ONTD Political

South Carolina state house Republicans are meeting this weekend to discuss “what it would take to force the Republican governor out and how the process would work.” Ever since acknowledging his extramarital affair with an Argentine woman, Gov. Mark Sanford has been under fire for possibly violating state law by flying in expensive business-class seats. Sanford has thus far refused to resign from office, forcing state Republicans to consider alternative means:

House Speaker Pro Tempore Harry Cato of Travelers Rest said he expects impeachment to “dominate” discussion at this weekend’s annual House GOP Caucus retreat in Myrtle Beach. […]

“I think just because of the general nature of how this outing always works, it’s usually dominated by one or two issues and I think impeachment will be the dominant issue,” he said.

“He left the state without anyone knowing where he was,” state Rep. Greg Delleney said, adding, “That was a dereliction of duty as far as I was concerned.” The state Constitution allows officials to be impeached for “serious crimes or serious misconduct in office.”

This. THIS. You want to go boink someone who isn't your wife, fine, but when you are in charge of a state you do not just go fucking off to South America without telling SOMEONE where you're going, when you'll be back, and how to get hold of you in case the shit hits the fan!

This is the phonemail system. The GOVERNOR HOTPANTS is not available at this time. If this is a state emergency, press 1. If this is the Lieutenant Governor, press 2. If this is a constituent, press 3. If this is my wife, hang up and find your own affair.

Good-bye.
