Ex-Wife Accuses Sanford of Trespassing


Here is a news story sure to complicate South Carolina congressional candidate Mark Sanford’s comeback story: His ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, is accusing him of trespassing in her home (he’s not allowed to be there unless she has given him permission, per the divorce agreement), according to the Associated Press. Mark Sanford will have to go to court to settle the issue, with the date for that set for a mere two days after the election.

South Carolina’s first district has a definite built-in Republican advantage, but pair this with fiasco with the fact that Sanford’s Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, is enjoying the funding made possible by having a celebrity for a brother (Stephen Colbert), and it’s going to be a rocky race.
