Sanford impeachment debated

Could this be the beginning of the end for South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford? Today state lawmakers begin debating an impeachment resolution. This comes after Gov. Sanford was charged with breaking South Carolina's ethics laws – thirty-seven times.

Sanford has been under fire since going AWOL in June during a secret rendezvous with his mistress in Argentina. So how can he govern with all that hanging over his head?...

Leroy Chapman, government and politics editor for "The State" newspaper, spoke to John Roberts on American Morning Tuesday.

    The decision of what happens to him should be left up to the people of South Carolina. CNN if Stanford was a liberal you would be down playing the entire story, but then you are the "most trusted name in news" or something like that.

    Are you kidding me? This guy not only failed his family he screwed over his state! He should have been out along time ago, and I do not care what party they come from!

    Who cares about an affair, he should have been fired for going AWOL.

    I think obama and his left wing radical at the White House have been far more dangerous and harmful to the American people and our way of life than some affair by Governor Sanford. Let impeachment begin at 1900 Pensylvania Ave. How many men in high office have not had affairs. Start your review among State Adjutant Generals. Power currupts.
