Tonight Mark Sanford won back his old Congressional seat in South Carolina’s 1st district. He easily defeated Elizabeth Colbert Busch whose claim to fame is her brother Stephen Colbert, the comedian who reports daily faux news broadcasts. Story here.
After news broke that Mark Stanford had been charged by his ex wife with trespassing his poll numbers declined and he was not expected to pull out a win. Stanford will appear in court on Thursday to face those charges.
Stanford is now engaged to his Argentine mistress who he met when Governor of South Carolina and lied about, claiming to hiking the Appalachian Trail when he was spending time with her in Argentina. At the time he was married with 4 young children. His wife immediately filed for divorce.
With four runs for Congress and two for Governor, Mark Stanford has never lost an election. The Low Country of South Carolina loves Mark Sanford!
