Andre Bauer: Although I Claimed I Had Nothing To Do With My Paid Consultant Claiming An Affair With My Rival, Sacred Honor Now Demands She Take A Lie Detector Test To Disprove That Claim

Wow, sacred honor seems to be a very elastic term among the South Carolina political class, justifying every selfish impulse one has.

I think I'm moving there. Sacred Honor or bust!

Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer challenged GOP gubernatorial opponent Nikki Haley today to take a lie-detector test to prove that she didn't have an affair, as his former campaign consultant claimed.

...

"Nobody has been a better friend of transparency than Andre Bauer," Bauer said in a news release.

Well, his motives certainly are transparent. I'll give him that.

"Ms. Haley, on the other hand, speaks of transparency, but apparently only for other people, not for herself. ... Now, we learn that she is refusing to release phone and text messages which could clear up some of the unfortunate recent allegations."

Bauer also said Haley is "not the person she is pretending to be."

Compare to this statement he made in the last debate, that this campaign should be "on the issues" and that he has nothing to do with Larry "Crusher of Ass" Marchant's own sacred-honor-disclosures.

Meanwhile, Haley says she'll resign if she's proven to have lied.

"If something were to come out that validates the claims against you in terms of stepping out on your husband, on your marriage," Cohen asked, "would you resign as governor?"

"Yes," Haley said.

I'm no longer sure of the point of all this, given what I now know about South Carolina politics. If Haley is proven to have cheated on her husband with a wife-beater and a wife-ignorer, and to have lied vigorously about that, can we not say that Sacred Honor compelled her to do so?
