No wonder Democrats like her so much.
Democratic Congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert-Busch may not have served in Congress, but she has a record.
Thus far South Carolina’s topsy-turvy first congressional district special election has been a referendum on the personal life of former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford. Dominating the headlines? His 2009 fall from grace as well as the more recent trespassing allegations leveled against him by his ex-wife, former S.C. First Lady Jenny Sanford.
Democrats want voters to focus on Mark Sanford’s transgressions so they won’t notice Elizabeth Colbert-Busch’s criminal past.
Fits News reported:
The great ‘undiscovered country?’ His Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch (who to her discredit has gone to some lengths to inhibit said discovery) has a record.
The Democrat apparently wants voters to elect her, before they find out what she believes,” Breitbart’s Mike Flynn recently wrote.
Anyway, as we noted in a post last month Sanford isn’t the only candidate in this race with personal drama.
Colbert-Busch was also involved in a messy divorce, one that landed her in jail on contempt of court charges in 1988. Now – just days before she and Sanford face voters in an extraordinarily close race – a mug shot of Colbert-Busch’s 1988 arrest has surfaced.
