Dailymail.com was barred from attending Nikki Haley’s voter meet-and-greet in New Hampshire on Friday morning and has also been prohibited from covering any of her upcoming campaign events.
This decision followed the publication of an exclusive story by DailyMail.com that morning, revealing Haley’s alleged false denial of infidelity accusations during her 2010 South Carolina gubernatorial campaign.
Despite providing a 24-hour window for the Haley campaign to respond, there was no comment from them on the story.
During Friday morning’s gathering at Mary Ann’s Diner in Amherst, New Hampshire, a DailyMail.com reporter and photographer were requested to leave the public restaurant where former South Carolina governor Haley was engaging with voters.
‘Daily Mail is not credentialed for any more events. I’m politely asking you to leave,’ Haley spokeswoman Chaney Denton said and pointed to the door.
Asked if this was in effect for the rest of the campaign, Denton answered ‘yes.’
Denton later told an editor at DailyMail.com that the publication was banned for ‘printing lies.’
On Friday, Dailymail.com published a report detailing accusations of extramarital affairs that Haley refuted. According to the publication, fresh witnesses have now emerged, disputing Haley’s denial of two alleged affairs in 2008 and asserting that the liaisons were openly known among South Carolina political circles.
Will Folks, 49, and Larry Marchant, aged 61, both signed affidavits in 2010 that claimed that they engaged in sexual relationships with Haley when she was a South Carolina lawmaker, prior to her subsequent tenure as governor.
At the time, Haley, now 51, vehemently rejected both claims, asserting her unwavering fidelity to her husband of 28 years, Michael Haley, and the father of her two children. She maintained her stance even as Michael was deployed to Afghanistan with the National Guard in 2012.
Haley often attributes her decision to run for president to her husband, highlighting him prominently in her latest campaign advertisement. The ad begins by showcasing images of Michael’s return home in 2013 after completing his initial deployment to Afghanistan with the National Guard.
