DescriptionIn May 2010 Will Folks the onetime spokesman for South Carolina governor Mark Sanford sparked a sex scandal as juicy as his former boss’s trip to the Appalachian Trail (by way of Buenos Aires). That month Folks claimed he had had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with State Representative Nikki Haley—then running in a competitive Republican primary for the gubernatorial nomination now South Carolina’s governor. The affair took place Folks said when he had worked for Haley as a political consultant three years earlier. Haley’s camp denied it. Who got the scoop? Well Folks did.
