Writing about Rep. Mark Sanford's claim that government overspending is a "moral issue," Penny Starr stated in a June 14 CNSNews.com article that "Sanford resigned as governor of South Carolina in 2009 after he revealed that he was having an extra-marital affair."
That's false. Sanford did not resign, and he finished out his term in January 2011. He was censured by the South Carolina legislature after impeachment efforts failed.
UPDATE: The entire paragraph containing Starr's false claim has since been removed, which now means that the article no longer contains a reference to Sanford's extramarital affair beyond Sanford's only vague references to "failures." CNS also failed to alert its readers that the article was altered from its original publication or formally issue a correction or apology.
