    I don't recall any story about him being "caught" and the government of SC had taken no extraordinary action. The process took as long as it took, that's all. I'm not a special fan of Sanford, but the fact that you don't like him makes him more attractive.

    So in other words, you actually are making up falsehoods as every president does that. Just wanting to make completely sure you were lying. Thanks a bunch for confirming that. Just because you think it is the same does not make it illegal like what mark Sanford actually did.

    It took as long as it took because he didn't act on it until several newspapers put in a Freedom of Information Act and dug up his insanely lavish travel. All the sudden after it was reported and after he was allowed and agreed to block investigations of his 37 ethics violations with a $74,000 fine... brought about by the South Carolina GOP run government... all while continuing to say he did nothing wrong.

    That's admitting that I make your choices for you. And you freely admit this? You seem to be falling into the same camp as these folks:

    How to Sell Conservatives on Energy-Efficient Lightbulbs

    The study looked at the choices of 210 consumers, about two-thirds of them women. All were briefed on the benefits of compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs over old-fashioned incandescents.

    When both bulbs were priced the same, shoppers across the political spectrum were uniformly inclined to choose CFL bulbs over incandescents, even those with environmental labels, the study found.

    But when the fluorescent bulb cost more $1.50 instead of $0.50 for an incandescent the conservatives who reached for the CFL bulb chose the one without the eco-friendly label.

    "The more moderate and conservative participants preferred to bear a long-term financial cost to avoid purchasing an item associated with valuing environmental protections," the study said.

    Be sure to never talk about Sanford in this thread about Sanford. All your deflections helps you protect him.

    There was never any indication that anything had been done wrong. As for making choices, I've made none. Sanford is the issue of the moment. You don't like him, so I enjoy his success.

    Good evening, Gathomass88.

    1. With a few exceptions, you're casting a vote for the least despicable candidate, because...

    2. There's not a saint alive who would ever consider a career in politics! They're too honest! :

    True that!

    Frankly, Sanford has nothing on some of the more despicable candidates the DNC has put forward over the years anyway. Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid were and are (respectfully) some the worst human beings to ever disgrace American politics.

    At least Sanford's more or less honest about it.
