Columbia – Lt. Governor André Bauer stepped up his attack on Nikki Haley today, insisting that not only should she take a lie detector test, but that all of her supporters do the same.
On Monday, Bauer announced that he had taken and passed his own lie detector test, saying afterward that it vindicates his claim that he was not involved in propagating allegations of Haley’s marital infidelity.
“I took that test and I passed it with flying colors,” said Bauer. “The results were as conclusive as can be. I sat down, the guy strapped me in, and then he asked me the questions we’d provided to him. I answered ‘no!’ to all of the questions and the machine verified that I was not lying.”
“Now,” Bauer continued, “I expect Mrs. Haley and her supporters to follow suit. I will have volunteers at hundreds of key polling places tomorrow and they will be encouraging any and all supporters of Mrs. Haley to participate in a very brief test.”
Bauer’s campaign released a copy of the questions they would like to ask of Haley supporters:
• “Did you ever personally engage in sexual relations with Nikki Haley or witness someone else engaging in sexual relations with Nikki Haley?”
• “Did you know that André Bauer was not involved in any of the possibly dozens of extra-marital affairs Nikki Haley is accused of engaging in?”
• “Would it affect your vote if you saw absolute proof of Haley’s infidelity in the form of a high-quality video that clearly shows her performing lewd acts with a man who is not her husband?”
• “Would it affect your vote if you knew that Nikki Haley was secretly not a Christian and has a covert religious agenda she intends to impose on our great state of South Carolina once she’s elected governor?”
The questions Bauer answered during the course of his lie detector test weren’t provided to the press.
