For all we know maybe his wife knows but would rather be a governors wife than a divorcee.
    In reality, consensual sex isn't really the issue here. What is the issue is that the politician ran, and got elected on the pledge that he was going to be a protector of moral values. By ignoring these moral values with his own personal behavior shows that the very premise that got him elected was nothing more then a act of political fraud pulled on his supporters.

    Plus the fact that not only did he not inform his staff and where he was going, and where he could be reached, he also left his state and his position without transferring power to his back-up. Heavens forbid, if a major Terrorist incident had occurred, or natural disaster of biblical proportions had occurred, the chain of command of state authority would have collapsed...

    "the politician ran, and got elected on the pledge that he was going to be a protector of moral values."
    If sex is immoral then you are right. But if you happen to not think that sex is immoral sure he should have taken the proper steps before someone goes on vacation but lets be honest the fact that he did not transfer powers here is not the point. The fact that he had sex with someone not of his race or nationality is.

    Race also isn't an issue here... For someone who pledged to his supporters that he would protect and defend 'Christian' moral values, having sexual relations outside of wedlock (regardless of race) would be considered nearly as bad as having sexual relationships with his own daughters... The issue isn't about Sanford having relationships outside of marriage, the issue is that Sanford violated his pledge not to have sexual relations outside of marriage...

    If Sanford hadn't claimed the Republican party call to be an example of outstanding symbols of 'Christian' moral behavior, then his problems with keeping his pants on wouldn't be an issue...

    As an example, both the Govenator of California, and the Mayor of San Fransisco have had improper incidents outside of marriage, but since neither has claimed to be outstanding examples of moral behavior, this has been viewed by the public at large as just an example of their machismo expression...

    Exactly. So clearly there is a double standard in place here. You keep mentioning that he is a christian. And clearly you judge him far harsher for that. But you must rmember his wife apparently knew about his extra marital affairs. Everyone has a bottom line and hers is that she would rather be a governors wife then a 50 some divorcee which is a disicion I can respect but it does make it almost consensual. Besides if christians stopped having sex let me assure you that their numbers would quickly dwindle and the population of Earth in whole would shift dramatically. He did not have sex out of wedlock he is married. You wouldn't say a mother had a child out of wedlock even if the child belonged to a man she was not married to. Another double standard.

    This also isn't exactly true... Now what's the difference between doing something bad, and pledging not to do something bad, but doing it anyway...

    You do something bad, (well you've just done something bad...)

    You public pledge not to do something bad, but knowing you've made this pledge, decide that the rules don't apply to you, and do something bad anyway... What you've just done is to publicly demonstrate that your public word and promises are worthless... And a Governor who can't be trusted at his public word and promises is a Governor who can no longer fulfill the duties of his office... This is why so many of Sanford's former supporters is asking him to quit the position...

    An honest politician is one that when he is bought stays bought.

    It depends.
    Location. Location. Platform.

    In the US, I know most politicians are held underneth a microscope positioned alongside a Bible.

    I know that in the South or any Republican dominated area, this sort of thing is frowned upon for reasons I'll never understand.

    I know that regardless of your party, if you portray yourself as an infallible, morally correct person it looks very questionable to your constituents if you cheat on your spouse.

    But the way i see it, unless your sex life affects your job and you start screwing up, then yeah, then maybe I'd be concerned. Otherwise, what you do in the privacy of where ever does not concern me.
