That's a swing and a miss Carol! Sanford didn't propose an amendment to promote economic development but rather to defund the Appalachian Regional Commission which was tasked with that purpose. Did he propose anything to put in its place? No.<quoted text>
You mean the Mark Sanford who pushed for an amendment to promote economic development in the underserved region of the Appalachian Regional Commission because of excessive waste and duplication and who cheated on his wife like Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy?
Guess you'd have no problem with the mayor of your city groping and tongue kissing your wife on the street and confessing he had a problem and "needed help" and would fight to keep him in office.
You are one of the reasons I fear for this country.
I never defended the mayor's actions but I am pointing out your hypocrisy for defending Herman Cain who was accused of even worse harassment and also cheated on his wife as did Newt Gingrich, Rudi Giuliani, David Vitter and John Ensign. Extra marital affairs are quite bi partisan and I don't condone them from either party but every time you bring up a Democrat who strayed from the straight and narrow I'll give you a list of Republicans who did also.
