Mark Sanford Loses Another Chief Of Staff

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford is in search of his fourth chief of staff in thirteen months.

You read that right … his fourth chief of staff in thirteen months.

Holy turnover, right?  Indeed … oh, and in addition to this revolving door at the top let’s not forget the flood of recent departures from his Washington, D.C. office.

Seriously … are there any rats left on this sinking ship?  What’s gives?

From our story back in May …

Well, Sanford is insane.  And seeing as he now lacks any real substance, there’s no longer any justification for tolerating the insanity.

Yup … that about sums it up.

Sanford’s insanity and chronic narcissism – chronicled in a new book by his former speechwriter Barton Swaim – could at least be tolerated when he was voting the right way.

But now Sanford is just another crony capitalist “Republican.”  Now he does what liberal Speaker of the House John Boehner tells him to do, not what’s in the best interests of citizens and taxpayers.

From another recent piece …

Sanford – who puffed himself up as a citizen legislator – has become nothing but a corporate whore.  And a political whore.   Of course according to him, it’s all okay because he’s got Jesus on his side … and any one who dares to criticize him has problems with their soul.

And now his most trusted advisor has bailed on him …

Scott English – who has worked for Sanford on-and-off for decades – took over as his chief of staff back in January.  It was hoped English would provide some long-overdue adult supervision over the emotionally immature lawmaker – but that obviously isn’t going to happen.

As of August 10, English is escaping the insane asylum – taking a position as executive director of the American Philatelic Society.

That’s right … the stamp people (for those of you not down with philately).

“It’s an honor to join the American Philatelic Society as Executive Director,” English said in a statement released by the group.  “This organization has a rich tradition, with a dedicated staff and members who share a great passion for stamp collecting. My first priority is meeting as many members as possible in the coming months and learning how the APS can best serve them. I also want to learn how the APS can effectively partner with other organizations with similar interests.”

Good God.

We’d like to say we wish English the best in his future endeavors … but we really don’t.  He’s spent the better part of two decades being the “asshole behind the asshole,” and as much comeuppance as is due to Sanford is due to him as well.

Damn.I guess it is better to lose a chief of staff than ELECTIONS. Sanford doesn’t lose those.

We need to totally rid ourselves of the feckless, hypocritical, fakes who wear their so called faith on their sleeves, campaign using their false faith and then violate the same with lies, cheating, immoral actions, ethical violations and criminal activities.
These fakes just keep on giving and sticking it to the taxpayers and people of the country and South Carolina.

Some are in jail, some caught in illicit affairs, some plead guilty and under house arrest, some still in office to our stupidity! Everyone caught and convicted of one thing, or another.
Still awaiting Haley’s fall.

Jule July 27, 2015 at 1:27 pm

At least Sanford, did not lie blame everyone else and try to destroy their mates for catching them like Eckstrom, Peeler. These people are particularly evil and sickening.
Viers and Ravenel are just weird sickos. Well, Peeler and Eckstrom are pretty sick, evil and weird too.

I feel a little bit for ole Thad, he bought the bar-b-que bimbo those gynormous hooters, then she kicked him to the curb.
Nah, I don’t.
Would like to bat them tatas around for an hour, like a cat playing with a yarn ball!

There is more fake and plastic in Kelly, Donna and Maria than the Mattel toy Company.
Haley could use a set.
Cynthia needs a massive reconstruction.
Kathrine like the scarecrow, simply needs a brain.
Well, then again, like the tin man Donna could use a heart.
Kelly, like the lion could use some courage.

We need to cast a remake of the Wizard of Oz..
Haley,Wicked Witch of the West, only needs green paint and a wart on the nose..
Peeler, Eckstrom and Sanford could be those little monkey things, flying on T Rav’s cocaine.
Harvey, Hugh, Martin, Courson, could be those Munchkins running around aimlessly and confused.
The cast is already half set up!

Dorothy July 28, 2015 at 7:46 pm

This Wizard of OZ remake would have to be xxx rated with this bunch in it and carry a warning to viewers.
Sex, crime, drugs, video tapes, OH MY!!!!

Chump July 28, 2015 at 6:13 am

Sanford was plenty passive-aggressive pissed his wife divorced him. What a set-back in career trajectory and reputation. I’m sure he has tried to make her pay in various and insidious ways through their kids or financially or both. It’s what these disordered types do.

Holy crap! I agree with Will! I hate to wish ill fortune on anyone but Scott English is just such an incredible asshole that it is hard not to enjoy his career implosion. I guess that 20+ years of suckling at the government teet hasn’t prepared him for much in the private sector.

nitrat July 27, 2015 at 4:33 pm

I don’t know Scott English.
But, maybe, it’s not an implosion.
Maybe, he has belatedly realized that politics makes him an asshole, he’s tired of it and realized he can be a happier person if he does something else.
Whether it’s Will Folks or Tom Davis or anyone in between, given the absolute nothing that Mark Sanford is, it’s hard…well, impossible to have respect for anyone who’s ever worked for him for more than about 6 weeks.
But, to see the light that 21st century American, particularly Republican, politics is a pretty dismal way to make a living…I wish him luck.

South Carolina never disappoints when it comes to electing morons. And now that SC legislators blocked DV legislation, while leading the country in the number of men killing their wives, ex-wives, and girlfriends, Ya’ll just never disappoint.

American Philatelic Society?
Is that the same ORGANization that “9 inches” is a MEMBER of?
Don’t they have a rule against licking?

TBG always suspected as much.

Now the revolving door between government and philately has been confirmed.

God help us all!

TroubleBaby July 27, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Have seen some philately lately?

Have you been philling any holes lately?

Philandering lately?

My brother in law Phil has been late lately, what should I do?

He tells me his wife has been philating him, & that’s why he’s late lately.

TroubleBaby July 27, 2015 at 9:16 pm

“He attempted to interest a 13-year-old girl in philately”

People who surround Sanford develop a warped sense of reality. Can’t fault the guy for hanging around so long despite the abuses that Sanford dishes out. He had Stockholm Syndrome not unlike what his former wife may have developed overtime. People pleasers stick around trying to please the unpleasable. Look at Chapur “…He was the love of my life…” still trying to stay in his orbit despite the handwriting on the wall.
