Other Than One Man’s Claim, What Evidence Exists of an Affair?

I have touched base and heard from a few folks who know South Carolina politics well and are familiar with the state’s most infamous former gubernatorial spokesman and blogger, Will Folks. (And no, none are related to me.) Neither one knows if his claim of an affair with gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley is true, but one claims to have heard about checks going to Folks to make the allegation, and the other is using words like “hoax” and “prank.”

It is intriguing that Folks wrote, “within the last forty-eight hours several pieces of information which purportedly document a prior physical relationship between myself and Rep. Haley have begun to be leaked slowly, piece by piece, to members of the mainstream media.  I am told that at least one story based upon this information will be published this week”; so far, as far as I can tell, no publication has come forward with any evidence documenting that physical relationship.
