Another ball drops in South Carolina Politics. Gubernatorial candidate
Andre Bauer Campaign Adviser has resigned over what is called, “inappropriate conduct”. Knowing that Marchant is connected to South Carolina political consultant Rod Shealy who wouldn’t mind taking down Nikki Haley, we wonder if the Haley/Folks affair allegations are connected here.
Update: Marchant was canned for saying he had a “one night stand” with Haley. So now the Bauer and Barrett Campaign are throwing mud in Haley’s direction.… Hmmm you wonder why now? Haley still has a double digit lead 6 days before the primary. Just today, another Haley campaign ad came out, this time featuring her husband and children. Interesting timing for another affair, I mean ‘one night stand’ allegation eh?
Republican gubernatorial hopeful Andre Bauer said today he has asked for and received the resignation of a political consultant for “inappropriate conduct” but would say little more.
Lt. Gov. Bauer announced that adviser Larry Marchant gave him his resignation at noon today.
Bauer said he had become aware of a situation several days ago, and reached the conclusion that decisive action was dictated.
His news release contained no specifics. “We asked for and received the resignation,” Bauer spokesman Hank Page said in an e-mail. “Beyond that, we will have no further comment.”
Haley campaign responds:
“As Nikki Haley rises in the polls, the good old boys in Columbia see their taxpayer-funded fraternity party coming crumbling down, and they will say or do anything to hold onto their power,” Pearson said. “This is South Carolina politics at its worst. The people of our state deserve better, and when Nikki Haley is governor, they’ll get it.”
