I was a long time supporter of Mark Sanford. I thought he stood by his convictions and made good decisions based upon constitutional lines. But, just like Bill Clinton's case, morals matter and apparently Mark Sanford lost the bearing on his moral compass.
What is it with these politicians? Do they just get so full of power and of themselves that they think they can get away with stuff? I understand that there is a lot of infidelity out there in our world. I heard some pundit saying yesterday that upwards of 50% of men cheat (no mention of the women who cheat with them, but that is another issue altogether) and I don't know if that is a high or low estimate. But being in the public spotlight ought to make you less likely to cheat, because YOU WILL GET CAUGHT!
Too bad Mark my boy, you certainly screwed this one up because you did not have the intestinal fortitude to face up to what you thought you wanted which was at odds with what you had. You wanted it all, and now you have nothing. Greed for personal gratification. Times up pal, resign now and let the Lt Governor step in for the next 18 months.
