Sanford Has A Book Deal?

The latest chapter in Gov. Mark Sanford's sordid story: a book deal! His publisher told CNN Wednesday that the governor had been planning a book outlining his 'policy beliefs.' Of course, this was before Sanford admitted to an affair with an Argentinian mistress, "crossing the line" with multiple other women outside his marriage, and his belief that he was caught up in a "love story" that was not only "forbidden" but "tragic."

According to the publisher it was to be "a manifesto about fiscal conservatism -- why the government needs to spend less and fix the deficit ASAP." The publisher wouldn't say whether the book was still on the way, but more details should be forthcoming this week.
