Monday letters: Sanford must play by rules

April 29, 2013 

It appears that Mark Sanford really doesn’t get it: The rules are the same for him as for other people. One doesn’t get to take off work for five days without consequence. Well, he did sort of get away with that one.

But one at least ought not ignore a restraining order from the wife he betrayed. I applaud Jenny Sanford for having the courage of her convictions and not allowing Mark to get away with this; it would have been easier to just ignore it. I hope the voters of the 1st Congressional District will not vote this self-entitled man back into the public life.
