‘Testosterone can get you in trouble’: Congressman takes a shot … at himself?

Republican Rep. Mark Sanford may have made a joke at his own expense to make the point that not having enough women involved in health care negotiations can be a detriment.

“I’m here to tell you, sometimes that testosterone can get you in trouble,” the South Carolina representative said at a meeting between Republican leadership, Freedom Caucus members and White House officials on Thursday, CNN reported.

Perhaps he was remembering the trouble his own “testosterone” brought on with his scandalous extramarital affair in 2009, when, as the governor of South Carolina, the media discovered him to have been having a rendezvous with a woman in Argentina.

The affair was discovered after he claimed he was hiking the Appalachian Trail but was found to have been secretly meeting with a woman named María Belén Chapur, who he later became engaged to after he and his wife Jenny divorced.

It led to Sanford resigning as head of the Republican Governor’s Association.

He revived his career by winning a race to be a representative for South Carolina in 2013.

But on Thursday he did not win.

Ultimately Sanford’s efforts to merge the opposing sides through use of levity failed to achieve it’s desired result.

The bill failed the following day which led to the president blaming the Freedom Caucus, in part, for keeping Obamacare the law of the land and allowing tax dollars to continue to roll into Planned Parenthood.

It also led one member of the Freedom Caucus to become so frustrated he penned a letter removing himself from the group.
