Tuesday letters: Sanford critics should be quiet

May 14, 2013 

Democrats who are complaining about Mark Sanford’s election in the 1st Congressional District should remember a few things: Jenny Sanford left him instead of staying for political purposes, as one woman did. I do not remember Sanford lying about the trip after being asked about it, like some people did under oath.

Sanford did not use the state Revenue Department to attack his detractors. Sanford did not lie about a terror attack in which Americans died, to make it look like he was making the world safer.

In other words, people who think the Clintons and Obamas are fine, upstanding Americans who care only for their country should just keep their mouths shut.
