COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) A GOP lawmaker hoping to be the state's first female governor is getting publicity for all the wrong reasons.
First a political blogger said he and Rep. Nikki Haley had an inappropriate physical relationship when he worked for her in 2007. Then a lobbyist said he had a one-night stand with her in a Salt Lake City hotel room during a school choice conference.
On Thursday, state Sen. Jake Knotts used an ethnic slur to refer to Haley, whose parents immigrated from India.

I hope that Jake Knotts gets defeated ASAP.
If the rag fits, wear it.
Sounds like BS to me.
Anyone who thinks a smear campaign is the way to win office has already disqualified himself from public service.
These guys need to find another line of work. And, preferably, another political party.
Someone must be in deep trouble..
For Gov we have the ex-Lt Governor who was speeding at like 90 mph, as a pilot tried to take off too much airplane loaded with fuel on a short runway and hit a tree, tried to blame the airplane mechanic- I’d vote for a Democrat before I’d vote for that clown.
Another good old boy Republican who the establishment likes
And Haley, who is a fiscal conservative.
The psychos are going after Haley who will get my vote. Sarah Palin was in Columbia SC to support Haley, nothing more needs to be said.
SCREW the racist State Senator, I don’t get to vote against that scumbag.
I'll leave that one to the good people of South Carolina to decide!
(and really, it's not like the other candidates are so attractive, or there's some dead-cert evidence about infidelity...good luck, SC!)
Camel effer is more descriptive in my opinion but I could also go with sons of pig f’n dogs.
Earth to Haley campaign: Tell Sanford to STFU and go away until the election is over. No matter how crazy this gets - the last person you need identifying himself with your campaign is this schmutz.
Gov. Sanford was a good mentor. His personal life appears to be crap but have you ever heard the guy speak? Sharp as a tack.
So he's sitting at home watching the local news and he turns to his wife and says, "Hey honey, she's lying. I F***ed her in Salt Lake 6 years ago when we went to that conference...."
Is that what I'm supposed to believe?
That’s exactly what I was thinking. I’m tired of these jackasses reinforcing the stereotypes.
All politics is local, in some ways, and I've got Ohio to worry about here...thanks for the info., and you all hold down the fort down there - I'll be rooting for Haley! ;)
I shot a 250 pound wild hog last year and it really looked a lot like Jake Knotts, but probably tasted better. Jake stinks.
Jake Knotts, you are too stupid to be a state senator. You're fired!
Election smear campaigns are a tradition in South Carolina. They have developed it into an art form.
“Election smear campaigns are a tradition in South Carolina. They have developed it into an art form.”
BTTT. When the politicians went stumping around SC in the old days, a little moonshine, often a lot flowed to get votes, and anything was likely to be said about their opponent. Truth was not a requirement. I grew up in Horry county.
ROTFLMAO. Good one.
The marxists with thier latest “diversity” hate voting bloc is trying to make a tado about this. Don’t know that Americans are buying the Left’s latest “victims.”
