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.

Here’s the audio:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
