An update from the Palmetto state via NY Magazine:
According to Jenny [Sanford], she had already told [ex-husband] Mark she would be taking a pass on the [Congressional] race the day before, at the funeral of a mutual friend. So when Mark came to visit her, he arrived with a proposal. “Since you’re not running, I want to know if you’ll run my campaign,” he said. “We could put the team back together.”
Jenny told him, in so many words, that wasn’t going to happen. Mark made one last appeal.
“I could pay you this time,” he said.
“I’ve got cash,” Sanford did not say. “I’ll leave a $20 on the dresser.”
Sweet Jeebus, what is wrong with Wingnuts today? Of all people, why did bad-haired GOP sex-lizard and notorious Appalachian trail hiking, amateur castanet playing Lothario, former South Carolina Governor Mark “Kiss Me South of the Border” Sanford think that the woman he cheated on (who, it seems, was the brains of the operation) would want back on the Crazy Train?
It must be the haircut
Just a reminder of the seething hotbed of unbridled lust, a sample of Sanford’s correspondence to his firecracker lady:
“I could digress and say that … I love your tan lines or that I love the curves of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of night’s light.”
