(CNN) - A second South Carolina newspaper is calling for Gov. Mark Sanford to resign.
The editorial Friday morning in the Orangeburg Times and Democrat comes two days after Sanford admitted to an extramarital affair with a woman from Argentina. The governor also acknowledged Wednesday that he did not tell his staff that he was in Argentina during a five-day period over the past week.
"Sanford should exit not because of his personal problems but because in dealing with those problems, he has shown clearly that he cannot be an effective leader. The entire episode vividly illustrates irresponsibility and poor judgment. He could not have handled the situation worse," the paper says in an editorial.
"Sanford decided Wednesday to step aside as leader of the Republican Governors Association. If he cannot be an effective leader of that organization, how can he expect to be effective as the state's chief executive? Sanford indicated Wednesday he will remain in office. He should not. Sanford indicated Wednesday he will remain in office. He should not."
On Thursday, the Spartanburg Herald-Journal became the first newspaper in South Carolina to call on Sanford to resign.
Sanford has not indicated any intention of stepping down.
