:19-21, Colossians 3:19). The former is not Biblically condemned, while there are multiple Biblical admonitions against the latter.

Short version: The Bible and state law are both cool with writing your fiancee into a spicy sex story, but they’re NOT down with shoving her into furniture during an argument.

Aprice August 31, 2009 at 6:30 pm

Well now, awl my little shoog-guhs, this is the South and the South is eccentric. That’s one of its most charming characteristics.

I mean, bless her heart, that Ms. Maguire. She’s a fine Christian lady with a WHOLE lot of passion that pulses pleasurably-through to the very fiber of her being.

(I swear, it doesn’t get better than this! I’m Southern through-and-through: South Carolina and Georgia…both maternal and paternal families here before the War: Revolutionary. This Maguire thing just cracks me up…you CANNOT make this stuff up…it reads like a Hiassen novel.)

NVB August 31, 2009 at 6:36 pm

Although I am very uncomfortable with the premise that Maguire’s online erotic writings are fair game, I was trying to bring attention to the legitimate issues related to Ms. Maguire’s appointment almost two years ago. Where was FITSNews (and its outraged commenters) on Maguire’s appointment then, before this salacious stuff?

Sue August 31, 2009 at 6:48 pm

Please consider that someone could be trying to ruin this woman’s life. People do it every day, and what better avenue than the internet? Regardless of your feelings on her personal beliefs, they are HER beliefs. She obviously was not attempting to impose them on anyone else. She was chair of the Public School Board. I don’t find it necessary to make judgment calls – does anyone here actually know the truth? It amazes and sickens me that individuals have become so quick to destroy opposing viewpoints they never stop and think that the person they are lambasting is just like them, only with a different view of the pasture.

Sunni SC August 31, 2009 at 7:43 pm

Okay, y’all-I could care less what she does in her bedroom (or on the computer there-in). I just have spent the day in my office laughing my admittedly over-sized behind off. ONCE again, those who never let the church doors open with out them being outside, have been caught being less than saintly. It just seems to me that if you decide to reside on top of that moral pedestal, then you should behave in a manner befitting that pedestal. AND certainly not cast stones at those normal folks who just want to live their lives as they see fit-without hurting anyone else.

SOOO, summing up, here lies the problem with both Shamford and Bridgette-the old proverb about people living in glass houses should not throw stones.

I would also like to point out that although Shamford may be correct in his assertions that others have violated travel rules too, he and all of them should remember that you are all welcome to decide to ignore the rules, but in doing so, you are starting the trash-pile which is open to recycling when you hack someone off. In other words grow up-you got caught!!!!! Act like a man and admit it and resign. Maybe if you’re lucky Bridgett will ghost-write some e-mails for you (as someone suggested above)!

South Carolina has a great oppotunity to set a standard for ethics. Expose and dispose.

“Ay, boy, grow ye so brave?” – Titus Andronicus, Act 2, Scene 1

And now what do we have?

You have delivered Kristin Maguire: A hypocritical political appointee with homeschooled children and wet dreams?

The ides of a Carolina September? This is what half the blogosphere and the grave waited for? Refreshing the FITS page every hour then minute then by the second – the expose of the corruption and vice that rots South Carolina with politics and power?

Oh what an easy target – an easy hit. An xxx-rated something this or something that who was repaid a political favor for something more or less.

Now she is gone. Resigned.

And, the great State of South Carolina is on its way to better days and better ways? The mountain has moved Mohammad.

Please, go after the people with the power to hit back. The Senators and Legislators who pull their strings in the courts, the agencies, and the police and of course those who pull their political punches with a SLED agent or two.

They are the real targets; they are the enemy of the average South Carolinian with too many taxes, too many problems, not enough jobs and too little education for their children.

And, they are inside the State House chambers. Not, on some train with strangers in her head.

Expose them. Pull back their curtains; show more than their wet dreams. But beware Will; as you have found out already, they hit back very hard.

Unlike me, you are not dead yet. If you really want to help this place – target the Statehouse not some easy ‘win-win’ target like Maguire.

“’Tis policy and stratagem must do; That you affect; and so must you resolve,
That what you cannot as you would achieve,
You must perforce accomplish as you may.” – Titus Andronicus, Act 2, Scene 1

I am having a hard time following your post. Did you mistakenly write a response to an abortion article under this article? This article is about Kristen Maguire, a Christian evangelist and state school board member, writing porn on the internet. I can’t figure how your abortion comments relate.

