Runaway Governor

Calls Increase for Sanford's Resignation

He may not have gone to the Appalachian Trail, but is South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford about to take a hike anyway? 14 of the 27 Republican state senators in South Carolina have called for Sanford's resignation, including the majority leader and the senate president. United States Senator Jim Demint also said that "A lot of us are talking to [Sanford] behind the scenes." Sanford admitted on Tuesday to having more trysts with his mistress, Maria Belen Chapur, than he had previously acknowledged.
