So now they tell me that you can face charges and potentially lose elected office for using taxpayer money to get some play. Thanks for nothing, America.
Have you seen the awful things they're saying about Mark Sanford? That he flew to Argentina to meet his lover, reimbursed himself using campaign cash and went to a discount hair salon? It's not looking good for the ole' Sanman. But look, there's hope! Take a listen at this quote from the above linked story:
"We are confident that we will be able to address each of these questions, none of which constitutes findings of guilt and none of which we believe rise anywhere near to the traditional standard of impeachment," lawyer Butch Bowers said.
I'm sorry I ever doubted you, America. That is the finest work of doublespeak, nay, duckspeak, that I've heard in a long time.
Fly to another country on our dime doesn't even come close to high crimes and misdemeanors? Naw. Filter campaign cash to your own pockets isn't worthy of discussion? Nope.
Maybe we can have a Blagojevich repeat up in South Carolina. Just this time, there's better hair, thanks to that discount salon.
Never miss a local story.
