SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES RALLY AROUND LEADER ACCUSED OF CHILD MOLESTATION
By FITSNEWS || A statement has been issued on the website of Upstate social conservative Joshua “Josh” Kimbrell – the (former) member of Gov. Nikki Haley‘s “Faith and Family Coalition” who has been accused of molesting his three-year-old son.
The statement was issued on behalf of the board of the directors of the Palmetto Conservative Alliance – which includes three members of Haley’s faith and family group.
“Josh is in the midst of a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife to maintain an on-going parenting relationship with his three year-old son,” the statement reads. “It is not uncommon that allegations such as these arise in the course of such disputes, particularly when the complainant, in this case the ex-wife, can benefit from the allegations.”
Obviously that’s a reference to Kimbrell’s ex-wife, Kacy Kimbrell.
“It is our hope that the truth surrounding these allegations will quickly become evident for all concerned,” the statement continues. “Pending the legal outcomes of this matter, we stand together in our support of Josh.”
That’s a decidedly different response than the one Haley provided – which was to scrub her website of any reference to Kimbrell.
As we noted in our last post, “if Kimbrell is innocent, then his accuser is guilty of the most insidious character assassination we’ve ever seen. If he’s guilty, though, there is literally no punishment we view as too severe. And there’s no end to the public relations nightmare about to befall the S.C. ‘Republican’ establishment – including Kimbrell’s buddies in Greenville, S.C.”
