Jenny Sanford: Son called my husband's affair 'worse than Eliot Spitzer'
South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford writes in her new book that she got short of breath and later felt unwanted and ugly when she found out about her husband's affair with an Argentine woman.
The New York Daily News reported on its Web site Monday that Sanford also writes that one of her sons exclaimed that it's "worse than Eliot Spitzer" when she told them about Gov. Mark Sanford's infidelity.
Spitzer is the former New York governor who resigned after acknowledging he was a client of a call-girl ring.
Jenny Sanford's memoir "Staying True," published by Ballantine Books, an imprint of Random House Inc., goes on sale Friday. She will be interviewed by Barbara Walters on ABC's 20/20 on Thursday night.
Sanford has filed for divorce from her husband of more than 20 years. The divorce will be final later this month.
Mark Sanford disappeared from the state for five days last summer, and his staff told reporters he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. But he was really in Argentina seeing his mistress, Maria Belen Chapur, during a trip that was supposed to be an economic development mission.
Mark Sanford, who later called the other woman his "soul mate" in an interview with The Associated Press, publicly confessed the affair in a news conference upon his return.
