Children between 3 and 8 who were hospitalized during the past year were invited to the event at the Governor's Mansion.

Her divorce from Gov. Mark Sanford became final last week.

Sanford told The Associated Press that the first lady position is voluntary and she will, as appropriate, continue some of the traditions she had as first lady.

Governor's spokesman Ben Fox said the egg hunt is a tradition both the governor and his former wife felt was important to continue. The governor did not attend.

The Sanfords divorced after the governor disappeared last summer and returned to reveal he had an affair with an Argentine woman.

I agree! Too bad we can't

I agree! Too bad we can't have elected officials of her caliber. Perhaps by it's very nature politics is laden with dogs, and we all know when you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
