Possible confusion with Andre Bauer, whom he resembles physically?

This Leonard Pitts column has the quote from Bauer right after a quote from Ryan.

Total sidetrack but this thread reminded me of Mark Sanford the governor who disappeared and it turned out rather than being on a hike somewhere was really in South America with his mistress. I wondered what ever happened to him. I am somewhat dismayed to learn he is a congressman now. I guess virtue is it's own reward and a lying hound dog gets to go to congress .

Whoever said it, the article made me sick to my stomach. I'm starting to be frightened by some of these politicians. Actually frightened. They have so much power, and so much contempt for the people who give them this power. Thank goodness at least this one seems to be out of office now.
