House lawmakers likely to censure Sanford today (update: censured)

Update December 16:

While a S.C. House Judiciary Committee voted 16-8 to not proceed with impeachment of Gov. Mark Sanford they voted 24-0 to proceed with censuring him.

The censure is little more than a "bad boy" gesture.

The Post and Courier has a nice rundown on the development and Sanford's reaction to the news.

Those following closely will note that this is not the first time Sanford has faced censure, and, no, I'm not talking about the divorce papers.

First reporting:

Although he dodged the impeachment bullet, Governor Mark Sanford hasn't been cleared for greener pastures quite yet.

House lawmakers convene today to approve a measure that will censure Sanford for his five-day June disappearance and for allegedly using state resources to facilitate an extramarital affair.

The State has the story as well as live video from the State House which begins streaming at 10 a.m.
