Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) reportedly issued a warning to lawmakers before House leaders pulled the Republican healthcare bill.

Sanford took note that only men had spoken so far during a meeting Thursday night between White House officials, House leadership and House Freedom Caucus members, CNN reported late Saturday.

"I'm here to tell you, sometimes that testosterone can get you in trouble," Sanford said, according to sources familiar with his remarks.
Sanford was reportedly alluding to an extramarital affair that led to his resignation as chairman of the Republican Governor's Association in 2009.
