Updated with video of the press conference belowSanford cheated on his wife. He didn't just go to Argentina for an "exotic" vacation.
In a press conference, where he nearly broke down, he apologized to his wife and four boys.
Why is it always these conservatives, busy preaching to everyone what's moral and right, who do these lousy, unfaithful things. I feel for his wife and children.
He's got no business talking about "God's law." Don't these fellows see the hypocrisy of their actions.
He met this person "very innocently" a few years ago and they developed a "remarkable" friendship that sparked. She's married with two children.
"This was selfishness on my part," he said.
He said he was resigning as chairman of the Republican Governors' Association. (Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is taking over).
It's doubtful he would've told if he didn't get caught.
He walked out of the press conference. He was getting all blubbery.
My bet--he'll be resigning as governor. You can't just leave your post as governor, amid a flurry of lies, to go get some in another country. It seems South Carolina has a lot of troubles and is in need of serious leadership, not a guy in pursuit.
He seemed somewhat of a basket case and in need of mental health counseling, so it's a good thing he has insurance.
Read all about it.
