And you thought you’d heard the last apology from Mark Sanford. But no.
The governor of South Carolina has penned a long, mea maxima culpa — an op-ed piece — in today’s The State, the Columbia newspaper.
A few tidbits:
I have struggled with how best to convey my regret in letting so many down, and in that regard I realize this column does not do justice to the process of saying “I am sorry.”
A hand-written note or phone call would ultimately be more appropriate, but given the number of people I need to apologize to, I write this to begin the journey of trying to get things more right with you and others….
If you ever have the misfortune of being at this point, whether self-induced as in my case or not, it will give you an indeed amazing perspective on life and on what really matters. I read notes from someone who worked in a sandwich shop I ate at 10 years ago, from 7th-grade classmates, from state employees and more….
I’ve been humbled and broken as never before in my life, and as a consequence have given up areas of control in a way that I never have before. And it is my belief that this will make me a better father, husband, friend and advocate.
You do doubt wonder where this is headed. Many people do. Grayson Daughters, an Atlanta videographer, posted the following this morning on her Facebook account:
