Especially if the former employee who had scammed you had another court case pending against him for other criminal acts?

South Carolina did just that yesterday.

Mark Sanford, disgraced former Governor and a confessed liar and thief, won an election yesterday. Tomorrow he will stand in court to answer for his further crimes of stalking and criminal trespass. That did not matter to the voters, who cast their ballots for him in spite of his criminal activities.

If one were running a taco truck, it is a fair bet that one would not make such a hiring decision. But handing over the keys to an entire Congressional district? Sure, why not? That is logic, Carolina style.

On behalf of all of the voters from Ohio and Florida, this blogger would like to say “thank you” to the voters of Sourh Carolina’s First District; you’ve proven yourselves to be an even bigger joke than us.

Mark Sanford took another hike recently: he was trespassing at his ex-wife’s house, and got caught. She caught him sneaking out, using his cell phone as a flashlight. No word on what he was doing in her house, or who he did it to. Or how often he has done it before and not been busted.

Not everyone who trespasses is a pervert, of course (after all, be might have been stealing something instead), but we have reason to wonder in his case. You may remember Markie as the disgraced former governor who betrayed his oath of office, lied to people, and cheated on his wife (all on the taxpayer’s dime). So he has already demonstrated a disregard for the rule of law, and a penchant for out-of-bounds sexual activity.

This writer has always seen Sanford as a crooked, hypocritical, lying cheat: a typical politician, in other words. But sneaking around your ex-wife’s house in the middle of the night? People, that is really, seriously creepy behavior. The sort of thing we associate with flashers, child molesters, and other sex-related criminals.

The only thing more troubling than this Peeping Mark’s behavior is the large number of people who plan to vote for him in a few days. That, friends, is some seriously sick thinking.
