Governor Mark Sanford has made comments about the affair allegations against gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley Tuesday. Sanford says his ex-staffer and political blogger, Will Folks’, claims that Folks had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki Haley seems to be part of a game.
It gets joined with a host of others in condemning this sort of last minute political attack. We’re in this silly season of politics. You get into the last couple of weeks and there are all kinds of crazy claims designed to create, at minimum, uncertainty or doubt, and maximum throw somebody off their game.
For Haley, the game has just begun- “They can do whatever they want, but they will not distract me or derail me from the focus I have of bringing government back to the people.”
Haley denies the allegations. The governor would not comment who he thinks is behind them.
