The saga of disgraced South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford just keeps getting stranger and stranger. In a statement issued after meeting with his Cabinet, Gov. Sanford compared himself to King David while making it clear he has no plans to resign his office:
“I remain committed to rebuilding the trust that has been committed to me over the next 18 months, and it is my hope that I am able to follow the example set by David in the Bible — who after his fall from grace humbly refocused on the work at hand,” Sanford said in a statement following a meeting with his Cabinet. “By doing so, I will ultimately better serve in every area of my life, and I am committed to doing so.”
Let’s just be clear here…Mark Sanford is no King David.
