Forget the fact the little fucker howled for Clinton’s head, but won’t step down himself. Forget for a moment (but only for a moment) that he left his state unhelmed while he scampered to South America for a week of driving along his mistress’s coastline. All of that takes chutzpah. But it takes an absolute motherfucking asshole to cheat on his wife and then ask if he can do it some more:
Jenny Sanford opens up to the AP in an incredible, must-read interview about Mark Sanford and her repeated attempts to save their marriage.
SULLIVANS ISLAND, S.C. — South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford sat in her oceanfront living room Friday, recalling how her husband repeatedly asked permission to visit his lover in the months after she discovered his affair. [emphasis added]
“I said absolutely not. It’s one thing to forgive adultery; it’s another thing to condone it,” Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press during a 20-minute interview at the coastal home where she sought refuge with their four sons. They were her first extended comments on the affair.
…”He was told in no uncertain terms not to see her,” she said in a strong, steady voice. “I was hoping he was on the Appalachian Trail. But I was not worried about his safety. I was hoping he was doing some real soul searching somewhere and devastated to find out it was Argentina. It’s tragic.”
Remember that the next time they start spouting off about how they’re such awesome defenders of the sanctity of marriage and family values.
