King David and the Argentine Firecracker

Can the Mark Sanford “affair” get any crazier? I mean spouting Bible verses to justify making booty calls…
On two continents!
Sanford has said he would pay back an undisclosed amount for the nine-day trip to Brazil and Argentina for which taxpayers paid $12,000 last year. That includes $8,687 for Sanford’s plane ticket, and $453 in lodging. A spokeswoman for the Commerce Department said Friday that initially plans were made to only visit Brazil, but Sanford asked for extra meetings in Argentina.
Sanford said the trip was legitimate but he put the agency in an awkward spot “based on what I did in terms of eating dinner down there.”
Didn’t they just send Kwame Kilpatrick (and his Honey) ex-Mayor of Detroit to jail for the same thing? Why exactly is Sanford getting special consideration?

As to that “Devil made me do it!” thing – Here, Sanford compares himself to the biblical King David -

King David was not only messing around with Bathsheba…

He had 10 wives. You think a mea culpa to one pissed off wife is bad…

Damn!

As to politicians and Argentine women – there is a precedent. Of course the last guy wound up with his Argentine love interest taking a dip in the Tidal Basin to escape the police…
