Mark Sanford’s Sleazy Divorce Transcript: Dead Children and a Deadbeat Dad
You may have already known that South Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Sanford was an amazingly crummy person. but the new details unearthed by Wonkette’s Kaili Joy Gray take Sanford into the realm of jaw-droppingly horrible: Dead Children and a Deadbeat Dad: Mark Sanford’s Sad, Sleazy Divorce Hearing Transcript.
In this creepy story, you will learn:
- that Mark was a deadbeat dad who was found in contempt of court for his refusal to make his court-ordered child support payments;
- that the previously unexplained prohibition against Mark flying airplanes at children arose because "crazy cousin" John played "chicken" by flying an actual passenger airplane at the Sanford kids;
- that Mark and his ex-wife's primary concern, following the deaths of TWO kids who drowned at Coosaw Plantation, the Sanford family farm, was not about making the farm safer, but rather, protecting their financial assets in case any more kids died there;
- that Mark repeatedly offered to get back together with his ex, while he was still banging his Argentine lover;
- that Mark needlessly lied about legal representation.
Wonkette has lots more details; go ye and read of it. But in case you really want to wonk out, here’s the actual court document for your perusal. My only comment is “yeccchhh.”
