When shady South Carolina blogger Will Folks claimed he had an affair with SC gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley, I said we’d need a little more time to determine whether he was telling the truth,
So, here’s how I’m looking at the story. There will be some hard evidence if this happened. Nikki Haley didn’t thank him one day for writing a nice column about her and then ask him to meet her in a hotel room. If they slept together, Folks has emails, texts, and IM messages that will prove it. That’s what he’s claiming, right? If he really has them, they’ll be released within a few days time and I’ll believe something happened. Until then, I think Haley deserves the benefit of the doubt. So, unless we see something solid from Folks by Friday, I’d say SC Republicans should assume that Folks is lying. In any case, lying or not, he’s obviously a world class douchebag.
That was a week ago. So, has Folks ever delivered the proof?
He produced some phone records that showed he and Haley spent a significant amount of time on the phone together when he worked for her campaign. He’s also continued to flog the story endlessly on his blog.
Yet, he hasn’t produced anything that shows they had an affair. There are no texts, no IMs, and no emails proving her guilt.
