    Yes, Barry is still in office, and what? He smoked crack 21 years ago, what you're saying is that smoking crack compares to misappropriating/misuse of public funds.

    This happens all the time in state, local and federal government. When an official combines personal travel with official travel, he/she reimburses for the personal expenses. It's common practice. Happens in the private sector too.

    You've either never worked for government or you've never worked for a private company. So I'll figure you don't have access to a company credit card of any sort. He didn't reimburse it out of his own good will. He did it after he was called out on spending tax payer money to fund his flings. Good luck justifying that with any HR office.

    Do you have any predictions about how long it will be before that freak Sanford flies off to another mistress-cum-soul-mate in a foriegn land, while talking about family values.

    I spent nearly 34 years with the federal government, retiring in 2009. Since then I've worked for a large defense contractor and now a small consulting company. Used a government card and used a company card. Procedures are roughly the same. It's not a problem.
