As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by LA Times:

Mark Sanford blew up his marriage and became a national laughingstock when he sneaked off his job as South Carolina governor for a tryst with his Argentine lover. After he forsook his presidential ambitions and spent time in political purgatory, voters forgave Sanford’s trespass and, in 2013, elected him their representative in Congress.

But on Tuesday, Sanford was tossed from office by his Republican constituents for committing a far graver sin: criticizing President Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

“If you’re a Republican member of Congress who wants to speak out against Trump, you have a couple of choices,” said David Wasserman, who handicaps House races nationwide for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “Retire or lose your next primary.”

Reuters reports:

The result is likely to be a cautionary tale for other Republicans considering questioning Trump’s personal or policy choices, even when the president strays from long-held party principles on issues like free trade and federal debt.

“It’s Trump’s party now. If you criticize the president, you will face the wrath of the Trump voter,” said Republican strategist John Feehery, a former congressional aide.
