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.

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.

No point.

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.

“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.
