South Carolina governor's divorce finalized


CHARLESTON, S.C. - A judge yesterday finalized Jenny Sanford's divorce from South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, ending their 20-year marriage.

The governor disappeared for several days last summer, then admitted when he returned to the state that he was having an affair with a woman in Argentina.

The governor also has agreed to pay $74,000 in fines to resolve dozens of charges that he violated state ethics laws with his campaign spending and travel, the State Ethics Commission said yesterday.
