Exactly the same, only different.

In a statement declaring that he does not intend to resign, Gov. Mark Sanford compared his story to that of King David. Not the murdering and raping parts of that story, presumably. Just the part where David said he was sorry, and then got to continue being king while everyone else acted as if nothing had ever happened.

I understand that the guy doesn't need to resign because he had an affair (though that alone has led to plenty of other resignations). But why isn't there more discussion about his leaving the country repeatedly, for extended periods of time, without telling anyone, and using taxpayer money to do so? I'm pretty sure that's grounds for resignation.
