Should he resign yet?

My fav gov...since losing Palin of course!

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford took dozens of undisclosed flights on private planes since taking office in 2003 despite a state law requiring him to report who paid for the travel, an Associated Press investigation has found.

The AP discovered 35 flights Sanford took on private planes that he did not list on state ethics forms or campaign reports. The flights are noted on Sanford's official calendars, obtained by the AP through a Freedom of Information request.

State law requires elected officials to disclose gifts received in a day worth $25 or more and "anything of value" over the course of a year worth at least $200 "if there is reason to believe the donor would not give the thing of value" but for the public official's position.

  • He should have when he got caught. Unlike dems who then elect them to a second term. Or in the case of killer Kennedy, for LIFE.

  • He should have resigned. Yes Clinton did get reelected, but the American people were able to seperate a good president from a bad husband. Sanford has been a bad husband and a bad governor. Clinton never charged flights to visit his mistresses on the countries dime--Sanford did this to his state. Therein lies the difference. Clinton screwed his wife over--Sanford screwed his state over while screwing his wife over.
    As for your other comments about killers--you are always crying about leaving the past in the past. You really should practice what you preach.
    Oh, wait--sorry, I forgot. You can't! It is part of being a conservative.

  • Does it take much effort to be such a rude, hateful person sweet? I feel sorry for you.  It's obvious you don't have a very fulfilling life.

    No way, I am not letting go til he LEAVES office. Cheating was the LEAST of his offenses! and besides I want him jobless so when I pitch him my death match idea he'll bite (he'll need divorce money )


    I am hoping for a steel cage match between Sanford, Edwards, Ensign and Gingrich......at the end, whoever is left standing can show their faces every now and again. The other three must move to Iraq, for  years

    Maybe not but he did try to get all his criminal defenses paid by the public dime.
