Fox News is reporting that South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford claims that his Argentinian mistress “is his soul mate” but that he’s not ready to give up on his marriage yet.
“This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story,” Fox quotes Sanford in referring to his South American lover. But, in referring to his marriage, Fox says that Sanford said “he’s trying to fall back in love with his wife.”
South Carolina voters are wise to be questioning Sanford’s ability to stay in office. What he’s doing here between these two women shows a lack of character with them; so much less regard he would show to the voters.
