When the shit hits the political fan it really splats on the walls. The wife of South Carolina governor Mark Sanford sat down with the Associated Press to talk about his recent infidelity scandal and what she knew prior to it coming to light.
Jenny Sanford stated that her husband wanted to continue to see his lover even after she found out about it. She stated that her husband repeatedly asked her could he visit his lover.
"I said absolutely not. It's one thing to forgive adultery; it's another thing to condone it," Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press during a 20-minute interview at the coastal home where she sought refuge with their four sons. They were her first extended comments on the affair.So even after he got caught cheating, and even after his wife told him to leave this woman alone, he decides to sneak out of the country during Father's Day weekend to get his rocks off. Basically saying screw my wife and four sons, so I can go screw this chick in South America. This really leaves a bad taste in mouth about this man's character.
She said that when her husband, Gov. Mark Sanford, inexplicably disappeared last week, she hoped he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, as his staff told those who inquired about his absence. That he had dared to go to Argentina to see the other woman left her stunned.
"He was told in no uncertain terms not to see her," she said in a strong, steady voice. "I was hoping he was on the Appalachian Trail. But I was not worried about his safety. I was hoping he was doing some real soul searching somewhere and was devastated to find out it was Argentina. It's tragic."This interview along with his already known actions of infidelity has to put the final nail in his political coffin. I know conservatives want to get as far away from this guy as they possibly can.
