Hardly a Shocker … Jenny Sanford, Wife of SC Governor Mark Sanford Leaving the Governor’s Mansion … Splittsville
This is hardly shocking news … Jenny and Mark Sanford splitting up.
Ever since embattled South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford made the fatal comments that he was “hiking the Appalachian Trail,” … then admitted his affair with an Argentinian woman. After Governor Sanford’s disastrous press conference following his admissions, one wonders how moving day did not take place sooner. Personally, I am shocked he is still governor of South Carolina.
Jenny Sanford, the wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, announced Friday morning that she and their sons will leave the governor’s mansion in Columbia and settle in the Charleston area, a split that comes after the couple tried for seven weeks to mend their marriage.
“I am so thankful for the overwhelming support and prayers we have received from people all across South Carolina. I am literally in awe of how blessed we are to have such love and support from family and friends, old and new.
It is with this support, and after much careful and prayerful consideration, that I have decided to move back to our home in Charleston with our sons for the upcoming school year. From there, we will work to continue the process of healing our family.
While we will be leaving Columbia, we will return often, and I will remain engaged in activities in my role as First Lady, acknowledging that my responsibilities to my family come first. Once again, when it comes to personal family matters like this, I respectfully ask that members of the media allow us to go on with our lives in peace.”
