Hypocrisy: Sanford Edition

Mark Sanford (R), current governor of South Carolina, continues to have an amazing year. In addition to vacationing in Argentina with a woman not his wife (or was it hiking in the mountains?), it appears that Mark Sanford has been getting quality travel for quite a while.

Essentially, while in office, Governor Sanford decided that in addition to being morally conservative (like respecting marriage) he should also be fiscally conservative. So he got a budget haircut.

That cost nearly $1300 to fly to. Nice.

In addition to misusing the SC Government Jet for budget haircuts, he used to ferry himself and family around, and visit partisan GOP conventions. Yet another example of the extreme hypocrisy evident among politicians.
