South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has admitted to having an affair. This news comes as a surprise because is he the closest living incarnate of Andy Taylor anybody has ever seen. It also comes on the heels of a “Where is Waldo” like search for the Governor. No one seemed to know where he was.
Some said they saw him at the Atlanta airport, some say they saw him in Greenville but his staff said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. Which, coincidentally was the same weekend as Nude Hiking Day.
Now we know he was having an affair in South America. Or maybe ending the affair. Who knows. What we do know is that this is way worse than what was being speculated.
It would honestly be better if he had been “nude hiking” instead of being on the nude trail he was on.
You could twist this to being a good thing and say, “Hey, at least South Carolinians aren’t the only ones getting screwed by the Governor,” but even that was outsourced overseas.
Well, congrats, fellow South Carolinians. Now this can be added to the list of Embarrassing Things about South Carolina.
It would rank somewhere between trying to secede from the Union and losing “the Peach State” moniker to Georgia but maybe not as high as Edwin McCain.
