Haley Won’t Sign Affidavit

S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley is refusing to sign a sworn affidavit offering her version of the “truth” pertaining to a pair of claims that she had romantic encounters outside the bounds of her 13-year marriage. “I’m not acknowledging something that’s not true,” Haley told reporter Robert Kittle of WSPA TV-7…

S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley is refusing to sign a sworn affidavit offering her version of the “truth” pertaining to a pair of claims that she had romantic encounters outside the bounds of her 13-year marriage.

“I’m not acknowledging something that’s not true,” Haley told reporter Robert Kittle of WSPA TV-7 (Spartanburg, S.C. – CBS). “It’s up to them to prove it. It’s not up to me to prove that I’m telling the truth. It’s up to them to prove that is true.”

Previously, Haley has refused to release taxpayer-funded email and phone records requested by members of the media – citing a legislative exemption. She eventually agreed (after three months) to a selective release of one of her taxpayer-funded email accounts, but this incomplete disclosure ended up raising more questions than answers.

For starters, Haley has only released emails from her “G” drive, which is where most political spam (and constituent email) is sent.  She did not release any information from her “L” drive, which is where lawmakers conduct the majority of their electronic correspondence. Also, the emails Haley released on Friday only cover a time period ranging between April and June of this year – making them totally irrelevant to reporters seeking to investigate any of the affair allegations that have been made against her. More importantly, Haley did not release any information from her state-issued computer hard drives – which keep a permanent record of all sent and received messages, as well as any deleted emails from her desktop and laptop computers.

Two men – FITS founding editor Will Folks and lobbyist Larry Marchant – have claimed affairs with Haley.

Folks said in May that he had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley, but provided no details (or proof). Marchant claims that he had a one-night stand with Haley in Salt Lake City, Utah on Father’s Day weekend in 2008, offering details of their encounter but no proof.

While no “smoking gun” has been unearthed to conclusively prove either claim, Folks has released dozens of text messages documenting his decision to come forward and admit his affair with Haley. In one of these texts, Haley’s campaign manager Tim Pearson wrote “we keep this under wraps and (Haley) is going to win.” Additionally, Folks released phone logs showing dozens of late-night phone conversations between himself and Haley after the Lexington Republican told a radio host that she “barely knew him.”

This week, at the request of a group investigating several of Haley’s claims, Folks released an affidavit that began to outline specific details of his relationship with the GOP nominee.

Details from Folks’ affidavit – which were first reported by Chris Haire of the Charleston City Paper – have made statewide and national news over the last two days. The affidavit was not reported on by FITSNews, however.

The organization requesting the affidavits, S.C. Conservatives for Truth in Politics (TIP), has not received a response from the Haley campaign.

Meanwhile, Marchant has said that he will provide an affidavit to the organization, but has yet to do so.

Release the full affidavit here.

Question: If someone falsely alleged you had an affair and tried to rake you over the coals over something that was patently false, what would you do?

Answer: You would sue them. In court. With lawyers and large sums of money.

Folks, you seen any legal papers lately from the Gentlelady from Lexington?

People who want another Mark Sanford (a mysterious, aloof, on the run, excessively private, too hard to work with, suspicious, etc. etc.) as their governor should definitely vote for Nikki Haley.

Andy October 14, 2010 at 12:57 pm

Great picture. That’s what I’m talking about. More of those, please.

“You’re Fired,”

Here is the affidavit that Folks released to Mosteller’s group:

Has it occurred to you that Nikki does not want to release her e-mails because she does not want her children to read them? It would be very hurtful to have them know what their mother did, that is if the insinuations that Will made were true. Remember how devastated the Sanford boys were when they read their father’s e-mails.

You're Fired October 14, 2010 at 1:25 pm

Cool.

Crooner October 14, 2010 at 1:31 pm

So you kissed her in her car? What are you: a teenager?

This affidavit is consistent with her claim that she’s been faithful to her husband. Surely you’ve got more.

Liz October 14, 2010 at 1:46 pm

“…shared first kiss while sitting in her car outside of MacDougal’s … drove to a parking lot … slid back the seats of her car so Haley could climb on top of me…”

And “…numerous instances of inappropriate sexual contact…”

Making out, yes, okay, got it.

Slide to back of car, yes, okay, got it.

Haley climbs on top of me, yes, okay, got it.

