SC Governor Under More Scrutiny

Embattled South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is meeting with his cabinet a day after a state senator said the Republican governor violated state travel laws.

Sanford has been under increased scrutiny since admitting in June he had an affair with a woman in Argentina. He's vowed to stay in office. He is scheduled to hold a regular cabinet meeting Tuesday.

Fellow Republican state Sen. David Thomas said Monday the governor violated laws requiring the cheapest travel possible when he flew business- and first-class to China and London. Thomas heads a legislative committee investigating Sanford's travel. Thomas said the tickets cost taxpayers $13,700 more than available economy-class flights.

A Sanford spokesman said Thomas is wrong and that his conclusions blatantly overreach.
