S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford is reportedly being called or visited by some of his closest advisors this morning, all of whom are privately urging him to step down in the wake of the disastrous fallout from yesterday’s revelations of additional liaisons with his Argentine lover, Maria Belen Chapur, and admissions of inappropriate physical relations with other women.

Additionally, some of Sanford’s closest friends have reportedly been advising him to step down privately from the beginning of this crisis – which began a week ago – but have been holding their tongues publicly.

That could be changing today.

Sources tell FITS that one of Sanford’s closest friends and legislative allies, Beaufort Sen. Tom Davis, traveled to Columbia this morning to meet with the governor.

Davis was not immediately available to confirm those reports.

Could this be the “come to Jesus” meeting?
