Rep. Sanford Shows Up For House Vote In Sweaty Gym Clothes

It seems no one gave freshman Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) the memo that Wednesday’s House vote was moved an hour earlier than originally expected.

So the former governor of “Appalachian Trail” fame showed up to the Speaker’s Lobby clad in a sweaty T-shirt, gym shorts and sneakers.

When asked by Roll Call if he thought he would enough time to workout before having to go to the chamber to vote on amendments to the Defense Department appropriations bill, Sanford responded, “I think that’s a fair assessment.”
