SC Gubernatorial Candidate: I Did Not Have Sexual Relations With that Man

The men stepping forward to claim they had sex with Nikki Haley seem to be trying to diminish the woman's distinct advantage that comes from Not being one of the bad old boys, bad boys like that embarrassing Appalachian trail-hiking Governor Mark Sanford.

For the second time in two weeks, GOP South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley has been forced to respond to charges that she had sex with a man who supports her political opponent. This time the woman responded during the televised primary debate. (Watch it!)

Nikki Haley is the Tea Party candidate who soared to the top of the polls in May thanks to the support of Sarah Palin and Jenny Sanford. Especially Jenny Sanford, as South Carlina is totally in love with that woman. Party affiliations aside, it's hard not to view Jenny Sanford with sympathy, respect and admiration.

I Had Sex With That Woman

A South Carolina lobbyist resigned from a rival political campaign on Wednesday and then became the second man to claim he had a tryst with a Republican lawmaker trying to become the state's first female governor. . . "As Nikki Haley rises in the polls, the good old boys in Columbia see their taxpayer-funded fraternity party coming crumbling down, and they will say or do anything to hold onto their power," Tim Pearson said earlier. "This is South Carolina politics at its worst."
