The Gov. Mark Sanford Story Just Gets Better
It has recently come out that South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford used South Carolina tax dollars to indulge in his extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina.
That's right, Gov. Sanford, who became the hero to the Conservative Right Wing of the Republican Party when he played to the fiscal conservatives in rejecting the Obama federal stimulus funds, has raised some very legitimate concerns and questions. After misusing his position and misappropriating tax dollars for this personal use, Gov Sanford is now in the damage control mode making statements such as, “He is going to reimburse the state for the full cost of the Argentina leg of this trip.” (Well, yea now that he has been caught!!) According to the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Sanford's airline tickets cost $8,687, and included flights to different cities in Brazil and Argentina.
I am so glad that Gov. Sanford is watching out for the tax payers of South Carolina, and of course with the hopes that he would be taking good care of the United States tax budgets. Just Like Bush and Cheney did!!
