    In a stunning confession, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday to being "unfaithful" to his wife during a press conference meant to clear up 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 that country.

    "It began very innocently as I suspect they usually do ... Over this year (it) developed into something much more than that," he said.

    The governor "apologized" profusely to his family, his staff and the people of South Carolina. He said he's let down his four sons in a "profound way," though he said his wife Jenny had known about the affair for five months and they were trying to work through it.

    He said he is resigning as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

    The first-hand account Wednesday was meant to settle mounting questions over the governor's week-long disappearance.

    His staff first claimed the governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail a few hours away from the state capital. But confusion intensified Wednesday morning after The State newspaper reported that Sanford had just returned from Argentina.

    It became clear early in his press conference that Sanford would reveal something much more personal surrounding his trip, as he repeatedly made reference to his family and apologized for his behavior.

    and another one bites the dust. At least we know how to handle these types unlike the Dems. If he was a member of the other party it would have been considered a resume enhancer especially if she was hot.

    well in all fairness, when you cry foul at every opportunity, are you right or just crying foul at every opportunity?

    Sorry guys, but this one just REEKED fishiness. There's no way this could have been anything else.

    Taking off with a state vehicle and no state protection, no transfer of powers to Lt. Gov, lying to your staff about your whereabouts, and no one else but your Chief of Staff knowing where you are? That just screams "I'm doing something I'm not supposed to be doing". It wasn't hard to "guess" at this one.

    No kidding. He was bound to be right eventually, like the guy who plays "black 22" at roulette.

    Well, no. It figures that it gets brushed under the rug when it's an (R). But when it has to do with (D) the proverbial "Slick Willie" jokes come out. I just like how you 'Republicans' work, morally. :)

    Oh please. Don't get your panties all bunched up. At least it doesn't take an act of congress to get the truth out w/ these Republican adulterers.

    We at least save tax payer money by doing it this way.

    :p:

    I'll have you know I'm not wearing any panties, and it's the principles that tend to be sort of wishy-washy and seemingly flip-flop with you guys.

    I like that. . . . :)
