The Confessional Campaign

Mark Sanford's (R) congressional bid "is equal parts political campaign and confessional tour," Politico reports.

"The disgraced ex-South Carolina governor is back on the trail seeking forgiveness for the sins that caused his political career to collapse in spectacular fashion four years ago: The mysterious days-long disappearance, the lies about hiking the Appalachian Trail and the extramarital affair with an Argentine woman that splintered the Republican's picture-perfect family and shattered his presidential aspirations."

Said Sanford: "I'm not in any way unaware of how I've let you down. I'm not in any way unaware of my well-chronicled failings as a human being. But I am equally aware that God forgives people who are imperfect."
