The State has a good reconstruction of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford avoided impeachment. I feel like I already knew this piece of the puzzle, but it's still interesting to hear just how critical Jenny Sanford was to preserving her cheating husband's governorship:
With Sanford talking about other women and characterizing his extramarital affair as a "tragic love story," even friends were questioning whether Sanford had lost it and should resign.
Jenny Sanford privately began calling lawmakers on the governor's behalf. The calls were "a lifeline" to her estranged husband, according to some of the Republicans who asked Sanford to resign.
