A Craigslist swap: Our governor for your stimulus cash

Update: The listing was pulled, so I've pasted it below.

Hey, other states. A South Carolinian has an offer for you on the Charlotte Craigslist: If you think Sanford's got some great ideas, we'll swap him to you for your stimulus cash.

Read more stories on this subject in our Mark Sanford topic page.Go check out the offer.

It's downright clever -- and to be perfectly honest, I like it a lot more than a tea party with no tea.

Oh, and if you'd like to round out your weekly dose of Sanford lampooning, check out The Charleston City Paper's weekly cartoon.

Thanks to Wolfe Reports for digging this one up.


Here in South Carolina we have a governor who wants to turn down the stimulus funds for education. We are not happy about this, but, heck, apparently there are people out there who admire this guy.

So, if you and your state want this guy, you give us your stimulus money and we’ll give you Mark Sanford.

This deal is contingent on the following:

- A majority of the voters in South Carolina must agree that they'd rather have stimulus funds than Mark Sanford (and that's practically a given); and
- A majority of the voters in your state must agree that they would rather have Mark Sanford than their stimulus funds. (That one’s up to you.)

Please let us know when you have held a referendum on this matter. The Governor will go to the bidding state with the most stimulus money offered.
