Haley is vehemently denying it ever happened.
"This may be the worse decision I ever made in my life, only will time will tell. But I know in my heart what happened, and she's knows in her heart what happened," Marchant says. And I just felt like I needed to bring this out. Because I just know, 10 years from now, if I look at myself in the mirror -- 'Why didn't you say anything?' It's not a matter of, 'Why did you say something Larry. It's 'Why didn't you say?' We had several drinks, we went to dinner, we went to a couple bars, we were with a lot of people -- you know, it just happened. ... I know she was making some very, very strong statements about her relationship [with her husband] and it bothered me."
Marchant resigned Wednesday as a paid consultant to Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, another gubernatorial candidate.
