COLUMBIA — At least six South Carolina newspapers, including the Aiken Standard, say Gov. Mark Sanford should resign because of revelations about his affair with a woman in Argentina.

The Greenville News, The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg, The Herald of Rock Hill, the Morning News of Florence, the Standard and The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg all called on Sanford to resign.

Sanford told The Associated Press Tuesday that he had more encounters than previously disclosed with his Argentine "soul mate" and had dalliances with women earlier.

Spartanburg and Orangeburg newspapers had called earlier for Sanford to quit. Spartanburg said today that Sanford "has squandered the trust South Carolinians had in him."

The Greenville News said Sanford "has destroyed any shred of credibility with his lies unnecessarily added on top of other lies."

For the good of South

For the good of South Carolina and the nation, the governor must NOT resign. This whole circus is exposing the "family values" party for what it is and that's good for all of us. Hang in there, luv guv, working people are counting on you to keep the show going and reveal the hypocrisy behind those claiming false morals.

exposing any politician as a hypocrite or philanderer just shouldn't be a reason to force their resignation; proving that a politician is incapable of taking care of the people's business due to loss of trust is a good reason to demand that a politician resign.

You can't really count the

You can't really count the Spartanburg paper for much, on Fathers Day the front page for them and lead story was about the Gay Parade, so their thoughts are not the best to follow.
As for SCEagle Eye- I really could care less what your liberal thoughts are about on FAMILY VAULES. In fact I would suggest a nice place for you like France.
