Larry Marchant Divorce: Still Waiting

Eight months after we exclusively reported on it … former South Carolina lobbyist Larry Marchant’s divorce case remains on ice.

“Nothing to report,” an attorney familiar with the proceedings tells FITS. “They are negotiating amicably.”

Marchant’s wife, Jennifer, sued him for divorce in February of this year alleging that he was unfaithful to her with three other women – one of whom was described as “a woman well-known to the parties and the citizens of the State of South Carolina.”

Obviously she was referring to S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley …

A preliminary hearing was scheduled back in February … but a judge cancelled that court date as a result of all the media attention.

So where do things stand?

Well, we know 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 (for details about that alleged encounter, click here). We also know Haley has categorically denied Marchant’s claim – and other instances of “alleged” infidelity.

More to the point – Haley’s lawyers repeatedly dismissed Marchant’s affidavit because it was not submitted in connection with a court case and (according to them) exempt from perjury laws.

Haley refused to submit an affidavit attesting to her version of events.

“It’s up to them to prove it,” she told WSPA TV 7 reporter Robert Kittle. “It’s not up to me to prove that I’m telling the truth. It’s up to them to prove that is true.”

Marchant has refused to comment on the case – causing many to speculate that he might change his story regarding the Haley affair. The attorney we spoke with said that isn’t going to happen – and that Marchant must acknowledge his affair with Haley in open court (under oath and subject to the laws of perjury).

In fact the Haley admission is critical to the case given the elevated damage it did to Marchant’s wife. The more damage she can prove, the more compensation she will receive in the eventual settlement.

“She was hurt by the other two affairs, but humiliated by the affair with Haley,” the attorney explained. “She could not leave her house for weeks.”

Will Marchant stand by his story knowing it’s going to cost him some serious coin?

We’ll find out …

Ding! Ding! Another dollar for the “exclusively” jar!

Why is this an exclusive story? Because except for Sic Willie and those directly involved (which ain’t Sic Willie), no one’s world’s turns on who did what to whom of this soap opera and thus no one cares.

It’s what a gopher at the shipyard has ironed on his tshirt sleeve to show off his union membership to the other guys.

CNSYD October 9, 2013 at 5:06 pm

Management is not (was not) eligible for union membership. So I was never in a union. In my many years as a management representative to the labor unions, more likely than not management (especially those that were promoted from the blue collar labor force to management) were the root cause of labor problems.

And if I was Mrs. Fits…I think I would have probably had enough stories written about Haley at this point.
At some point, you gotta let it go.

Nobody cares.

Roberto October 9, 2013 at 12:05 pm

So “a woman well-known to the parties and the citizens of the State of South Carolina.” could be Lady Gaga, or Madonna. What makes it obviously Nikki Hayley? The say so of a three time loser and philanderer?

“a woman well-known to the parties and the citizens of the State of South Carolina.”

CharlesDikkens October 9, 2013 at 4:17 pm

Sadly, no one seems to care anymore about Naughty Nikki’s pre-gubernatorial sexcapades. Like all Repubilcan women, they eventually stop screwing around, and let their butts get huge. I miss our over-sexed luv-guvs.

This is a classic media …….”howitzer”…

Unlike the Monica Lewinsky DNA cum-on-blue-dress evidence, there’s probably no DNA evidence in this Marchant-Haley affair since Haley swallowed it.

There is nothing like eating the evidence!

“She could not leave her house for weeks”

Damn straight. Every time she walked through the front door to go out she started giggling so hard she peed in her pants

She couldn’t believe her husband or any husband could be so dumb as to actually put their infidelity in writing and have it notarized

C’mon Man

Still laughing October 9, 2013 at 1:21 pm

I’m not Mrs. Marchant, but I’m doing the same thing-laughing my head off and wetting my pants. This is hilarious-her husband put the affair in writing and had it notarized-oh, this is too much Ha ha ha

With teeth like those, she could give some kind of head. Those lucky bastards Marchant, Folks, and whoever’s the other guy.

Vagina Dentata October 9, 2013 at 3:30 pm

Marchant and Haley together are like one big Teeth Monster.

You know me October 9, 2013 at 3:37 pm

I want to know what dentist she uses, so I won ‘t.

Vagina Dentata October 9, 2013 at 3:47 pm

She uses a veterinarian, not a dentist, so you’re safe.

cherokee October 9, 2013 at 4:36 pm

Please tell me which vet. she uses so I don’t ruin my dog’s teeth. Maybe she and Sheba get a group rate.

Boz Martin October 9, 2013 at 6:28 pm

Never was fond of the use of any kind of teeth on my knob. Always heard that a gummer was best, but never experienced that.

Actually the affair with Nikki Haley is the least important because it was obvious they reconciled after that admission so that cannot be used against him really in the divorce proceedings.

That picture of Haley…..Surley proves Alien interaction and experimentation.

Fed up October 10, 2013 at 5:32 pm

Fed UP!!!
Re-electing most of these psycho self serving narcissist is a horrible mistake. just look at Obama! He and Haley are just alike, no difference.
Please people do not make the same mistake and re-elect Haley!
You can throw in Clyburn, Wilson, Graham, Harrell, leatherman, Peeler, Martin and most everyone else, except Congressman Gowdy and maybe Mulvaney. Sanford has already been an embarrassment, just give him a little more time and it will get worse.
Vote change people, change. We need fresh faces and new ideas. Not the same old tored worn out BS from these professional BSers!
No incumbent left behind!

You must not have heard former US Rep Barney Frank on Rachel Maddow last night singing the praises of Mulvaney for his work WITH Barney before he retired on cutting the military. Those people in Sumter County and at Shaw just might wake the hell up about Mulvaney.

She must have been very, very happy.
