By FITSNews || For those of you who missed her big Barbara Walters interview, S.C. First Lady Jenny Sanford (TM) was at it again on Monday, transforming her “private anguish” into additional public overexposure (and ka-ka-ching) on Good Morning America.

Interviewed by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, this time Mrs. Sanford – who is pimping her book Staying True – found herself on the receiving end of some non-Baaa-Baaaa questions, including one about her “alleged” efforts to keep her disgraced husband in office at a critical juncture in the evolution of the scandal.

In fact, the soon-to-be ex-wife of S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford was asked point blank by Stephanopoulos whether or not she “called legislators to save her husband’s job.”

“I-I-I … not to my knowledge,” a visibly surprised Mrs. Sanford stammered. “(Long pause) I don’t recall calling anybody.”

Asked the same question again, she gave the same answer.

“Not to my knowledge, no.”

Obviously that contradicts our previous coverage on this subject – which has been confirmed by more than a few members of the mainstream media.

In fact, FITS spoke with several lawmakers Monday who once again confirmed what they told us six months ago – that the First Lady indeed called them during the critical weeks after the scandal broke (and after the governor’s disastrous AP interview) and urged them to stick with him.

You can watch Mrs. Sanford’s interview below … the exchange about “calling legislators” comes at the 3:40 mark.

While not as serious (cough – is any of this serious?), there’s another section of the interview in which the First Lady is clearly full of it – the part where she denies “Googling” Maria Belen Chapur.

“I think my kids were Googling her,” Mrs. Sanford says.

What? Blaming it on the kids?

Tsk-tsk-tsk …

For those of you who’ve forgotten already, in Mrs. Sanford’s big Vogue spread back in August of last year, a friend of the First Lady told the publication that she and the First Lady “Googled” Chapur, and that Mrs. Sanford found her “pretty.”

UPDATE: Hey Jenny … what’s (Sic’s) name?

UPDATE II: Oh, and here’s what the whole (TM) thing is about …
