In a move that left many attendees visibly surprised, South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace made some candid remarks at a recent prayer breakfast, blaming her tardiness on her fiancé’s early morning “advances.” The Republican representative was addressing a packed room at the annual faith-centered gathering when she gave the audience a little ‘TMI’ about her personal life.
“I woke up this morning at 7, I was getting picked up at 7:45. Patrick, my fiancé, tried to pull me by my waist over this morning in bed,” Mace narrated, adding, “I was like, ‘no baby, we don’t got time for that this morning. I gotta get to the prayer breakfast, and I gotta be on time.'”
The reaction in the room became awkward as Mace continued, “I know he can wait… I’ll see him later tonight.”

Mace seemed unconcerned by the prospect of sharing such information with a room full of religious and GOP leaders at a Tim Scott-sanctioned event.
While it’s usual for participants to discuss personal and spiritual matters at these types of events, Mace’s disclosure undoubtedly pushed the boundaries of a typical conversation, to say the least.
Honestly props to Nancy Mace. Can't imagine the self discipline it took to choose Tim Scott over sex.

Not married but in bed with someone, and talking about having sex at a Prayer breakfast, you can’t be serious?

She's going to criticize people for making a big "woop" out of it… but its weird… it wasn't appropriate, we didn't need to hear it.
