SC-GOV: Sanford admits having an affair in Argentina

The dirtbag comes clean:

Via CNN:
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday, amid speculation over his whereabouts for the last several days, that he has been engaged in an extramarital affair with an Argentinian woman.
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford chokes up on Wednesday as he admits to having an affair.

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford chokes up on Wednesday as he admits to having an affair.

"I've been unfaithful to my wife," Sanford told a news conference in Columbia, the state capital. "I developed a relationship with what started as a dear, dear friend from Argentina."

His voice choking at times, Sanford apologized to his wife and four sons, his staff and supporters, and said he would resign immediately as head of the Republican Governors Association. The affair was discovered five months ago, Sanford said.

The South Carolina governor had not been seen in public since June 18. When questioned, Sanford's staff had told media outlets that he was hiking in the Appalachian Trail. But Sanford was spotted Wednesday in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The South Carolina governor said he had been in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He said it was his fault for "shrouding this larger trip."

"I'm a bottom-line kind of guy. I'll lay it out, it's going to hurt, and we'll let the chips fall as they may," Sanford said as he spoke with reporters.

Sanford said his affair began as a friendship, but "over this last year, it developed into something much more than that."


I am completely apalled at the sheer ignorance of politicians across the board. Regardless of how long this affair was going on, after he no doubt saw another high profile politician, Nevada Senator John Ensign, admit to an affair, this dirtbag Mark Sanford appears to have not even thought twice about sneaking over to Argentina to visit his other lover. What on earth goes through these people’s minds? Are there any honorable politicians left in this country?

Your thoughts.
