A South Carolina House panel is holding a hearing today on the pending impeachment of Mark Sanford. So far not much has come out of it, but I did just get this in my inbox:
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Embattled SC Gov. Mark Sanford faces 37 ethics charges he broke travel, campaign funding laws.
I’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford faces ethics charges he broke state laws more than three dozen times by violating rules on airplane travel and campaign money, according to details of the allegations released Monday.
It’s up to the state attorney general to decide whether to file criminal charges. Sanford’s lawyers have claimed the allegations involve minor and technical aspects of the law.
So we could be looking at an actual criminal trial against the once future face of the GOP.
