South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is facing new allegations of travel improprieties, but Chris Good of the Atlantic explains some of the obstacles to impeachment:

Impeachment may not be the likeliest scenario. The state legislature is out of session, and it won't come back until January. It could reconvene at the agreement of the Speaker of the House and the president pro tempore of the Senate, but that looks a bit murky, as the resolution that adjourned the legislature in May lists the reasons it can return before January, and impeachment isn't one of them.
