The Sanford saga

Posted By on Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 1:10 PM

Sorry. It grows. He's blabbing to reporters. He admits that he's had  more trysts with the Argentinean firecracker than previously admitted. And there's this special touch:

Looks like Sanford attempted to end the relationship earlier this year (or at least, that's what he told his wife). After asking her several times, Sanford got permission from his wife to go to New York, meet his lover and end the affair in person. He took along a "trusted spiritual adviser" as a chaperone for an evening of church, dinner and no overnight stay.

Then came his hike on the Appalachian Trail. No spiritual advisor chaperoned.

And, oh yes, he "crossed the line" with other women, he says, but only "had sex" with one other than his wife. Crossed the line, eh? One has to wonder if this would be a reference to the fabled counseling from local Baptist preacher of high repute for his Biblical scholarship who said oral sex, by his reading of Scripture, did not constitute having sex.

Somebody needs to stick a sock in Sanford, sounds like.
