Mark Sanford’s Sinking Ship Goes National




|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford (a.k.a. “the Luv Gov,” “Congressman TMI”) is back in the national news.

And not in a good way …

The latest rat to scurry from Sanford’s sinking ship – his longtime confidante and most recent chief of staff Scott English – has drawn the attention of Washington, D.C. “social anthropologist” Kate Bennett.

Specifically, Bennett has caught on to the fact Sanford has lost “his fourth chief of staff in 18 months.”  To a stamp collecting club, too.

“The buzz on the Hill is that it’s hard to stay loyal to someone who’s exposed his staff to so much unsavory publicity,” Bennett wrote of English’s departure.

Wait … is she talking about his girl problems?  Or his ideological fellating of liberal U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner?  Or that new book revealing what a total jerk-off he is?

Hmmm …

From Bennett’s story …

”It sounds to me like Mark Sanford has joined the Betty Sutton Terrible Bosses Caucus,” says one former congressional staffer, referring to the former Ohio congresswoman who went through a large number of staffers. As for English’s departure, another insider says it’s likely the result of working in a Congressional office “that hasn’t exactly been taken seriously by anyone on the Hill.”

Ouch …

Translation?  Sanford’s office is a joke – meaning when residents of the first congressional district need their concerns taken seriously in Washington, D.C., they are S.O.L.

We were the first outlet to break the news of English’s departure … and more importantly the “how” behind the story.

And while English refuses to speak to us, he did offer Bennett a quote …

I have had a long and somewhat storied career and I’m now looking forward to using my college history degree; stamp collecting is a means to that end.

Wait … what?

A “long and storied career?”

Who in the hell does this guy think he is?  And seriously: What sort of “long and storied career” winds up at a stamp collecting club?

Sheesh …

Sounds to us like Sanford’s chronic narcissism has grown increasingly contagious …
