    So because someo politicians are scumbags, that makes it ok? Shoudn't we demand a higher standard from our leaders? Shouldn't we work to change this precendent rather than just giving politicians a free pass?

    If Sanford ran the state fiscally well with good employment, low crime and a solid balance sheet, him teabagging hookers isn't that much of a concern to me.

    I'd rather have a competent, but immoral governor rather then an upstanding morally pure governor who couldn't run a kiddie fair well.
    Ok, I have to make a point here. Adolf Hitler brought his state out of a giagantic recession, reduced unemployment, reduced criminal prosecutions, and envigorated a nation. Not the most moral chap, but according to you....

    I know it is rather cliched, but this is where your logic could lead.

    No reason for him to resign.

    Re: Should Sanford resign?

    In my opinion, he should resign. Not because he had an affair, but because clearly, his head isn't in the game right now. The man took off and left his work responsibilities for a SOLID WEEK with no notice and no information about his whereabouts. How many of us would keep our jobs if we did that?

    He should be fired for unprofessionalism and for failing to act like a grown up.

    (I could care less where the man was sticking his dick as long as he did his damn job...)

    AHH!

    I voted no, but I really meant to vote yes!

    Yes he betrayed his position, he betrayed the voters, by not disclosing his whereabouts. I mean he is the Executive branch of a State, there is no excuse for this. If he simply came out about the affair, there would be no issue with me.

    I think if we stuck to how people actually do or actually qualify for their jobs we'd be much better off.
    Then again, we're trusting our politicians to serve our interests honestly, and if a guy will lie to his wife, you can bet your ass he's already lying to you.

    So issues of fidelity strike right at the heart of the issue of character and hence trust.

    But the Democrats, who vociferously defended a perjured rapist, will be right out in the front of the mob demanding Sanford's head.

    The guy should resign for one major reason: The dumb**** took off without leaving a contact number or his whereabouts to his staff. He holds a position of responsibility to the state of South Carolina and he failed the people of that state for four days.

    He was elected for a term, and he should suck it up and serve his term. If the legislature wants him out, it's their job to impeach him, and if the people want him out, it's their job to vote him out. Whether or not he continues the affair, he's not going to make this mistake again.

    I'll side with the others saying I don't care about politicians' sex lives, but I do say that writing boyish love poetry and then spending a week with his lover-- after his wife specifically warned him not to-- is despicable. Beyond his duties to his State, he has a wife and sons to consider, and this schoolboy crush of his is interfering with his duties to them as well. He needs to get his head together and figure out where things stand between him and his wife.

    Only reason for him to resign is if the job is getting in the way of that. No other obligation can outweigh his obligation to his family.

    I agree with you. I would like our leaders to have good morals but their sex lives are up to them. The main reasons I think he should resign;
    1. He left his state without a leader for a whole week while spending time with his lover,
    2. He ignored the fact that his sons, and wife would be emotionally scared by the fact that he cheated on their mother, and his wife that he cheated on her.

    Sanford called for Clinton to resign, he needs to resign. He is obviously not in the right state of mind.
