Sanford admits affair with woman in Argentina

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford acknowledged Wednesday that he was carrying on an affair with a woman in Argentina when he disappeared from his office last week, only to resurface this morning. Sanford said he would resign as chairman of the Republican Governors Association and asked for forgiveness from his wife and four sons. He did not identify the woman, but asked for privacy. He said he and his wife had been working through the issues for the past five months.
