Sanford impeachment panel to meet

  • Follow Latest News

COLUMBIA — South Carolina lawmakers could be ready to decide whether a measure to impeach Gov. Mark Sanford moves forward.

The subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee is meeting Monday. If the panel approves a resolution calling for Mr. Sanford's ouster, the full committee could debate the measure next week.

The panel is also expected to release additional information received from several state officials. Lawmakers had requested answers about how Mr. Sanford communicated with his office during a five-day absence in June.

Mr. Sanford shocked the state when he returned, revealing a yearlong affair with a woman in Argentina. He will face several dozen state ethics charges on travel and campaign reimbursements during a hearing expected next year.

Sanford has ended any chance

Sanford has ended any chance of reelection and any further assaults are just wasted effort. He'll leave office after the next election and any effort to impeach him will only endanger the position of most state congressmen. This won't happen. This meeting is just for show. No amount of effort by the AP will change that.

Leave impeachment alone!

Leave impeachment alone! Sanford and the legislature hurt themselves the most if he stays. We need to expose hypocrisy and this is dong the job.
