Update: Gov. Mark Sanford

Update on post dated July, 2009, "Mark Sanford: Another One Bites the Dust"

Fellow Republicans have censured South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford after he left the state last month on a secret trip to Argentina to meet his mistress. 22 members of the party's executive committee voted to reprimand Sanford; 10 called for his resignation; nine voted to support him. The vote has no bearing on Sanford's ability to remain in office.

In a statement, Sanford says he appreciates the party's position and will continue to work to earn back its trust. The governor also has repeatedly said he will serve his remaining 18 months in office.

"Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest."
Mark Twain (1835-1910)
