SOUTH CAROLINA: Jenny Sanford's divorce updates

USA Today is reporting that South Carolina’s first lady Jenny Sanford has filed for divorce from her husband Mark Sanford following her appearance on Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009. In her papers which were filed today in Charleston County Family Court, she allegedly accuses the governor of having sex with another woman – an Argentine named Maria Belen Chapur.
Jenny and Mark Sanford have four young sons and both have indicated they want to keep things amicable for their sake. The governor and his paramour were outed back in June when he secretly flew to Argentina to be with her after telling Jenny he was trekking in the mountains somewhere near the Carolinas solo. In August, Jenny moved out of the governor’s mansion and into a home they own on Sullivan Island, South Carolina. She indicated in her press release that she attempted to reconcile and patch things up with her husband in spite of the Argentina situation, but things, evidently, were not meant to be, so the two have decided to go their own separate ways.
Always sad. Especially at this time of year.
No word yet whether the governor and Maria are still an item. Stay tuned. Oh, and check out what we said about this on YOUTUBE:
