S.C. State House lobbyist Larry Marchant is refusing to comment on his pending divorce case – a court drama which is likely to put his dramatic 2010 confession of an affair with Gov. Nikki Haley under the microscope.

Specifically, Marchant is refusing to address what could wind up being a six-figure question for him: Did he or did he not have a one-night stand with then-S.C. Rep. Haley in Salt Lake City in June of 2008? That’s a question Marchant could be forced to answer in open court – subject to the laws of perjury.

So … what’s Marchant going to say?

We finally reached the veteran lobbyist this week – but he sounded confused when we asked him point blank if he intended to stand by his story.

“I don’t know,” Marchant told FITS.

Wait … he doesn’t know?

Marchant quickly clarified his comment.

“No, that’s not what I mean … I know what I’m going to … you just … you caught me with my mind on something else,” he stammered.

Hmmmm …

After a bit of hemming and hawing, Marchant finally said “look, I can’t talk about this” and referred us to his lawyers.

Marchant’s wife, Jennifer, sued him for divorce in Richland County family court on February 6 . A preliminary hearing in the case has been scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on February 20.

Marchant submitted an affidavit in October 2010 swearing that he and Haley had a one night stand in Salt Lake City, Utah in June 2008. The divorce filing submitted by Jennifer Marchant indicates this admission by her husband caused her “humiliation and embarrassment” and that she “was unable to appear in public for some time.”

Haley has categorically denied Marchant’s claim – and all allegations of infidelity – however she has refused to submit an affidavit.

Regardless of how you feel about Haley…her accusers are looking like the lairs now.
FITS failed to produce anything more than records of phone calls to a client. Now Marchant, who was of dubious character in the first place, is vacilating…
Sadly: if you don’t like Haley, her Haters over-reached and are just helping her look more like a victim, and worthy of compassion from liars and the corrupt..

He’s screwed either way he answers that question. If he says he didn’t do donkey teeth then he looks like a complete liar/buffoon. If he does then his soon to be ex-wife takes him to the cleaners.

Hope the strange was worth it to him.

Ha, that’s what someone told me ages ago. I don’t personally subscribe to it. Been married 40+ years, wouldn’t have it any other way. Got good kids, too, thankfully, despite my rantings. I’m a sarcastic sob, for sure, but all bark, no bite.

This could get GOOD!!!!!
I bet he wishes he didn’t run his mounth, now. Unless he got paid off to do it. And that begs the question: Was FITS paid too?…and how much and by whom? and can FITS be prosecuted for it?.
If evidence gathering for this case leads to FITS being Deposed…I’d LOVE to see the shoe on that foot. We’d find out if the man who calls everyone else a a lair, is a liar and if he’s on the take.

so stupid. He gave an affidavit of adultery with haley. His wife then kept him, i.e stayed under same roof with him, had a baby with him. Haley issue is a non-issue in this case. Fits, you should talk to some of your “high powered” attorneys before you post stupid shit.

Haley should be subpoena’d and forced to be Deposed for the Truth, under oath.
Then the Truth will be known.

Turns out Will was right 3 years ago when he tried to scuttle Haley’s bid to become governor — wasn’t him who was the loverboy, though. Or was it? Maybe Nikki Haley is a serial fornicator…

Must have been the best pussy he ever got in his whole life. He’s still dazed and confused at the pussy he got from Nikki. Head spinning. Post traumatic stress. She was more than he could handle, that’s clear.
