You probably saw the news last week that Jenny Sanford has moved out of the governor's mansion in South Carolina. Today, the Associated Press releases an investigative piece compilining Gov. Mark Sanford's many problems, pointing out that he violated state rules by using official aircraft for personal and campaign use.
Here's one example:
On March 10, 2006, a state plane was sent to pick up Sanford in Myrtle Beach and return him to Columbia, the state capital, at a cost of $1,265 -- when his calendar showed his only appointment in Columbia was "personal time" at his favorite discount hair salon. He had flown to Myrtle Beach on a private plane and attended a county GOP event.
That's more than a John Edwards coiffure!
