Haley: If affair is proven, I'd resign office

Jun 4, 2010 9:39:00 AM - thestate.com
S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley said Thursday that if she is elected governor and irrefutable evidence of an affair surfaces, she would resign.

Haley made the comments on a Columbia radio show a day after a Statehouse lobbyist claimed to have had a sexual relationship with the married Haley at a 2008 school-choice conference in Utah.

It was the second time in as many weeks that Haley, a Republican and the lone woman in South Carolina's race for governor, was denying allegations about her personal life.

Last week a Columbia blogger and former Haley aide claimed to have had "an inappropriate physical relationship" with Haley in 2007. Neither claim has been supported by proof, only circumstantial evidence.

S.C. voters will decide the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor in Tuesday's primary.
