Mark Sanford’s office today said that the governor will not say anything more about his contact with a woman in Argentina. A report from Associated Press says the governor is no longer willing to release personal financial records proving that he did not use state money for trips to see his mistress. A reporter says that Sanford agreed this week to provide proof of his payment for trips to New York and Argentina to see her.
Meanwhile, the majority of state Senate Republicans are calling for Sanford’s resignation.
And U.S. Senator Jim Demint is asking for Sanford to “do the right thing.” “I’m concerned that he’s no longer in a position to lead the state,” said Demint. “A number of us are talking to him quietly and we hope it can be resolved.”
