Disgraced former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is running for office again and may win. Why do we rehire people who have made grave errors while doing important jobs that affect many people?
We don’t generally rehire disgraced airline pilots or disgraced doctors, but we routinely rehire disgraced politicians. Perhaps it is because we simply don’t really understand that elected officials hold very important positions and their actions can and do affect the lives of all of us. Perhaps that is why we have the country we deserve, based on our own actions.
