The South Carolina Supreme Court today ordered Governor Mark Sanford – the last holdout of GOP governors who refused stimulus money – to apply for the funds. Sanford, whose profile has risen on the back of this case, inciting talk of a 2012 presidential bid, said he would not appeal and plans to sign the applications for the funds on Monday. The Governor had refused $700 million in mostly  education funds — the one small part of South Carolina’s $2.8 billion in stimulus funds over which Sanford had control — unless the legislature agreed to offset the money.
