Mark Sanford

Legislator poll on Sanford impeachment

The State newspaper asked members of the House Judiciary Committee, which would likely take the first vote on impeachment proceedings, if they think Gov. Mark Sanford should be removed from office by the General Assembly.

Only a handful of lawmakers said they had decided one way or another. Many of those who are undecided said they questioned Sanford’s conduct but were awaiting more facts and a formal investigation. Some of those undecided lawmakers have called for Sanford’s resignation. Two-thirds of lawmakers must agree in order for Sanford to be removed.
