Vincent Sheheen on Nikki Haley: ‘We’re Gonna Escort Whore Out the Door’

BY:

South Carolina Democrat and 2014 gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen called Republican Governor Nikki Haley a “whore” with a smile, some laughs, and finger-pointing during an event in Florence, S.C., on Thursday.

“That is the worst kind of politics, and we’re gonna escort whore out the door,” Sheheen said. “We’re gonna escort her out the door.”

Sheheen quickly corrected himself, but began cackling after members of the crowd began laughing. He scanned the crowd for approval and apparently found some.

“Oh no, listen, you gotta tell the truth,” Sheheen said. “Think about it, we’ve got a governor who’s blocking 11 billion dollars of our own Medicaid tax money. That’s our money!”

The crowd was visibly riled up, and Sheheen seemed pleased with his “whore” comment, even if it was just a Freudian slip.
