(Newser) – Nikki Haley's situation just got a little stickier: There is apparently a photo floating around of the would-be gov and Will Folks in a “compromising position.” Folks revealed this little tidbit yesterday; ironically, he knows about the photograph because in early 2009 someone (who hired a private investigator to take it) attempted to blackmail him with it. Haley allegedly knew about it, too, because at the time Folks supposedly emailed her: “I pray you escape all this." Haley supposedly replied, "Stay strong. Have faith. I’m sorry for any pain you are having to go through. You will be OK and better for it."

The latest dirt from Folks’ FITSnews also includes claims that numerous witnesses often saw Haley’s white Cadillac SUV parked outside Folks’ home late at night. Folks, who is compiling all his evidence of the affair, claims that the existence of a photo (and there may be more than one) had a lot to do with his decision to address the story. Meanwhile, Haley will finally address the allegations next week, reports the Huffington Post.
