One of the websites I've been checking regularly over the last 24-plus hours is fitsnews.com. The site was founded by Will Folks, a former Mark Sanford spokesman, and blends reporting, conservative commentary and irreverence.
Today, Folks has an interesting, lengthy post on his reactions to the scandal, including a call for the governor to resign:But just as Republicans' fiscal recklessness at the national level turned America over to the "Obama wave," the consequences of Sanford's personally imprudent actions in this case would seem to dictate another unfortunate trajectory for the cause of common sense government - and the very fiscal conservatism that Sanford has devoted his political career to advancing.
By his own conduct, the governor has given his enemies just enough rope to hang him - which is why it's time to cop a plea before the deafening drumbeat for a public, political execution begins.
No man is bigger than a movement, and as much as it pains me to say it the best thing Mark Sanford can do for the reform movement in South Carolina right now is to step down.
