Not our father of the year

mark-sanford-03-sizedFormer Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford really has no sense.

First he disappeared while in office for days.

He said he was out hiking while he really was visiting his girl friend in Argentina.

His wife divorced him and he left office.

Now his ex-wife is accusing him of trespassing on her property earlier this year, so the national Republican Party has pulled their support for his potential political comeback.

“Mark Sanford has proven he knows what it takes to win elections. At this time, the NRCC will not be engaged in this special election,” the NRCC said in a statement.

Nice way to say it is getting as far from this guy as it can.

Sanford released a statement saying he visited his wife’s beach house without her permission to watch the Super Bowl with their son.

But the wife, Jenny Sanford, says it was part of a “pattern of entering” her home.

That’s not all – a couple of weeks go at the celebration of Sanford’s runoff election victory he pushed two of his sons on-stage.

Also standing on the stage – the Argentine girl friend who was at the middle of the sex scandal that broke up his marriage.

How awkward was it?

Just look at the poor kid in this picture.

Sanford gets our award for crappy father of the year.
