Mark Sanford, the South Carolina Governor who admitted to having an extramarital affair while in Argentina, held a press conference this afternoon addressing this matter. The governor who lied to his family and staff about visiting the Appalachian Trail while away, noted in the press conference “that ain’t where I went.”
He went on to apologizing to everyone in South Carolina and saying how remorseful he was about the incident. “I have been unfaithful to my wife, I have developed a relationship with what started as a dear, dear friend from Argentina… it began very innocently as I suspect these things do… just a casual email back and forth…”
I’m not even surprised to hear about politicians cheating on their wives anymore (see Nevada Senator John Ensign). It has gotten to the point where if you don’t cheat on your wife then you’re not a real politician. However, the real question here is will he remain the Governor of South Carolina?
