Corrupt politicians and the SC governor

Why is this stuff so hard for politicians to do? I am really glad a fellow Republican is calling for this governor to resign, especially since I saw on Fox News that there are reports that the governor used tax money for some of his visits to see his mistress.

SC GOP leader wants unfaithful gov's resignation

By JIM DAVENPORT, Associated Press Writer Jim Davenport, Associated Press Writer – 16 mins ago
COLUMBIA, S.C. – A top South Carolina Republican leader says philandering Gov. Mark Sanford should resign and practice the philosophy he's preached of holding GOP leaders accountable. Glenn McCall is one of the state's two national representatives to the Republican National Committee. He's also a county party chairman and said Thursday that party members want Sanford out.

McCall says Sanford repeatedly has said party leaders should be held accountable for not upholding the GOP's principles. And McCall says the married father of four should be held to the same standard.

The governor returned Wednesday from an international trip to see his mistress in Argentina. Hours later he publicly revealed that he's been having an affair for the past year.


Why didn't the Democrats do this when that guy from Louisiana (Jefferson is his name I think) got caught with a bunch of money in his freezer? We have clear corruption and lying by Jefferson and infidelity and lying, with the possibility of corruption, from the governor and only 1 politician calls for the governor to resign?

I sure hope we finally get some decent people into office. I really think term limits for all state and hoigher offices needs to happen so we can get a handle on this corruption.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

Politicians. I don't think you can trust any of 'em further than you can throw them. Regardless of the party.

Fixed.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

You would think that each time one of these guys get taken down for having a prostitute/opposite sex/mistress the ones who have not been caught would stop. But nooooooo, they just keep on keeping on!
