Mark Sanford, Dead Man Walking

Staff Pick

Recognizing that his criticism of President Donald Trump may cost him in the long run, Congressman Mark Sanford took things in a dark direction during a February interview with Politico that detailed the South Carolina politician right down to his navy blue Crocs. “I’m a dead man walking,” he told Tim Alberta in a marathon interview set in Sanford’s D.C. office. “If you’ve already been dead, you don’t fear it as much. I’ve been dead politically.” That’s some pretty real talk coming from a lawmaker who’s had his share of controversy over the years. Maybe Sanford’s candid nature and willingness to stand up to the president will be enough to grant him a reprieve. —Dustin Waters
