Up to this point, Nikki Haley’s opponents in the South Carolina governors race have remained more or less publicly silent on the affair allegations. No more. Andre Bauer, the state’s current Lt. Gov. is challenging Haley to take a polygraph test to prove she’s innocent of the affair allegations.
This latest development may come in response to charges that too much class and dignity remained in the state’s gubernatorial primary.
Bauer has also picked up the attack line that Haley is “not the person she is pretending to be,” an attack apparently meant to conflate the affair allegations with new charges that Haley is a phony Christian.
