McMaster: Sanford should release travel records

S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster said today that Gov. Mark Sanford should release all his personal travel records.

Earlier this week, Sanford said he would release those records as part of his effort to assure taxpayers that no state money was used for trips that he took to meet his Argentine lover in South America, New York City and the Hamptons. the Republican governor then repaid the state treasurer $3,300 as the cost of part of a 2008 South American trip.

Subsequently, Sanford said he would not release the records, and his office said the governor would no longer discuss the controversy.

McMaster, who is seeking the GOP nomination to succeed the term-limited Sanford said, "Maintaining public trust, complete transparency, and full public disclosure is vitally important. I have called on Governor Sanford to publicly release all travel records to the media and public as promised."
