News reports did not give the name of the dove hunting operation in Argentina where Sanford and his state's trade delegationplanned to blast away doves. Instead, reports focused on Sanford romantic and financial deceptions. "He connived a way to use the taxpayers' money to get to see his 'soul mate,' as he calls her," said State Sen. John M. "Jake" Knotts Jr. (R). "There was no reason to go to Argentina except to waste the taxpayers' money, and use a deal about a hunting trip," added Knotts, terming the trip to Argentina "totally uncalled for."

Never questioned was why a politician, entrusted with upholding ethics and moral standards for his constituency, enjoys shooting and killing doves.
