Sanford: I Won't Resign

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford won’t be disappearing for good: He said today that he will not resign. “I remain committed to rebuilding the trust that has been committed to me over the next 18 months, and it is my hope that I am able to follow the example set by David in the Bible—who after his fall from grace humbly refocused on the work at hand,” Sanford said in a statement. “By doing so, I will ultimately better serve in every area of my life, and I am committed to doing so.” According to a poll by InsiderAdvantage, 50 percent of South Carolina voters wanted Sanford to resign, while 42 percent thought he should stay in office.
