Knotts explains slur: “I may have slept with Nikki Haley”

by William Moultrie

Columbia –
Senator Jake Knotts (R-Lexington), who referred to both President Obama and gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley as ‘ragheads’ on Wednesday, attempted to explain his comments in a statement today.


Sen. Jake Knotts

Reading from a prepared statement, Knotts said:

“I deeply regret my comments referring to Mrs. Haley. I have been under enormous stress lately as it has been brought to my attention that I may have had an inappropriate physical relationship with her. I have no recollection of such a relationship, but a very close friend of mine who is also running for governor has strongly implied that it would be great if I came forward and revealed my indiscretions with Mrs. Haley. I won’t reveal who that associate is, but I would bet my reputation that he would not lie to me, so if he says I slept with Mrs. Haley, then I must have.

Additionally, I have been informed that it is not appropriate to refer to Mrs. Haley as a raghead and for that I apologize. Apparently it’s predominantly a term used to refer to Arabs, and while I say that’s close enough,  I’m willing to concede that may not have been a proper use of the term. However, I stand by my use of it describing the president.

I won’t be taking any questions, but I would like to remind everyone that Tuesday is primary day, and if you’re like me, you’ll be voting for André Bauer. Thank you.

When contacted, a spokesman for the Haley campaign said they had no comment, though giggles and what appeared to be the sound of high-fives could be heard in the background.

    Jake, You are one ugly, fat, donut eating ex-cop. You and Joe Wilson are the biggest embarrassments SC has EVER had, surpassing Strom Thurmond and Mark Sanford. Are you one of the 50% of students in SC that did not graduate from High School? You are a racist in the worst way. Are you flying a confederate flag on your pick-up truck? Scared to do that huh? Mister BiG Guy (pun intended). And the rest of the people in the USA wonder why SC is still a red state !!! Does ingnorance ring a bell????

    He can’t really help it, you know. I imagine that he was indoctrinated into all that by his father, who I understand was a pretty footloose and brutal kind of guy. I don’t think his father is still beating his mother, but she must have been pretty weak and anti-American, a typical anti-Christian South Carolinian who lived in fear of her drunken old man and her son. Poor Jake grew up in all this. Small wonder I heard he became a particularly brutal cop. I don’t know if he’s still beating his wife, but he’s one scary dude coming out of the gin mill every night. I understand his teachers were worried about the way he tortured small animals, and jerked off in church.

    mrgoodbar, I refer you to the following statement: When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    So to understand you, this was the right thing to do in 1776 but is sedition in 1861. I guess it depends on whose ox is being gored.

    Jakie, living proof that some folks will runs as RINOs just to get elected… I guess Gary McLeod could have used the spoptlight grabbing mouth in years gone by.

    I guess both Republican and Democratic white people in South Carolina are racist and sexist. Frankly, Democrats should be condemning these type of tactics. A woman is running for office and every Tom, Dick and Harry claims they slept with her to bring her down.

    Frankly I have seen better politics in Zimbabwe.

  7. anthony wrifford says:

    Damn. I hate those one night stands when you gets so drunk you can’t remember what you did, let alone with whom.

    Naw…I never did that. But I know people who have. Sickening isn’t it? The people I knew were all in their early 20′s in college a long time ago.

  8. Robin Huud says:

    Typical Jake; How do you expect a man to govern and act sane when he can’t even control his appetite. Heres a dollar, Jake, go buy a twinkie, you fat ignorant backwoods bigoted hack. You better hope the people of Lexington county to stay backward and ignorant so you can get reelected.

  9. mrgoodbar says:

    The reality is that he is just saying what a lot of people are thinking. The GOP dirty fixers have been attacking her faith (Christian, or something else?), her sexuality, and her race. Bauer’s people refer to her by her birthname in the same way that people emphasized the “Hussein” in Obama’s name…

    And what do you expect? This IS South Carolina, after all. A state where 50% of the people don’t make it out of high school. A state that proudly flies the confederate flag, the war banner of a pro-slavery and seditious nation under which the enemies of the United States marched.

  10. D-Con & Raid says:

    Jake Knotts is no only jealous that he did not sleep with Nikki, he is an fat, ugly cockroach and as such, he will not go away or melt easily. Only one thing get’s rid of cockroaches like Jake….it’s called RAID!

  11. Ron Saxton says:

    Mr. Knots is a hemorrhoid on the SC Republican Party.

  12. Seth says:

    Jack Knotts is an i-d-i-o-t.
