Donehue, you may recall, is the author of the May 14 text released by Folks today that read in part: "Your the one who screwed her. You're the one who bragged about it."
The campaign of Rep. Gresham Barrett (R-SC) -- which Folks has accused of shopping around the story of his alleged affair with Haley -- acknowledged today that Donehue "previously worked for one of our consultants."
Donehue said today on his show: "I was drug into something I didn't want to be drug into. It happens in politics."
In the texts Folks released today, Folks tells Haley campaign manager Tim Pearson: "Word I hear is that wes [Donehue] is shopping an affidavit." To which Pearson responds: "Ah. My initial thought is if it aint from you or nh then its a tough sell."
