South Carolina Governor Would Allow An Ethics Probe To Be Public

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he doesn't know if ethics investigators are looking at his travel, but the Republican says he will allow any probe to be public.

State Ethics Commission Executive Director Herb Hayden said Friday he hasn't received a confidentiality waiver from Sanford and can't confirm if there is an investigation.

Attorney General Henry McMaster asked ethics investigators to look into the governor's travel records after an Associated Press investigation revealed Sanford used state planes for personal and political trips, which state law prohibits, and took pricey commercial flights.

Sanford's travels have come under scrutiny after he disappeared in June, returning to confess an affair with an Argentine woman.
