Amsterdam – SLED agents assigned to secretly follow the governor and his family reported today that Governor Sanford and his wife Jenny left their four sons in a hotel while they cavorted in Amsterdam’s steamy red light district.
The Sanford boys rang up a $1200 room service charge on their father’s state-issued credit card while their parents were away.
SLED agents, posing undercover, followed Mark and Jenny Sanford into the red light district around 4:00 p.m. The Sanfords’ first stop was a sex shop that specialized in adult video titles and other “novelties.” The couple then exited through a back door into a less well publicized section of Amsterdam catering to sexual fetishes and role-playing fantasies.
“We observed the couple come out of the back exit of the video store and then enter into a darkened doorway. That particular establishment was a foot fetish establishment that also allowed toe-sucking. We believe that both the governor and his wife held hands while paying for an individual to suck their toes,” one of the agents who requested anonymity said.
After leaving this establishment, the Sanfords then entered into a shop that catered to role-playing. It was unclear to the agents what scenario the couple were acting out, but receipts found on the floor after the Sanford’s exit suggested that it was a related to a classic tale of a stable boy wooed by the wealthy stable owner’s daughter. The Sanfords didn’t use any of the state’s credit cards at these establishments.
State investigators say that the Sanfords did nothing wrong and that the Sanford boys’ bill was paid in full before the family checked out of the hotel.
