Sanford Granted Divorce Request

A judge granted Jenny Sanford a divorce from South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) earlier today. A video of her testifying at the hearing provides more details of how she learned of the governor's extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina.

Here's the video clip:



Gov. Sanford's office released a statement was the same as the one he released in December when news of his wife's divorce filing became public.

"While it is not the course I would have hoped for, or would choose, I want to take full responsibility for the moral failure that led us to this tragic point," Gov. Sanford said in his statement. "Jenny is a great person, and has been a remarkable wife, mother and first lady.

"I will join with her in asking the press to respect our shared desire for privacy as we quietly move forward. We respectively ask for your prayers."
