Jenny Sanford wants psych exam for US Rep. Sanford

Jenny Sanford is asking that U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford undergo a psychiatric evaluation and take anger management and parenting courses in the latest filing in the couple's contentious divorce.

She also wants the court to appoint an impartial guardian to look after the interests of the youngest of their four sons.

Jenny Sanford also asked the court to seal the record concerning issues relating to their youngest. She says the change of circumstances that led her to request the psychiatric exam will be in a complaint filed once the record is sealed.

Mark Sanford didn't immediately respond to messages left by The Associated Press seeking comment.

The two divorced 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.
