I wonder how far he's going to take his King David metaphor? Here's what he said after the press conference:
I remain committed to rebuilding the trust that has been committed to me over the next 18 months, and it is my hope that I am able to follow the example set by David in the Bible - who after his fall from grace humbly refocused on the work at hand. By doing so, I will ultimately better serve in every area of my life, and I am committed to doing so.
I doubt Sanford is contemplating how King David's sex life ended up, at the beginning of I Kings:
1- Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat.
2- Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat.
3- So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king.
4- And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.
