Mark Sanford Asks For Forgiveness During Congressional Run: ‘I Absolutely Failed In My Personal Life’
Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is running for Congress, and says he failed in his personal life, but never failed the taxpayers.
“If we live long enough, we’re going to fail at something, and I absolutely failed in my personal life and in my marriage,” Sanford said in an interview on the “Today” show on Tuesday. “But one place I didn’t ever fail was with the taxpayers.”
However, the South Carolina Ethics Commission charged him with 37 violations for taking business class trips on the taxpayer dime.
