Iowa Political Alert: Vander Plaats: Republicans should be held to higher standard on family values

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats of Sioux City
tells the Carroll Daily Times Herald that his party should be held to
a higher standard when it comes to values questions of the sort now
swirling around South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, an admitted
adulterer. While extra-marital affairs occur in both parties, it is
fair to judge Republicans more harshly on such matters, Vander Plaats
said. "I think its an added dimension for our party," Vander Plaats
said. "The reason I say that is we highlight one man-one woman
marriage. We highlight family values. And if we do that that's where
the trust comes in. Are you going to walk the walk or just talk the
talk."
