In an interview published earlier this week in the Washington Times, Governor Mark Sanford vowed to fight on.Governor Mark Sanford recently granted an interview with the Washington Times where he compared himself with that of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in what he called baseless complaints in an ethics probe over travel and personal expenses. Sanford said, “I think I now know what Sarah may have been feeling.”
But while Gov. Palin resigned from office back in July, Sanford has vowed not to quit.
In the Washington Times interview, Sanford said he felt absolutely committed to the cause, to what God wanted him to do with his life saying, “I have got this blessing of being engaged in a fight for liberty…” and Sanford said that his “liberty” is constantly being threatened.
According to the news article, Sanford acknowledged that he was jarred by the total lack of support from fellow Republicans. The article also said that Sanford was “riding high in the state until he made a trip to Buenos Aires in June to see his lover.”
He was also quoted as saying that he told his staff a “little white lie” to conceal the trip.
