S.C. Drops Sanford Impeachment

Mark Sanford lives another day: A seven-member South Carolina House subcommittee voted Wednesday to drop efforts to impeach Gov. Sanford. Five members have announced how they will vote: Four will vote against impeachment; one will vote for it. Public Policy Polling points out that Sanford, with a 36 percent approval rating, is still more popular than several of the country’s other governors, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Paterson, and Ed Rendell.
