South Carolina has all the fun. First there was Strom Thurmond. And the Appalachian Trail. And Lyin' Joe Wilson. Now a leading female Republican candidate for governor is said, according to a political blogger, to have had an adulterous affair with him when he was single.
Arkansas angle: The blogger, a Republican, has roughed up Arkansas lottery boss Ernie P., a Democrat and former South Carolinian, and the South Carolina lottery a time or three.
