Will Folks, publisher of the fitsnews.com blog on insider South Carolina politics, this morning posted a tawdry little story about the Luv Guv's husband Michael visiting a Myrtle Beach strip club in 2009. The kicker was that he didn't visit alone, but rather with his wife Nikki along for the ride, so to speak, and Mr. Larry Marchant, who confirmed the story for fitsnews.com...
Marchant, you may recall, is one of two men that went on record during Haley's campaign against Vince Sheheen as saying they had an "inappropriate physical relationship" with the Governor. "Sexual relations," he said in his best Truman Capote manner. "We had sex." The other self-described paramour, of course, was Folks himself, who is no doubt working very hard on his tell-all recounting his encounter(s) with the Luv Guv.
So Folks alluded in this story to an ongoing investigation he is conducting of Michael Haley's strip-club proclivities, and tweeted earlier today that:
Chicago source: 2nd strip club allegedly visited by @nikkihaley in 2008 is called "Chicago Food and Beverage."
Why was @NikkiHaley in the Windy City in 2008? According to Folks:
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) held a conference in Chicago at the time of the 2nd alleged @nikkihaley strip club visit.
He immediately followed that up with this one:
According to S.C. State Ethics filings @nikkihaley reimbursed herself $1,621.68 on 7/28/2008 for "ALEC Conference"
For my part, I'm popping some popcorn. I'm not sure this woman can make it to half a term...
