More Trouble for Sanford?

Aug 21, 2009 1:47pm

Mark Sanford may have more trouble on his hands. An Associated Press investigation shows the South Carolina Governor took dozens of flights on private planes that he didn't report despite a state law requiring him to disclose who paid for the travel.

The AP says it discovered 35 flights Sanford took on private planes that
he did not disclose on ethics or campaign reports. The flights are
noted on calendars obtained through a public records request, the news agency says.

The AP further reports that Sanford's staff says he didn't report the flights because longtime friends or political groups paid for them. But state
ethics officials say Sanford must report his use of private planes
even if friends pay, the AP reports.

Sanford has been in hot water with voters and colleagues since revealing an affair with an Argentine woman. He already faces a possible inquiry into his use of state aircraft.
