Mark Sanford is an amateur erotic author compared to the Secretary of Education he appointed!
Edited on Mon Aug-31-09 04:01 PM by Are_grits_groceries
Bridgett Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolinas most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governors closest education policy advisor's for years. Shes also Sanfords 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 governors 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.

FITS was able to use conversations in various Internet chat rooms, however, to link at least two erotic stories to Maguires 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 Universitys 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.

(Much more to the story at the site plus links to her alleged work)

Is our children learning?? Uh huh. It's just NSFW.

It wasn't a Governor's office. It was a "private club."

1. Erotic stories aside. She was the SC BoE's Chairwoman...who homeschools her kids.
Jesus I hate these people.

4. Man. It's not even decent erotica
So she likes sex. Lots of people do. I know it's a big deal for the pious little penis-pinchers over in the Christian right, but.. .Really? I don't give a duck. Except that she's a mediocre writer. THAT'S what's unforgivable here.

It's no good without pictures!





"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 governors office at the unoccupied desk of First Lady Jenny Sanford, no less."

6. I've said it before and I will say it again.
The more hardcore these reich wingers are the more likely they have some serious skeletons in the closet that they are trying to compensate for. It has been proven over and over again.

7. It's been taking them a while to read the entire Bible.
They just got to "Song of Solomon." Either that or they just now got the meaning.

8. Are you quoting from a reliable website? If not you should get rid of your post.
You may be repeating horrible lies about a person. This story does not sound believable at all.

10. She resigned her position today
after the story broke.

FITS news has been right about the Sanford scandals. He worked for Sanford and has many contacts in SC government. It is as reliable as anything else I have read in this state.

As for believable?? What if I told you the story about a RW Governor who was a possible candidate for president with a wife and 4 sons. Suddenly he can't be found and nobody in the state knows where he is. They say he is hiking the Appalachian Trail. It turns out he was in Argentina with his mistress breaking off the affair that his wife and spiritual adviser Cubby knew all about. Sounds far fetched huh?

11. Many of my colleagues write erotica
The hottest-selling sub-genres in romance are erotica and inspirationals. Go figure.

Ms. Maguire is free to write whatever she wants. Obviously, the fact that she writes erotica in the midst of the Bible Belt is fairly interesting, but she's an adult, it's her right.

I am a romance author. I write under a pseudonym. I do not write erotica, but frankly, any author in this industry risks having his or her work dug up and mocked. I'm not ashamed of what I do, but there are family members who do not approve. That's their problem.

15. Nothing wrong with erotica, but it's not what you expect from an abstinence advocate
http://www.wmbfnews.com/global/story.asp?s=11021317
Says she's co-founder of a group that promotes (among other things) abstinence and creationism (surprise)). I think that would be this group: http://www.scpie.org /

I'm totally down with her writing wahtever she wants to, publishing it, and even abandoning it later if her views have changed. But let's face it, we're sitting here going 'LOL, what a hypocrite' - if the parties were reversed GOPers would probably be screaming 'DEMON SEED! Porno Perverts after our Kids! Lock her up!' etc.

17. She is, er, was a home-schooling SC Board of Ed chairwoman. That's like being the self-processed
atheist who's also a Roman Catholic bishop.

23. Who is # 1

They call US the purveyors of filth in the modern culture. But is there one GOP/rightwad/Professional Scold who HASN'T written a naughty book? Gingrich, Liz Cheney, O'Reilly, Scooter Libby --what is it about being a rightwad that makes you want to write unintentionally hilarious trash?
