Haley: I Will Resign If Affair Claims Are Validated (AUDIO)

During a radio interview Thursday afternoon Nikki Haley said she will resign if she is elected governor and the claims that she had extramarital affairs are proven to be true.

Keven Cohen of Columbia’s WVOC, a mostly friendly interviewer, put the question to Haley in stark terms. Here’s the exchange:

Cohen: “If something comes out after you win the primary, or after you win the general election become South Carolina’s next governor, if something were to come out that validates the claims that have been made against you — in terms of stepping out on your husband and on your marriage — would you resign as governor because basically the way you’ve handled it has been an absolute, 100 percent denial? Would you resign or would it be dragged out?

Haley: “Yes.”

Cohen: “Yes you would resign?”

Haley: “Yes.”

One to file away for future reference.
