S.C. Gov Faces 37 Ethics Violation Charges

http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1942518-2,00.html

This article discuss the ethical violations Gov. Mark Sanford is accused of in relation to an affair he was having with a Brazilian women. Other violations include using state aircraft for use in unoffical business and converting contribution money to personal use or acconts. The author does a good job of describing the Governor’s infractions and possible consequences of those.

Dereliction of duty was the main concern of four GOP lawmakers who sited this as the main reason why Sanford should be removed from office. I agree with these officials, Sanford should be removed becase he left his post as governor without informing the deputy govenor or his staff. If something came up that called for his attention and a search party was sent in to the App. mountains to locate him they would not be able to find him. So to me the ethical issue is not weather he cheated or the money he used to conduct this affair- I seriously dobut the govenor needed to steal from his contributions to conduct his affair considering his families wealth. The issue is that he had a real ethical obligation to always make himself available for the state or at the very least let his staff know where he was at all times.
