The Sanford Affair: South Carolina's Reaction

Thursday, June 25, 2009

It was the Case of the Missing Governor. After a seven-day disappearance, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford resurfaced with news that he had been in Argentina (not hiking the Appalachian Trail as his staff reported). At first he claimed he needed to “recharge” somewhere “exotic,” but at a press conference yesterday, he admitted to having an affair with a woman in Argentina. For more of the story The Takeaway turns to Yvonne Wenger, a reporter for the South Carolina Post & Courier who has been following this story.

To see Governor Sanford's comments on the affair, watch the video below.
