"First Lady Jenny Sanford announced Friday she is moving with her four sons to Charleston and will no longer live in the Governor's Mansion" in Columbia, The State reports.

In a statement, she said that in Charleston, "we will work to continue the process of healing our family."

The odds may be small, but in case you missed the news about Gov. Sanford: In June, the Republican governor left for what his staff said was a hike on the Appalachian Trail — only to return to say he'd been visiting a mistress in Argentina.
