The administration that brought us the Latin lover has now brought us the porno writer.

Two months after Gov. Mark Sanford admitted slipping out of the country to visit his Argentine mistress, his appointment to the state Board of Education has suddenly resigned after some of her internet sex fantasies came to light on the blog

“Kristin Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolina’s most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governor’s closest education policy advisors for years,” Fits writes. “She’s also Sanford’s appointment to the S.C. Board of Education, which last year elected her its Chairwoman….

“Maguire, a professed Christian who home-schools her four children, declined to comment for our story but did not deny that she had previously frequented websites that feature such X-rated material. Maguire believes that a former friend is leaking the information to the media in an effort to ruin her political career….

“Maguire’s involvement in S.C. politics goes well beyond her leadership of the S.C. Board of Education or her involvement with the Sanford administration. She is an executive committeewoman of the S.C. Republican Party, as well as the woman responsible for drafting the party’s education platform.

“Prior to being elected Chairwoman, Maguire led the panel responsible for approving education standards taught in South Carolina classrooms, including what textbooks were to be used and how teachers were to be certified. She has been a strong supporter of ‘abstinence only’ sex education, as well.”
