Sanford to speak in public

  • Follow Latest News

GREER, S.C. — Gov. Mark Sanford is making his first public appearance since saying his Argentine mistress was his "soul mate."

His office says Mr. Sanford will be in Greer, near Spartanburg, today to talk about the federal law that requires states to issue drivers' licenses that meet new security mandates.

Last year, he locked horns with federal officials over the Real ID law, saying the changes were too costly. The Department of Homeland Security eventually granted the state an extension to comply with the law.

Mr. Sanford has been staying out of the spotlight since last month, when he revealed a yearlong extramarital affair with the Argentine woman.

He described the woman as his "soul mate" in a series of Associated Press interviews but said he would work to repair his relationship with his wife.

Doesn't matter if she's a dem

Doesn't matter if she's a dem or not, she's a typical white woman (regardless of her being in the public eye) who said the N word, something I'm sure you and others say daily NO DIXIE. In fact if Buchanan, Ingraham, Beck, KKKanity, Drugbaugh, Salvage, Tammy Bruce can say the N word without getting into a HEAP of trouble they would, DAILY.

He is a real Homeland

He is a real Homeland security advocate who knows the value of things. He is also first class about thing that he needs. By the way jackfruitpaper, I call the idiot running up and down my street with his Boom Box at full throttle the "N" word all the time. If the title fits, wear it. Although you probably think that would be inappropriate for way he is acting. BTW he is the same "N" that sits in the gas station with with his stereo at full blast with lyrics such as " strangle that BITc& and Fu@@ her in the A@@, that all she good for anyway. And he plays that garbage with no regard for anyone who may be around. Now you tell me is he a "N" or what?
