South Carolina's Republican Gov. Carroll A. Campbell Jr. is a man in the hot seat.

So this was how the bizarre story of South Carolina's missing governor would end: with a sad and shocking South American twist. It turns out there was another woman for Gov. Mark Sanford, the married champion of conservative values -- a woman in Buenos Aires, one whom his hometown paper has identified only as "Maria."
