One week after his extramarital affair in Argentina surfaced, some wonder what will happen to South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford‘s book deal. According to CNN, the rising Republican star secured (before the affair surfaced) a book deal with Penguin’s Sentinel imprint–scheduled for Spring 2010 publication.
The news agency caught up with the imprint’s associate publisher, Will Weisser, for an interview with a cryptic ending. This isn’t Sanford’s first book. In 2000, he published a book entitled, interestingly enough, “The Trust Committed To Me.”
Here’s more from the article: “Weisser would not elaborate on whether that meant Sanford would write a new book about the scandal, or if it simply meant the book deal has been scrapped altogether. ‘We’ll announce a decision about what’s going to happen about the book.’ he said.”
