Gov. Mark Sanford: divorce tragic point
Fri, 26 Feb 2010 19:04:33 GMT — COLUMBIA (WACH) - After a family court judge said she'll grant South Carolina's first lady a divorce from Governor Mark Sanford, he released this statement:
"While it is not the course I would have hoped for, or would choose, I want to take full responsibility for the moral failure that led us to this tragic point. Jenny is a great person, and has been a remarkable wife, mother and First Lady. She has been more than gracious these last six months and gone above and beyond in her patience and commitment to put the needs of others in front of her own. While our family structure may change, I know that we will both work earnestly to be the best mom and dad we can be to four of the finest boys on earth.Governor Sanford has also asked that the press respect his desire for privacy as he tries to move forward.
