PLEASE, will you finally get rid of him ???

WASHINGTON – South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford broke state law when he charged taxpayers for more expensive business and first-class flights, according to the chairman of the legislative committee investigating Sanford's international travel.

State Sen. David Thomas, whose budget committee investigated Sanford's flights following reports last month by The Associated Press, sent evidence to Senate leaders Monday arguing the Republican governor violated state laws requiring the cheapest travel possible.

Thomas said Sanford's more expensive flights on two state Commerce Department trips cost taxpayers $13,700 more than the economy class flights available.

Legislators can consider sanctions against Sanford ranging from demanding reimbursement to impeachment, said Thomas, R-Fountain Inn.

  • I don't think I quite get the first comment. As in are you saying Sanford and Obama are buddies? I must have misunderstood the idea that Sanford is Obama's thug.  They are on opposite sides of the political spectrum.  I do realize that Fox has several times posted by mistake that Sanford is a democrat but he is not.

  • Both Sanford and Obama are corrupt as well as Pelosi, so we should just get rid of them all.

  • I read a brief headline online that stated something to the effect that his wife moved out. I didn't read the article but I would have left several months ago when I first found out about his ongoing infidelity.
