Sanford Says He Didn’t Tell The Truth When He Said He Was Telling Us The Truth
South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford now says there were more trysts with his Argentine lover than he previously disclosed.
In a lengthy, emotional interview with The Associated Press, the governor described seven meetings with the woman, including their first in 2001. Sanford says there have been five over a 12-month period, including two multi-night stays with her in New York.
It was the first disclosure of any get-togethers with her in the United States and contradicted a public confession last week during which he admitted to a total of four encounters in the past year.
Sanford, who made a big deal about not taking stimulus money because he’s such a good guardian of the state’s finances, now says he’ll pay back the state for a 2008 trip to Brazil and Argentina taken on the government dime. He says no other liaison used government money.Click here for reuse options!
