Sanford flies high on taxpayers' dime

According to the article "Sanford flies high on taxpayers' dime,"
While running for governor in 2002, Sanford zeroed in on travel spending, criticizing Democratic incumbent Gov. Jim Hodges for “lavish spending” on airfare and hotel rooms.
“If I become your governor,” he asserted in a radio ad, “I’ll fix that problem in Columbia.”

Yet, records indicate Sanford has been spending lavishly for personal benefit at taxpayers' expense.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely? Or just another example of political hypocrisy? Does this suggest a need for political or regulatory reform?
