Mark Sanford: I never cheated taxpayers…
…“The reality of our lives is if we live long enough, we’re going to fail at something. I absolutely failed in my personal life and my marriage. The one place I didn’t ever fail was with the taxpayers. If you look at my 20 years in politics, what you would see is a fairly remarkable consistency in trying to watch out for the taxpayer. The ill that’s before us as a civilization, if we don’t get our financial house in order, there will be incredible consequences for the dollar, the American way of life, all of our savings and a whole lot more.”
Sanford, who previously served in Congress, was a popular, tea party-aligned governor in 2009 when he disappeared for several days, telling his staff he went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. But he eventually admitted he was in Argentina with a woman he later described as his soulmate.
…While Sanford says the taxpayer was left unharmed, he did reimburse taxpayers for public funds used to carry him to Argentina for a trade conference in 2008, and his use of a state-owned plane was questioned. In 2010, he paid a record fine of $74,000 even while not admitting guilt.
