Sanford: I Had an Affair

Don't go to Mark Sanford with your questions about the Argentinian coastline: Turns out that he went to Buenos Aires not for the views, as he originally claimed, but instead for a fling with an Argentinian woman. It began, he said, with emailing and developed over the past year into a sexual relationship. "I've let down a lot of people," Sanford said, and he called his press conference "the first step in a very long process." He also resigned as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
