Congressman Mark Sanford is a man of his word.
Sanford has an impeccable voting record. As a Republican in S.C., he is not afraid to promote the libertarian philosophy of low taxes, less government and individual freedom. Sanford was named “Leader of Liberty” by AFP this year for scoring a perfect score of 100%.
But what impresses me most about Sanford is that he took the time to respond to my question regarding the classified 28 pages in the 9/11 report.
Back in August, I reported on Congressmen Massie and Jones’ resolution, H Res. 428 and their call for more co-sponsors.
Kentucky Republican Congressman Thomas Massie said that U.S. citizens should have the right to read the 28 redacted pages from a report investigating the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Appearing on The Glenn Beck Program, he said there will be “anger, frustration, and embarrassment when these 28 pages finally come out.”
After the call to action from Massie, I reached out to my South Carolina Congressmen.
The only positive response I received was from Congressman Mark Sanford.
In August, I asked Sanford if he was planning to read the 28 pages? He replied, “absolutely.”
Congressman Sanford treated me with respect and took my request serious. Not only did he take the time to read the 28 pages, he went a step further and became a co-sponsor on 9/10/2014.
That type of action is rare in Washington.
His fulfilled promise meant a lot to me and I’m sure it means a lot more to the 9/11 families.
I am proud that Mark Sanford is our Congressman in South Carolina.
