From Talking Points Memo:
"South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he "crossed lines" with a handful of women other than his mistress — but never had sex with them."
Oh no, he never has sex with them. Of course not. Not that anyone can prove.
"He previously announced he would reimburse the state for money spent during a government trip to Brazil and Argentina in June 2008 when he saw Chapur."
Because, whenever someone steals money from the government, all they have to do is pay it back when they're caught, and then everything is okay. If they are a Republican, that is.
This whole sick story might even have been interesting, if it weren't so predictable.
