Oh PUH LEEEEEZ (Governor Mark Sanford) UPDATED

Why not just let them have three or four wives? I'm sure we could find the understanding women. He says his wife has known about it for five months. She's complicit. These politicians need the outlet.
Fox News - "Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted (today) to being 'unfaithful' to his wife during a press conference meant to account for his mysterious week-long absence.

'I've let down a lot of people. That's the bottom line,' he said. 'I've been unfaithful to my wife.'

Sanford, who just returned from Argentina, said he developed a 'relationship with what started out as a dear, dear friend from Argentina.'

The governor 'apologized' profusely to his family, his staff and the people of South Carolina.

The first-hand account was meant to settle mounting questions over the governor's whereabouts.

Confusion only intensified Wednesday morning after The State newspaper reported that Sanford had just returned from Argentina, even though his staff claimed the disappearing governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail a few hours away from the state capital."
Frankly, I don't know what we're fooling ourselves about. You show me one couple who has stayed chaste during their courtship, married, had sex after marriage, never had sex with others before their marriage, and stayed faithful to one another throughout their marriage and never divorced and lasted 30 some odd years or more.

Yes, I know you'll find them and I'll find 19 others that didn't do that, at least. Who are we fooling? We are not MONOGAMOUS. The affair has been going on since last year. He's involved a lot of people in his deception. He probably only admitted it because he was about to be outed.

More here: The New York Times and The Buenos Aires Herald.

PS and UPDATE at 6:00 PM EST. I think it will be eventually admitted that the Governor is Bipolar. He sure is acting like he is, BTW, her name is "María Belén Chapur." Since María has worked as a "journalist," I'm sure it was "professional courtesy" that prevented her being named originally. If it were a member of my family, I'm pretty sure they would have just named her right away and put her picture out there.

What ever happened to that time-honored tradition of having the state troopers pick up women for the governor?

What's it cost (in financial, not career/social terms) to travel to Argentina?

Are there no good-looking hookers in South Carolina?

Was Eliot Spitzer's over-priced whore not available?
