The Love Triangle in South Carolina

There's nothing new about a politician cheating on his wife, but the tale of South Carolina governor Mark Sanford has a different twist. Still presiding as the chief executive of the state, Sanford is treating us to the drama of an ongoing love triangle.

While the death of Michael Jackson may have distracted the media from Sanford's drama, the two women in his life are still making headlines. Shocked that her husband was continuing to see his mistress as recently as last week, Sanford's wife Jenny told the media that just like the public, she had no idea he was in Argentina. She said: "I was hoping he was doing some real soul searching somewhere and devastated to find out it was Argentina. It's tragic. . . . It's one thing to forgive adultery; it's another thing to condone it."

Meanwhile, the governor's "dear, dear friend" in Argentina has confirmed the affair. Maria Belen Chapur, a 41-year-old former reporter, released a statement yesterday saying that the media coverage "is of great pain to me, as for my two children, my family and all the great friends that I have known and harvested throughout my life and that had always been there for me."

When he gave his press conference last Wednesday, Mark Sanford seemed incapable of hiding his deep feelings for Maria. Do you think he should resign so he can sort out his personal problems? They've already caused him to lapse in his duties by leaving the country without telling anyone.
