Impeachment debate in S.C. focuses on tryst
Advertisements [?]
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Lawmakers debating whether to impeach South Carolina's governor challenged claims Monday that a 2008 taxpayer-funded trip where he saw his Argentine mistress was legitimate state business.

After confessing the affair in June, Gov. Mark Sanford reimbursed the state for $3,300 in travel expense tied to the Buenos Aires trip a year earlier.

"It's just obvious that this trip was a personal trip and state business was kind of thrown in as a cover," state Rep. Greg Delleney said during a fourth day of impeachment hearings.

Delleney, R-Chester, wrote the impeachment resolution that says the married Sanford was derelict in his duties when he abandoned the state in June of this year to secretly spend five days with mistress Maria Belen Chapur. The affair became public when he disappeared and his staff said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.
