Mark Sanford: I’ll Lay It Out: It’s Gonna Hurt
Mark Sanford began by saying parts of the story of his disappearance are true; then he apologized to his family, referring to his children as “jewels.” Sanford then apologized to his staff and the people of his state. He talked of “laying the cards on the table” with his father-in law, and apologized to him, too. He said he was a person of faith and invoked God.
But what was he apologizing for? It took long enough to get to the bombshell: “I developed a relationship with a dear dear friend from Argentina.” The governor said he was “committed to walking through the process with Jenny and the boys,” but it’s not sure what that process would involve.
Sanford said he’d resign as chairman as the Republican Governor’s Association. Upon taking questions, he claimed his family knew about the affair before his trip to Argentina, that it’s something they’ve been working through for five months.
The relationship began innocently, he said, eight years ago, and a year ago he advised the woman with whom he was involved to get back with with her husband and two kids because that was “God’s law.” In fact, it was striking how often he mentioned God. He is now “trying to get my heart right.”Click here for reuse options!
