Sanford's Political Future Derailed after Infidelity?

Ad Feedback

One day after admitting to an ongoing affair with a woman in Argentina, Gov. Mark Sanford has given no indication that he plans to resign. 

He has, however, scheduled another news conference for Friday morning.

Sanford has spoken out against other politician's affairs in the past.

"What the American public cares about is the issue of integrity and the issue of trust, because if they don't trust their law maker, they won't trust the laws that the lawmakers create," he said in 1997 about former President Bill Clinton's infidelity.

Sanford is a father of four and a outspoken Christian conservative.  He said he and his family have been working through the situation for the last five months.
Gary Simrill is a Republican South Carolina lawmaker and a close personal friend of the governor and his family.

"I'm disappointed in the responsibility that was basically shucked because while he was gone for six days," he said. "I think its premature for anyone to call on the governor to resign until he has had to talk to his wife and family."
