Sanford, who recently mistook his extramarital affair in Argentina for a hike on the Appalachian trail, must be getting serious about escaping an impeachment investigation. He’s hired Ross Garber, the Hartford lawyer who’s best known for his 2004 defense of John “Why Should I Resign If I’ve Done Nothing Wrong?” Rowland. While it didn’t work out too great for Rowland (who resigned in late June after the state Supreme Court ordered that he testify to the House Select Committee of Inquiry and in December waived a federal corruption indictment on his way to a 10-month prison sentence), Garber – called The Baby Food King by certain Capitol reporters who noted the general similarity of his surname to “Gerber” during his unsuccessful run for State Treasurer as a Republican 2002, has gone on to make the big bucks for Shipman and Goodwin. The AP reports that S&G is getting a relatively meager $150/hour.
