New Chair of Congressional Adultery Caucus
Disgraced Former Governor Mark Sanford, noted Republican adulterer, has defeated comedian Steven Colbert’s sister and is the new Representative of South Carolina’s First Congressional District. He held that office once before, then became the Palmetto State’s governor and secretly ran off to Argentina with his mistress, telling aides he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Sounds like a good candidate for the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Mark Sanford Bound for the Capitol via the Appalachian Trail

Disgraced Former Governor Mark Sanford, noted Republican adulterer, has won a primary runoff election and is now the Republican candidate for South Carolina’s First Congressional District. He held that office once before, then became the Palmetto State’s governor and secretly ran off to Argentina with his mistress, telling aides he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. Sounds like a good candidate for the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

He has to win the general election first. Already a figure of ridicule, he’ll have to defeat comedian Steven Colbert’s sister. Really.

Mark Sanford's Path to Congress

Disgraced Republican adulterer and ex-Governor Mark Sanford plans to run for Congress, but his path will be steeper than the Appalachian Trail. For one thing, his ex-wife may enter the race, and she has a lot more good will. On the other hand, Mr. Sanford has lots more experience in foreign affairs.

Book Reports

 South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford attended Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, the annual shindig thrown by his C Street pals. He took the official state airplane, of course. Fellow adulterer John Ensign was also in the congregation.

The Governor may have spend a day with the Good Book, but Friday is the release date of another publication, one written by his estranged wife, Jenny Sanford. First reviews describe Mrs. Sanford’s memoir, Keeping Faith, as honest and dignified, traits not shared by her philandering husband.
