Scott English, Mark Sanford’s chief of staff, has been trying really, really hard to make light of the sordid story distracting us all this week — the one involving this year’s official Sanford candidate for governor.
Some of his recent Tweets:
My parking space has been next to Andre Bauer’s for 7 yrs. I was forced to make this statement. Just letting the chips fall where they may.
I had to do it to protect my family. I will have no further comment (in the next 10 minutes).
To get ahead of this story, I did a fist bump w/ a member of the SC House. Inappropriate physical contact?
Frankly, I think he was much closer to the mark with this one from Monday:
Just a little bit closer and we will have hit rock bottom.
What makes him think we’re not there already, I don’t know.