Crocodile Tears: That is so funny. I thought Cindi was just a liberal wannabe until she wrote a couple of columns on transparency and honesty in state government and stuff like that. Nobody paid any attention, but she tried. She even blasted one of her former idols, Jean Toal. Nothing happened there either, of course. Better than her ignorant forerunner Nina Brook. She was the dumbest of them all.

Well, one profession that will be alive and well for many years to come — the mental health professionals. All the kids of these hypocrites will be in therapy for years. Kids have been brainwashed for years by adults under the “Do as I say, not as I do”.

The skeletons having been exposed — Coming to a town near you — next claim to fame may be an appearance on the sexual offender registry. Will have to find another avenue for jollies now and could easily continue down the slippery slope. The ‘education’ field has shown how many manipulate and use children and youth to meet their needs.

Beware of the crusader against “sexual deviants”; experience tells us that they are they are most deserving of scrutiny for the conduct they crusade against.

OnNoNotAgain September 1, 2009 at 11:49 am

A question, because it appears to be unclear —
“Another former Sanford staffer tells FITS that Maguire once unbuttoned her blouse and hiked up her skirt in front of him to show off her see-thru, light blue underwear. This incident allegedly occurred not at a bar, but inside the governor’s office – at the unoccupied desk of First Lady Jenny Sanford, no less.”
Who is the him in “hiked up her skirt in front of him”?
I assumed reading it that it was the former Sanford staffer. But according to a post in the other Maguire story, some are thinking it was the LuvGuv himself.
Let’s be clear about what we are alleging and saying.

KMT September 1, 2009 at 11:50 am

Gawker has this now. Boy SC isn’t looking good in the national press these days it is? Is it something in the water in Columbia?

Chris September 1, 2009 at 12:24 pm

I heard she’s not going to quit like Sanford. Sanford said he just wants to stick it out as governor.

Redwood Rhiadra September 1, 2009 at 12:56 pm

“This source says that Maguire emphatically denied that the writing samples were hers, and that she and the governor’s chief of staff, Scott English, immediately set about to ensure that none of the material remained on the Internet.”

Um, if the writing was not hers, then she has absolutely no right to remove it from the internet. Only the author would have that right.

Perry L. September 1, 2009 at 1:17 pm

So Maguire writes crappy erotic fic, no doubt because her repressive Christian Evangelical lifestyle is driving her up the wall. If she wasn’t such a hypocrit I would say good for her but she’s home-schooling her kids so they won’t be exposed to things like sex and science in public schools, so oh well—suck it up, Kristen. You can’t have it both ways if you’re one of those holier than thou conservatives. Ooops!

(Also—that was some pretty crappy erotica, ‘Bridget’.)

Strom's Daughter September 1, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I wonder if former Republican Senator Larry Craig ever wrote any erotic fiction.

“My long legs trembled as I slid one foot under the partion and into the stall next to me. I tapped my toes three times, before hearing a gasp from the occupant. Then I farted.”

“It was going to be another great day in the U.S. Senate.”

Mrs. Tarquin Biscuitbarrel September 1, 2009 at 2:50 pm

Fortunately, the young Dane whom the protagonist fellated in “Continental Cuisine” was “clean, unlike most of the students in the Munich train station.” What a relief!

My question is, when does a home-schoolin’ mom find time to write stuff like this without having the wee ones peep over their shoulder? Perhaps G-d has providentially delayed the young Maguires’ abilities to read…

Look she may be a hypocrite, but lets not get into bashing someone for liking to fantasize and maybe engage in erotic sexual play. I think it is a good thing and she should be lauded for it. By the way, when I lived in bible belt states I always thought of Wednesday night (bible study night) as the easiest night to score.

Maria Belen Chapur has released a statement:

“Thees woman know nothing about pornografica. She ees . . . how you say . . . frigido, when compares to an Argentine hot woman. She sound like somebody alone in the airport of Columbia, wees no turistas, no peoples, no nothing. South Carolina can never be erotica. People in thees place make love to barbecue of meat and nothing else. They are too fat to make love. I weesh I never hear of South Carolina.”

Bob King September 1, 2009 at 11:21 pm

I think I may be the only one, so far, to have read her porn and noticed aloud in a blog post how very well it relates to her politics. Among other observations.

