Gov. Sanford’s Evangelical Porn Queen State Education Board Chairman?

01 Sep

Fresh from a dalliance with the Argentine Firecracker, it would seem Governor Mark Sanford was on safer ground appointing a “devout” evangelical conservative to the State Board of Education to make sure the kiddies receive a proper, morally upstanding education…

Which we would assume would include 7 or 8 of the 10 Commandments the Governor hasn’t been found to have broken… Yet.

Never mind the fact that the “devout” evangelical in question doesn’t have any children who actually attend the School System, because they have chosen to “home school” them. I mean, isn’t that sort of like a race car driver who never passed the driving test to get a license to drive on the highway?

Eternal right-wing paradoxes and hypocrisy aside, it appears that the new “devout” evangelical, home schooling conservative appointee as Chair of the South Carolina Education Board, and long term member of Gov Sanford’s staff, was using at least one of the three “r’s”…

As an online porn queen.

Kristin Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolina’s most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governor’s closest education policy advisors for years.  She’s also Sanford’s appointment to the S.C. Board of Education, which last year elected her its Chairwoman.

What else is she?

The prolific author of hardcore erotic fiction on the Internet, according to documents provided to the governor’s office earlier this summer and later obtained by FITS.

Maguire, a professed Christian who home-schools her four children, declined to comment for our story but did not deny that she had previously frequented websites that feature such X-rated material.  Maguire believes that a former friend is leaking the information to the media in an effort to ruin her political career.

As for the specific writings alleged to have flowed from Maguire’s pen, most have been deleted from the Internet.

FITS was able to use conversations in various Internet chat rooms, however, to link at least two “erotic stories” to Maguire’s alleged pen name, “Bridget Keeney.”  From there, numerous similarities between “Bridget” and Maguire emerged, including commonalities in age, geographic location, engineering background, hobbies (knitting, for example) and number of children.  One comment left in an erotic chat room by “Bridget” even reveals the name of a professor who was at Clemson University’s College of Engineering at the time when Maguire was a student there, while another comment references a specific medical procedure that Maguire underwent several years ago.

Confronted with these numerous identifying markers, Maguire spoke to FITS of difficult times in her life and acknowledged that she had visited certain websites where such material was posted and reviewed.  She did not admit to authoring erotic fiction, however.

A source familiar with Sanford’s response to receiving this information tells a different story, however.  This source says that Maguire emphatically denied that the writing samples were hers, and that she and the governor’s chief of staff, Scott English, immediately set about to ensure that none of the material remained on the Internet.

None of the writings attributed to Maguire are illegal, obviously, and none of them coincide with her tenure as Chairwoman of the State Board.  But they do coincide with her extensive interaction with the Governor’s Office during Sanford’s first term…

How “involved”? Allegedly –

That part of Maguire’s life is now facing intense scrutiny – especially in light of the way Sanford’s office appears to have helped put a lid on the information being leaked about Maguire.

For example, several sources have related to FITS an incident involving Maguire and Scott English at a Columbia area bar at the end of the 2004 legislative session.

“She was giving him a lap dance,” says a witness at the bar. “There’s no other way to describe it.”

Another former Sanford staffer tells FITS that Maguire once unbuttoned her blouse and hiked up her skirt in front of him to show off her see-thru, light blue underwear.  This incident allegedly occurred not at a bar, but inside the governor’s office – at the unoccupied desk of First Lady Jenny Sanford, no less.

Hmmm…. Didn’t some of the very same Republicans impeach a President for uhhhh…. “Diddling on the desk”?

Maguire’s involvement in S.C. politics goes well beyond her leadership of the S.C. Board of Education or her involvement with the Sanford administration.  She is an executive committeewoman of the S.C. Republican Party, as well as the woman responsible for drafting the party’s education platform.

Prior to being elected Chairwoman, Maguire led the panel responsible for approving education standards taught in South Carolina classrooms, including what textbooks were to be used and how teachers were to be certified.  She has been a strong supporter of “abstinence only” sex education, as well.

When Maguire was elected to lead the S.C. Board, her appointment was hailed as a victory for social conservatives and feted on Christian blogs and websites across the Southeast.

Must of been some pretty kinky parties…

In any event, these “revelations”, and the appearance of additional material on the Internet which the Governor’s office missed scrubbing, have led to a quick resignation by Mrs. MaGuire – who, with no King David and Bathsheba biblical precedent covering porn to fall back on…

Had the smarts to leave town.

    Ah excuse me:

    Has she ever promoted bringing cucumbers to school to allow the students to practice putting condoms upon them – instead of taking AP Calculus?

    With nearby Baltimore and DC being the HIV hotspots in the nation it seems that you should be inspecting the sexual backgrounds of THEIR administrators.

    But then again this would be to assume that you cared anything more than aggregating Democratic power.

    Never mind. Carry on.

      I can see you flunked that AP course in Geography, Porche’. Indeed, calling South Carolina “close” to DC and Maryland…

      You didn’t even make it out of the 4th grade…

      On your third try.
