South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's girlfriend, Maria Belen Chapur, is a former TV reporters. The State dug up this clip of her on air in 2001. Her segment begins about 35 seconds into the clip.
I was going to let the Sanford story move along. But, today, in addition to girlfriend footage, we have news that the governor compared himself to the Bible's King David. Did David quit after a sex scandal? He did not. And neither will Mark Sanford.
