Dem group rips Sanford for his affair in final ad

"I used to be for Mark Sanford, but not anymore. He skipped town to be with his mistress on Father's Day. Sanford even asked his wife for permission to have the affair and wasted our taxpayer dollars on himself," says South Carolina Republican Jennifer Stark in the ad. "I really was disappointed when I heard the extent to which he'd betrayed our trust. I was mortified, angry, embarrassed, betrayed. I'm a Republican, but Mark Sanford just doesn't share our values."

The ad is the latest in a deluge of spending from Democratic groups against Sanford in his House race against Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch. The House Majority PAC has largely focused on Sanford's misdeeds, but this is the most explicit attack to date on his character.
