The DNC, the political wing of a president who launched his campaign decrying slash-and-burn campaign tactics, is highlighting new stories about a sex scandal rocking a GOP primary.
Earlier today, the DNC sent around a report from WSPA, the Spartanburg, SC, CBS affiliate, in which SC blogger Will Folks says SC state Rep. Nikki Haley’s (R) campaign asked him to deny an affair.
The report followed revelations of a series of text messages between Folks, who claims he had an affair with Haley several years ago, and Haley’s campaign manager.
