Charleston, SC – April 17, 2013 – Former Governor Mark Sanford today released the following statement:

“It’s an unfortunate reality that divorced couples sometimes have disagreements that spill over into family court. I did indeed watch the second half of the Super Bowl at the beach house with our 14 year old son because as a father I didn’t think he should watch it alone. Given she was out of town I tried to reach her beforehand to tell her of the situation that had arisen, and met her at the back steps under the light of my cell phone when she returned and told her what had happened.

“There is always another side to every story, and while I am particularly curious how records that were sealed to avoid the boys dealing with embarrassment are now somehow exposed less than three weeks before this election, I agree with Jenny that the media is no place to debate what is ultimately a family court matter, and out of respect for Jenny and the boys, I’m not going to have any further comment at this time,” Sanford said.

“. . . tried to reach Jenny Sanford to say the boy shouldn’t watch the game alone.”

On SULLIVANS ISLAND? At JENNY’S home? To PROTECT the 14-year-old?

The Sullivans Island Police Dept. drive past that home every three hours, day and night.

That whole family has super-duper security.

SIPD has no desire to have a crime committed on the Island, and citizens there watch out for one another like hawks. Many of us are retired. It’s a VERY safe community.

What an idiotic excuse.

Was thinking of voting for him, now starting to change my mind.

Jenny, we support you! What a nut-case Mark has become.

So glad he is so concerned with his boys now. Remember this is the man who spent Father’s Day in Argentina with his mistress while trying to work things out with his wife. Why couldn’t he have picked the child up and taken him to his place to watch the game? Why did he have to watch it there? He doesn’t see or care beyond his own interests.

Such an honorable caring father. That family certainly did not deserve Sanford. Such an honorable man deserves whatever he desires.

I did indeed watch the second half of the Super Bowl at the beach house with our 14 year old son because as a father I didn’t think he should watch it alone

Boobs may pop out at halftime!

It seems suspect that this is coming to light right before elections. It seems it is an upset wife that can get even with an ex. She knows is is leading and the poles and after his girlfriend showed up and the pics hit the media it has her mad so it seems to be a get even situation. If this happened 2 months ago why wasn’t she all over the news raising hell about it then? Something to think about.

The way he refers to Jenny’s home as “the beach house” makes it sound like it’s his weekend getaway. The man has no boundaries.

“A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish.” So, I ask, Mr. Sanford, were you really telling the truth about your 14 year 0ld son being home alone? I’ve heard another kid was home. Keep burying yourself till your 6 feet under.
