South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford

Sanford meets the press today and drops a huge bombshell.

After 5 days of the Governor’s absence and questioning who is in charge, Governor Mark Sanford announced he was in Argentina for the past few days and that he had been having an affair with an Argentine woman for the last year.

We will definitely be thinking of his family and the steps they will be taking to move forward during these tough times.

Sanford announced his resignation from the Republican Governor’s Association and was asked if he would be resigning as Governor of SC.  Sanford spokesman responded with a no.

There are rumors afloat that there may be moves in the State House to impeach Sanford.  Their issue is that he has been out of the country and did not provide a means for the legislature or leadership to contact him in case of an emergency.

Over the past several years, there has been a movement to get more fiscally conservative individuals into positions of power in the state.  That is individuals with ideologies similar to Mark Sanford.  How will those candidates now be portrayed.  Is this the needed event to allow the blue wave to continue into South Carolina?

Conservatism in South Carolina may have taken a huge blow, I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
