not for the boinking, but the lying about it, and any possible misuse of govt funds or property related to it....
it is up to his wife to deal with the boinking.....I suggest the Bobbitt method be used, it is pretty much irreversible if you flush the offending part down the sewer....

I've been privileged to know many such honorable men and women. I was privileged to be raised by two of them.
Hypocrisy does not lie in advocating a high moral standard one may not always succeed in keeping, but in professing a belief one lacks, or advocating a moral code one never intended to keep.
Tarring a whole class of people with this generalization is as unfair and untrue as making racist stereotypes about a minority.

I simply feel that Mr. Sanford should resign because he basically deserted his post as a sitting governor. He went AWOL, and he lied to his aides, as well as to the Lt. Governor...telling them he was hiking in the Appalachians, when in fact he was doing the Argentina Tango with his mistress in South America!
The affair, to me, is beside the point. That is between his wife and his God and himself. But he did a complete disservice to his constinuents by disappearing as he did, and lying about it. Any governor should be fired for things like that.

I'd be more concerned with dereliction of duty, myself. There's no indication that President Clinton, for all his peccadilloes, ever neglected the duties of his office while pursuing his affairs-- and certainly never did so on the level of vanishing for a week without leaving someone else in command.
I'm all for allowing Governor Sanford to conclude his term in office, but to pretend that what he did was not considerably worse than President Clinton's trespasses is to be willfully dense-- and a partisan hack of the worst kind.
The reason Sanford is being hypocritical is because he called for Clinton to resign for an affair, and now he won't when he was having an affair. He needs to leave the office, and pull his family back together, but that's up to him.

Sanfrod needs to start thinking of how he has effected his family, and needs to pull it back together just as you said.
I think that the thing that a lot of people are ticked about as well is that he went AWOL for a week, and nobody was leading the state.
