Runaway Governor

State GOP Censures Sanford

"Now is the time for healing." That's how the South Carolina Republican Party chairman described the aftermath of his party's decision to censure their governor, Mark Sanford, who left the state on a secret rendezvous with his Argentine lover two weeks ago. The vote has no bearing on Sanford's ability to remain in office. 22 members of the party's executive committee voted to reprimand Sanford; 10 called for his resignation; nine voted to support him.
