COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Last week's editorial on Governor Mark Sanford drew strong responses from some of you, and I wanted to follow up. I said that the evidence revealed to date did not present a strong case for resignation or impeachment. Of course, we've yet to see what the State Ethics Commission has to say about the governor's travel and spending.
But by more than two to one, your comments favored keeping Sanford in office.
One viewer wrote, "Thank you so much for your comments. I totally agree. It is time to get back to the business of South Carolina and stop casting stones."
Another viewer disagreed, saying "I believe Governor Sanford will be ineffective and unable to do anything more for our state. Therefore, his resignation would be the best thing he can do now."
And then there was this, "Shame on you! The rule of law does not allow a bank robber to rob at least two banks before he can be sent to prison."
But there were several comments of support for my position like this, "You clearly and succinctly expressed the views of those of us who are performance-oriented as opposed to those who prefer to grandstand for the camera."
