South Carolina GOP Heavyweights Call For Sanford To Resign

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Republicans, South Carolina

Amid fresh revelations that Sanford crossed a physical line with more women than his previously acknowledged Argentine affair, Republicans in South Carolina are letting the embattled Governor know publicly (and privately) that he should get with the program and scram.

From The State:

On Wednesday afternoon, Senate President Pro Tempore Glenn McConnell became the latest — and one of the most significant — members of the S.C. legislature to say the governor should consider stepping down after admitting to an affair. [...]

Ten Republican state senators have asked the governor to step down, while others say they are leaning in that direction. The Associated Press is reporting that 14 Republican state senators are supporting a resignation, which is a majority of the 27 GOP members.

Yes, but did they hear Sanford’s King David defense?

It. Is. Over.

    He wants to be forced out. He wants out of his marriage, and out of South Carolina. H’s just too big a puss to make the decision himself. He doesn’t want to have to take the full responsibility himself.

    Jesus what a douche. His wife should stab him in the neck.

  2. Tully Says:

    I’ll skip endorsing the suggestions, but I think Michael is essentially correct. Sanford shows the signs of Imposter Syndrome combined with classic mid-life crisis. He knows he should leave office, but to resign would be too active a move for him.

    Time to move on, Mr. Sanford. Pols screwing around is nothing new, and it always leaves a bad taste. It’s not the hypocrisy, as some would say to excuse the philandrers of their own side. It’s the repeated violation of sacred oath that indicates your word can never be trusted again.

    badadatada, i’m lovin it.

    This dude is delusional, and Michael is right (well, maybe not on the neck-stabbing bit, but I’ve got room to negotiate on this one). He’s that guy who acts like an a-hole so his girlfriend will break up with him, just to spare him the perceived bad-guy status. He’s no David; not even a Saul.
