Does S.C. Paper Have The Goods On Sanford?

There’s a huge number of rumors floating around, so it’s worth being cautious. But a South Carolina political blogger who used to work for Governor Sanford is now reporting:

S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford is allegedly having an extramarital-affair, evidence of which may have been obtained prior to his mysterious trip to Argentina by at least one South Carolina news outlet, sources tell FITS.

The woman with whom Sanford is allegedly involved was reportedly with the governor on his recent trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina – a trip the governor appears to have lied about to his wife, his staff and his security detail.

Sources tell FITS that The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper is in possession of materials which may confirm the governor’s affair, although a source at the paper declined to comment on that report.

The blogger, Will Folks, had previously reported that the Sanfords had been having marital problems.

And we had reported other possible evidence that Sanford was not alone on his trip.

More in about twenty minutes when Sanford goes before the cameras.
