South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford re-emerged into public life at the Susan Komen Race for the Cure in Charleston today. She says she’s not going to discuss her marriage any more.
Sanford, who is living separately from her husband, has a contract with Ballantine Books for an upcoming memoir about “the universal issue of maintaining integrity and a sense of self during life’s difficult times”
An intimate of Mrs. Sanford’s tells the LA Times that the book will certainly not be “a feminist statement,” since Mrs. Sanford is a famously loyal spouse.
Her husband, who up to this point was not noted for his feminist tendencies, was not reached for comment.
