Mark Sanford’s son’s reaction to the news of his father’s affair was that it’s “worse than Eliot Spitzer.” This comes out in Jenny Sanford’s book. Among the revelations:
- Mark Sanford kept “pestering” her for permission to see his mistress even after she found their lovelorn messages.
- He was a cheapskate who once took back a birthday necklace he gave her a day earlier.
Maybe it’s worse than Eliot Spitzer, but this all sounds pretty tame compared to what we’ve heard about John Edwards.
