After a mysterious five day disappearance, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted to having an affair with a woman in Argentina.

This is a huge disappointment to Republicans who rallied behind Sanford after he asked the Obama administration to spend some of the stimulus money on debt reduction and then refused to take the money when they refused (see, for example, “Why South Carolina Doesn’t Want Stimulus” (subscription required), Mark Sanford, The Wall Street Journal, March 21, 2009).  He had been mentioned as a potential Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential election.
