Colbert’s Sis Runs in SC

Stephen Colbert’s sister, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, is running as a Dem for the House seat Tim Scott gave up when SC Gov. Nikki Haley appointed him to the Senate to fill Jim DeMint’s seat.  DeMint left to make a million bucks at the Heritage Foundation.

Former GOP Gov. Mark Sanford, famed hiker and adulterer, has announced that he’s running for the Republican nomination to that seat, which he held before he ran for governor.  He’s also planning to marry his Argentine mistress this summer.

I guess Colbert-Busch can count on her brother to write as many Appalachian Trail jokes as she wants.
