CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford says accusations and requests made by his ex-wife Jenny in their contentious divorce, including that he undergo psychiatric tests, are "preposterous, crazy and wrong."
Attorneys for Jenny Sanford are asking for limits on the South Carolina congressman's visitation with his youngest child and that he also take anger management and parenting courses.
In a statement released to The Associated Press on Wednesday, Sanford says he has done everything he can to be both a good father and former husband since the couple divorced in 2010.
They split after then-Gov. Sanford disappeared from South Carolina in 2009. He returned from Argentina to acknowledge an affair with a woman to whom he is now engaged.
