    Right, this is also the trip where he asked for Argentina to be added to the itinerary from what I saw on TV.

    Well when you get a good solid link for that one let me know.

    Im not trying to be snobbish about this, but with a 2 year old in the house my TV stays on Noggin.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No worries, I understand.

    It's in all of the recent articles about it. How can you not know of his misuse of state money if you have read any of the stories about it?

    Got one.

    Gov. Sanford Struggles to Hang On - WSJ.com

    Earlier Thursday, a spokeswoman for the South Carolina Department of Commerce confirmed that Mr. Sanford instructed state officials to extend a taxpayer-funded mission to Brazil a year ago to include a trip to Buenos Aires at the time his relationship with a woman who lived there was becoming romantic. The department estimated Mr. Sanford's share of the Argentina leg cost $11,000. There is no indication that state funds were spent on Mr. Sanford's most recent trip to Argentina, during which his staff said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

    Again, that was the previous trip in which they were on business.

    I am talking specifically about THIS trip he just took.

    The fact of the matter is you have no evidence to support the assertion that the state funds were used SPECIFICALLY to meet her, since it was an official trip with an official purpose and there were multiple places that were visited, not just Argentina.

    This trip was not business, that quote is not a recent one.
    Doesn't make a difference, in fact it makes it a more egregiously ironic statement since he also snuck away to see the same mistress during that prior trip. Why else do you think he went there to begin with? Do you really believe he had anything but a concocted state purpose to be in Argentina even the first time?

    I take it conservatives are just skimming this news with the least possible reading comprehension, maybe even closing their eyes while pretending to have read it, for the usual partisan reasons.

    No, Im reading the article with perfect reading comprehension.

    Im not reading into and making my own partisan assumptions as it appears that you have done.

    It may be the case that you are correct, however, Im not going to jump up and down stating it to be so until there is a little more substance than an "educated guess".

    If you are talking about this trip, you are correct. We do not yet have enough information to judge.

    Well because you have so much trouble finding the passage, here:

    "Sanford also issued a statement promising to reimburse the state for an economic-development trip he took to Argentina last year that included time he spent with his mistress. State Commerce Department records indicate more than $8,000 was spent on airfare, lodging and meals, though Sanford did not say how much he will pay back."
    You can also google the original quote and find it referenced to one of those two trips to see his mistress.
