The Progressive Puppy
Kristin Maguire is chair of the South Carolina State Board of Education. She's a religious conservative who promotes creationism and "abstinence only" sex education. And, the poor dear, she's just been caught writing hardcore pornographic stories online. So what's a smokin' hot mama to do? Well, she steps down from her post and cites "family difficulties" as the reason.
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... 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. (But not all of them.) 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.(Remainder.)
