Jenny Sanford has announced she if filing for a divorce:
“As so many of us know, the dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process. It is also a very personal and private one. Because Mark and I are public figures, we have naturally had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than do other couples. Indeed, I know it will soon become known so I choose to release this brief notice that I am now filing for divorce. This came after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation, yet I am still dedicated to keeping the process that lies ahead peaceful for our family.
“I remain thankful to so many across this state and nation for their words of encouragement and prayers during this difficult time. Please know the boys and I are doing well and are blessed with the incredible support of friends and family and bolstered by our faith and the unfailing love of our God above.”
In somewhat related news, Eliot Spitzer is considering running for state comptroller and Tiger Woods is taking a hiatus from golf. John Edwards remains the sleaziest of them all. He cheated on his wife who was fighting cancer, had a baby with Rielle Hunter and denied paternity, and now has tossed Hunter and their daughter out on the street after Hunter demanded too much money.
