Sanford has apologized; now critics should lay off

December 8, 2009 

Here we go again. When will our governor's critics finally leave him alone. Are these attacks motivated by misguided vengeance or personal political ambition?

Several of Gov. Mark Sanford's loudest critics have so many skeletons in their own closets that there is no room left for clothes. Our governor made a mistake, admitted that mistake and apologized to his wife for that mistake.

Perhaps the best solution to this ongoing problem would be for Sanford to change his name to Kennedy. Then, by comparison, he would rate the title of angel.
