Let's give him a chance to at least fumble and get back up again. Being son of Turner Sr., he has had a chance to flesh out his views and defend them in a liberal household and he seems solid. Sanford and the rest are old news and are buoyed by self-interest and "other" interests.
We applaud your passion and involvement and commitment to work for those who talked the talk. However, not all of the messengers of the message liberty or otherwise, will make it to the envisioned destination. In fact, probably few do. Their delivery and results might be ineffectual and even hurtful to the cause. Their flaws, if they continue unabated, detrimental personally and professionally. The distraction becomes a turn-off from the message instead of an enlightenment. We thank them for their attempts but for those folks I say, time to hand off the baton.
The "stigma" as mentioned is ammunition and target to the opposition and Sanford's continued clueless and grasping behavior (staged beach pictures and engagement, appearances on Piers Morgan and Hannity, announcement of multiple, simultaneous desires to re-enter politics, ie., governorship and congressman...) whenever he has the spotlight does nothing to dispel it. Better he should put away his self-absorption, be happy for the 15 years he had, and perhaps groom and support someone who has his sh#T together.
Racer, Mark was just demonstrating a Narcissist's lack of empathy, impulsiveness, entitlement, "the rules don't apply to me," gimme some unearned "unconditional" love at all costs 'cause my ego demands it and my supply (Chapur) who fills my void is charmed by it. Yeah, my sons think I'm courageous too (NOT)
"She made no statement by word or deed that she was protesting the leash law." Seems to me Ms Sanford acted out of courage not entitlement, voicing her opinion on an editorial page despite the anticipated blowback. The guilt was already acknowledged; she was just asking that the punishment meet the crime, even as a repeat offender who at one time had two dogs and expensive electronic fencing.
