Sanford facing 37 charges

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
AP reports: "South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford faces 37 charges he broke state laws limiting official use of airplanes and campaign money. The details were released Monday by the State Ethics Commission. They came five days after the panel charged the governor without offering any specifics. Sanford's lawyers have claimed the charges involve minor and technical aspects of the law."

The New York Times: "Some of these trip charges fall under a specific allegation saying he used his public office for personal financial gain, the commission documents show." (The Times has the full state ethics commission complaint here.)

Sanford has about 14 months remaining in office.
