SC Gov. Mark Sanford says he's had an affair-Yahoo! News


COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he's been having an affair and will resign as head of the Republican Governor's Association.

The married father of four emotionally apologized to his wife, staff and others after returning Wednesday from a trip to Argentina that followed a dayslong absence. He staff had said the Republican was hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

He had been a rumored contender for the 2012 GOP ticket. A former congressman, he's most recently snared headlines for his unsuccessful fight to turn aside federal stimulus cash for his state's schools.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

SC gov resurfaces after mystery trip to Argentina - Yahoo! News

Once again I must say WHY?  Dems just see these as resume enhancing events.  Oh well.  Now the Dems are saying this ruins his chances of a 2012 campaign.  Really?  Ruins?  Slick Willie had his affair IN the oval orifice and it didn’t hurt him too much in the long run…  The story goes on to say that he was in Argentina earlier as part of an Economic Development trip. 

He declined to give any additional details about what he did other than to say he was alone and that he drove along the coastline.

Trying to drive along the coast could frustrate a weekend visitor to Argentina. In Buenos Aires, the Avenida Costanera is the only coastal road, and it's less than two miles long. Reaching coastal resorts to the south requires a drive of nearly four hours on an inland highway with views of endless cattle ranches. To the north is a river delta of islands reached only by boat

This supports my hypothesis perfectly…

A spokesman for Argentina's immigration agency wouldn't comment Wednesday on whether Sanford entered the country, citing privacy laws.

Sanford was in Argentina a year ago as part of an economic development trip to South America.

In more recent months, he was rumored as a potential presidential contender in 2012. His critics brushed that aside Wednesday.

"Unless he runs for president of Argentina, I think he has no chance of becoming president. The rest of the country wouldn't have taken him seriously anyway," said Dick Harpootlian, a former South Carolina Democratic Party chairman who rapped Sanford for "apparently taking off to run away from home like some hormone-infused adolescent."

What an ass this guy is!
