Skip to comments.Cell, Email Records Could Solve “Haley-gate” (Blogger says he has texts, voice messages and emails)
Posted on 05/25/2010 10:44:20 AM PDT by FTJM
Phone records, text messages, emails, voice mails these are the identifying markers of any love affair, and ground zero when it comes to any he said, she said battle in civil or criminal court.
Well weve got the ultimate he said, she said battle on our hands in South Carolina, where bad boy blogger Will Folks (our founding editor) has been called to the carpet following his forced admission of a vexingly vague inappropriate physical relationship with S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley, the front-runner for the GOP gubernatorial nomination.
Now all we need is a courtroom.
Not only has Haley denied Folks claim (which he says was made under duress), shes gone on the radio and basically accused him of taking money to attack her (ouch). Of course, in another bizarre rumor making the rounds, some are speculating that Folks and Haley actually ginned the whole thing up together in an effort to get ahead of the story.
No kidding! (Thats actually the spin coming out of the S.C. State House).
Still other rumors claim that our website has simply decided to in Sarah Palins words make things up in an effort to punk the mainstream media, which we have to admit sounds like it would be a lot of fun.
Obviously, though, this wasnt the way that this story was supposed to unfold. Weve been longtime Haley backers here at FITS, and we thought that our years of consistent advocacy on her behalf (and on behalf of the fiscally conservative ideals she represents) might count for something as this unfortunate tale unfolded.
It clearly didnt.

Why do they need a court? Haven’t they got the media who would pay dearly for this stuff?
Put up or shut up.
Excellent point. Also, Hailey has categorically denied the allegation and stated that she has been 100% faithful to her husband throughout their marriage. That’s good enough for me, besides it’s not like Democrats are concerned about being unfaithful any way.
Fits news has “staff”? Why does a two-bit blog need “staff”? What’s next? Interns??
Now he’s on the hook to release them. Otherwise he’s just pissin in the wind.
Any update from the National Enquirer’s story on Obama’s infidelities.....that story sank faster than a BP oil rig. But look at the dem-left ride this particular story.
Eaxactly! If he does have this then he needs to show the evidence. I can say all day that I have something but proving that I have what I say I do is another thing entirely! Just imagine what one could make up if it were that easy!
I don’t think this b.s. story is even worthy of our consideration.
This story is so trashy. Sheer gossip. I read all of today’s and all of yesterday’s articles and they really say NOTHING. It’s all innuendo and they are using a strong dose of innuendo to try to keep a strong, smart, lady out of the governor’s house and push her back in the kitchen.
What is an inappropriate relationship? And how do cell phone records prove that between 2 people who work together on a regular basis? In the heat of a campaign hundreds of phone calls fly back and forth between co-workers. So? What does that prove?
The good ol’ boys in SC politics better just get back to chewing their tobaccy as they sit around the cracker barrel gossiping in back of the gas station.
They don’t like this lady because she wants transparency in a state house where nobody goes on the record about anything. She’s right, and they’re wrong.
He may be negotiating.
I guess if you are going to kiss then tell (very weasily thing to do) you might as well make some $$ off your weasilyness
Fits news has staff? Why does a two-bit blog need staff? Whats next? Interns??
he has multiple personalities that make up his staff
This creepy Will Folks maggot sounds like your ideal soul mate.
I, anonymous blogger TitansAFC, would like to take this time to admit that several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Lindsey Graham.
I will not be discussing the details of that relationship, nor will I be granting any additional interviews about it to members of the media beyond what I have already been compelled to confirm.
I am told that at least one story based upon this information will be published this week. Watching all of this unfold, I have become convinced that the gradual release of this information is deliberately designed to advance this story in the press while simultaneously forcing either evasive answers or denials on my part or on Lindseys part.
———”Without Will admitting to the affair there would be no story so why is he admitting it?
The source tells Free Times that on June 26, 2009, Folks called him, near tears, admitting that hed had an affair with Haley and urging him not to tell members of the media about it.”———
WTF? Oh shut up I have a hard time believing Will was crying(he would be braggin)... or this guy would remember the exact date...
———”Furthermore, the source who is not affiliated with any South Carolina gubernatorial campaign says former Haley staffer B.J. Boling told him Haley had confided in him about the affair around the time Boling was working on her House reelection campaign in 2008.
Boling, who is working on the GOP gubernatorial campaign of U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, said he didnt want to comment about the allegations to Free Times.”-———
So this source who listened to crying Will also talked to former Haley staffer who apparently got Haley to tell him she was having an affair with Will
oh, and this former staffer now works for an apposing campaign
oh, come on...
Because everyone knows he likes men, not women.
Questions on this:
What motivation does this guy have for making this up? Driving traffic to his site and whatever small amount of money he might receive from some antagonistic party could not possibly make up for the 100% loss of credibility if he is proved to have been lying. It doesn’t make sense for him to push this if he’s not telling the truth.
On the other hand.....
Why would Haley categorically deny the story if she knew it to be true? Surely, if the allegations are true, then she has to know that he has in his possession the emails and texts and perhaps other items....ready for disposal to the press. If it were true, I wouldn’t think she’s deny it this strongly.....she’d simply have “no comment”.
What’s the deal here? This is strange....
If there is anything unseemly in the texts etc...she’s in trouble.
I agree. I’m willing to forgive her having an affair if she’s upfront and honest about it. If it turns out she’s lying, she’s done. Let’s wait and see if he has anything before making a judgment though.
1. The story is true.
2a. Haley knew the story to be true, but...
2b. ...did not know of the existence of confirming evidence.
Given that situation, she'd think that she could deny everything and brazen it out (like Bill Clinton and his crew did until his DNA turned up on the blue dress).
I don’t know......how could she not be aware of the existence of the evidence....if it does indeed exist? Surely she would know she sent the stuff, and surely she would have to assume that he would still have those in his possession. She can’t be that dumb....
Why would she assume he’d kept them? Given that they’re about potentially embarrassing personal conduct, she might have assumed that he’d deleted them (as she probably did on her end).
I don’t know.....I would think that if it was true, and he came out with it, and he said there was “evidence”, she would have to assume that he had it, since she obviously would know of its existence. If that was the case, it doesn’t make sense for her to double-down and deny it.
I'm sure that after the election this story will be “forgotten” and whoever manged to make the runoff will run against her has the anti-haley candidate.
It is the establishment's only hope to keep power.
