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."
