'Tempest in teapot' disservice to election

info@islandpacket.comMay 3, 2013 

We live in interesting times. The Super Bowl was months ago. Why did this Mark Sanford trespassing issue come up just weeks before the election?

Isn't the welfare of their children the important issue for the Sanfords? Where is any public comment from Jenny Sanford? It would seem that no good for any member of the Sanford family, especially the sons, will come from what appears to be a "tempest in a teapot."

Might the local newspapers have an "agenda" in all this? Heaven forbid.

I will not stay home and then complain about the outcome. I will exercise my privilege and right to vote.

Someday elections will be determined by the issues and how to best serve our nation. Someday.
