Jenny Sanford Announces Divorce from Cheating Governor
Looks like Jenny Sanford has had enough. "The dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process," she says in a statement.
But she's up for it: "I am now filing for divorce."
"About time!" says South Carolina News.
Since her husband South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford's spectacular admission of infidelity and of continued devotion to his non-marital "soul mate" last summer, Jenny Sanford has moved out of the Governor's mansion, but kept her mouth shut about her future plans -- apart, of course, for the occasional celebrity interview -- keeping her powder dry for a book about her travails, which will presumably be rushed out following this development.
She'll probably come out of this thing better off than her husband, who faces impeachment charges -- though he may get away with a censure, as local interest wanes in punishing him. Well, neither of them is going to miss any meals. So: win-win, then.
