South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admits he's been having an affair with a woman from Argentina — which is where he's been for the past week. This comes after days of speculation on the whereabouts of the Republican governor, ever since he went AWOL last Thursday.
Sanford's staff said Monday that he was hiking along the Appalachian Trail, where Sunday was nude hikers day. That's where he told his staff he might be going. I wonder if he knew it was nude hikers day. Probably not.
As late as yesterday, Sanford's wife told CNN she still hadn't heard from her husband. Sanford has four sons — and was away from his family over Father’s Day weekend… Charming man.
Sanford announced he's resigning as head of the Republican Governors Association. He was also once thought to be a contender for the 2012 presidential nomination. Governor Sanford is not what the Republican Party needs at this moment — or ever.
