Mark Sanford

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is the current poster boy for political redemption. He famously abandoned his duties for five days to tryst with his mistress-now-wife in her native Argentina. After the resulting fall from grace, Sanford successfully ran for Congress and now fills the seat vacated by Sen. Tim Scott.
