Court papers filed against Mark Sanford

Posted: Updated:
Charleston - The ex-wife of U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford has accused the congressman of violating the couple's divorce agreement.

Their agreement is sealed and the complaint released by the family court was redacted and did not include what her ex-husband is accused of doing.

Jenny Sanford declined comment. 
    
We received this statement from Mark Sanford's spokesperson, Jon Kohan: "The papers that we just learned were filed yesterday are a deliberate attempt to attract unnecessary public attention to what is a private family real estate matter at Rep. Sanford's family farm. Choosing to settle this sort of minor disagreement in court is surprising, and even more unfortunate is when attempts are made to air these things out in the court of public opinion, which appears to be the goal here."

Last year, the couple settled an earlier complaint that Mark Sanford violated the divorce by being in his ex-wife's home without permission.

As governor five years ago, Sanford disappeared for five days and returned from Argentina to admit he had been having an affair with a woman to whom he is now engaged. He finished his term and was elected to Congress last year.
