SC Lt. Gov: Sanford Should Resign

The Lov Guv’s number two has thrown him under the bus: South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer has called on Gov. Mark Sanford to resign, becoming the most prominent state Republican to do so on Wednesday. "It is my opinion the best interest of the people of South Carolina can no longer be served by the current administration," Bauer said. "The serious misconduct that has been revealed along with lingering questions and continuing distractions make it virtually impossible for our state to solve the critical problems we're facing without a change in leadership." Later that afternoon, Sanford fired back: "I am not going to be railroaded out of this office by political opponents or folks that were never fans of mine in the first place." The governor has been beleaguered ever since it was revealed that he was having an affair with an Argentinean woman.
