Can someone make a case for how he survives this?

(CNN) – A second South Carolina newspaper is calling for Gov. Mark Sanford to resign.

The editorial Friday morning in the Orangeburg Times and Democrat comes two days after Sanford admitted to an extramarital affair with a woman from Argentina. The governor also acknowledged Wednesday that he did not tell his staff that he was in Argentina during a five-day period over the past week.

“Sanford should exit not because of his personal problems but because in dealing with those problems, he has shown clearly that he cannot be an effective leader. The entire episode vividly illustrates irresponsibility and poor judgment. He could not have handled the situation worse,” the paper says in an editorial.
