CHARLESTON, S.C. — Newly elected Congressman Mark Sanford and his ex-wife have settled a complaint that said he was at her home without her permission in violation of their divorce agreement….
Under the settlement, Sanford admits he was in contempt of the divorce decree then and on previous occasions. The judge agreed to withhold sentencing Sanford as long as he complies with the provision in their divorce settlement that he not enter his ex-wife’s Sullivans Island, S.C., home without her permission.
Sanford also agreed to pay her $5,000 in fees and court costs…
As to the matter of his showing contempt for the people of the 1st District, and them just eating it up, that’s another story.
He’s all yours, Lowcountry, and welcome to him.
