Sanford spokesman: ‘Governor has no interest in Bauer sexuality, is focused on H1N1 preparedness.’
Governor Sanford on Jake Knotts letter allegations:
“This letter is simply wrong – and in that regard, as bizarre as many of the other claims and attacks of recent weeks. Some have even argued this indeed points to an obsession with slandering anyone who tries to change the “good ol’ boy” system of politics in Columbia.
South Carolina is facing serious challenges, and the Governor is dedicated to addressing these challenges alongside other members of the legislature committed to the same. We have a state capital with too much spending, too little transparency, and as shown by this letter, at times too many political attacks.”
Governor Sanford on N1H1 and SC Preparedness:
“We’d first urge caution and diligence with regard to any potential spread of the H1N1 virus in South Carolina. On the personal and indeed family level, all of our individual actions – from washing hands to covering coughs – can in large part help halt the spread of this flu in our communities. That said, I will be meeting with experts at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control later today to specifically map out a plan for stage government’s role in a response, and indeed more importantly, for our preparation and prevention of H1N1 this coming flu season.”
