Somebody needs to sit Mark Sanford down and explain the difference between trying to reconcile with one's wife and utterly humiliating one's wife.
Because if Sanford really is trying to salvage his marriage, he's going about it all wrong.
The governor says he "never crossed the ultimate line" with anyone but Maria Belen Chapur, the Argentine at the center of a scandal that has derailed Sanford's once-promising political career.I wonder, did Sanford think he was speaking off the record? Because if he knew he was being quoted, he is either the biggest moron or the most soulless scumbag I've ever heard of.
During an emotional interview at his Statehouse office with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sanford said Chapur is his soul mate but he's trying to fall back in love with his wife.
He says that during the other encounters he "let his guard down" with some physical contact but "didn't cross the sex line." He wouldn't go into detail.
Sanford said the casual encounters happened outside the U.S. while he was married but before he met Chapur.
