That is incredibly unprofessional and irresponsible. He has to step down.
    Where is your evidence that it was the state's money?

    And it wouldn't surprise me if Gov. Sanford had followed such praise with a speech about morality and how he still upholds the sanctitiy of marriage as it is defined in the Bible, as between one man and two women.
    Wrong trip. That was a previous trip in which he was actually there on business.

    This trip was not business, that quote is not a recent one.

    He did however request that Argentina be added to the agenda of that trip. Whether that was to see this woman or not is unknown.

    That was facetiously inflammatory, not to mention pointless speculation; the fact is he did no such thing. You are trolling conservatives and Christians with that paragraph, and nothing more.

    Been all over the news today. Does not necessarily mean anything, but I suspect that since it looks bad, that is why he is repaying for the trip.

    Repaying for the trip? Again news to me.

    Looking for an online link to confirm that he added Argentina to his trip itinerary. Wrestling on, so it's slow going.

    Edited to add: not finding confirmation on the changed Itinerary, so consider that unconfirmed. I heard it repeatedly on TV news today(unemployment leaves me too much TV time), but find no source yet.

    That trip he is repaying as pointed out in the link is the trip he took a year ago, while on official business with the U.S. Commerce Department. I think its very noble of him to offer to repay the Argentinian leg of the trip myself.
