When Elizabeth Colbert Busch criticized former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford for his well-publicized extra-marital affair, he wasn’t hearing it.
“When we talk about fiscal spending and we talk about protecting taxpayers it doesn’t mean you take that money we saved and leave the country for personal purpose,” Colbert Busch said during the first and only debate for the special election in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district.
Sanford, of course, famously disappeared for six days when he was governor, with his staff claiming he was walking the Appalachian Trail. It was later revealed that he had traveled to Argentina to visit his lover.
In response, Sanford awkwardly pretended to not hear Colbert Busch.
“She went there Governor Sanford,” the moderator said.
“I couldn’t hear what she said, repeat it I’m sorry,” he said, and then pivoted to talking about the sequester.
