Skip to comments.South Carolina's GOP Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley denies affair with political blogger
Posted on 05/24/2010 12:40:28 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
A political blogger is claiming he had a "inappropriate physical relationship" with South Carolina Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley.
Haley has "categorically" denied the accusation by Will Folks, a former spokesman for Gov. Mark Sanford who now blogs and has done paid public relations work for politicians including Haley.
"Several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki," Folks wrote on his site, FITSnews.com. "It is what it is, and aside from the Haley family Michael, Nikki, Rena and Nalin I feel no need to apologize or explain myself to anyone. People are human. We make mistakes."
In a statement, Haley denied an improper relationship.
I have been 100 percent faithful to my husband throughout our 13 years of marriage, Haley said in a statement sent via her campaign this morning. This claim against me is categorically and totally false.

If it is false, sue him.
False or true why would some piece of crap person do this and then post a public blog about it? What an all around low life.

Better sue him.
After New York Times v. Sullivan it's almost impossible for a public figure to prove defamation. And a political candidate is by definition a public figure.
If he can’t prove it, he’s toast.
All he said was “inappropriate physical relationhsip”. Cagey. Could be anything.
“False or true why would some piece of crap person do this”
Because Haley has surged to the lead in the polls for the
GOP nomination for governor in SC. She is not part of the inner good old boy circle, thus she must be stopped at any cost.
Check the perp’s criminal record.
Hell he could have gotten a brush of elbow boob at an event to come up with “inappropriate physical relationship” He seems like a 3rd grade level kind of guy...
Anyone that has seen this butt ugly guy knows that Nikki would not do him.
I can see why he might be tempted to brag about it.
Thats a really nice looking lady.Anybody have a pic of the guy making the claim?
eeeeeww!! why would any woman even think about him?
great idea. give the phony story more dnc media shelf life.
This Old Ugly TROLL who appears to be part of a Bauer smear campign has got tob kidding.
Have you ever seen a photo of the fat ugly blogger?
the ugly troll . please spare us .
this phony scam has the feel of vile Bauer .
What a frickkin paste eater...
Its a Bauer smear !
Bauer set up Sanford and I think this creep was involved .
Former employee and has a pr firm.
I agree with all your posts. I would say though that Folks looks a lot like her husband. If I was still in SC I would vote for Haley in a heartbeat.
This is all I need to know about this piece of scum!!!
For the benefit of the folks who don’t know Nikki Haley.
She is an elected official from South Carolina currently serving in the South Carolina House of Representatives where she represents Lexington County.
Haley is currently running for the Republican nomination in the South Carolina gubernatorial election, 2010 and has been endorsed by former Governor and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford, and former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
As Per May 2010 Rasmussen Polling, Haley is the front-runner for the GOP nomination. Now we begin to understand why the dirty tricks brigade is working overtime.
Many people don’t know this, but Nikki Haley has an exotic background in terms of ethnicity.
Her parents Dr. Ajit and Raj Randhawa are Indian Punjabi Sikh immigrants from Amritsar and she has an older brother Mitti, sister Simran Singh, and younger brother Charan. She went to Clemson University and majored in Accounting and then joined the FCR Corporation before joining her mother’s business in 1994.
The family business grew to a multi million dollar company. Her brother who is an active duty officer has served in the U.S. Army for the past 20 years.
If she wins, she will be the second person of Indian descent to be the governor of a US state ( Bobby Jindal being the first ).
More on Nikki Haley’s background :
Haley was raised in a Sikh family, and identifies herself as a Christian, and sits on the board for Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church, Medmission.
On September 6, 1996 she married Michael Haley, in a Methodist church ceremony. Michael is a federal employee with the United States Department of the Army and an officer in the South Carolina Army National Guard. Together they have two children, Rena and Nalin.
Send this low life to the Taliban, carrying a Koran that has been flushed down the toilet, and sporting a Mohamed cartoon. They will know how to deal with him.
She can’t afford the distraction during the campaign. A law suit would suck all the energy out of her campaign. Just deny it and get on with trying to win the election.
If the allegation costs her the election, she’d have more reason (and time) to deal with a law suit. The statute of limitations would be long after she would be sworn in (or not).
I once had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Queen Elizabeth. Nobody blogs about me.
I don't believe I'd have told that, brother.
Maybe he just grabbed her ass. Doesn’t mean she is guilty of anything.
Bingo! Andre Bauer is a republican version of Rod Blagojevich ... an uber-slimeball.
Nikki Haley, on the other hand, is South Carolina’s answer to Sarah Palin -— conservative, straight-shooting, and beautiful.
He’s a piece of work, take a look here: http://www.fitsnews.com/about-2/sic-willie-2/
Thanks for the background info. Interesting the 2 states that will have elected governors (if Haley goes on to win the nomination and election )of Indian extraction are in the ever-bigoted (per the MSM/DNC template) south.
Just a few days ago some political opponents of Nikki
tried to get a court order to pull her advertising off the TV networks....it failed, and now this crap.. When a good person is ahead in the race, someone goes out to find a low life pissant to smear the likes of Nikki Utter SB.
It makes you wonder why anyone chooses to run for elective office any more. If they can’t argue their positions, they opt out and smear their opponent’s character. Positively disgusting.
slander law isn’t that simple...she can at least try though
You’re correct...it’s a shame how many people don’t know how difficult defamation/slander law is...especially when it comes to a public figure.

If he cant prove it, hes toast.
Those of us in SC who’ve known anything about Will Folks have known he’s toast for some time now. The ONLY thing this could do is ingratiate him to (1) the ONE particular Republican candidate who put him up to it — and I can’t WAIT to find out which scum bag DID it, becuase his career in SC and beyond is OVER, and (2) to ingratiate himself to the Democrats, who THRIVE on this kind of Chicago-style, dirty-pool thugery. His future looks QUITE BRIGHT with them.
On what basis do you claim this is a Bauer smear? Not that I doubt it — but if this IS a Bauer campaign thing — I want to dedicate the next two weeks of my life to making Andre Bauer as big a HAS BEEN in South Carolina as I did David Beasley back in 1998. And I’m quite certain I’ll enjoy it ALMOST as much — IF the Bauer connection can be substantiated!
I’ve been telling my Indian colleagues at work that there’s a chance that America will get its second State Governor of Indian descent. It puts smiles on their faces.
Here’s a working link to her comments to a local radio station earlier today:
True or false, it is a stupid and vile thing to say...
