FITS founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. “Sic Willie”) released an initial 281-word excerpt from his forthcoming and as yet untitled “tome of love” – a detailed description of his first “eighth-grade make out session” with then-State Rep. Nikki Haley in early February of 2007.
While we can say that much of Sic’s book focuses on his experience campaigning for former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford (and his two-and-a-half years as Sanford’s gubernatorial press secretary), we can promise that there will be plenty of intimate details about his “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley, as well as never before published emails and new information that could conclusively disprove Haley’s promise that she has been “100 percent faithful” to her husband, S.C. First Gentleman Micheal Haley.
What sort of information are we referring to?
Let’s just say it’s the sort of evidence that (once you’ve been compelled to produce it) you can’t spin your way out of – or ignore like Haley’s chief-of-staff (a central player in this drama) continues to do.
Remember, Haley has pledged to resign her office in the event that proof comes out that she was unfaithful to her husband. Will she honor that promise? Or will South Carolina be treated to a local version of “it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is?”
We’ll see …
Anyway, this first excerpt from Folks’ book expands upon information that he previously referenced in his sworn affidavit from last October – a document that was provided in response to a request from a third party.
Please be warned, some of the descriptions contained in this excerpt could be considered NSFW (Not Safe For Work):
We never took our clothes off that first night, but the physical relationship between us progressed much faster than I expected. After sliding the front seats of her SUV as far back as they would go, Nikki climbed on top of me – rubbing her crotch back and forth over the growing bulge in my pants while I groped her ass and ran my hands through her hair and up and down her back.
John Mayer’s “Slow Dancing In a Burning Room” played on her CD changer.
Nikki and I kissed even harder and heavier than we had before (away from the lights of the Vista, we weren’t worried about people seeing us here), and at one point I slid my hands under her turtleneck and felt her breasts over the black bra she was wearing.
It was intense. In fact it was one of the most passionate “eighth-grade make out sessions” I’ve ever experienced in my life. Immediately, it was apparent to both Nikki and I that the sexual chemistry between the two of us was very strong.
Nikki told me that night that she had never been unfaithful to her husband – and that up until that evening she had never so much as kissed another man before.
As with everything else she said to me at the time – politically or otherwise – I believed her. Unreservedly, even. I asked her why she let me kiss her earlier that night and she said she didn’t know – a theme that would evolve and expand over the next few months as our affair blossomed.
Around forty-five minutes after we arrived at Emily Douglas Park we left – and Nikki took me back to my car.
Now … we’ll get into our reasons for releasing this particular excerpt at a later date – or maybe we won’t.
And maybe we’ll publish future excerpts as the mood strikes us – or maybe we won’t.
By the way, anytime Haley wants to sue us for libel, we’re waiting … in fact, it might be good to get some sworn statements on the record as it relates to this case, don’tcha think?
You know, since Haley has thus far refused to do that …
