Mark Sanford: Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford was a rising star in the Republican Party when he went missing for several days in 2009. He initially claimed he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, but ultimately admitted he was having an affair with a woman in Argentina, who he described as his "soul mate." His wife filed for divorce later that year. Sanford is no longer in office, but has said he plans to run for his old congressional seat, which recently became empty when Rep. Tim Hass was appointed to the Senate. He is also engaged to his one-time mistress.
