“I’ve been unfaithful to my wife,” Sanford said at a state capitol news conference hours after he returned to the country from a visit to his mistress in Argentina.

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.)
In response to a story in the Aug. 25, 1989, Washington Times, Frank confirmed that he hired Steve Gobie, a male prostitute, in 1985 to live with and work for him in his D.C. apartment. But Frank, who is gay, said he fired Gobie in 1987 when he learned he was using the apartment to run a prostitution service. The Boston Globe, among others, called on Frank to resign, but he refused. On July 19, 1990, the ethics committee recommended Frank be reprimanded because he “reflected discredit upon the House” by using his congressional office to fix 33 of Gobie’s parking tickets. Attempts to expel or censure Frank failed; instead the House voted 408-18 to reprimand him. The fury in Washington was not shared in Frank’s district, where he won reelection in 1990 with 66 percent of the vote, and has won by larger margins ever since.
Bill Clinton and John Edwards is two more!
Gov. Sanford at least is a better man than Bill Clinton and John Edwards who lied about their affairs! Gov. Sanford answer all the questions that the media asked him about the affair! And he apologized asap to the people were as Bill Clinton deny his affair and I don’t remember him apologizing to the people for dirtying up the Oval Office! The liberals will have a hay day with this story, but I tell you they have no room to talk…just ask John Edwards!