THEN WHAT?

Haley calls her mother to discuss okra gumbo recipes?
Haley polishes her fingernails and does her hair?
Haley picks up where she left off with The Secret Life of Bees?
Haley sings karaoke?

GIVE US A BREAK. DOES HALEY PULL OUT YOUR DONG AND PLACE IT INTO ONE OF HER VITAL ORIFICES?

AND DO ANY OF LIFE’S PRECIOUS BODILY FLUIDS FLOW?

DETAILS, MAN, DETAILS !

Scooter October 14, 2010 at 1:54 pm

There are 4 words that sum up Haley: She Is A Liar!

Jane October 14, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Will is doing what he knows is necessary in order to keep the public informed about politics in SC. Did Haley and Will have an affair? Looks that way. Do I care? Not even a little bit. Two consenting adults did the horizontal rhumba. That doesn’t affect anyone’s ability to do their job, unless one of the consenting adult’s was a priest, a nun or a monk.

Viscocious October 14, 2010 at 1:59 pm

At first, I gave her the benefit of the doubt. The way she’s playing this is making me think she did have “inappropriate relations”.

It won’t be untill after November till we find out. If she’s guilty, the people of SC won’t do a damn thing about it because she’s Republican.

FunkyChicken October 14, 2010 at 2:29 pm

I believe the Slick one after reading this affidavit. Scum like Haley give the Grand Old Party a bad name.

mj October 14, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Sex may be a private matter between two consenting adults, but Haley’s adamant denial and refusal to release any meaningful information has created a ripe atmosphere for blackmail. She owes it to the citizens of SC to release her emails and prove or disprove Folk’s affidavit.
Whoever has “the picture” would have the Governor at his or her mercy.

Harpo October 14, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Jane, you ignorant slut. Remember a few months back when the GOP said, “She better be telling the truth”.

Gary October 14, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Poor Will Folks!! The guy has told his locker room fantasies like a broken record a million times. He has boasted about it, he has blogged about it, he has whined about it, he has complained about it, he has sworn about it and he is even trying to write a book about it. For any one who may have missed, soon you may see him in the sky sitting on the top of a balloon crying hoarse about it.

It looks like his DNA has been permanently etched. He seems to live every single minute of his life to make it more salacious.

Expect this fancy tale to come out of him in enhanced and colorful detail, a trillion times more till he breathes his last!!

Harpo October 14, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Can’t wait for the Mark Sanford news to hit the press.

countryboy October 14, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Funny that Republicans are supposed to own the religious right and democrats are the one’s obsessed about the alleged “inappropriate physical relationship”. Guess they only give a pass when their President gets a blow job in the Oval office, huh?

Harpo October 14, 2010 at 4:30 pm

When I voted in the primary, a prominent republican poltician asked for my vote. I have known this man for years. On the way out, I turned to him and said, “You know the allegations against her are true”. Since he endorsed Haley, I was surprised when he responded, “I know. We all know”. And that is a fact!

Staffer October 14, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Affidavits don’t prove anything. However, refusal to sign an affidavit perhaps does. This is quite significant. She’s willing to lie but not commit perjury. Let’s file a lawsuit against her and notice her deposition before the election. Who is with me?

mark October 14, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Some really cool news would be Mr. Haley kicking your ass!

Skidmarks October 14, 2010 at 5:15 pm

“I’m not acknowledging something that’s not true. It’s up to them to prove it. It’s not up to me to prove that I’m telling the truth. It’s up to them to prove that is true.”

Four years of this type crap. Great.

thesushi October 14, 2010 at 6:14 pm

“It’s up to them to prove it. It’s not up to me to prove that I’m telling the truth. It’s up to them to prove that is true.”

A very dangerous statement from someone who has so many transparency issues besides this one.

Harpo October 14, 2010 at 10:07 pm

When you live in Lexington. you know who sleeps around. You just know who the loose women are. Sorry, but this is Lexington.

TetleyTeaBagger October 14, 2010 at 10:36 pm

So, Marky Mark voted *how* many times in Congress, to impeach Bill Clinton, for lying about Lewinsky? And still, he got a pass for lying about his own escapades with his soulmate Charo on the Appalachian Trail. Welcome to Bizarro World, also known as South Carolina.

