The watchdog organization CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) filed complaints Thursday charging Republican Sens. Sam Brownback (Kan.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Jim DeMint (S.C.) and John Ensign (Nev.), as well as Reps. Mike Doyle (D-Penn.), Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), with accepting "improper gifts" from C Street in the form of way-below-market rent.
Other residents past and present did not make the list -- most notably trail-hiking Gov. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who lived in the C Street House while in Congress and helped make the place famous by seeking counseling there in the wake of his affair.

Just a silly question.....why would residents of the past make the list? Why the need to bring Sanford into it? Seems petty and trivial.
I think because he JUST left recently

He moved there to seek counseling(ie temp housing) and the LT gov was overseeing the office. ... He wasn't there for work.. Gov's of other states don't take up residence in DC..lol
