Mark Sanford Can’t Escape the Appalachian Trail
Posted at 3:53 p.m. on July 25, 2013
Rep. Mark Sanford can’t seem to escape the Appalachian Trail, even in the Speaker’s Lobby.
As HOH reported previously, Sanford wasn’t aware the House moved up Wednesday evening’s vote series, and he was caught en flagrant delit excerciso, racing to the floor in sweaty attire and borrowing a dark blazer to attend to the people’s business on the floor.
As if that wasn’t enough, someone from his own team jabbed the South Carolina Republican about one of his most famous mishaps: His trip to Argentina for an extra-marital affair with now-fiancee Maria Belen Chapur.
No one seemed to know where the then-South Carolina governor was for days, and aides were stuck telling the press he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, the birth of one of the political world’s greatest euphemisms ever.
At any rate, as Sanford showed up sweaty in athletic casual gear for Wednesday’s votes, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., yelled out, for all to hear far and wide, “Where have you been? Hiking?”
And the beat goes on.
