Colbert-Busch Has Personal Problems, Too

When it comes to personal drama, former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford isn’t alone … plenty of people have had relationships go bad. In fact Sanford’s Democratic opponent in next month’s special election for the U.S. Congress – former six-figure taxpayer-funded bureaucrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch – falls into that category, too. How do…

When it comes to personal drama, former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford isn’t alone … plenty of people have had relationships go bad.

In fact Sanford’s Democratic opponent in next month’s special election for the U.S. Congress – former six-figure taxpayer-funded bureaucrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch – falls into that category, too. How do we know this? Well we wrote about some of her issues in early January – before Sanford made the GOP runoff (or claimed his party’s nomination for South Carolina’s first congressional district).

What didn’t we know? That Colbert-Busch’s drama earned her a brief jail sentence …

Wait … what?

That’s right. Buried at the tail end of a report from Schuyler Kropf of The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier, we find the following nugget …

(Colbert-Busch) was granted a divorce from her first husband, Robert W. Legare, in August 1987. Court records show the couple continued to fight in court over unpaid child support, insurance and Legare’s visitation rights.

In November 1988, Family Court Judge Mendel Rivers Jr. issued an order saying they had “failed miserably” to resolve their differences in the children’s best interest and ordered them both confined to the Charleston County jail for 24 hours.

Their divorce file shows their issues calmed down after 1989, and she married Claus Busch four years later.

Hmmmm …

We’re more than willing to give Colbert-Busch the benefit of the doubt in all this. After all her first ex-husband was on America’s Most Wanted … so it’s safe to say there was an elegant sufficiency of crazy on his side of that marriage (sort of like there’s an elegant sufficiency of bitterness on the other side of Sanford’s first marriage).

And in fairness to her these issues date back to the Reagan administration … not earlier this year.

Having said that, it does seem to explain why Colbert-Busch’s campaign failed to issue a comment on Sanford’s “No Trespassing” scandal last week.

And at the end of the day all of this is noise, too. All that matters (or should matter) is how these candidates are going to vote if elected to the U.S. Congress …

LULU is a fine person. I loved her dearly back in the late eighties and found her to be hardworking, smart/intelligent and driven to be successful. A Hugo did us in but nonetheless I loved her then and do to this day. Her jerk ex-husband who lived in the DC area then, tried unsucessfully to hurt, defame and otherwise hurt her by trying to disrupt her life and that of her children. MY greatest pride was supporting her as she wove through the judicial system to bring this rotten SOB to justice and get him jailed for his failure as a father to support his children. He was more content to hurt her and cared little about taking care of his children. She strived during that time to educate herself, care for her children and to follow a path to success with determination and engaged in the never ending quest to overcome her plight in life. Her beliefs and willingness to put herself out there, will serve well her political pursuits to find a better way forward for this district and its people. Liberal she is not, but inventive and willing to seek new avenues to different outcomes that hopefully will help us in this district. I have missed her greatly, but take resolve in the fact that she is made of the right stuff and will represent this district with aplomb and grace.

AND that he was later convicted of a Felony (Securities Fraud) and even was on Americas Most Wanted…I will go with her, because he is obviously not a nice guy. HE ultimately had to pay $1Million for his part in it.

You forgot to mention how Colbert-Busch’s ugly divorce resulted in her dereliction of duty to the people she served. Surely she must have disappeared for a week without telling staffers where to find her while she skipped the country at taxpayer expense? I mean, if you’re going to draw a moral equivalence, surely you have to point out how her “personal problems” impacted anyone other than herself the way your boy Sanford’s did. Judge Rivers didn’t seem to be too concerned about the welfare of the children when he sentenced both parents to 24 hours in the clink, so it looks like it’s up to you to demonstrate how this is even remotely comparable to what Sanford did to the people of South Carolina.

Nice try, though.

Mark paid a fine of $74,000 for questionable expenses from a $6 million budget. Those questionable expenses totaled, $2,940.00 He paid $74k to make the political witch hunt and smear go away. Because that’s all that was. And seriously, in my world, a person with a cell phone is never unreachable. Do you really think noone was able to reach Sanford? Really?? That’s just niave. How then did his staff tell him that his enemies were skewering him and he’d better get back to SC tout suite, which he did. I didn’t realize that as a government official you were not entitled to a little time off, ie, Obama being unreachable as he played golf with Tiger Wood. You are being a useful idiot and I know that’s not what you want to be, now is it? Jail, really?? How interesting. Why do you suppose the Sanford campaign is not exploiting that. Could it be Mark wants to win on the issues?

The absence of Governor Sanford was first reported by Jim Davenport of the Associated Press.[38][39] Lieutenant Governor André Bauer announced that he could not “take lightly that his staff has not had communication with him for more than four days, and that no one, including his own family, knows his whereabouts.”–

What is the point of this story? If it did anything for me, it has motivated me to donate to her campaign.

In the end, the only thing that matters is how they vote when elected. Sanford is a reliable conservative with emphasis on fiscal matters. Busch is a Pelosi progressive who supports union thuggery and taxing . I know where I am voting.

Wow, nothing in your post is true, except the way you’re voting. Says something about you, and it’s certainly not positive.

I’m confused……Why is Sanford’s ugly divorce newsworthy and a reflection on his overall character, but Colbert Busch having the good judgement to marry a man on the Most Wanted List AND serve time in prison because of the nastiness of such a divorce just slinging mud. Seems like ECB’s indiscretions are much worse, to actually have a judge slap her in jail…..YIKES! Mark’s divorce is bitter, but at least he’s managed to stay out of the pokey. Seems to me that their divorces should just cancel each other out and we should get onto the issues facing our country.

Sanford was the problem in his marriage. Colbert Busch was not the problem in hers. So she married a felon – – SHE didn’t engage in any felonies and she didn’t stay married to him, either.

You’re calling 24 hours both parties spent in jail on a contempt charge (for not resolving problems with their divorce) a jail term? Any judge could do that with some of their divorce clients, but most don’t. She didn’t commit any crimes, or even misdemeanors, and it was 25 years ago. Wow, sure hope you’ve never had a parking ticket. You probably think that’s equivalent to being on death row.

Sometimes I LOVE letting someone else do my research. To think you have to dig back TWENTY-FIVE years to find a problem with Elizabeth Colbert Busch. Wow. you have helped me!

@bogart Well said! It’s pathetic to see Sanford, sorry excuse for a husband and father, run for office. He and John Edwards should form a club called “stupid men do stupid things!”

Busch 45.2% Sanford 54.3% a 9 point difference with a pretty good turnout for a special election, 31%. Sanford is in the House, God’s in His Heaven and all’s right with the world. Couldn’t be happier.
