Meanwhile, an "impeach Sanford" rally will be held today at the State was organized by a Democratic activist, but Republicans have issued some of the more prominent calls for Sanford to step down, with the S.C. Senate Majority Leader orchestrating a letter asking for the governor's resignation June 30. Should be interesting to see how many Republicans attend, voicing those calls in a rally atmosphere that could be comprised mostly of Democrats, rather than in letters and statements to the press.
