The best word to describe former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford? Embarrassment.
Sanford embarrassed the people of South Carolina when he mysteriously disappeared over Father’s Day weekend in 2009. He embarrassed his colleagues in state government and was censured when he couldn’t perform his official duties as governor. He embarrassed his political supporters and donors by being AWOL for days. He embarrassed his wife and family when it was revealed that he was “missing” because he was having an extramarital affair with María Belén Chapur, a citizen of Argentina.
We call BS on endorsements like this. Endorsing a sleaze ball like Sanford just perpetuates low expectations in American politics.
Of course there are better alternatives to people like Sanford. But until conservatives support candidates with personal integrity, the American people will continue to suffer with substandard, immoral, low-character scofflaws like Mark Sanford running the country.
