SC Dem Chair Responds to Sanford Column

Columbia, SC- South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Carol Fowler released the following statement today in response to Governor Mark Sanford’s op-ed apologizing to the state.

“Mark Sanford’s vague apology in Sunday’s papers is fine as far as it goes, but he doesn’t say what he’s apologizing for. Turning his back on the people of SC? Abandoning his family? Dumping his responsibilities for weeks? Or 6 1/2 years of ignoring our public schools and the children in them?
When my children were small and had to say they were sorry I always made them specify what the apology was for, to be sure they knew. Does Governor Sanford know?”
