[ The Greenville News: "Sanford's pig caper raises a stink"]

Gov. Mark Sanford brought live pigs into the House chamber Thursday to make a point about pork barrel spending but ended up with a bipartisan firestorm hot enough for a barbecue.
"Insulting" and "childish," said House Speaker David Wilkins, R-Greenville. "This is beneath the dignity of the Governor's Office, and I am embarrassed for him."
Minority Leader James Smith, D-Columbia, said, "I don't know if (Sanford) has any credibility or reputation left that gives him any ability to lead."
Adding insult to injury, one of the pigs promptly defecated on the marble floor of House lobby after Sanford put them down.
"Unfortunately, they weren't housebroken," Wilkins said. . . .
Joe Erwin, state Democratic Party chairman, said "it should be crystal clear that we need a change in leadership in Columbia."
He added that "it is unfortunate that Sanford's spokesman, Will Folks, actually had to clean up the pig poop from the marble floors of the Statehouse today. However, in some ways, it is appropriate since Folks has to clean up behind this governor on a regular basis."