But even though Nimmy Haley is Marky’s hand-picked successor-ess, you gotta sympathize with her wanting to deny bumpin’ uglies with a greasy little troll like Folksie. But this is still gonna end her 15 minutes of fame.

I’m just sayin’.

eggaday October 15, 2010 at 7:53 am

betcha Nimrata WILL go to South America.
she HAS to.

she is Sanfraud in a skirt

countryboy October 15, 2010 at 9:18 am

Looks like Governor Sanford (or as the children on this board love to call SanFraud, as if it were an original thought by them), is still respected by South Carolinians:

http://www.thestate.com/2010/10/15/1513791/voters-give-sanford-passing-grade.html

Which of course indicates that Mrs. Haley’s ALLEGED inappropriate relationship won’t stop her from becoming South Carolina’s first female governor.

Marchant releases affidavit attesting to affair with Haley
http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2010/oct/15/marchant-releases-affidavit-attesting-affair-haley/

Marchant said he had sex with Haley in a Salt Lake City hotel room in June 2008 while both were in Utah for a business conference.

“After a night together of dinner and drinks with other participants of the conference, Representative Haley and I returned to the hotel together,” Marchant said. “We went back to her room where we had sexual intercourse and I spent the remainder of the evening. I left her room at approximately 6 a.m.”

If Haley and her husband know the accusations made by Will are false, they would have the best lawyer in town suing the pants off Will. But since Haley has already removed Will’s pants on more than one occasion, it would be hard to sue them off him. Haley also lets her spokesperson make all the statements so one day when it all comes to light, she can deny the cover up since the spokesperson did it without her approval. Sad part is the people of South Carolina would rather vote for a Republican liar, cheat, and adulteress as governor than vote for a Democrat. South Carolina will again become the butt of jokes across the United States when the truth is finally revealed about Haley but by then she will be governor and no amount of bad press will get her out of office. All hale Caesar Nikki Haley.

Meh October 15, 2010 at 10:50 pm

“If Haley and her husband know the accusations made by Will are false, they would have the best lawyer in town suing the pants off Will”

They’d be making sure Will got the same treatment Mel Gibson got in “Braveheart”
(cue video of the “surgical kit”).

Will doesn’t argue very well for his side (next beyotch of note you nail, take pics when she’s passed out), but SHE does.

sober rover October 16, 2010 at 1:27 am

I am astonished, having had it “all figured out” wrong wrong wrong. Sic was supposed to spill the beans AFTER the inaug, not NOW. It does seem uncanny that she doesn’t just go to court and sue both the representative and the editor himself. Why not?
I would very much dislike being poor Mr. Haley, his soul must be doing more flip flops than a game of twister, striving to not expose in anger the truths. I presume he has asked his wife point blank to ‘Tell me the truth,Nikki?” and I presume she did,tearfully.
But if Sic just teases us a bit longer, once she is in office,
a contrite,tearful apology should vent the public spleen and efforts to evict her would be half-hearted. After all, she is a rising star.

Truth Hurts October 16, 2010 at 11:24 am

To “Staffer”:

The phone companies, for some ridiculous reason, purge text messages within several days of them being sent. You can send a subpoena if there is litigation, but they can’t provide what they don’t have. I’m sure Will, or someone, tried to obtain the text messages. Good point, though.

George October 16, 2010 at 12:17 pm

You just have to look at Will Folks and Larry Marchant to know that there is no way a hottie like Haley would sleep with either of them. This is just a ploy to make her lose votes.

Mike October 16, 2010 at 5:05 pm

Heard the Mr. Haley was moving out?

Alvin Green Cousin October 16, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Until the so-call Affidavits are file in a court of law as a legal lawsuit matter, It’s means nothing to you dumb fuck republicans who must have taken a Clemson law 101 remedial course for pervert Republicans……..Just last week, 3 Alien Lizards signed affidavits in Mullins South Carolina saying they had annal sex with Haley and two redneck Male Tea Bag Republicans while on a vacation trip to this planet…….

The Cock October 17, 2010 at 6:09 am

When she slid into the back seat, did you place your penis in her mouth or vagina?

Jerry October 17, 2010 at 8:46 am

Mr. Haley will not move out. Remember somehow he got a job in the National Guard making 66k a year. I can’t wait to hear how she used her connections to get him that. Most in the Guard who have been in there far longer are not getting anywhere near that.
