S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley claimed she suffered physical abuse at the hands of a child care provider while growing up in Bamberg, S.C.
The struggling first-term “Republican” made the shocking revelation during a press conference in Greenville, S.C. – expounding on a narrative briefly raised in her 2012 book, Can’t Is Not An Option.
“One day I came home and I had a lot of bruises and a lot of issues,” Haley said. “When it happened to me, my parents didn’t know what to do. They didn’t know who to go to. No one knew how to handle it.”
Haley did not identify her abuser or any other details of what she allegedly experienced. She claimed when her parents confronted the couple who used to watch her they “packed up and left” the state.
Obviously this website is no friend of Haley’s – and it’s abundantly clear at this point that everything emanating from her word hole needs to be taken with an ocean of salt – but if she really was victimized as a child it’s no laughing matter.