Dixie September 2, 2009 at 10:42 am

What? You mean the republicans really haven’t cornered the market on morals? They’ve been lying to us all this time? Seems to me these pompous bible thumpers spend way too much time on their knees, but it ain’t for prayin’.

Becky September 2, 2009 at 1:29 pm

Jim, when you said “a baby 12 weeks old”, are you counting the nine months as part of the age of someone? So, if we add nine months to everyone’s age, then I’m eligible for retirement right now!~ Yipee! Can you get that made official?

Watching Donna in the Sauna
by sirhugs©

This is the fifth tale about a fictional weekend of sexual adventure starring Donna. Watching Donna Play was followed by Donna Plays in the Shower; Donna Michelle and Me; and Donna Plays the Next Day. Each is written as a stand-alone story. If you wish, read this first, then enjoy the others. Or read them in order if you prefer. Unlike the others, which I did unaided bridgetkeeney had some useful suggestions to contribute as I wrote this tale. Thank you bk! She has not edited or seen the finished story, which is mine alone.

Steve Davis September 2, 2009 at 7:06 pm

LOL!!! “One day I hope to again partner with many of you…” preferably in some kind of FFM situation, where she can “assist” the other two members of the menage a trois. This would apparently be accomplished during some sort of home-based sex-education moment in which she teaches her children to “just say no” to pre-marital, non-threesome sexual encounters.

hillbillyfatigue September 2, 2009 at 11:59 pm

When, when, when are these hillbilly states who elect staggeringly hypocritical failures (a school official who does not believe public schools are suitable places for children to be educated in?) going to make good on their half-ass threats to secede? Not only do they repeatedly elect the most backwards, contemptible losers to represent them, they always insist it is just some strange fluke when said losers get found out. These yokels hate public schools so much that they will support someone like this being responsible for education policy, and they hate taking federal gov’t money to assist their unemployable, uneducated, obese, gun-loving, mouth-breathing jesus freaks, and they hate community organizers (remember Guiliani and Palin gleefully mocking those at the convention, like there is something laughable about choosing to live in a big city when one could have “small town values” like this woman’s instead?) . . . I could go on and on about what they hate, but the real question is why don’t they put down their precious donuts and their extruded chicken nuggets for a moment and secede? Please, leave the rest of us alone and go start your own country! You can have South Carolina to start out with. Or Florida. Or Texas. Take your pick, PLEASE.

hillbillyfatigue September 3, 2009 at 12:11 am

Oh, and to the guy who said “Look she may be a hypocrite, but lets not get into bashing someone for liking to fantasize and maybe engage in erotic sexual play.” She “may” be a hypocrite? What would she have to have done for you to not equivocate? Blow up a public school? And as for “liking to fantasize” – I don’t think anyone is criticizing her for fantasizing – I think they are questioning whether an appointed state official ought to be be doing it in print, prolifically. I also think you can’t seriously expect people to overlook the odious, antifeminist regressive nonsense that she wrote. I’ve only read a few brief excerpts from it but what I’ve seen is laughably tacky. She fantasized about ultra-right wing losers (e.g., a guy who is the head of a chemical corporation and ties his self-worth to what shareholders think of said company) and it seems like she is really into being degraded (“It’s your c*nt . . .”). Just because it turned her on doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t find many, many reasons to think it is aesthetically pathetic and not the slightest bit sexy. And if she didn’t want people to form opinions about it she shouldn’t have published it on the internet. It is entirely possible to “to fantasize and maybe engage in erotic sexual play” without using a computer, you know.

Ghigau September 3, 2009 at 11:45 pm

I think it’s pretty obvious that Kristin Maguire ghost-write Sanford’s love letters.

DK September 4, 2009 at 1:32 pm

It would bother me more that the head of public education home schools her children. Sounds like a better position for her would be in pubic education.

As for this, after reading her stories and looking at her picture, I’d love to meet her, especially on the train.

Victoria Blisse September 7, 2009 at 2:15 am

As an erotic romance writer and a Christian and a mother and a singer in my church choir I find this kinda sad.

Why is erotica writing such a sin?

I feel sorry for her, I do, I think we’d all panic a little if some little forgotten nugget of our past was dredged up and threatened the security of our job. Before you judge her, put yourself in her shoes. What would you do?
