Making his first public appearance since his announcement of an extramarital affair, Governor Mark Sanford stopped by the Department of Motor Vehicles office in Greer Tuesday to voice his concerns over the PASS ID law. As expected, the affair was the hot topic of discussion, and Sanford said its time to move on.
“I made a mistake in life. I have apologized for that mistake. I’ve said all I’m gonna say on that one, and I’m moving forward. I think the people of South Carolina are ready to do the same,” says Sanford, “this has been painful, it’s been what it is. But it is time to move on and that is what I intend to do and that’s what I hear from a lot of people across South Carolina.”
The governor received several rounds of applause from his Republican supporters. He said he’s currently working to repair his relationship with his wife, Jenny, and he is planning more trips with his family.
